BlockchainBrad chats with Block Collider’s Co-Founder Patrick McConlogue about its mineable multi-chain protocol for stable coins, decentralized exchanges, and meta contracts. Today we talk about bridging the blockchains. Merging blockchains together into Block Collider is like building bridges between skyscrapers, or superhighways for cities. Hypothetically, one could build a building that has everything, but in practice some buildings are built to work in, some are built to live in — as long as citizens want to be in multiple buildings at different points in time, roads are valuable and necessary.

The mainnet will launch with interoperability between Bitcoin (via a drive chain), Ethereum, NEO, Lisk, and Waves.

What sets Block Collider apart?

Block Collider builds a new blockchain with a mining algorithm that consumes blocks from other blockchains as a part of its mining computational challenge. Miners who submit a bad block as their proof of work will be rejected by other miners and won’t get the block reward. As the difficulty rises, the same incentive framework that strengthens the Bitcoin blockchain will reinforce alignment with miners of the Block Collider.

Patrick McConlogue’s experience and background:

After diving into computer science at a young age, Patrick pursued a deep interest in computer security and cryptography, which eventually led him to publish notable cryptography tools including Hushbaby and SIL21. For the past four years, Patrick has worked in technology and finance as a data scientist, most recently at Citadel. Throughout his education and career, Patrick’s natural inclination towards innovation has spawned half a dozen entrepreneurial projects and two patents, all united by his drive to leverage technology towards freedom for all.

7 years of production experience in data science and cryptography using Node.js, R, Python, and Ruby. Patrick McConlogue specializes in finding solutions in the modern age with a diverse set of experiences ranging from financing rounds to large scale deployments for fortune 500 companies, Patrick is dedicated to bringing opportunities found through technology to as many people as possible.

After doing this interview, BlockCollider donated tokens to me. No discussion of set prices were ever discussed, as I don’t ever ask for money to do my interviews. That being said, a donation/gift was offered by the Block Collider startup subsequent to doing this interview and I accepted it to continue running this channel.
