At Blockchain Zoo, we aim to deliver a multimedia offering to help expand your knowledge of blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and the many ways decentralized technologies will change the world. We believe this is possible thanks to blockchain’s ability to offer faster, fairer, more transparent and democractic ways of doing things. One such way for us to deliver this information to you is via our in-house videos. 

Every month we publish an episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype (BBH). These videos address with honesty and objectivity the concerns of everyday people, as well as answer the questions of those who’ve been part of this industry for many years. 

Among others, we published a video about the ‘Real-World Challenges of Blockchain Projects’, with a conversation around the real-world challenges blockchain projects are facing, how to evaluate a blockchain project, chain commerce, and more. Another BBH video explored ‘The Internet of Things and Blockchain’, with a great discussion around internet decentralization, and the space race between tech giants. 

We also love to interview industry leaders, who offer their point of view on a variety of subjects. For example, our ‘Strategic Evaluation of Blockchain Projects’ interview with Doryan Ahn, co-founder of CREXPIA and CEO of Doryan Solutions‘, or The Blockchain Road to Mass Adoption’ interview with Justin Seidl, the CEO of Vertbase.

Because blockchain is in its early years, there’s a lot of debate on the technology, and the best way to make it work. For instance, in 2019 we filmed a debate called ‘Is Proof of Work the Ultimate Solution?’, where industry leaders discussed with the Blockchain Zoo team attack vectors in PoW algorithms, as well as the reasons why, after all these years, it might not be the ultimate answer for all blockchain solutions. 

Although PoW is used by many of the top cryptocurrencies, as several of our videos show, it has various limitations, like scaling and giving power to the most resourceful.
