Let us introduce you our co-founder and CTO, Barton Johnston, who sees decentralized technologies as an incarnation of democracy. In this video, he shares his vision on how decentralized technologies can change people's lives for the better.
Barton has extensive programming and engineering experience in several languages and across a range of industries. Now, his focus is on Blockchain technology - specifically the underlying infrastructure. Barton works on the structures of various types of decentralized consensus protocols, hashing and asymmetric encryption algorithms, and analysis and applications of new blockchain and crypto technologies such as Maid Safe, IOTA, and NXT.
nodes which are able to create more blocks, which may or may not be fair depending on the algorithm. ZooBC takes a more democratic approach, rewarding people by how well they have participated in the network, regardless of how many blocks they make. Learn more here: http://ow.ly/LKwx50zK1rg
Our co-founder, Stefano Griggio, shares with us how blockchain became one of his biggest passions in life. Stefano is a developer and analyst with more than two decades of experience in the IT industry. As a child he was interested in computer graphics, leading eventually to a career as a Visual C/ C++ Programmer via Microsoft. In the Internet boom of the early 90s, Stefano added Java, PHP, and HTML programming skills to his portfolio and has gone on to work on the creation of more than 200 e-commerce and B2B sites. He also designs, builds, and develops mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows.
Every four years, Bitcoin gives out 50% less reward for each block. To avoid the price instability caused by this, ZooBC has re-designed how blocks and rewards work from the ground up. In this video, our CTO and Co-founder, Barton Johnston, explains to you the following: - Bitcoin halving and why it matters - How ZooBC reward mechanism limits the supply of tokens - The main differences between the ZooBC and Bitcoin reward mechanisms
With the work of 20+ dedicated developers across the core node, blockchain explorer, and wallet applications, the ZooBC project is making incremental steps towards fulfilling the vision and feature set described in its White Paper. In this video, our developers Ali, Eko, and Gung De update you on the current status of ZooBC Blockchain and tell you what feedback they would like to get from you.
ZooBC is a global, open-source blockchain platform and community providing developers with tools for building decentralized applications. Created by Blockchain Zoo, the platform brings decentralization to new generations by advancing the blockchain technology.
In this episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype, we interview Arjuna Sky Kok, Founder and CEO of PT. Langit Biru Arjuna. We discussed topics such as:
- Decentralized applications and how different they are from centralized applications - How the decentralized applications work - Dapp rules and how they are hosted - What it takes to become a blockchain developer

Blockchain Beyond Hype is a series of interviews with blockchain experts and technology professionals from all across the globe about blockchain projects, challenges, innovations, and the future of blockchain within the blockchain jungle!
BBH Guest - Arjuna Sky Kok is a founder and CEO of PT. Langit Biru Arjuna. He has more than 10 years of experience as a software engineer, developing web applications using Symfony, Laravel, Ruby on Rails, and Django. He also has built mobile applications on top of Android and iOS platforms. Arjuna teaches iOS and Android programming for students and researches programming on Bitcoin and Ethereum platforms. He wrote a book about blockchain programming 'Hands-On Blockchain for Python Developers.'
Every blockchain has transaction fees, but why? Do they have systems that help keep the fee at a reasonable level? Many do not, but ZooBC takes a unique approach to this problem. In this video, we learn about different stages of the ZooBC fee scaling model, such as: - Committing to fee votes - Revealing fee votes - Adjusting a network fee scale
Like Proof of Authority, Proof of Participation takes advantage of a federated consensus algorithm. However, unlike Proof of Authority, the process of joining the federation is fully decentralized, permissionless, and fair. Learn more here: http://ow.ly/HBIZ50yTQCC
Proof of Participation takes the best part of proof of stake (removing the need for vast computing resources by proof of work) and takes a step further by reducing dependence on the token's value for security as explained in this infographic. Learn more at: http://ow.ly/T2Kd50yNxyE
ZooBC's Proof of Participation consensus was designed to overcome problems in other consensus algorithms like Proof of Work. Check out some of their differences in this infographic. Learn more at: http://ow.ly/y82u50yHqlA
