Beyond Blocks Podcast #001 – Bina Cho (FLETA)


Podcast #001 — Bina Cho (FLETA)

Our guest for the very first episode of the Beyond Blocks Podcast was Bina Cho.

Bina joined FLETA as the Head of Marketing Strategy this year, after organizing events for over 10 years. FLETA is a unique blockchain protocol looking to become the fastest and the most secure protocol in the space. FLETA is our Principal Sponsor for Summit Bangkok.

FLETA

The FLETA project seeks to be the core platform in the transforming blockchain market, akin to the Android or iOS in the mobile environment. To allow anyone to partake in the user-centric blockchain platform market, they wish to overcome the limitations of existing protocols and create a perfect decentralized economy through the independence and scalability of DApps.

Summary

Aside from Bina’s personal background and the FLETA platform, we discussed multiple topics that will also be brought up at Beyond Blocks Summit Bangkok. One of those is scalability; how are you going to talk about mainstream adoption when you can’t scale? Bina explained how FLETA deals with solving the scalability problem and mentioned that they’re now able to process 1500 transactions per second, and that they’re working towards 20k tps. They have their own consensus algorithm, called ‘Proof-of-Formulation’.

In the second half of the podcast, you’ll get to hear her point-of-views on key industry matters; the conversation went from decentralization to privacy, and from geographical aspects to the current market and space in general.
