Hedera Hashgraph: Proof-of-Stake Public Networks with Leemon Baird


Blockchain protocols like Bitcoin and Ethereum have changed the cyber world dramatically in the last decade. They’ve created communities of like-minded developers, generated new financial markets, and popularized “decentralization” in computer networks. However, they require large resources to operate which makes scaling difficult and transactions expensive.

Hedera is a decentralized public network that takes the previous innovations a step further. The Hedera Consensus and Token service enables developers to make tokens and create publicly verifiable and scalable timestamps for any application at an incredibly fast speed, highest grade security, and extremely low bandwidth consumption. 

In this episode, we talk to Leemon Baird, Founder and Chief Scientist at Hedera Hashgraph. We discuss proof-of-stake public networks, the hashgraph consensus, and the future of blockchains.
