    A Holistic View of Ethereum and The Modular Ecosystem

    A Holistic View of Ethereum and The Modular Ecosystem

    We've been of the opinion that the Cosmos Hub and Ethereum rollup-centric roadmap are converging. Both of the scaling methodologies are somewhat opposites (appchains at first vs. baselayer L1 then building vertically), however they seem to be converging.



    The convergence of roadmaps is particularly interesting because of the challenges faced by Cosmos Zones and the need for upgrades via forking the chain.



    In today's episode, Andy hosted Ganesh Swamy, founder of Covalent, to discuss this convergence and more. We talked about scaling data availability in rollups with Celestia and blobs, preserving and accessing transaction data with the Ethereum wayback machine and competition between data availability solutions and Ethereum itself.



    Covalent emerged from a simple idea of 'pulling Ethereum transactions into Excel'. The core idea of creating a persistent, perpetual storage machine for blockchains is a result of Ganesh's extensive database engineering experience. We also discussed how this works under the hood, and why having a long-term data storage solution for blockchains is crucial.



    Towards the end we went on to discuss the troubles of the token economy that we are currently in. Negative sentiment, early stage investing, high FDV low float, and some of the potential solutions that we see out there.



    Join us for a holistic overview of some of the topics shaping the modular ecosystem going forward.

    ZK Proof Generation & Verification Explained

    ZK Proof Generation & Verification Explained

    If you've been listening in for a while you understand the idea behind ZKVMs and where we see them fitting into the modular stack. ZKVMs, from what we understand, are mostly focused on proof generation.



    However, a lesser known part of the ZK "magic" is directly verifying ZK proofs. We're interested in teams lowering the cost and time to verify.



    So, we sat down with Rob and John of zkVerify to discuss their dedicated blockchain for verifying ZK proofs, significantly reducing the costs and stabilizing the pricing of verification.



    We discussed the need to support different types of cryptography, why offering product developers the flexibility they need to create innovative applications in ZK is important, and proof aggregation. We also talked about how they settle proofs and whether or not its truly decentralized and trust-minimized.



    The idea behind integrating with multiple proof systems also came up as we discussed their plans to include Ethereum, Apechain, and Horizon's Eon within their proof verification system. While still in the early stages, the zkVerify team is already expanding into Bitcoin as well and pushing their mainnet soon.



    Hope you enjoy this somewhat technical, yet understandable ZK deep dive.

Mythreyan Ganesh ,

Super Insightful, Dope for Beginners

Love Andy and Rob. Super helpful and catered really well towards beginners as well. Started tuning into them when I had absolutely no idea what DeFi even was and learned so much from their videos. Highly recommend anyone that is interested in the booming market of crypto/DeFi listen to their content and interviews!

Louis Shulman ,

Big fans of these guys

They are passionate educated hosts. Tons of value here.
