    Why One Chain Can't Rule Them All: Polygon's Aggregation Layer for Scalable Blockchains | Brendan Farmer

    Why One Chain Can't Rule Them All: Polygon's Aggregation Layer for Scalable Blockchains | Brendan Farmer

    In this week's interview Sam and Ren are joined by Brendan Farmer, the Co-Founder of Polygon. Brendan unpacks why no single blockchain can scale like the internet due to heterogeneous requirements across chains. He then introduces Polygon's solution - an Aggregation Layer that enables low-latency, trustless interoperability between ZK rollups to scale access to shared liquidity and state. They dig into interoperability and liveness, updates on ZK proof innovation, how the Polygon CDK and Aggregation Layer preserve sovereignty for connected chains, and the outlook for developer adoption to grow the Polygon ecosystem. To close out they also discuss novel use cases enabled by the Aggregation Layer. Thanks for tuning in!

    Why the Next Ethereum Upgrade Will Ignite Layer 2 Ecosystems | Analyst Round Table

    Why the Next Ethereum Upgrade Will Ignite Layer 2 Ecosystems | Analyst Round Table

    In today's analyst roundtable Sam, Ren, Matt, and Pibblez dive into a range of topics including Arbitrum's incentives program, issues with Solana's fee markets, Bitcoin L2 solutions, potential for Ethereum ETFs that enable staking, and the the upcoming Shanghai upgrade bringing several EIPs. The conversation opens by analyzing Arbitrum's incentives program, finding the TVL growth did not justify the high customer acquisition costs. They then dive into Solana's fee market issues, including inefficient compute usage and easy account spamming. Shifting focus to Bitcoin, the merits of different layer 2 construction approaches are weighed. Potential Ethereum ETFs come up next, with hosts excited by the prospects of staking rewards further enriching companies like Coinbase. Finally, the major improvements of Ethereum's upcoming Shanghai upgrade are discussed, including several EIPs that will directly boost the Layer 2 ecosystem.
