I am Arthur Breitman. Ask me anything.

Arthur Breitman is one of the co-founders of Tezos, a blockchain platform which provides smart contracts, has built-in governance system, and facilitates formal verification. Unlike the majority of blockchain platforms, it uses the delegated proof of stake consensus.

Prior to Tezos, Arthur worked at X (previously known as Google X), the self-driving car division. He comes with great knowledge of technology, blockchain, and programming. Don't miss out the opportunity and ask the questions.

Ask Arthur Breitman about:

  • Tezos and blockchain governance
  • Developing Dapps in 2018
  • Proof of Stake and other consensus mechanisms
  • The future of Bitcoin
  • The current state of Blockchain
  • Blockchain development

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?

I'm excited to see what's in store, thank you.

Is there any hardware tezos related projects the community shall pay attention to or think about?

Not to my knowledge, but Tezos benefits from the cool hardware being built by companies such as Ledger or Trezor.

How big is Tezos' developers network today? Why do you think developers will be attracted towards adopting Tezos in the future.

I don't know how big it is, it's certainly smaller than Ethereum's at this point. I think Tezos' appeal will be in offering tooling that lets developers write smart contracts with confidence but also in the perennity of the platform. Tezos is designed to be here to stay.

How does the Voting Process at Tezos work in detail. User side and Developer side.

There's a coming blog post that goes into it in details but, briefly speaking, there are few 8-cycle long (about 3 weeks) periods. First, a proposal period where protocols can be proposed and an approval voting procedure ranks them. Then, a voting period where the top rated proposal can be adopted. Then a testing period where the protocol is run as a testnet. Finally, there's a confirmation vote to promote the testnet to the mainnet.

Do you still think that baking useful applications into the core protocol itself is the way to go?
