    Technical Meeting - 09.10.2016

    Release-Management / Development-Process

    1. Sidechains

    a. How will users get protected of malicious blockchain apps running on Sidechains or mainchain? The same goes for delegates securing sidechains. Will their nodes be protected somehow from getting compromized? (distro)

    2. Node running

    . How important are nodes >101? Are they helping to stabilize the network in any way, when they are >101? What exactly are they doing? (punkrock)

    a. Followup: If nodes >101 aren’t useful, is it best to not have too many since all they are doing is adding another node where everything has to propagate to? (I thought I had read that they just add extra work for the network) (MrV)

    3. Lisk Clients

    4. Security

    5. Fees

    6. Other

    . The quotation is taken from the official blog of Dan Larimer. His thoughts about Smart Contract Scripting Languages.
    "...From what I can tell about Lisk and it's reliance on Javascript, it is not suitable for running untrusted code on a public blockchain in the same way Ethereum is. Lisk is targeting a different market. When I first heard of lisk I was excited because I thought they found a deterministic Javascript interpreter with sandboxing and computation metering; I was wrong..."
    Can you comment it? (vi1son)
