This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) chats with Pedro Gomes (https://twitter.com/pedrouid), Founder of WalletConnect, about how wallets and DApps traditionally interact and the journey to WalletConnect and WalletConnect 2.0. They explore how the tech incorporates the Waku protocol, as well as the role of CAIPs (Chain Agnostic Improvement Proposals) in determining how WalletConnect evolves. Pedro shares what prompted the new WalletConnect 2.0 development decisions and his thoughts on what role the project will play in a MultiChain future.

This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) chats with Jordi Baylina (https://twitter.com/jbaylina) and David Schwartz (https://twitter.com/davidsrz) from Hermez about their zkEVM design that was first revealed at EthCC.

The original recording was done before the news of the merger with Polygon came out, so the trio came back together for a brief chat about what it means and how the zk space evolved in the past three years!

This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and Josh (https://twitter.com/acityinohio) chat with Jill Gunter (https://twitter.com/jillrgunter) (nèe Carlson), a well-known investor and crypto advocate, to dive deep into the eternal dilemma of privacy vs. transparency and how ZKPs can finally give us the tools to be more nuanced about our society’s approach to privacy. Starting from Jill’s background as a bond trader on Wall Street, the conversation quickly shifts into how the need for transparency in the financial system and the ability to root out bad actors clashes with the need to maintain individual privacy. This topic touches aspects such as crypto & DeFi privacy, how regulation may be applied to them, and why ZKPs and their power of selective disclosure can change the paradigm of privacy.

This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) chats with Kristy-Leigh Minehan (https://twitter.com/OhGodAGirl), a crypto and mining veteran primarily known for developing the ProgPow hashing algorithm. She offers a unique and in-depth perspective into the world of Proof of Work mining, starting from the early days of Bitcoin and moving into the first Bitcoin ASICs, the Ethereum GPU mining era, all the way to the present day of staking dominance. Some of these stories come from Kristy’s direct involvement in Genesis Mining, Core Scientific, ProgPow and her connection to the Ethereum mining community, which helps shed light on what miners will do after the Merge.

This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and Tarun (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) chat with Sunny Aggarwal (https://twitter.com/sunnya97) and Dev Ojha (https://twitter.com/valardragon) about their new project Osmosis, an AMM built into the Cosmos ecosystem using the IBC interoperability protocol. Osmosis brings some interesting innovations to the AMM table, starting from the seamless IBC integration to customizable bonding curves and per-pool governance to promote experimentation. Sunny and Dev are also very passionate about the topic of MEV, diving into the various types of value extraction, how MEV is mitigated on other networks and how it could be largely eliminated on Osmosis through threshold cryptography.

This week James (https://twitter.com/_prestwich) and Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) chat with Ben Edgington (https://twitter.com/benjaminion_xyz), Lead Product Manager for Teku, an Eth2 client developed by ConsenSys. Ben recounts his story of the involvement with Ethereum 2.0 from the very early months of Serenity and Shasper, and how those were completely replaced by the Beacon Chain concept that resulted in Ethereum 2.0 as we know it. Ben then highlights what changed after Phase 0 launch: the simplification of Phase 1 & 2 , the rollup-centric roadmap and the upcoming Merge with Eth1.

This week Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and Tarun (https://twitter.com/tarunchitra) host Noah Zinsmeister (https://twitter.com/NoahZinsmeister) and Moody Salem (https://twitter.com/sendmoodz) to learn all about Uniswap and the recent Uniswap V3 deployment. Noah and Moody go through the history of Uniswap from its EF grant days to Unisocks, Uniswap V2 and now Uniswap V3 and its ranged liquidity model. They explain all the benefits as well as the potential drawbacks, and how the project plans to fix them in a likely indirect way. At the end the conversation shifts into a multi-L2 deployment future and how that may increase MEV, leading Tarun to make an unexpected realization.

This week Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and James (https://twitter.com/_prestwich) chat with Elena Nadolinski (https://twitter.com/leanthebean), founder of Iron Fish, about the new privacy network and what led her to this point. Elena recounts her journey into crypto, starting from AirBnB and falling into the rabbit hole of Ethereum hackathons, Solidity, and NFTs, eventually leading her to exploration of zero knowledge proofs for honest computation. This deep dive into SNARKs and Sapling led to the creation of Beanstalk, later Iron Fish, which aims to be the shielded pool for all other blockchain assets.

This week, Anna (https://twitter.com/AnnaRRose) and James (https://twitter.com/_prestwich) chat with Antonio Juliano (https://twitter.com/AntonioMJuliano), founder of dYdX, a derivatives exchange on Ethereum that recently transitioned to a StarkEx-powered L2 infrastructure. Antonio brings a product-centric perspective to using scalability tech. He explains the choice of going for StarkWare’s products and how it compares to other layer ones or rollups. The conversation delves into questions like dYdX’s position in the decentralization spectrum, how that is going to change in the future, and what the L2 solution enables on the product side.

It's shocking to me how little people are aware of the Sia Network as a decentralized cloud storage provider. It's working right now and it's awesome!
