“Imagine a world without counterparty risk.”

On this episode of The Breakdown, Sergey and NLW discuss:

  • Brand-based contracts vs. math-based contracts
  • The history of smart contracts
  • What it means to build an “abstraction layer” for “universally connected smart contracts”
  • Key moments in the history of smart contract infrastructure 
  • Where smart contracts and DeFi are in terms of analogies to the early internet 
  • Why Sergey believes traditional finance will inevitably shift to a math-based contract model
