For DeFi to grow we need a solution for network congestion, fast

We keep hearing more and more about cases of decentralized projects that are not fundamentally decentralized. We also have an issue where blockchain networks lack any serious interoperability, resulting in almost 0 retail adoptions. If I were to start talking about Ethereum, network congestion, and bottlenecks I might as well go on a long tirade. But what I want to do instead is showcase a possible solution, Fusion.
As you may all know, Bitcoin and Ethereum are heading for old highs since stocks and futures opened green this week. If we are lucky we might get to August price levels at $12k. However, that’s not the only thing that we may get from last month. As you all remember, yield farming is all the craze in this bull run and the heightened activity contributed to a severe bottleneck on Ethereum. We saw how that looked like recently when Uniswap did their $1200 UNI airdrop.
Almost everyone did at least one transaction that day and people had to wait for hours for confirmation. I don’t even have to mention the worst thing, $30 in gas fees for a single transaction. People who don’t have a large portfolio are being ‘scammed’ in fees for making a simple token swap. It’s even worse if you are a small fish and wish to start yield farming. You almost lose more money than you make if you decide to farm.
Fusion fixes this by introducing a fully decentralized cross-chain solution that provides an environment with accessible products and services to the masses. Apart from having special APIs that allow developers to build dApps on the Fusion Network that can communicate with every other network, the protocol also has a great fix for scalability issues. The team introduced a ‘Ticketed Proof of Stake (TPoS) consensus mechanism that secures transactions. Average transaction time needs around 15 seconds for confirmation, supporting 2500 to 3000 TPS.
They also have a custody solution that completely changes decentralization. Their Distributed Control Rights Management (DCRM) technology distributes private key storage to multiple nodes through sharding. In most projects, you’ll see that the devs implemented a centralized server for custody purposes. That kind of model is practically useless as hackers have an easy point of attack.
DCRM is so powerful that many leading cryptologists in the world have approved it. Including experts such as CompSci professor at CUNY Rosario Gennaro, CompSci professor at the University of Versailles Louis Goubin, CryptoExperts CEO Pascal Paillier, and researcher from the department of CompSci at Cornell University Steven Goldfeder.
Fusion already proved its useability to the world with its Anyswap DEX. Anyswap is based on the Fusion network which in return provides farmers with the lowest fees in DeFi. Imagine paying $0.0001 per transaction for a simple token swap on a DEX instead of having to pay up to $40 on Uniswap. The protocol even has a native governance model with the ANY token through which users can bring changes through a voting process. Anyswap is practically what Uniswap would look like if it had a layer 2 scalability solution.
In the end, remember to do your OWN research. But I also have to impose that there is definitely something worthwhile with both Fusion and Anyswap as they offer everything that developers are currently struggling to deliver.

When Avalanche on Tezos? (scaling at layer 1)

In May 2018, Team Rocket layed out their revolutionary white paper on how to create a high scalability blockchain 3K TPS at layer 1 while remaining highly decentralized (2000+ nodes) without sidechains, sub 1 second finality, no transaction fees/gas with metastability (much more resiliant than 51% attack vector). Lots of amazing inovation here.
In Oct of 2018, we had Tezos Dev Edward Tate of Nomadic Labs start an implementation to ammend the Tezos protocol to implement Avalanche so we could in theory have a massively scalable, decentralized and super fast finality blockchain - something we are lacking still today. This project was funded by the Foundation. The name of the project was Igloo, but looking at the gitlab repository, it looks like work halted on it 1 year ago. Edward Tate has moved on working on other stuff.
Fast forward to today, and we now have Emin Gun Sirer is now launching his own blockchain "Avalanche". Emin, btw was a Tezos ICO advisor who was post-Tezos launch doing research at Cornell University to scale Tezos, but is now doing his own blockchain & targetting the same sector as Tezos originally was focusing on: Revolutionizing the financial sector.
Meanwhile Tezos still has no signicant scalability implemented despite murbard thinking we could 100x TPS 1 year ago without even making many major changes. Ethereum 2.0 is going down the sharding route, which Emin claimed will result in many head aches because of latency and other more complex state related issues.
Questions:
  1. What do the core dev Tezos really think of Avalanche? Especially now that Avalanche testnet has proven itself with 5K TPS w/1000 nodes and sub 1 second finality?
  2. What about murbard? I know you stated there's lower hanging fruit, but I don't recall your comments on the Avalanche protocol before. Considering you follow core and consensus protocols pretty closely and know Emin personally, you must have an opinion. Care to comment? :-)
  3. Why did Igloo/Ed Tate stop work on it 1 year ago?
  4. Are there any plans to upgrade Tezos to an Avalanche scaling solution? If so, what's the progress/time-line on this?
  5. Avalanche is a DAG w/UTXO structure. Tezos is dPoS with "Account Model" (a la ETH), so no UTXO. Even if Tezos wanted to upgrade its layer 1 to implement the Avalanche protocol, it sounds to me like this would be a massive software development under taking, right? I mean, we'd be stripping out core parts of Tezos, like switching a Diesel engine on a car for a lithium battery Tesla engine, while the car is being driven. On top of that it'd have to be done in OCaml, which is not at all trivial. Is this really feasable within a reasonable amount of time, like how long are we talking about if we really wanted to do this?
  6. What are the latest thoughts on how to scale Tezos at Layer 1? I know Tezos is working on Plasma at Layer 2 and TenderBake, but as Emin puts it, that's an old classical consensus model and suffers from various trade offs, as does the Nakamoto (Bitcoin's) consensus algo. The Avalanche team published this simple consensus protocol comparison matrix. Emin claims Avalanche is the best of both worlds. Ethereum meanwhile is working in 6 different scaling directions at once, but NONE of them have all to the advantages of the Avalanche Protocol see: ETH scaling matrix comparison, but clearly scaling matters and it's arguably the most complex thing to implement on blockchains while retaining high decentralization. So what are the Tezos' scaling plans in the works or being seriously considered for implementation?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Thanks for the gold, it's not necessary, but thank you.

It will not be an exaggeration if we say that Blockchain has impacted the industries across the globe. This has been a positive move that has changed the shape of industries. Not only it has impacted the business process, but the application of Blockchain has also created new job opportunities that have helped in increasing employment. The fact is that there is a gap between demand and supply. The number of individuals has expertise in Blockchain, which is less than the demand for Blockchain experts. To fill this gap, we have many online and offline platforms coming up with Blockchain certification programs. As per 2018’s report of Coinbase, around 56% of the top universities offer courses in either Blockchain or Cryptocurrency.
Some of the universities that made to the list are Cornell University, MIT, and New York University. The reason such top-rated institutes are offering certification courses in Blockchain and cryptocurrency is that there is demand from students, Coursera surveyed 735 students, and out of the 34% had shown interest in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency.
As per Cointelegraph, at present around, 70% of the top 40 universities are offering at least one class of Blockchain or cryptocurrency. The reason for the growing popularity of Blockchain and cryptocurrency certification is that this is considered to be a technology of the future. People are opting for these courses to become a part of the successful Blockchain developer. Besides, they also want to become eligible for the lucrative Blockchain engineer salary package.
Growing Demand For Blockchain Experts In The Field of Blockchain:
As per the freelance marketplace, Upwork, the demand for Blockchain experts has grown by 2000% year-on-year. It’s not just the demand for Blockchain experts that has spurred to the demand for Blockchain professionals, also, the salaries which Blockchain professional has been a key factor that people are looking for Blockchain certification. Blockchain professionals draw salary in a range of $36,000 to over $200,000 for senior positions.
How to proceed?
Now that you know that many top universities are offering Blockchain certification courses, and if you wish to become a part of these courses, you need to enrol for the same. For some students, feasibility can be an issue, in such a case you can join online certification courses offered by Blockchain Council. These certification courses are designed as per the industry standards and entail all the information about Blockchain.
Blockchain Council offers myriads of certification courses like:

  1. Certification in Blockchain
  2. Certification course in Ethereum
  3. Certification course in Corda
  4. Certification course in Cryptocurrency trading
  5. Certification courses in Hyperledger
  6. Certification course in Bitcoin
These are a few of the many courses offered by Blockchain Council. These courses are online, and a fresher or even a working professional can apply for these courses.
Conclusion-
Blockchain is growing technology, it has a scope of a lot of improvements, but the pace with which it is growing is commendable. Companies like Volvo, Wallmart, Facebook, Microsoft, are a few names from the list of many that have applied Blockchain technology, or they are working on its improvisation.
So, if you too wish to be a part of this industry, its time to enrol for Blockchain certification today.

Avalanche [AVAX] will launch in a few days!

Created by Emin Gün Sirer, Kevin Sekniqi and Ted Yin from Cornell University, Avalanche is using a completely novel consensus mechanism: Avalanche consensus.
After Nakamoto consensus we all know from Bitcoin, Avalanche will be challenging the difficulties, Bitcoin (and also Ethereum) is expecting currently.
Most likely, Avalanche is about to bring the next step in Blockchain adoption. Here is why:
- Testnet of 1k nodes from many different countries, showing how large Avalanche can scale.
- Already proven 4.5k transactions per second
- Everyone can launch a subnet on Avalanche and create a buzz like ETH in 2017
- Their public sale was sold out after 4 hours even during a hard time when no one still trusts in ICO coins.
- Coins from Ethereum genesis block were invested in their sale
- BITMAIN is invested in AVAX
- Avalanche is admired for this new approach and got already positive comments from Ethereum, Cardano and Chainlink.
- Avalanche fits perfectly to be used by DeFi applications requiring fast tx confirmation times and large scaling solutions to avoid problems like ETH is experiencing right now.
Mainnet will launch in late August and after that, it can be bought first time on exchanges.
People want new, interesting and groundbreaking projects. Avalanche will enabling DeFi to work properly, not right now on ETH where you can send a tx for cheap money. AVAX will be extremely challenging to ETH.

Charles Hoskinson Reveals His 9 Favorite Crypto Projects

Cointelegraph recently sat down for an interview with Charles Hoskinson, who is the co-founder of Ethereum and CEO and founder of IOHK — the company developing Cardano. During that interview, Hoskinson shared details about some of the crypto projects that he is most interested in.
Ergo
“It's one of the most revolutionary cryptocurrencies ever built. Got so many crazy ideas like non-outsourceable puzzles and sigma protocols and pruning the blockchain and roller chains. All this crazy stuff. Even has a proof of no premine.”
Ergo was founded by Hoskinson’s “favorite technologist”, Alex Chepurnoy, who also contributed to the development of Cardano. It is a PoW blockchain platform with Turing complete smart contracts that employs a number of advanced features like zero-knowledge proofs, ring signatures, oracles, and adjustable block size.
ZCash
“They've advanced the entire discussion of zero knowledge cryptography. We've borrowed some of their stuff. We've innovated on some of the things.” … “They’re carrying the banner of privacy and the banner of inclusive accountability, and both of these things are incredibly important as a core.”
Zcash is a privacy coin that allows for both transparent and private transactions. Hoskinson has a lot of respect for ZCash and their work with zero knowledge proofs.
StarkWare
“Those are wonderful people and they're incredibly smart people. And again, they're allowing us to do amazing things with scale.”
Hoskinson likes the fact that StarkWare’s development also helps Cardano to improve its scalability. The company was co-founded by Eli Ben Sasson, who was one of Zcash’s founding scientists. Its goal is to enable on-chain scalability through the usage of zero-knowledge proofs.
Lightning Labs
“I have a lot of respect for Lightning Labs. <...> And that's a good solution, if not for scalability, for interoperability between cryptocurrencies. And they seem to be easy enough to talk to, to collaborate with, and fairly open people, good people.”
The company is building second layer solutions for the Bitcoin network. Their mission is to offer users a way to send and receive money more efficiently than ever before. Hoskinson noted that he approves of Elizabeth Stark’s specification-driven approach to development.
Dash
“I have a lot of respect for the Dash community. I think they were one of the first to really prove out a cryptocurrency treasury and show the power of a treasury. And they even sponsored research at Arizona State University with it.”
Dash is another project on Hoskinson’s list that is focused on privacy. It employs two layer consensus — with master nodes sitting on top of the proof-of-work base layer. Hoskinson believes that Dash proved “the power of a treasury”. He also has an appreciation for Dash’s community.
Tezos
“I don't really like their community too much because they're so toxic and negative towards us and they just never seem to let an opportunity kick us when we're down, escape. But overall, I do have a lot of respect for at least the philosophy and the technology that they've been deploying.”
Tezos is a proof of stake blockchain with on-chain governance. Tezos was created to provide the safety and code correctness required for assets and other high value use cases. Hoskinson praises Tezos, despite its community’s perceived toxicity towards Cardano.
Algorand
“... they are another one of the science coins and we all kind of support each other. Even though we get academically competitive, we're able to reference each other's work and learn from each other and grow from each other.”
Algorand is another proof-of-stake blockchain that was founded by Turing-award recipient, Silvio Micali. It’s main goal is to create a transparent system in which all users can achieve success via decentralization.
Avalanche
“I think Avalanche has some merit as well, especially in the IoT [Internet of Things] space in Ava is going to be an interesting coin that comes out. And there's a lot of interesting ideas there.”
Founded by another preeminent scholar, Cornell professor Emin Gün Sirer, Avalanche promises scalability and operability. Hoskinson is optimistic about Avalanche’s coin, which pays for fees and provides the basic unit of account between the multiple blockchains deployed on the larger AVA network.
Basic Attention Token
“... the growth curve and the adoption of BATs has been just phenomenal. And I think they're poised on a five or 10 years to become a major player in the very least displaced Firefox completely and potentially even have a meaningful share of the browser market, which could translate to billions of dollars of advertising revenue that's not connected to, you know, the cartels that exist and allow people to avoid being deplatformed.”
Brave browser rewards users for watching advertisements by distributing Basic Attention Tokens. Brave was founded by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and founder of the Mozilla project. Hoskinson believes that BAT has the potential to disrupt the “cartels” that control online advertising.
It is not surprising that Hoskinson, who is building Cardano with a research-first ethos and who studied number theory in school, has picked quite a few projects that both share his philosophies and focus on privacy.

The best arguments for major mainstream political positions:
Fascism and Neo-Conservatism
On Dictatorship and The Concept of The Political Carl Schmitt
Note:
Some have argued that neoconservativism has been influenced by Schmitt Most notably the legal opinions offered by Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo et al. by invoking the unitary executive theory to justify highly controversial policies in the war on terror—such as introducing unlawful combatant status which purportedly would eliminate protection by the Geneva Conventions torture, NSA electronic surveillance program—mimic his writings.Professor David Luban said in 2011 that "[a] Lexis search reveals five law review references to Schmitt between 1980 and 1990; 114 between 1990 and 2000; and 420 since 2000, with almost twice as many in the last five years as the previous five"

AMA - Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts (IC3)

Hi ethereum, we're the faculty from IC3, the Initiative for Cryptocurrencies and Contracts. We do research on topics relevant to cryptocurrency, teach, and bring high-tech software to production. Around this subreddit, I think you may know us best for Selfish Mining, Sprites & PISA, GasToken, Moratorium on the DAO, though we have a long list of projects and regularly top the charts of blockchain-relevant research.
We'll answer any questions you have... from technical questions about picking apart cryptography models, to life as academics participating in open source communities.
This AMA will run from 9 AM EDT to 5 PM EDT. Confirmed available:
IC3 is an initiative from faculty members at Cornell University, Cornell Tech, CMU, ETH Zurich, EPFL, UC Berkeley, UCL, UIUC, and the Technion. To learn more about IC3, visit our website at www.initc3.org

Charles Hoskinson Reveals His 9 Favorite Crypto Projects

Cointelegraph recently sat down for an interview with Charles Hoskinson, who is the co-founder of Ethereum and CEO and founder of IOHK — the company developing Cardano. During that interview, Hoskinson shared details about some of the crypto projects that he is most interested in.
Ergo
“It's one of the most revolutionary cryptocurrencies ever built. Got so many crazy ideas like non-outsourceable puzzles and sigma protocols and pruning the blockchain and roller chains. All this crazy stuff. Even has a proof of no premine.”
Ergo was founded by Hoskinson’s “favorite technologist”, Alex Chepurnoy, who also contributed to the development of Cardano. It is a PoW blockchain platform with Turing complete smart contracts that employs a number of advanced features like zero-knowledge proofs, ring signatures, oracles, and adjustable block size.
ZCash
“They've advanced the entire discussion of zero knowledge cryptography. We've borrowed some of their stuff. We've innovated on some of the things.” … “They’re carrying the banner of privacy and the banner of inclusive accountability, and both of these things are incredibly important as a core.”
Zcash is a privacy coin that allows for both transparent and private transactions. Hoskinson has a lot of respect for ZCash and their work with zero knowledge proofs.
StarkWare
“Those are wonderful people and they're incredibly smart people. And again, they're allowing us to do amazing things with scale.”
Hoskinson likes the fact that StarkWare’s development also helps Cardano to improve its scalability. The company was co-founded by Eli Ben Sasson, who was one of Zcash’s founding scientists. Its goal is to enable on-chain scalability through the usage of zero-knowledge proofs.
Lightning Labs
“I have a lot of respect for Lightning Labs. <...> And that's a good solution, if not for scalability, for interoperability between cryptocurrencies. And they seem to be easy enough to talk to, to collaborate with, and fairly open people, good people.”
The company is building second layer solutions for the Bitcoin network. Their mission is to offer users a way to send and receive money more efficiently than ever before. Hoskinson noted that he approves of Elizabeth Stark’s specification-driven approach to development.
Dash
“I have a lot of respect for the Dash community. I think they were one of the first to really prove out a cryptocurrency treasury and show the power of a treasury. And they even sponsored research at Arizona State University with it.”
Dash is another project on Hoskinson’s list that is focused on privacy. It employs two layer consensus — with master nodes sitting on top of the proof-of-work base layer. Hoskinson believes that Dash proved “the power of a treasury”. He also has an appreciation for Dash’s community.
Tezos
“I don't really like their community too much because they're so toxic and negative towards us and they just never seem to let an opportunity kick us when we're down, escape. But overall, I do have a lot of respect for at least the philosophy and the technology that they've been deploying.”
Tezos is a proof of stake blockchain with on-chain governance. Tezos was created to provide the safety and code correctness required for assets and other high value use cases. Hoskinson praises Tezos, despite its community’s perceived toxicity towards Cardano.
Algorand
“... they are another one of the science coins and we all kind of support each other. Even though we get academically competitive, we're able to reference each other's work and learn from each other and grow from each other.”
Algorand is another proof-of-stake blockchain that was founded by Turing-award recipient, Silvio Micali. It’s main goal is to create a transparent system in which all users can achieve success via decentralization.
Avalanche
“I think Avalanche has some merit as well, especially in the IoT [Internet of Things] space in Ava is going to be an interesting coin that comes out. And there's a lot of interesting ideas there.”
Founded by another preeminent scholar, Cornell professor Emin Gün Sirer, Avalanche promises scalability and operability. Hoskinson is optimistic about Avalanche’s coin, which pays for fees and provides the basic unit of account between the multiple blockchains deployed on the larger AVA network.
Basic Attention Token
“... the growth curve and the adoption of BATs has been just phenomenal. And I think they're poised on a five or 10 years to become a major player in the very least displaced Firefox completely and potentially even have a meaningful share of the browser market, which could translate to billions of dollars of advertising revenue that's not connected to, you know, the cartels that exist and allow people to avoid being deplatformed.”
Brave browser rewards users for watching advertisements by distributing Basic Attention Tokens. Brave was founded by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and founder of the Mozilla project. Hoskinson believes that BAT has the potential to disrupt the “cartels” that control online advertising.
It is not surprising that Hoskinson, who is building Cardano with a research-first ethos and who studied number theory in school, has picked quite a few projects that both share his philosophies and focus on privacy.

How to dive deep into political theory and philosophy: The Big List

This is a list of (largely) contemporary thinkers, books and video content aimed as a reference for questions like -
"What should I read next?", "Who should I follow?" or "What are the best resources for [certain political topic]?"
The core list comes from Chomsky, and the books and people he's cited or praised. But the list has significantly expanded since then. Feel free to comment about any good books or channels you think should be on this list.

The best arguments for major mainstream political positions:
Fascism and Neo-Conservatism
On Dictatorship and The Concept of The Political Carl Schmitt
Note:
Some have argued that neoconservativism has been influenced by Schmitt Most notably the legal opinions offered by Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo et al. by invoking the unitary executive theory to justify highly controversial policies in the war on terror—such as introducing unlawful combatant status which purportedly would eliminate protection by the Geneva Conventions torture, NSA electronic surveillance program—mimic his writings.Professor David Luban said in 2011 that "[a] Lexis search reveals five law review references to Schmitt between 1980 and 1990; 114 between 1990 and 2000; and 420 since 2000, with almost twice as many in the last five years as the previous five"

Right-Wing Libertarianism
Anarchy, State, Utopia by Robert Nozick

The company is building second layer solutions for the Bitcoin network. Their mission is to offer users a way to send and receive money more efficiently than ever before. Hoskinson noted that he approves of Elizabeth Stark’s specification-driven approach to development.
Dash
“I have a lot of respect for the Dash community. I think they were one of the first to really prove out a cryptocurrency treasury and show the power of a treasury. And they even sponsored research at Arizona State University with it.”
Dash is another project on Hoskinson’s list that is focused on privacy. It employs two layer consensus — with master nodes sitting on top of the proof-of-work base layer. Hoskinson believes that Dash proved “the power of a treasury”. He also has an appreciation for Dash’s community.
Tezos
“I don't really like their community too much because they're so toxic and negative towards us and they just never seem to let an opportunity kick us when we're down, escape. But overall, I do have a lot of respect for at least the philosophy and the technology that they've been deploying.”
Tezos is a proof of stake blockchain with on-chain governance. Tezos was created to provide the safety and code correctness required for assets and other high value use cases. Hoskinson praises Tezos, despite its community’s perceived toxicity towards Cardano.
Algorand
“... they are another one of the science coins and we all kind of support each other. Even though we get academically competitive, we're able to reference each other's work and learn from each other and grow from each other.”
Algorand is another proof-of-stake blockchain that was founded by Turing-award recipient, Silvio Micali. It’s main goal is to create a transparent system in which all users can achieve success via decentralization.
Avalanche
“I think Avalanche has some merit as well, especially in the IoT [Internet of Things] space in Ava is going to be an interesting coin that comes out. And there's a lot of interesting ideas there.”
Founded by another preeminent scholar, Cornell professor Emin Gün Sirer, Avalanche promises scalability and operability. Hoskinson is optimistic about Avalanche’s coin, which pays for fees and provides the basic unit of account between the multiple blockchains deployed on the larger AVA network.
Basic Attention Token
“... the growth curve and the adoption of BATs has been just phenomenal. And I think they're poised on a five or 10 years to become a major player in the very least displaced Firefox completely and potentially even have a meaningful share of the browser market, which could translate to billions of dollars of advertising revenue that's not connected to, you know, the cartels that exist and allow people to avoid being deplatformed.”
Brave browser rewards users for watching advertisements by distributing Basic Attention Tokens. Brave was founded by Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and founder of the Mozilla project. Hoskinson believes that BAT has the potential to disrupt the “cartels” that control online advertising.
It is not surprising that Hoskinson, who is building Cardano with a research-first ethos and who studied number theory in school, has picked quite a few projects that both share his philosophies and focus on privacy.

'''
Cointelegraph recently sat down for an interview with Charles Hoskinson, who is the co-founder of Ethereum and CEO and founder of IOHK — the company developing Cardano. During that interview, Hoskinson shared details about some of the crypto projects that he is most interested in.
Ergo
“It's one of the most revolutionary cryptocurrencies ever built. Got so many crazy ideas like non-outsourceable puzzles and sigma protocols and pruning the blockchain and roller chains. All this crazy stuff. Even has a proof of no premine.”
Ergo was founded by Hoskinson’s “favorite technologist”, Alex Chepurnoy, who also contributed to the development of Cardano. It is a PoW blockchain platform with Turing complete smart contracts that employs a number of advanced features like zero-knowledge proofs, ring signatures, oracles, and adjustable block size.
ZCash
“They've advanced the entire discussion of zero knowledge cryptography. We've borrowed some of their stuff. We've innovated on some of the things.” … “They’re carrying the banner of privacy and the banner of inclusive accountability, and both of these things are incredibly important as a core.”
Zcash is a privacy coin that allows for both transparent and private transactions. Hoskinson has a lot of respect for ZCash and their work with zero knowledge proofs.
StarkWare
“Those are wonderful people and they're incredibly smart people. And again, they're allowing us to do amazing things with scale.”
Hoskinson likes the fact that StarkWare’s development also helps Cardano to improve its scalability. The company was co-founded by Eli Ben Sasson, who was one of Zcash’s founding scientists. Its goal is to enable on-chain scalability through the usage of zero-knowledge proofs.
Lightning Labs
“I have a lot of respect for Lightning Labs. <...> And that's a good solution, if not for scalability, for interoperability between cryptocurrencies. And they seem to be easy enough to talk to, to collaborate with, and fairly open people, good people.”

Will Bitcoin be beaten by Avalanche's flexibility?

Emin Gun Sirer, which has a lot of achievements and has made a lot of contributions to Bitcoin ecosystem, till he felt a new consensus mechanism was needed for blockchain utility beyond money , is launching his own cryptocurrency coin and network with funding from some of the biggest venture capitalists in the field.
His startup, Ava Labs Inc., raised $6 million for the project in February from the likes of Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain and MetaStable, and it’s debuting a test version of its network Thursday. The issuance of a coin will happen when the network is launched publicly in the coming months.
Ava is working to secure large corporations as partners, and is planning to establish Ava chapters in cities throughout the world, Sirer said.
Will it work?
