    Starkware Founders: Ethereum Could Surpass Visa's Transaction Speeds Within Months

    Starkware Founders: Ethereum Could Surpass Visa's Transaction Speeds Within Months

    This week on The Defiant Podcast we speak with Uri Kolodny and Eli Ben-Sasson, the co-founders of Starkware, one of the leading Layer 2 scaling solutions for Ethereum.

    Post Merge, Ethereum continues to rely on scaling solutions like Starkware and will continue to do so, according to the network’s long-term roadmap.

    Visa processes 1700 transactions per second, and that number is often quoted as the Holy Grail for a blockchain to become a viable settlement layer for finance. They explain how that can be achieved with the help of Starkware.

    In the early stages of building Starkware, Uri and Eli had decided not to launch a token. After two years of running Starkware and StarkNet being in alpha, is a STARK token on the horizon?

    Currently, Starkware is solely used for scaling Ethereum. We talk about Uri and Eli’s plans to expand Starkware’s services to other Layer 1s.

    Finally, we discuss the future of scaling solutions, decentralized applications, DeFi, NFTs, and more.

    ConsenSys' Ben Edgington On The Future Of Ethereum After The Merge

    ConsenSys' Ben Edgington On The Future Of Ethereum After The Merge

    This week on The Defiant Podcast we speak with Ben Edgington, the product owner of Teku, an Ethereum 2.0 client being developed at Consensys.

    It’s been a week since Ethereum switched from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Ben has been heavily involved in the process. We start our conversation by taking a look at the aftermath of the Merge.

    One of the biggest criticisms of The Merge was that Ethereum under PoS would become centralized. Proof-of-stake enables individuals to delegate their ETH to entities that stake on their behalf, as running a node might be inconvenient or infeasible. We discuss how roughly half of the staked Ether is held by a handful of validators and what Ben thinks about this.

    Finally, Ben shares his thoughts on the future of Ethereum and what comes next, now that the Merge is complete.

    Liquity's Robert Lauko On Censorship And Building A Fully Decentralized Stablecoin

    Liquity's Robert Lauko On Censorship And Building A Fully Decentralized Stablecoin

    This week on The Defiant Podcast we speak with Robert Lauko, founder & head of research at Liquity, an overcollateralized DeFi lending protocol and issuer of the LUSD stablecoin.

    Following the fallout from CeFi services such as Voyager, BlockFi, and Celsius, the focus has shifted back to the core values of decentralization, which Liquity tries to apply to the fullest: LUSD is backed purely by Ether and Liquity is governance-free and has no centralized frontend.

    Crypto mixer Tornado Cash was recently sanctioned by the US Department of the Treasury together with addresses that interacted with the protocol.   This prompted other DeFi protocols such as Aave and dYdX to blacklist those addresses in a bid to minimize legal risk.  Robert discusses how DeFi projects can deal with censorship.

    🎙 Stani Kulechov on Building a Social Network for Web3 so Users are Not the Product

    🎙 Stani Kulechov on Building a Social Network for Web3 so Users are Not the Product

    This week on the Defiant Podcast we speak to Stani Kulechov, founder & CEO of Aave, one of the first lending protocols in the DeFi space. He has been around since the inception of DeFi, now Aave Labs is the leading force in this completely new side to the web3 universe; social media. Lens aims to reimagine how social networks are built; providing an open protocol for applications to flourish, and giving users the freedom to own their information and take that data with them when they from one app to the next. Creators and influencers would monetize their content by reaching their audiences directly, and applications would gain revenue from these transactions, rather than relying on ads.

    Zcash's Zooko Says Crypto Users Must Have The Choice To Transact Privately

    Zcash's Zooko Says Crypto Users Must Have The Choice To Transact Privately

    This week on The Defiant podcast we speak to Zooko, the founder of  Zcash.

    Privacy remains one of the hottest issues in crypto after the U.S. Treasury’s recent move to sanction Tornado Cash. Zooko believes the ability to consent to what information is made public is more about freedom than privacy and he thinks that eventually, this will be expected in the blockchain space.

    We explore what a private transaction using ZEC actually looks like, with shielded addresses visible only to the sender and receiver.

    Finally, Zooko talks about The Electric Coin Company’s future plans, which include moving Zcash from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake and a standalone wallet.
