,

 

I have the following two questions:

 

  1. What are your thoughts on the scaling solution for Plasma? I ask this in terms of the computational potential of the Ethereum blockchain. Will this solve the scalability issues of Ethereum? I am referring to 'Plasma Coins'.
  2. Does Ether need more institutional trading opportunities and institutional investors for it to really take on Bitcoin in terms of Market Cap? 
  3. Can blockchain effectively and efficiently fix the internet? 

Thanks

I want to echo TF's first point - are you referring to the talk by vitalik at the Ethereum Community Conference in Paris on Friday? I think that's an important one.

 

Also - Atlas Neue? Tried to have a look online and the website is very limited at the moment as i guess they are still setting it up, but what exactly is it? And when will it be live? I watched the youtube ETHLDN meetup thing recently so I can see the need to give tech minded people some business direction, but I dont get the whole IDO concept? 

 

in regards to SlockIt - how can you run an open source project like the Ethereum Computer thing you're doing? What's to stop someone just nicking your code? I guess that goes for all blockchain stuff really ... obviously that's Litecoin and the whole 2012 crypto scene ripping the source code and making minor tweaks. 

 

aaaand quick fire

  • what  are some of the biggest changes have you seen in the crypto space since you joined it? 
  • Are there any cyclical patterns in crypto? (i.e. plateau, hype, crash, plateau, hype, crash) Not necessarily from a price point of view but tech as well.
  • How can someone whos not super techie (like I doubt I can mine / validate / stake when it comes) get more into crypto? Have a possitive effect etc, apart from just buying a coin? 
  • Theres a lot of #ETHLDN vids - which one is the best / your fav?
  • Will bitcoin core ever become obsolete?

 

really looking forward to this one :) Any chance you could give community an AMA reddit style after? or on reddit even?

The NTY and wired have recently released articles on women in finance, I guess cos we just had Int Woman’s Day. Why are there less women in finance and how can we get more involved?

 

There’s a lot of chat on regulation at the moment. Can crypto be regulated? Does crypto fit into any one of these existing frameworks? Or should a new structure be created?

Thanks all.  - I'll reword your first two questions like this when I send them to the TV team if that's ok? (So they fit, if picked, on the ticker at the bottom of the screen)

 

  1. What is the Atlas Neue project you're working on and when will it be live?
  2. How can you run open source projects like the slock.it ethereum computer software without others copying the code?

But all else being equal (putting aside the trade issue) and given the overall good state of the US economy all the main indices should be drifting up out of this period of consolidation. But the big levels always matter and any breach takes some effort to undo and a drop below 12544 puts us back into a prior range whose bottom is indeed around 11800."
