Host Tom Shaughnessy of is joined by Jacob Arluck, a governance research at Tezos. This is a timely episode since governance is becoming more and more important given recent events with Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and of course with Tezos itself over the long term.

Jacob gives us a complete rundown on how the innovative governance structure at Tezos works and compares it to Ethereum and Bitcoin. The discussion includes the importance of governance at the base blockchain layer, how this effects everything built on top (applications) and the problems with a bad governance structure.
