Today Jason is joined by none other than EigenLayer Founder, Sreeram Kannan. Sreeram kicks things off by sharing the founding story of EigenLayer and how Sreeram and the team thought about EigenLayer's value proposition. Jason then digs into the details; what are EigenLayer's Actively Validates Services (AVS)? Are there security assumptions related to slashing? What are the centralisation considerations for EigenLayer? What are the commercial incentives for builders? And much, much more. Enjoy the conversation and please share and like — it goes a long way.
