Our Quest for a Decentralized Cloud

On this Epicenter episode, Tom and Dominic shared our quest for building a massively scalable decentralized cloud - including the underlying crypto:3 protocol techniques such as Threshold Relay Chain which is at core of DFINITY, why governance matter to mass adoption of blockchain, and how “Blockchain Nervous System” could multiply speed of protocol iteration without fragmenting the community. Finally, they discussed why it’s crucial for private and public blockchains to be able to work together.
