How do you see the current and future status of UX design in the Tezos community and ecosystem? Do you see much interest and activity around design in the community? Thanks.
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.
Hey Arthur, Thanks for doing the AMA. I love Tezos. Here's my question:
What role do you think AI will play in Blockchain in the near future? Have you seen any project using this combination?
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.
It's known that Kathleen is working to integrate Tezos into the gaming economy, but I'm interested as to what your focus will be for the upcoming years? Are you planning on making your own official proposals along side the community's?
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?
If the Bitcoin inflation bug would have happened, what would the most likely scenarios that would have taken place? A fork and the teams fix the inflation bug? Or any other scenarios?
How can we make Tezos the Schelling point?
When do you think banks will stop blocking crypto-related transactions?
You said at your recent (very good) Web3 speech that you are sceptical about interoperability. Can you explain why?
If Bitcoin were to fail, what do you think would be the most likely scenario as to why. And by fail, I mean didn't become the primary store of value/money.
Do you still think that baking useful applications into the core protocol itself is the way to go?
What project are you personally most excited about on Tezos (existing or not)?
What do you think is the most underappreciated subtlety of Tezos governance?
If you have read the recent paper Zexe: Enabling Decentralized Private Computation, do you believe this brand new primitive can or will be implemented anytime in tezos?
How does the Voting Process at Tezos work in detail. User side and Developer side.
Is there any hardware tezos related projects the community shall pay attention to or think about?
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 ?
How big is Tezos' developers network today? Why do you think developers will be attracted towards adopting Tezos in the future.
Hey Arthur, thanks for the AMA!
When do you think we'll be able to use cryptocurrencies the same way we use FIAT today?
Hi Arthur, do you see any future for consortium, permissioned blockchains or do you think that public, permissionless blockchains are the only ones that will succeed?
What do you think is better for tezoa between a token open standard model versus a model where xtz is being used as the only currencywithin the applications?
Coda protocol is open sourcing their code today. Can Tezos copy this now and become a succinct blockchain with smart contracts?
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!
Why should a person who did not participate in the ICO care about Tezos?
Thanks for the AMA! Can you explain to someone who is new to Tezos what "self-amending" means?
Sorry if it sounds lame. Let's say if there is a proposal and community has voted their choice for a protocol upgrade.now my question is does tezos dev team needs to code the change or the protocol some how magically self upgrades?
If Tezos would implement privacy in the same way as Zcash does. What would be the differentiator/advantage for Zcash compared to Tezos?
What is the No. of End-Users (Minimum and Maximum as Lower & Upper Limits) required for any Blockchain to Implement for any given Use-Case(s)? Please let us Know to Decide whether to use BlockChain or Not to build a Feature. THX. 🙏👍
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?
If the lawsuit in the US would turn out to be negative for you, your wife or DLS (I hope not), how would that determine the potential success of Tezos? Can Tezos be stopped? Either by blocking funds, blocking ICO coin holders, directly impacting the blockchain or any other way?
First of lots of love from India and thanks for the AMA
You have invested in starkware. Do you have any plans to collaborate with them to implement their tech on tezos protocol?
What ideas do you have for lowing the barriers of entry into blockchain/Tezos? Wallet addresses? Use cases? Marketing?
In what ways do you think tezos will be able to get a larger market adoption compared to its competitors?
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.
I understand that you are not a pro dapp guy. As per tezos philosophy there is no need for a token for every application. In a scenario there are apps built on protocol and use tezos for transactions what do you think is ideal tps in that case?
In prior interviews with Kathleen, you paraphrase the Paul Graham quote, saying Tezos isn't competing with other blockchains, it's "competing against no one giving a shit".
Why would anyone give a shit about Tezos? (apart from the 20,000+ activated contributors)
Tezos will get traction and adoption only if dApps aimed at the general market can attract the crowds. What is Tezos doing to attract and support large scale dApp projects?
