Markets Are Eating the World

The Expert View ·
Featuring Taylor Pearson

Published on: June 25th, 2019 • Duration: 18 minutes

In this interview, Taylor Pearson, author of "The End of Jobs," uses selectorate theory as a framework for understanding the trade-offs between efficiency and robustness in various blockchain regimes. On one end of the spectrum is Bitcoin, where the roadmap and development schedule is slow and incremental. On the other hand, Ethereum is a smart contract platform more designed to "move fast and break things." Pearson believes that as crypto applications go beyond currency, understanding the natural trade-off between efficiency and robustness will be crucial as different scaling solutions are used in new arenas. Filmed on June 12, 2019 in New York.

    Good interview, but again, please voice over the questions. I just listen to these, and trying to guess what the question was that he is currently answering is frustrating.

      Agreed. I’m audio-only and generally have no idea what was asked.
