Salut Arthur, j'ai trois questions pour toi :
-How Tezos is going to manage nodes in the futur, so as to keep the protocol as much decentralized as possible ?
-Did Tezos plan to create a structure like Consensys did for Ethereum, to promote the protocol and helps its integration in old companies (banks, insurers...) ?
-How many dapps are currently being developed ? Merci :)
On January there will be first voting on tezos for protocol upgrades. Is specs defined yet ? On which proposal we will vote ? At least do know them a bit would be nice. And there wasnt any testing for voting and still there is no documentation do you this is a vulnerability for January voting. Thanks. Keep up the good work. I believe tezos will be the biggest smart contract platform in this ecosystem in a couple years.
We have seen many blockchain influencers talking about Blockchain and Fintech, Blockchain and Health, etc. But no one talks about the type of companies that are not fit for blockchain.
Do you think every Internet company can be ported into blockchain? Which domains are you sure blockchain is not made for.
As far as I know, the governance process in its current shape only allows one protocol amendment to be passed by cycle. This seem like an unnecessary bottleneck: you should be able to integrate any non-overlapping set of upgrades! Or at least a reasonable number of these!
Is there a reason this is not the case that I am not seeing?
4 Weeks ago you said this: "'Im starting to get a better mental model of Tezos' proof of stake algorithm by the way, and am getting a new found appreciation for it. I'd like to start benchmarking it at 100x its current throughout, and I tend to think it would handle it gracefully. At this point, the limiting factor is more likely to be the current inefficiency of database reads and writes than in the logic of the distributed consensus itself." Did you do the benchmark ?
Hi Arthur. There is a group of at least 80 of us in a telegram channel who trust and believe in Tezos vision. Unfortunately majority of us have lost the password necessary to unlock the ICO funds. Is there any plans for all of us to work together for a satisfactory solution? Thank you and best of luck!
Hi Arthur - Thanks for this AMA. During your 5 reasons why Tezos rocks! talk, you mention that apart from currency, a decentralized ledger like Tezos is good for two things: Internet scale coordination (decentralized polities, cultural movements and DAOs) and pre-commitment to ecosystem openess.
Could you explain further what you mean by the former? What examples of internet scale coordination are being built on Tezos or would you like to see?
Do you know if a portal is in the works for discussion or voting? Where will we vote? Will it be a signed transaction to specific addresses? Who sets the addresses? Last question; what do you think about defining the test time of a protocol improvement via the proposal? Some improvements do not need a long-term test (changing constants i.E.), others maybe need longer-term tests (Avalanche/Igloo/ZKP). A fixed test time, will slow down evolution imho.
