In “Picking the Right Blockchain for the Job,” Andreas asks which blockchain is the best blockchain, and then shows why that question falls short. He argues that we should choose tools that are best designed for the applications we want to build. We must also understand that what we create may be used by the market in unanticipated ways, and that function can change over time.
This talk took place on May 31st 2019, at the DigitalK conference in Sofia, Bulgaria.
This series is called ‘Unscrypted’ for a reason: all of Andreas’ talks are performed without slides or notes. You can find any necessary corrections and clarifications in the podcast description.
