029: Move Aside Blockchain – Introducing Hashgraph with Leemon Baird

Dr. Leemon Baird is the inventor of Hashgraph and the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Swirlds Inc. He has a PhD in Computer Science and is also a successful entrepreneur and former professor.

Hashgraph is a new data structure and consensus algorithm.

**PLEASE NOTE: This interview was conducted prior to the Hedera Public Ledger announcement.**

In this episode, Leemon and I discuss:

  • What a Hashgraph is. How does it compare to a Blockchain?
  • Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) – Leemon does a brilliant job of explaining this
  • Exciting use cases for Hashgraph. Hint: they already have a few big ones in the pipeline
