Description

Today’s guest is David Packham, co-founder of EOS42, a block producer candidate based in London. He and his team are currently building an EOS delegation market to facilitate EOS-based token leasing in hopes of building trust and earning the votes required to become an EOS block producer. If you aren’t sure what that means, this episode is for you.

EOS is a “generation 3 blockchain” which is set to launch in early June 2018. It’s creator, Dan Larimer (@bytemaster7), has previously built two other successful blockchain projects, Bitshares and Steem, both which use the Delegated Proof of Stake blockchain technology.

If you are unfamiliar with EOS, here’s a fairly good article detailing various aspects of it blockonomi.com/eos-guide/ and here are the EOS.IO FAQ’s eos.io/faq.html.

I also recommend checking out EOS Go for the latest news and telegram summaries from the various EOS groups online: busy.org/@eosgo

Much of this discussion focuses on many aspects of EOS as a token, a blockchain and a community. From how inflation is used, to the resource mechanics of the EOS token, a little EOS vs ETH and detailing the unique governance system in place to help settle disputes rather than relying on hard forks.

Although we get a bit technical and philosophical at times, I believe this conversation will appeal to both the casual and advanced crypto listener.

David and I chat briefly about his background in finance to how he found cryptocurrencies and why he’s dedicating his time to the EOS community and hopefully become a block producer. If you don’t know what a block producer is, don’t worry and tune in.

We wrap up by discussing the Chintai, the EOS42 Teams token delegation project which allows for dApp teams to essential lease tokens to gain access to the EOS resource pool (bandwidth and storage) so that they can satisfy the requirements of their applications. Leasing would be done in lieu of actually purchasing the EOS tokens. Why would this market exist and what are the incentives? We discuss and answer these questions and much more.

In Liberty,
Ashe

  • [ lifted from their website. ]   When We Started Eris Industries, We Asked Two Questions 1) Is it possible to build applications which have the benefits of interconnectedness, but without servers? It is. Distributed applications can perform the same functions of modern web applications by enlisting users to participate in the management and security of these applications’ data. 2) Is it possible to create data-driven interactions which are both autonomous and legally compliant? It is. Data-driven interactions are not exempt from legal norms and procedures, and platforms capable of operating within existing legal frameworks will be profoundly useful to businesses and individuals alike. With Eris Industries’ open-source Distributed Application Software Stack, developers can rapidly design, test, and deploy distributed applications which are as flexible, user-friendly, and legally compliant as they are secure. Think of us as the node.js of peer-to-peer technology. What will you build on the Eris Stack?

  • http://www.ination.io/ is raising seed capital. What do you guys think about replacing the state’s function of storing legal documents? I assume they mean property registration. Unlike some prominent anarchists, I am in favor of this. Real property such as land titles should be on a blockchain. Thoughts? “Founded in February 2015 by David Mondrus (CEO) and Nathan Wosnack (CCO), iNation is one of the world’s first secure, distributed, and cryptographically verifiable store of legal documents. iNation is one of the first companies to address the coming unbundling of the government services market. More information about the platform, its products/services will be available soon.”
