Jake, I would like to know what you think of blockchain and cryptocurrencies to make the world a better place. I am the founder of OpenDomain - we have donated domains worth millions to open source and non-profits for over 20 years. I saw a problem where donations were not getting to the people in need, so I created CharityCoin. We use the blockchain for verifiable giving - we won the Techstars blockchain challenge last year.
How would you setup a charity coin? Some percentage of mining goes to charity? Could you suggest how to enforce that without legal contracts or a semi-private blockchain?
Did you know that the United Nations voted that everyone should have access to the internet? I would love a new law - where everyone has the right to universal cryptocurrency. That way people are protected from illegal seizures or fiat currency devaluations. How would you suggest we protect against the problems with Tether and Petro?
Thank you VERY much for your help with this - We would like to create "a better bitcoin" and would love any suggestions
Hi Jake ,As a student I have learned to make dapps (basic) like multiple Poll generator (ethereum) etc but I want to learn more ,so that I can build some dapps that have good security , best practices (solidity) and some complex logic under the hood. What are some good resources to boost my knowledge to expert level? Apart from building dapps on ethereum , what are some of the other ways of building dapps and I should focus on them also?
Thanks for the AMA!
Hello Jake, thanks for this session!
I'm a software developer with an interest for blockchain. Previously I've worked with machine learning pipelines, web apps and some devops on the side, 2 years experience total. I'd like to get into more serious software engineering and I see blockchain as a gateway into such topics as distributed systems, cryptography and protocol design.
Is there any community, company ( or any course of action really ) that you could recommend to me? Do you consider pursuing a masters degree a viable option? Are there any interesting open-source projects that could use someone less experienced?
