09-Emin Gün Sirer

Where is Emin Gün Sirer sacred?

Emin Gün Sirer is a Turkish American computer scientist and associate professor of computer science at Cornell University. He is known for his contributions to P2P systems, operating systems and computer networks, and is a legend in the history of digital currency.

In 2003, he invented Karma, the first cryptocurrency based on work proof (POW) in history, six years earlier than Nakamoto.

The original architecture of the Internet was P2P, and different computers could communicate directly with each other. Later, the client/server centralization model dominated the Internet, and today it has evolved into a giant landscape.

After 2000, the Internet revolution to revive P2P began, such as Napster and BitTorrent (BT). But the fatal problem of P2P systems lies in the "tragedy of the commons." In the words of Emin Gün Sirer, most people will only ask for it and will not give it.

So he designed the Karma system. The more computing power or storage the user contributes, the more Karma coins are obtained, and the use of public resources consumes Karma coins. Is it really "digital currency" right? Unfortunately, this experiment ended in vain.

After the rise of digital currency, Emin Gün Sirer became a star because of his technical skills and rhetoric. For example, he predicted the DAO hacking attack five days in advance. He poured cold water on the fanatics. "Don't be too fanatical about the blockchain. This technology is still very early." He reminded the idealist that "the existing cryptocurrency is not really decentralized." He preached PoS very early, "PoS It is a better solution to solve the problem of cryptocurrency centralization."

In addition to research, he is also the co-founder of bloXroute, a Layer 0 underlying protocol that attempts to increase blockchain processing speed and reduce costs through the Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN). He is also the founder and CEO of AVA Labs, releasing the new blockchain consensus protocol Avalanche, which is said to achieve a final acknowledgment of 1-2 seconds and an on-chain throughput of approximately 10,000 for 2000 nodes worldwide.

As a well-known technical man and poison tongue, he dares to slap any practitioner who is falsified, in Wuzhen, will he swear? Or what is the point of release? I am looking forward to it.
