OH006 – Zcash

In this episode Dirk Jaeckel & Ksenya  discuss zcash with Zooko. Unfortunately, Zooko’s voice was not recorded properly. We are sorry and will prevent this in the future.

To get your head around zero knowledge proofs and zcash even better we also recommend two episodes recorded by our fellow podcasters Meher & Brian from a different podcast Epicenter: Ep116 with professor Eli Ben-Sasson and Ep122 with Zooko

Here is the paper that we mention “How to explain Zero-Knowledge Protocols to your children

Towards the middle of the podcast we talk about a practical way of making a nice and useful zcash node, which we intend to make IRL and will shortly publish some basic specs for it.

OH005 – 33c3


This episode was recorded 2016-12-29 in Hamburg. We had a short chat with Ryan Taylor (@AdjyLeak), zooko (@zooko) and Meredith L Patterson (@maradydd) at 33c3.

In this short episode Zooko tells us a cute story of practical love letters hidden in blockchain transactions, Meredith highlights the importance of compilers in the world and Ryan mentions Alexandria library. It’s a bit of a teaser for the 2017, as some of it we will be covering in detail in 2017 on Oktahedron.

Recorded at Sendecentrum at Chaos Communication Congress with the guests: AdjyLeakMeredith L Patterson, Zooko and that TBA guest with a nice podcasting voice, who spoke very little. Hosted by Dirk Jaeckel  & Ksenya of Oktahedron.

Thanx to Tim Pritlove for recommending Sendecentrum, instead of dragging all our audio equipment all the way to the Congress from Berlin, thanx to Chistopher  who was so patient & helpful, and other guys at Sendecentrum . And a great big thanx to our wonderful sound guy in particular.
