Serverless Containerization

Serverless Containerization Kubernetes and KNative are driving sequential, scalable and containerized build systems scoped within pods for state sharing.  Knative is a set of open-source components and platform level custom APIs installed on Kubernetes. In the next few minutes I will walk through how to containerize a node.js or spring boot application, deploy it to Google … Continue reading Serverless Containerization

On ZKPs, STARKS, SNARKS

General information on the topic of ZKPs, not necessarily structured but should be ongoing article as I continue to learn about this technology. These are just notes specifically from meetup on ZKPs. Honest computation through Zero Knowledge Proofs is a set of steps. It is this complex math and application of the cryptographic primitives that … Continue reading On ZKPs, STARKS, SNARKS

2019

This year went by extremely fast. I learned a ton about starting a business, traveled around the world, built on new blockchain protocols, went and saw the future and came back to work on that which I believe shaped it in the present. There is the confluence of technology that is happening before our eyes, … Continue reading 2019

Interoperability Protocols

The next-generation of interoperable blockchain frameworks are being built upon: UTXO Transaction Models / State Transitions Proof-of-Authority (POA) / Proof-of-Stake(POS) Aura / Avalanche / Next-gen BFT Consensus Mechanisms SNARGS / Privacy Computation / Zero Knowledge Proofs Formally Verifiable Contracts and Agents Committees / Validator Sets / Routings / Attestations / Digital Jury Sharded sets of … Continue reading Interoperability Protocols

Means of State Replication

The means of developing replicated state machines. Decentralized and permissionless state replication as well as distributed application specific state replication are defining the next era of computing. Replication of data on distributed systems using leaders and workers, distributed micro-services and containers, peer-to-peer blockchain protocols, UTXOs, and digitally enforceable agreements and agents. Blockchain is the next … Continue reading Means of State Replication

2018

There is a shift that is happening; it is rooted in the rapid expansion of decentralized cryptographic protocols. Public private key pairs are becoming common use for securing/storing digital assets, providing proof, determining truth. Where our data lives, who owns the data, and who can that change data are all questions that are being asked. … Continue reading 2018

Interoperable, Scalable Blockchain Protocols

Last week I attended the Wanxiang Global Blockchain Summit in Shanghai. There were a number of sessions but one that really stuck with me was about potential scaling solutions for distributed consensus protocols. There is a concept of polyglot persistence which essentially means certain databases are meant for certain reasons. You have SQL database, noSQL … Continue reading Interoperable, Scalable Blockchain Protocols
