Chain Reaction podcast with Dean Tribble and Zaki Manian: No Blockchain Is An Island

Host Tom Shaughnessy of Delphi Digital is joined by Zaki Manian, the Director of Research at Tendermint Inc and Dean Tribble, the CEO of Agoric. On this episode we dive into into how IBC (inter-blockchain communication) will connect blockchains to enable new use cases.
