Blockchain Innovation: Interviewing The Brightest Minds In Blockchain

Feb 15, 2018

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 more
