We’re never ones to shy away from the big questions, and this week we tackle of the biggest facing blockchain – how on earth do we scale this? It’s well known that most blockchain systems don’t handle volume well, and those that do often make other trade-offs that may be less than ideal. Thankfully, there are several potential solutions on the way, so we dig into Lightning Network, Sharding, Block Increases, Parallel Execution, Delegated Proof of Stake, Off-chain Execution and DAGs. Yes, that sounded daunting to us too – but we do our best to explain it all!

Development is picking up on EOS as they ramp up to an early June release, so we also give a big update on everything you need to know there (remember to register those tokens!) We also cover a bucket of news, including the special crypto-economic zone in the Philippines, a hack on MyEtherWallet and Intel’s drug tracking blockchain. To top it all off, we review the Yahoo Crypto Screener, which is surprisingly good.

Oh, and Dan Dan the ICO Man comes out of self-imposed exile to shill his latest ‘innovation’ – The Ultimate ICO Success Formula. Just another episode of the FOMO Show ladies and gentlemen!
