🎙 Fabian Vogelsteller, father of the ERC20 Standard, on the Shift from Blockchain Addresses to Social Profiles with Lukso
Fabian Vogelsteller is a Blockchain veteran who was part of the Ethereum community in its very early days. He helped shape the Ethereum space, building an ETH Wallet and a web3 Browser, that were one of the first of their kind. Fabian is the co-founder of the Lukso blockchain and together with Vitalik Buterin, created the ERC-20 standard, a foundational building block for Ethereum.
The next standard Fabian is excited about is ERC725, which he says will help introduce blockchain-based profiles as opposed to accounts. Fabian believes this approach would be a seismic shift, improving usability and protecting users’ assets. We also talk about a web3 built on infrastructure that’s made up of proof of stake, sharding and zero-knowledge proofs, which Fabien believes will enable a more scalable and decentralized blockchain ecosystem. We chat about how sustainable this model is and how close we are to see it come to life and being used by the masses.
