Talk Title & Summary

King of the Hill: Mineable Governance

  • What if there was a pool-resistant mining algorithm?
  • What if we use it to mine authority instead of blocks?
  • What if that results in a truly decentralized decision making process?
Let’s talk about how we can bring decentralization to the next level by using a pool-resistant mining algorithm to solve things like open-source project governance.
