Episode 152: Blockchain analytics with Alex Svanevik from Nansen
10/21/2020
In this week’s episode, guest host Tarun Chitra (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) and Anna chat with Alex Svanevik (https://twitter.com/asvanevik?lang=en), CEO & cofounder of Nansen (https://nansen.ai). They cover crypto analytics, DeFi analytics as well as discuss the push and pull between a need for privacy and the need for blockchain transparency and data. Topics include: can DeFi and Privacy co-exist, how being aware of blockchain analytics could help people improve their opsec, the role of reputation in these systems, and, finally, how analytics in public blockchains may used as a novel marketing tactic (eg. when someone purposefully makes a big buy, knowing sophisticated traders are following their every move using these analytics tools and will see this as a signal to buy as well). Thanks to this week’s sponsor Aleo (https://aleo.org/) Aleo is the first platform for fully private applications. It uses blockchain and zero-knowledge cryptography to deliver a web experience that is both personal and private. With Aleo, developers can write private applications, without a background in blockchains or expertise in cryptography. Aleo has released Developer Preview I (https://developer.aleo.org/aleo/getting_started/overview/), an early peek at what the future of the web will look like. The release introduces a new programming language called Leo, a new community-driven package manager for Leo, and a new development environment or IDE called Aleo Studio (https://aleo.studio/). We recently had Howard Wu, a co-founder of Aleo, on the show for an interview - you can find that episode here (https://www.zeroknowledge.fm/144).
