Showtime: Crypto Art and NFTs with Alex Masmejean

4/20/2021
Non-fungible tokens are proofs of authenticity that are stored on a blockchain. Unlike fungible tokens, such as cryptocurrencies which are interchangeable, non-fungible tokens aren’t inherently equivalent to any other token. Because they are unique, they can be used to represent any unique asset. Their presence on a blockchain enables an NFT owner to trade the The post Showtime: Crypto Art and NFTs with Alex Masmejean appeared first on Software Engineering Daily.

Synthetix: Derivatives Trading in DeFi with Justin Moses

4/19/2021
Volatility is the degree of fluctuation of something’s price. Highly volatile assets may see rapid and large price changes, while less volatile assets will maintain a steady price. This concept is important in decentralized finance because cryptocurrencies tend to be volatile assets.

Compound: Cryptocurrency Interest Rates with Jared Flatow

4/14/2021
Decentralized applications, termed “dApps,” are applications that feel like normal apps but are actually deployed (mostly) on the Ethereum blockchain. This means dApps can’t be taken down, can’t be censored or blocked, typically use Ethereum accounts as identity, and would only experience downtime if Ethereum itself went down. There are a lot of things you The post Compound: Cryptocurrency Interest Rates with Jared Flatow appeared first on Software Engineering Daily.

WorkOS: Making Enterprise-Ready Apps with Michael Grinich

4/5/2021
The typical procedure many companies follow to reach production-level code is design the program, code and test it in different environments, and put it in a pipeline to deploy to production. Developers can make it pretty far into building their core features before inevitably breaking to include enterprise features and security standards like Single Sign The post WorkOS: Making Enterprise-Ready Apps with Michael Grinich appeared first on Software Engineering Daily.
