  • Jameson Lopp on NEO Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    And yet NEO still maintains an ~$8B valuation despite proof that it's not even fault tolerant to a single consensus node failing, much less tolerant to Byzantine actors... not sure if the market is irrational or just ignorant.

  • Jameson Lopp on New Economy Movement Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    I've never heard a single person talk about NEM. I'm extremely skeptical that it's actually valued at a billion dollars.

  • Jameson Lopp on Ethereum Classic Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

  • Jameson Lopp on Beam Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    If you're interested in cutting edge cypherpunk protocols you should be keeping an eye on Grin and Beam. . . If the tech works then it ought to be a pretty good way to make private payments.

  • Jameson Lopp on Libra Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    Libra sounds fairly well designed as a permissioned system, but it is facing quite a few long-term challenges. Oh, and it's not a blockchain.
