In this interview, Felix is joined by Alfonso Cevallos. Alfonso is a researcher at the Web3 Foundation mainly working on optimizing Polkadot's Nominated Proof-of-Stake (NPoS) incentive mechanism. NPoS is based on a novel algorithm that seeks to optimize decentralization across validating nodes in a PoS network.
The interview covers Alfonso's background and his work at the Web3 Foundation, staking in Polkadot, as well as details and implications of the NPoS mechanism.
