About this Episode

This week we catch up with Zaki Manian, Director at Tendermint, the company building Cosmos architecture, and co-founder of Iqlusion Validator. We chat about the blockchain in Silicon Valley, why SF loves DeFi, the challenge of balancing pragmatism and regulation with a decentralised ideology, the nuances of PoS systems, the wins of 2019 and what is on the horizon.

Here are links to a few things we discuss:
-Tarun Chitra's paper on how the existance of derivatives can undermine the security of a PoS system
-Blog post summarizing Tarun's paper here
