Open questions from Seoul meetup


#1

Our aembassador Peterson Lee has quite a lot of open questions left from his last meetup in Seoul and I would like to post them here for everyone to see so we can answer them together :slight_smile:

Q1. Smart contract language called by Sophia has made by Aeternity team. It means it is made by short time. How to audit the language? How to guarantee it is safe?

Q2. Why is the mainnet continually delayed? It was already 3 times. (A strong dissatisfaction with breaking investor’s promise.)

Q3. Are there blockchains that use a similar concept to the State channel? If yes, what is the strength of Aeternity more than them?

Q4. I heard if it uses State channel, the TPS is no meaning. Is there any real test data of it compared with other blockchains?

Q5. Although the Ripple is private blockchain, is it faster than Ripple when using state channel?

Q6. The Governance voting is weighted by holder’s staking. It looks like all AE holder can vote, however, is it meaningful? Big investors can unite and set governance for their own benefit.

Q7. What is the list of governance which investors can vote?

Q8. Please describe the strengths of Aeternity over other blockchains.

Q9. Erlang looks like good language for blockchain. Is there any blockchain vendor that uses it?

Q1。Sophia作为智能合约语言由Aeternity团队制作。这意味着它是在短时间内完成的。如何审核该语言?如何保证安全?

Q2。为什么主网不断推迟?已经3次了。 (对违背投资者承诺的强烈不满。)

Q3。是否有区块链使用与状态通道类似的概念?如果是的话,Aeternity的力量比他们多吗?

Q4。我听说如果它使用状态通道,TPS没有意义。与其他区块链相比,它是否有任何真实的测试数据?

Q5。虽然Ripple是私有区块链,但使用状态通道时Aeternity是否比Ripple更快?

Q6。治理投票由持有人的持有加权。看起来所有AE持有人都可以投票,但是,它有意义吗?大投资者可以团结起来,为自己的利益设定治理。

Q7。投资者可以投票的治理清单是什么?

Q8。请描述Aeternity优于其他区块链的优势。

Q9。 Erlang看起来像区块链的好语言。是否有任何区块链供应商使用它?

Hey,

Thanks for the questions. Here are my replies:

Q1. The smart contract language is developed in completely different language (ML-based, functional). Which changes the security profile fundamentally, making secure execution a default state. The developers who created the language are more than very experienced. Finally, there is a testing infrastructure that is being utilize to run tests and identify possible issues.

Q2. As mentioned already, at æternity we are not interested in speculation but in secure, efficient code that can be used by a global community of developers and users. The main reason for delays is the implementation of Bitcon-NG, which has not been implemented in a PoW system before but is essential for a well-functioning, decentralized platform such as æternity.

Q3. More and more platforms consider state channel technology as an off-chain solution. However, state channels are usually implemented as a layer 2 solution, which makes it harder to use them. In æternity, state channels are part of the core protocol, making their use much more straightforward and efficient.

Q4. Anyone will be able to test the speed of smart contracts in state channels after the next release is ready. Speed of interaction between users in state channels depends only on the internet bandwidth between them.

Q5. This is a bit vague. Ripple is primarily a payments & settlement platform, æternity is a decentralized applications platform.

Q6. Large token holders have a larger stake in the system. The decisions they make will ultimately affect them more than smaller token holders.

Q7. Upon Mainnet launch, users will be able to propose a vote and vote on anything. The results from those “polls” will signal to the developers what AE users think is the best way forward for æternity.

Q8. æternity is a public blockchain platform that supports decentralized applications. It is a blockchain 3.0 project that addresses the problems of scalability, decentralization, and usability by developing a new type of efficient, cryptographically-secured protocol.

The æternity protocol integrates a unique set of cutting-edge blockchain technologies. These include ML-based smart contracts and VMs, Bitcoin-NG consensus (improved on-chain scalability), state channels (unlimited off-chain scalability), oracles (access to real-world data), naming system (UX), on-chain governance and Cuckoo Cycle mining (ASIC-resistance). The protocol is being developed in Erlang and Elixir, Erlang being the programming language of the primary implementation.

Q9. As far as I know, no other blockchain uses Erlang. Cardano also uses other functional programming languages.

Kind regards,
Vlad

Most of these questions were answered here. But better chec the forums:
Also check Erik Steman’s presentation which talks about Aeternity’s strenghts, Sophia, State channels in depth.

Vlad解答:
Q1。Sophia作为智能合约语言由Aeternity团队制作。这意味着它是在短时间内完成的。如何审核该语言?如何保证安全?
Q1。智能合约语言以完全不同的语言(基于ML,功能)开发。这从根本上改变了安全配置文件,使安全执行成为默认状态。创建该语言的开发人员非常有经验。最后,有一个测试基础架构可用于运行测试并识别可能的问题。

Q2。为什么主网不断推迟?已经3次了。 (对违背投资者承诺的强烈不满。)
Q2。如以前所述,在æternity,我们对推测不感兴趣,但对安全,高效的代码感兴趣,可供全球社区的开发人员和用户使用。延迟的主要原因是Bitcon-NG的实施,它之前尚未在PoW系统中实现,但对于运行良好的去中心化平台(如æternity)至关重要。

Q3。是否有区块链使用与状态通道类似的概念?如果是的话,Aeternity的力量比他们多吗?
Q3。越来越多的平台将状态通道技术视为链下解决方案。但是,状态通道通常作为第2层解决方案实现,这使得使用它们变得更加困难。在æternity中,状态通道是核心协议的一部分,使得它们的使用更加直接和有效。

Q4。我听说如果它使用状态通道,TPS没有意义。与其他区块链相比,它是否有任何真实的测试数据?
Q4。在下一个版本准备就绪后,任何人都可以在状态通道中测试智能合约的速度。状态通道中用户之间的交互速度仅取决于它们之间的互联网带宽。

Q5。虽然Ripple是私有区块链,但使用状态通道时Aeternity是否比Ripple更快?
Q5。这有点模糊。 Ripple主要是支付和结算平台,æternity是一个去中心化的应用平台。

Q6。治理投票由持有人的持有加权。看起来所有AE持有人都可以投票,但是,它有意义吗?大投资者可以团结起来,为自己的利益设定治理。
Q6。大量令牌持有者在系统中占有更大的份额。他们做出的决定最终会更影响他们,而不是少量的代币持有者。

Q7。投资者可以投票的治理清单是什么?
Q7。在主网t发布后,用户可以提出投票并对任何内容进行投票。这些“民意调查”的结果将向AE开发者反馈,以了解用户认为的æternity的最佳进步方式。

Q8。请描述Aeternity优于其他区块链的优势。
Q8。 æternity是一个公共区块链平台,支持去中心化的应用程序。它是一个区块链3.0项目,通过开发一种新型高效,加密安全协议来解决可扩展性,去中心化和可用性问题。

æternity协议集成了一套独特的尖端区块链技术。这些包括基于ML的智能合约和虚拟机,Bitcoin-NG共识(改进的链上可扩展性),状态通道(无限制的链下可扩展性),oracles(访问现实世界数据),命名系统(UX), - 链上治理和Cuckoo Cycle 挖矿(抗ASIC)。该协议正在Erlang和Elixir中开发,Erlang是主要实现的编程语言。

Q9。 Erlang看起来像区块链的好语言。是否有任何区块链供应商使用它?
Q9。据我所知,没有其他区块链使用Erlang。 Cardano还使用其他函数式编程语言。
