Today on the podcast, the Whiteblock Team joins host Tom Shaughnessy of 51percent to discuss their widely circulated technical research report titled; "EOS: An Architectural, Performance, and Economic Analysis Paper". Tom is joined by Zak Cole the CTO of Whiteblock, Nate Blakely a systems developer at Whiteblock and Daniel Choi a blockchain developer at Whiteblock.

    Why the actual throughput or tx/s of EOS falls short of what is marketed or promised. EOS can only handle a few dozen tx/s not 5,000 to 10,000 tx/s. The issues with having 21 block producers, and the formation of cartels. The results of the team's three-month analysis of EOS, which comprised thousands of hours. The issues with voting on EOS and why fixing the constitution cant fix the current problems. The problems with Bandwidth and Log Storage (Disk), Computation and Computational Backlog (CPU) and Storage (RAM) on EOS. Could Block One act against EOS or is the fact that we have to trust that they wont against EOS the real issue?
