Almost a year ago, Software Engineering Daily aired a week of shows about decentralized technologies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and IPFS. Bitcoin has established itself as a stable network, but it can only be used for financial transactions. Ethereum is a global computer built on a blockchain, but it does not have the adoption of Bitcoin. IPFS is a distributed data store with an incentivization layer where you can pay strangers to store your content.
Today’s guest is Karl Floersh, an engineer working on decentralized technology. Karl has written several posts about how to build decentralized applications, as well as how the future might look once these decentralized technologies have gotten traction.
