    Episode 185: Exploring Uniswap V3 and a Multi-L2 Future with Noah and Moody

    Episode 185: Exploring Uniswap V3 and a Multi-L2 Future with Noah and Moody

    This week Anna and Tarun host Noah Zinsmeister and Moody Salem 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.

    Episode 182: The dive into ZK with Iron Fish’s Elena Nadolinski

    Episode 182: The dive into ZK with Iron Fish’s Elena Nadolinski

    This week Anna and James chat with Elena Nadolinski, 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.


    Note: James is an investor in Iron Fish
