ARK Crypto Podcast Episode #031 – ARK Ecosystem Participation Checklist Again

The thirty-first episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! It’s been over six months of wonderful episodes, but it’s time to take a beat. If all you have been doing is listening, we appreciate it, but it’s time to take more action! This is an interactive episode- be sure to have your desktop or laptop computer out and browser ready.

This episode is a checklist you can refer to for ways to participate in the ARK Ecosystem as someone who has just recently discovered our ambitious endeavor. The checklist has nine items, and whether you’re an ARK dabbler, an ARK fan, or a diehard ‘deluded arkie,’ there is probably something you aren’t doing yet on this list.

ARK Crypto Podcast Episode #030 – Calidelegate Interview & Crypto Blockchain Plug Lunch Party Recording

Hosted by Justin Renken. Produced by ARK | NA

The thirtieth episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! This week, we sit down for an exclusive interview with Calidelegate during the Crypto Blockchain Plug Launch Party in Inglewood, CA. Calidelegate even flipped the script on me and asked me some questions! Delegates appearing on The ARK Crypto Podcast do not constitute an endorsement by ARK.io or its agents to vote for a specific delegate. Always consider all the options when choosing a delegate to vote for by visiting arkdelegates.io, a community website managed by Delegate Deadlock. Voting rewards are voluntary, they are not part of the ARK protocol, and ARK.io does not run the ARK network.

You’ll also hear the special talk I gave to everyone at the party. Find the video of my talk at youtube.ark.io. You can learn more about The Crypto Blockchain Plug, attend more free events, and even become a member at blockchainpluginglewood.com

029 – AIP – 60 & The Unvotening Part 2 – Breakdown

Hosted by Justin Renken. Produced by ARK | NA

The twenty-ninth episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! This week, we continue our deep-dive into AIP-60. This ARK Improvement Proposal sheds light on permanent voting potentially posing an issue for network stability and delegates who may have an unfair advantage from voters who have lost their keys, for example. A fierce discussion ensued on both sides of the issue. In this episode, I assemble the main points both for and against a revoting mechanism, and casually discuss the implications of these points. If you were scratching your head after last week’s episode, this week will bring even the average user some additional clarity. Have your own opinion? Go to the ARK Github at github.ark.io and make your voice heard, even if you don’t write code. Simply scroll to the AIP section and enter it, then click issues and find AIP-60, with over 100 comments so far.

Episode 028 – ARK Improvement Proposal (AIP) 60 & The Unvotening

The twenty-eighth episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! This week, we address an ongoing discussion happening on The ARK Github, AIP-60. This ARK Improvement Proposal sheds light on permanent voting potentially posing an issue for network stability and delegates who may have an unfair advantage from voters who have lost their keys, for example. A fierce discussion ensued on both sides of the issue, and I also threw my hat into the ring with a unique idea. Follow along on github.ark.io in the issues section as I read the discussion between ARK community members, team members, and delegates. Have your own opinion? Go to the ARK Github and make your voice heard, even if you don’t write code.

Episode #023 – Crypto Brew Show Syndication With Justin Renken Of Ark.io

The twenty-third episode of the ARK Crypto Podcast is here! This week we syndicate an episode of the Crypto Brew Show, where a group a guys crack open a cold one and talk shop on everything crypto. I was a special guest for their new format Taproom Talk, and we discussed ARK concepts and how the ARK technology, community, and team are aiming towards making blockchains easy and accessible to everyone.

Be advised, the Crypto Brew Show had rolled out a different broadcasting and recording technology for the episode, and some issues with it caused some unexpected quirks with the audio quality. We didn’t let it rain on our parade, though!

Check out the Crypto Brew Show on CryptoBrew.Show and Youtube.
