    Ethereum and The Trillion Dollar Internet Bond | Chris Perkins

    Ethereum and The Trillion Dollar Internet Bond | Chris Perkins

    Chris Perkins has a fascinating background as a marine who was shot at in Iraq, was at Lehman bros when it all came crashing down, was a Citigroup trying to pick up the piece of the financial crisis where he first ran across Gary Gensler, and now he’s in crypto. We talk about all that, but that’s not even the main event.
    The Main Event is Ether the asset and a new reference rate he’s building on top of it. This sounds in the weeds but it’s actually actually key to unlocking trillions in new financial products. You might call this new rate the Libor for ETH.

    Justin Drake & Ben Fisch: The United Rollups of Ethereum

    Justin Drake & Ben Fisch: The United Rollups of Ethereum

    In today’s episode, we do a shared sequencing deep dive with repeat guest, Mr. Moonmath himself, the Blockchain Brainiac, and the Ethereum Evangelist– Justin "The Juggernaut" Drake. Justin is joined by The Sultan of Sequencing, the Espresso Emperor, the Cross-Rollup Connoisseur himself, Ben, the Blockchain Barista Fisch.  
    Where the fragments of Ethereum threaten to turn the digital ecosystem into a maze of confusion, these two men stand tall, illuminating the way, to come and save us from the labyrinth of Ethereum’s rollup-centric roadmap.
