From Thailand on July 29th: This was my first appearance on Let’s Talk Bitcoin and unfortunately I did not enjoy it. I’m not sure if I should have been a guest due to the topic’s nature but here is the TLDR from my perspective:
The topic was how to fix TheDAO hack and what is the future of this movement. The discussion had Prof Emin Gun Sire who I honestly do not view as a positive influence in the movement. The discussion was a bit more technical than my expertise to contribute but I have problems with the assumptions to the problems. I think that people should be questioning the need for Ethereum, Decentralized Smart Contracts, Turing Complete Smart Contracts & the combination of the two (aka Turing Complete Decentralized Smart Contracts like TheDAO was). Only Stephanie Murphy brought up these concerns and she was ignored. After that the topic should be to figure out who should be held liable for the disaster that is TheDAO (especially programatically). These are way more important topics than working on a HF which some of us knew would end in a bigger disaster than the original DAO hack. My part starts at around 49 minutes in and my connection was lost with about 30 min left.
