Episode 44 - Block Gas Limit, Block Period, and Blockchain ScalabilityListen now (4 min) | When we talk about blockchain scalability — which has been the theme for some of the current episodes — we must understand how the…
Episode 43 - The Ethereum MergeListen now (4 min) | Since its beginning, the Ethereum network has been using the Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism. As we know, PoW consumes a lot of…
Episode 42 - Blockchain Performance vs. ScalabilityListen now (4 min) | When it comes to blockchains, we use the terms performance, scalability, transactions per second (TPS) many times interchangeably…
Episode 41 - Blockchain ShardingListen now (5 min) | In the last episode I spoke about blockchain scalability and how sharding is one of the ways to achieve that. In this episode…
Episode 40 - Blockchain ScalabilityListen now | Some of you must have seen on the internet that how Bitcoin and Ethereum and much slower than Visa and other centralized financial systems…
Episode 39 - Blockchain TrilemmaListen now (5 min) | Blockchains are decentralized networks where all the data is stored and verified by all nodes. To make blockchains usable for real…
Episode 38 - Byzantine Fault ToleranceListen now | Blockchains are basically peer to peer networks of nodes. The chain progresses when majority of the nodes or peers agree on the state of…
Episode 37 - Lifecycle of a Blockchain TransactionListen now (4 min) | The user or DApp composes a transaction with information like input parameters, cryptographic signature, and some metadata about…
Episode 36 - Anatomy of a Blockchain NodeListen now (5 min) | Blockchains are peer to peer network of nodes. These nodes connect with each other and come to consensus on the state of the…
Episode 35 - OraclesListen now (5 min) | Blockchains form consensus when all the nodes agree on the data they process. This depends on the condition that the computation at…
Episode 34 - On-Chain vs. Off-Chain DataListen now (5 min) | Blockchains are decentralized systems and are relatively slower than the centralized distributed systems. This is because…
Episode 33 - Distributed vs. Decentralized SystemsListen now (4 min) | Conventional distributed systems divide the load/work across many nodes (servers). For example, in an online banking system, when…
