Today we talk with Shibin Li from ContentBox. ContentBox is empowering a decentralized digital content ecosystem.

For over a decade we have witnessed explosive growth of the digital content industry led by a variety of web and mobile content platforms such as Reddit, Youtube and Spotify. It has become an indispensable part of our modern daily life, with audio and video streaming constituting 70% of Internet data traffic. However, the success and fairness of the industry is impeded by several long standing challenges facing creators, consumers, advertisers, and distributors of digital content. ContentBox offers an option for content creators to make more and the centralized digital content platforms to make less.

Welcome to our flashback series where we give you access to archived shows on our feed that are so outdated you can't find it on our feed anymore. With crypto beign so unpredictable, we thought it would be fun for our new listeners to check out episodes of our older content. It's like opening up a time capsule! Originally aired in October 2015, Brock Pierce joined us in the studio. In addition to that we chat about the film DOPE. Does it hurt or help bitcoin? Is it even a good movie?! Also, Demetrick impersonates black celebrities endorsing bitcoin. It’s OK, he’s black too. He can do dat! Holla! OH YEAAAAHHH COMING IN WITH THE ELBOW SMASH!

A set of notes were just released for a revised version of the Casper protocol which merges its goals with sharding research. It uses a beacon chain to behave as a source of randomness with the RANDAO being central to that chain. This enables a commitee of validators to be selected for validating individual shards rather than the entire chain and sign it using BLS signatures. Corey Petty and Collin Cusce discuss these notes and try to suss out what this means for Ethereum if it were implemented.

Today we talk with Tayo Dada from Uncloak. Uncloak is the world's first blockchain powered cyber threat solution putting businesses one step ahead of hackers. Uncloak™ is a unique and fully scalable blockchain powered technology that enables businesses to monitor, protect themselves against and eliminate cyber threats, staying one step ahead of the hacker. Uncloak will build its own threat detection database by using advanced AI technology to crawl the public and private internet looking for the latest cyber security threats, which are converted into security signatures and added to the Uncloak threat detection system to check if the vulnerabilities exist across the subscribed client base networks and infrastructure. Where vulnerabilities exist, the end user will be notified immediately so that corrective action can be taken.

TrueBit is one of the more impressive decentralized projects, and we're really excited to have had the chance to interview Harley Swick, core developer on the project. We talk to him about TrueBit, how it works, it's significance, how it differentiates itself from other off-chain computation projects. We go over some of the many, many applications of decentralized off-chain computation projects and how they can improve world resource utilization. Amazing and really exciting stuff!

If you work in payments fraud, you get an appreciation for the weaknesses of our financial infrastructure. Really, it’s kind of a mess. As an engineer, when you see a system full of technical debt and bad design choices, there’s only one conclusion you can reach: this thing is due for a rewrite. That, in large part, is what made our guest, Haseeb Qureshi, catch the crypto bug. In June 2017, he decided the blockchain space was too interesting to sit on the sidelines. He said goodbye to Airbnb so I could pursue crypto full-time. Since then he's worked on some security research, did a lot of writing and speaking, and taught a course on cryptocurrencies at the Bradfield School of Computer Science. We have a great chat with Haseeb, amongst other things! In addition, Dee and Cello chat about the 20 Most Influential Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Experts list and pick it apart!

A nice breezy mid week for you guys as we wrap up the month of May. Ethereum, the world’s second largest cryptocurrency, endured a significant downtrend in the past week – falling nearly 25% in price. With the EOS mainnet launch only days away, questionable sell-offs of ETH suggest the competing smart contract platform may be the price crash culprit. We caht about this and more. The Crypto Dog joins us in the studio to talk humble beginnings. For those of you unfamiliar with the Dog Pound and want to hear more on what they're all about, this is a good episode to start with. Strap in, gents!

Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish (known collectively as 'The Cool Kids')  have been busy in the booth as a duo again. As a big fan of their music, we've known them to drop lines about crypto in their songs from time to time. After a half decade hiatus they've returned with their new album Special Edition Grand Master Deluxe and have graced us with their time for a little Q&A. Their new song titled “Ripple” is out today, and it’s the ultimate cryptocurrency anthem for partying hard. “They taking bitcoin in the strip club” is the chant for the hook. We invite them to come on the show this week to talk about a variety of topics, from the music industry, to crypto, and they even spit a freestyle for us!

We talk with Mahnush Movahedi of DFINITY to explain the fundamental innovation behind DFINITY's consensus system. She explains how threshold relay works, how groups are determined in consensus, and how cryptographic deterministic randomness drive consensus as a fast and light-weight substitute for Proof of Work. We learn about how this impacts the architecture for state and network protocol design. This episode really shows why Mahnush, a PhD Yale postdoctoral computer scientist with a focus on multiparty computation, would choose DFINITY as the project to join to innovate on consensus protocols.
