Season 4 of the tech world’s favorite show that loves to hate them, HBO’s Silicon Valley, seems to be about the Ethereum platform, which was created, in part, by Brooklyn’s Joseph Lubin.

So thinks, at least, Lubin’s startup, ConsenSys, which is a kind of studio for apps built on the Ethereum blockchain.

ConsenSys is the unrivaled blockchain leader in Brooklyn. The company’s projects and their spinoffs include StabL, an interesting new approach for being able to use dollars on the blockchain, and Ujo Music, an attempt to cut out middlemen in the music industry.

Earlier this year, ConsenSys joined in the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance, with several of the big banks, to think of ways to use the blockchain and smart contracts for the financial sector.
