Jason Teutsch is a mathematician (PhD) and computer scientist
whose research focuses on distributed systems, security, game
theory, and algorithmic randomness.
Jason is also the founder of TrueBit - a scalable verification
solution for Blockchains.
In this episode, Jason and I discuss:
- The computational limitations of Ethereum smart contracts
- The definition of smart contract (hint: it’s not the same as a
legal contract), gas, and the gas limit on Ethereum
- The “Verifier’s Dilemma,” a situation whereby Blockchain miners
have little to no incentives to verify transactions (which is the
problem TrueBit solves)
- Use cases for TrueBit, including LivePeer – a decentralized
video streaming platform, AI, “Interactive ICOs,” and much
