Description

This conversation has been a long time coming. Polynya is a pseudonymous writer, investor, and crypto researcher. 

Polynya coined the term “modular blockchain” and has been influential on 100 different crypto topics, most notably on rollups, though they’re quick to point out that rollups are no longer their main focus. 

This is a unique episode, in which Bankless DAO’s Eureka John acts out Polynya’s voice based on a 5-hour text-based discord interview. Tune in as we explore Polynya’s fascinating mind, covering their broad crypto thesis, EIP-4844, and the future of Ethereum Scalability.
