Partisia AMA Recap
Cryptodiffer TeamHello, everyone!😁
We are glad to meet here:
Kurt Nielsen (Partisia Blockchain Cofounder & CEO) @Kurt_nielsen
Partisia Admin (Core team) @partisiaadmin
Bryan Partisia (Core team) @bryanpartisia
Bryan PartisiaHello CryptoDiffer community!
Kurt NielsenHello everyone 😊
Cryptodiffer TeamWelcome, thank you for taking your time today!
Cryptodiffer TeamQ1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
Kurt NielsenSure, my names is Kurt Nielsen and I'm co-founder of Partisia, Sepior, and now Partisia Blockchain
I'm an economist with a passion for decentralized systems - and had the pleasure to work with Ivan Damgård, Jesper Buus Nielsen etc for the past 15 years ...
thank you for the introduction!
Q2: Can you introduce Partisia Blockchain to us?
thank you for introduction!
Kurt NielsenSure - it's basically a perfect infrastructure for collaborative solutions of all kinds
Automatic execution of public and private coordination
A lot of thing can be said about Partisia Blockchain - some of it is available in the white paper others will come later as the project evolves ...
Partisia AdminJesper PhD Cryptographer
Kurt NielsenThe project is becoming popular and I have a call waiting ...
Partisia Adminworking together since 2008 on Multiparty Computation cryptography
Kurt NielsenGreat pleasure - back again soon
Partisia AdminPartisia Blockchain is now merging MPC with blockchain, in order to create the most secure and scalable interchain layer 1+2 solution
Bryan PartisiaJust to add. Ivan is the co-inventor of the Merkle-Damgard Hash Function which gave us the SHA cryptography today that powers blockchains like Bitcoin
Cryptodiffer TeamGreat, thank you for the answer!
We have the last question from our team before we move on to community questions:
Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans?
Bryan PartisiaOur test net is up and running for a while now. Main net is scheduled to go live in June to coincide with TGE
Some interesting stats so far that you can also find on our website. Also we have also raised 3.5MM to date!
Bryan PartisiaThe interest we receive is overwhelming!
Please head over to our telegram channel if you are interested in the overall progress and fundraising progress as well. The link is https://t.me/partisiachat
We will announce major and exciting partnerships closer to the main net launch. Everything is aligned perfectly for June!
Cryptodiffer TeamThank you for such detailed and interesting answers!
It is time to move to the community questions part.
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhy is Partisia better for developers to build DeFi products in comparison with other platforms?
Bryan PartisiaGreat question. DeFi is certainly an exciting innovation on top of blockchain technology. However, current DeFi is hindered by several flaws like low TPS, centralization or no interoperability. Partisia will be the center of the new DeFi Economy by enabling cross-chain value exchange and acting as L2 of all current L1s, backed by ZK computation and staking. Besides scalability, transparency and privacy, PBC staking creates an incentive layer amongst ZK node operators to avoid bad behavior.
Cryptodiffer CommunityHow is MPC token used? What benefits and value will it bring to the users who own it?
Bryan PartisiaThe most important trait of MPC token is staking. Node operators will need to buy MPC tokens in order to stake and stakes function as an insurance against fraudulent behaviors. Different jobs require different stakes e.g. baker, ZK computation and oracle. You can view MPC token as a store of value
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhat are main key points to making Partisia strong about security , Protection and speed?
Bryan PartisiaAnother great question! Security and privacy is one of Partisia's strongest suits. This is achieved via ZK computations or Secure Multiparty Computation (MPC). The team behind Partisia Blockchain is one of the most experienced teams in ZK computations, from the initial mathematical proofs in 1988 to the first real-life large scale and commercial use in 2008, which marks the starting point for the past 10 years’ collective effort to truly commercialise ZK computation. Speed is another strength of PBC, which is achieved via sharding. You probably hear about this. Sharding basically frees blockchain from any upper limit on TPS and congestion. Our first version of the main net will include sharding!
Cryptodiffer CommunityTo be able to run a node on Partisia Blockchain, what are the necessary conditions? Does the current Partisia model consume more resources than the traditional use?
Bryan PartisiaYou will need to obtain enough MPC tokens to run a node. There are different types of node that require different amount of PBC tokens (baker, zk or oracle nodes).
Bitcoin energy consumption is rising rapidly as the value of BTC increases. This will soon become unsustainable. Staking solves this problem
Cryptodiffer CommunityFeature is the most vital thing in building project growth, a product will not develop without good feature and promotion, whatever it is good. Can you provide a list of killer features that scare your competitors over your project?
Bryan Partisia"Scare" seems like a strong word haha but we do have the following advantages over current Layer 1 competitors:
1. Scalability and speed
2. Privacy preserving features
Cryptodiffer CommunityWhat is the advantage of Partisia Blockchain if compared to other blockchain? and does this network support cross-chain and lower fees?
Bryan PartisiaYes and yes. Partisia blockchain is agnostic and able to facilitate both privacy and transactions across chains at a fraction of the cost, not to mention the scalability via sharding
Cryptodiffer Community1. I tried to run a node from your website and was redirected to send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. But after sending the mail, I got no reply. Is there any other way to run a node on your platform?
2. The core goal of Partisia Blockchain in 2021 is the launch of the Partisia Blockchain Mainnet. What should users expect from the Mainnet?
Bryan Partisia1. If you'd like to participate in running node, please reach out directly to @PartisiaAdmin via telegram and he will assist you
2. Yes the goal for now is main net launch in June. Users can expect to see cross chain demonstrators and Bring Your Own Coin with ETH, EOS chains. In fact, we will launch a demo this week on PBC that can move assets back and forth between ETH and EOS mainnet
Cryptodiffer CommunityPartnerships are crucial for Adoption, so can you tell us what partners you have currently and future partnerships
Bryan PartisiaWe are currently in deep talks with major corporations that would like to use our pioneering technology to help innovating their core businesses. We hope that we can share it with the community in the upcoming weeks leading to the TGE event once things are formalized. It's a very exciting time for all of seeing the massive interest pouring in
Anything you'd like to add @PartisiaAdmin @Kurt_nielsen ?
I think they are still on the call 😜.
