Episode 304: ScaDe with Emre Tekisalp of Coda Protocol

Crypto Token Talk

In today’s episode Melrose PR Director of Content Strategy Nikki Del Principe guest-hosts Emre Tekisalp. Emre is the Head of Business Development at O(1) Labs, the team behind Coda Protocol. Before joining O(1) Labs, Emre was at Coinbase, the largest exchange in the U.S., and found his way into crypto back in 2015 through roles at Ripple and a few other projects. When you look at blockchains in general, starting with Bitcoin, one of the biggest struggles is how to make these virtual machines more accessible, personal, and powerful. Emre describes this dilemma as the "infamous scaling debate." Coda addresses this problem by deploying zero knowledge proofs to keep the blockchain at a tiny fixed size. At Coda, the data needed to download the blockchain is only about 20 kilobytes, which, when compared to other blockchains that require hundreds of gigabytes, is incredibly small and lightweight. Coda recently introduced a new term, ScaDe ScaDe (Scalability-per-unit-of-Decentralization), that incorporates decentralization into the measure of scalability rather than only focusing on throughput (transactions per second). With its Genesis token program underway, Coda is well on its way to being highly decentralized for its upcoming mainnet launch. Topics covered: - The problem Coda Protocol addresses and the solution it offers- Emre’s view on blockchain’s scalability problem and the introduction of a new term for measuring scalability- Emre's thoughts on Libra and how it familiarizes people with the concept of digital money- How blockchains can scale for mobile and why that is so important- More about Coda’s milestones and the recently launched Genesis token program- Coda’s ultimate vision for the future- Emre’s predictions and hopes for the blockchain industry- The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Coda and crypto in general- Emre’s recommendations on resources for people to dive deeper into the blockchain space Links to Resources: Coda Protocol website: https://codaprotocol.com/ Coda Protocol on Twitter: https://twitter.com/codaprotocol Coda Protocol on Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/Vexf4ED Apply to the Genesis token program: https://codaprotocol.com/genesis Solving the Scalability Trilemma Blog Post: https://codaprotocol.com/blog/solving-the-scalability-trilemma Coinbase video on Cryptocurrency and the Future of Money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWeCQkIJNkY Hash Power Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/is/podcast/hash-power-ep-1-understanding-blockchains/id1154105909?i=1000392721406 "Why Decentralization Matters" via OneZero Medium: https://onezero.medium.com/why-decentralization-matters-5e3f79f7638e

With more "high-throughput" blockchains launching in 2020, each promising to change the world, is transactional throughput the best way to think about these projects?

Ep. 317 - The World's...Smallest Blockchain? w/ Emre Tekisalp of Coda


In this episode of CRYPTO 101, brought to you by eToro, we sat down with Emre Tekisalp of Coda, the world’s smallest blockchain. This was one of our more technical conversations, where we learned a lot about Zero Knowledge Proofs and the Ouroboros consensus mechanism that several blockchains use to secure their transactions.

32 Coda: Sound Money and SNARKs with Emre Tekisalp and Brad Cohn

Chorus One Podcast

While most other upcoming smart contract platforms seem to have identified throughput as the major bottleneck for why blockchains haven’t found mass adoption yet, Coda has focused on a different part of the stack that they perceive to be a much more important issue plaguing blockchain, which is how long it takes for new participants to verify the blockchain. Coda is using recursive zk-SNARK technology which enables them to create a constant-sized blockchain, making it really easy for clients to verify the correctness of the ledger. In this episode, Meher and Felix are joined by Emre Tekisalp, director of BD, and Brad Cohn, strategy & operations from the O(1) Labs team to discuss Coda’s approach to building a new blockchain platform. The podcast starts out going into the background of the two, a high-level overview of Coda follows and we discuss what Coda’s unique design enables and cover the go-to-market strategy of the project. From there the discussion leads us to discuss monetary policy and the implications of taxes on Proof-of-Stake networks. After this quick detour, we get back to discussing how the Coda protocol technically works leading to an extensive celebration of zk-SNARK technology during which Brad and Emre explain the progress in the field and why zk-SNARKs are so exciting. Finally, we wrap up the episode with some information on Coda’s Genesis testnet program.
