Nov 24, 2019 · 2 min read

Everyone talks about layer-1 decentralization, but few are able to quantify it as “decentralization” is a really broad term. At our latest Dystopia Labs meetup, Mally Anderson & Everett Muzzy from ConsenSys discussed the different categories, subcategories, and metrics used to measure decentralization (+ shared a lot of really interesting data points).

The takeaway for attendees is that you’ll have a basic methodology / framework for quantifying the health & potential of various layer-1 protocols

Meetup #5 — Objectives:

  • be given a comparable framework / methodology for quantifying decentralization across multiple blockchain protocols
  • get data & insights on decentralization for Ethereum
