035: Ukrainian HyperInflation, German Libertarian Politics, Bitcoin/ETH/DeFi and more w/ Alex Gluchowski
On this Shelter-In-Place Episode, we talk to Alex Gluchowski, co-founder of Matter Labs. We talk about his parents fleeing European HyperInflation and how cash (dollars) was king there. We hear about his political introduction to Libertarianism and why it makes sense to him. We discuss his Crypto awakening, and whether or not he hodled. We also talk about Matter Labs and their roadmap for increasing scalability while remaining secure and private with ZKproofs (Zero-Knowledge Proofs) and other tools they’ve developed. We learn about some other projects he’s excited about and get his take on MakerDAO’s Black Thursday/Swan Event. Hit Play to hear all this, off-chain, supported by DSOTHM’s LFCKproof protocol (Lunar-Full-CryptoKnowledge).
