// Challenge 1 June 29th 2020: implement a binary operation parser.
// It must be implemented in Go, and the only import allowed is "strings".
// For bonus points, implement the scanner functions.
// The solution must start with comments with the following information:
// Your name, any open-source project links (on github, gitlab, anything publicly accessible).
// You have 24 hours, but it may not take nearly as long.
// We are looking for elegance of implementation.
// Test cases are not necessary, we will test code automatically, so keep the method signatures.
// Email solutions to jae+challenge@tendermint.com.
// For questions, email there or respond to @jaekwon's latest tweets.

NOTE: This is a partial forum.tendermint.com backup, a post from Nov 2014! Besides this, there was the vision statement of the multi-chain universe from Arthur Fall's interview "Bitcoin Uncensored", and then there was the Cosmos Network whitepaper where I (Jae) coined the term Inter-Blockchain-Communication (IBC) for short.

On the Applications of Tendermint technology

Go-Tendermint as of Nov 2014 is a bare minimal implementation of the Tendermint consensus protocol.

Before continuing development further let's discuss project directions. Here are some I have in mind:

  • Integrate Go-Tendermint with Conformal's Bitcoin API - supporting the existing Bitcoin infrastructure has its advantages. Clients should ideally work seamlessly with few modifications. Exchanges and other services would have little trouble supporting Tendermint. The Bitcoin community had put a ton of effort in designing Bitcoin with more BIPs on the way so we could build on top of tha

This is a response to recent public accusations on Twitter against me by Zaki Manian and Jessy Irwin.
I need to respond like this in public because otherwise it is not fair to me personally, for they accuse me and imply things about me that are not true, and thus destroy also the value of the company, and consequently also hurt the Cosmos project unduly.

Zaki and References to God

  • Zaki Manian appears to have a determination in him to completely destroy my reputation.
  • He and Jessy Irwin have consistently applied (before recent events, internally to the company) the abuse of asymmetry of information.
  • I guess they think that we are weak and that we would never speak in this likeness against them; I have no idea why else they would do what they do unless they are extremely daft and blinded by greed, or are held ho

Is Jae "stepping down from Cosmos"?

No, that's FUD, and probably intentional misrepresentation, or perhaps a mistake in translation.

Jae & CEO role of Tendermint Inc.

The goal is to eliminate the role of the CEO for Tendermint Inc, so it isn’t correct to say that Jae is “stepping down”. Rather, the role is being eliminated to decentralize Tendermint Inc. and implement checks and balances from within.

Tendermint Inc. organizational structure today comprises a sole decision factor, which is Jae Kwon, in his role of company's CEO. Jae and company has decided that moving forward the company will adopt a more decentralized corporate “Process” that is being developed along with the Virgo project.

Jae's Amino interface/proto3-compat proposal (version 1)

Proposed solution:

  • a Go interface is encoded as a top-level Proto3 message. In the example below, the Animal go interface is represented by a Animal proto3 message.

Summary

  • Agree on a plan to set up a testnet using the Cosmos SDK v0.34.0 release, along with mainnet conditions, plus transfer enablement and increased block size, as a testing ground.

  • After this proposal is passed and after successful testing, and after the software Git hash for v0.34.0 has been finalized, conduct a second proposal which includes the specific Git hash, using expedited rules to determine acceptance.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
