This week, Anna catches up with Illia Polosukhin, CTO and co-founder of NEAR, to talk about what's new in the network since last year. They go deeper on some of the topics they discussed last time - such as sharded vs non-sharded blockchains and data availability as well as discuss the long and rocky road to launching a new PoS network, building a validator community and where we might see privacy and zkp tech in Near.
Some episodes we reference in our chat.
- Ep 91: Near Protocol's focus on UX
- Ep 135: Look into Solana
- Ep 156: Stateless Validation with Alin Tomescu
Thank you to this week’s sponsor Trail of Bits.
Trail of Bits has published this guide for building secure contracts with their Crytic offering.
Crytic is a SaaS-based GitHub application created by Trail of Bits that continuously assures your Ethereum smart contracts are safe and functional. It reports build status on every commit and runs a suite of security analyses so you get immediate security feedback.
Check out this guide - which I have added to the show notes - for tips on how to build security into your dapps from the start and how to use the Trail of Bits suite of tools for automated vulnerability detection.
Thank you once again Trail of Bits
