All Things Truflation With Stefan Rust
In this episode, ChainLinkGod and Stefan Rust discuss how Truflation is producing unbiased inflation rate datasets, how this information is brought on-chain via Chainlink, and the many use cases that are enabled. The conversation is finished off with a deeper discussion about the current and future evolution of the Web3 ecosystem. Follow Truflation: Follow Stefan Rust: Follow ChainLinkGod:

The Current State of the Cryptocurrency Ecosystem and Its Future
Has the cryptocurrency ecosystem achieved the goal of creating a more fair, transparent, and trust-minimized society or is it just a digital casino that exists to print new money in the form of tokens? In this podcast, The_Crypto_Oracle and I discuss the current state of the cryptocurrency ecosystem in its current state, how we see the ecosystem evolving into the future, and our thoughts on the role that Chainlink plays.

How Oracles Go Beyond Data Delivery: Off-Chain Computation
In this podcast episode, ChainLinkGod and Crypto___Oracle explore the concept of trust-minimized off-chain computation in decentralized oracle networks and how it extends the capabilities of blockchains. Additionally, we dive into the spectrum of computation ranging from traditional centralized servers to blockchain computation, and how oracle computation provides an optimized middle-ground solution for introducing privacy, scalability, fairness, automation, and more to smart contract applications.

Chainlink Price Feeds: An Overview With ChainLinkGod
In this series, I dive into specific Chainlink oracle services and break down in simple terms the problems they aim to solve, their underlying design, and ultimately the use cases that are enabled as a result. With this  episode, I explore Chainlink Price Feeds, the most widely adopted price oracle solution across the blockchain ecosystem, securing over 80B+ USD in value across hundreds of smart contract applications.

Exploring Miner Extractable Value (MEV) with Pmcgoohan
In this episode, The_Crypto_Oracle and I talk with Pmcgoohan, the analyst who first discovered the Miner Extractable Value (MEV) problem in Ethereum pre-genesis in 2014. We define what MEV is, the various types of activity that do and don't fall under MEV, why MEV Auctions do not solve MEV, as well as how front-running, back-running, and sachwich attacks on blockchain transactions results in financial harm of end-users. We also cover potential solutions such as Pmcgoohan's proposed content-layer transaction chunking and Chainlink's Fair Sequencing Services (FSS), including their complementary nature.

Cryptoeconomic Security in the Chainlink Network
In this podcast episode, ChainLinkGod and The_Crypto_Oracle explore how the widely used Chainlink oracle network generates cryptoeconomic security through direct rewards and penalties including implicit incentives with financial exposure to a native token, explicit super-linear staking with slashing, on-chain reputation with an immutable performance history, and much more. We cover both how the Chainlink network is secured today and how it will be secured under the Chainlink 2.0 model as proposed in the recent Chainlink v2 whitepaper.  Follow ChainLinkGod: Follow The_Crypto_Oracle: Follow SmartContent:

Cryptoeconomic Security in the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks
In this podcast, The_Crypto_Oracle and I explore the concept of cryptoeconomic security in decentralized computation networks, how it is applied to the Bitcoin Proof of Work (PoW) and Ethereum 2.0 Proof of Stake (PoS) networks, and the various technical nuances that make these networks operate at a global scale.  Follow ChainLinkGod: Follow The_Crypto_Oracle: Follow SmartContent:

Chainlink Oracle Services: An Overview
In this podcast, The_Crypto_Oracle and I explore the wide range of oracle services provided by Chainlink, the industry-leading decentralized oracle network. This includes Price Feeds (real-time financial market data), Proof of Reserves (on-chain audits of tokens backed by off-chain collateral), Any API (bringing all the world's data-chain), Verifiable Randomness (tamper-resistant on-chain RNG for NFTs and gaming apps), Keepers (transaction automation bots) and a Blockchain Abstraction Layer for enterprises (single integration gateway to becoming blockchain-enabled). We explore the importance of each service, how exactly they work, and the nuances regarding why the Chainlink Network is the leading provider in each individual category of use cases.

Diving Into the World of Blockchains, Chainlink, and Hybrid Smart Contracts
In this podcast, The_Crypto_Oracle and I explore a wide range of topics including defining trust in society, the purpose of contractual agreements, how blockchains provide a decentralized trust network, the need for decentralized oracle networks, why oracles need to be separate from blockchains, the core value proposition of the Chainlink, how the Chainlink oracles are secured, the end state of Hybrid Smart Contracts, and much more.

Exploring the Chainlink 2.0 Whitepaper With ChainLinkGod
In this podcast, I explore the core innovations presented in the Chainlink 2.0 Whitepaper including the underlying components that make up Decentralized Oracle Networks (DONs), Fair Sequencing Services (FSS) to solve the Miner Extractable Value (MEV) problem, the Transaction Execution Framework (TEF) for syncing with a main chain using layer-2 mechanisms, trust-minimization to achieve maximum security and reliability, implicit staking in the form of the Implicit Incentive Framework (IIF), explicit staking with a quadratic scaling of cryptoeconomic security, and more. I also provide my insight and perspective on how the next generation of decentralized applications will take the form of Hybrid Smart Contracts which combine on-chain and off-chain infrastructure.  Announcement blogpost: Chainlink 2.0 Whitepaper: Smart Contract Research Forum (SCRF) Summary:  Twitter:
