Hello lovely listeners, today we talk with Nick White, cofounder of Harmony, a base-layer protocol that is trying to solve some of the scaling problems that come with the blockchain space. Scaling is a huge challenge in the blockchain space: how can we go from 7 transactions per second to the thousands needed to replace traditional payment networks, while maintaining the decentralized ideals of the blockchain community? And even if we get there, does this leave the blockchain vulnerable to off-chain politics? What is the best way forward?
And of course, on that very topic, we had in the news this week Binance choosing to delist Bitcoin SV, the project headed by Australian self-proclaimed “Satoshi Nakamoto” Craig Wright. This looks like very bad news for the project and holders of the coin, but it also raises questions as to how centralized the power in blockchain really is, and who holds this power.
