40min listen

We. Are. Here. Today we bring you: A deep dive into crypto scaling and L2. We’ll take a look at the what, the why and the how - why do we need to scale blockchains, what approaches we’re seeing, and of course - the future. All this and much more on today's Blockchain Insider!

gm. Simon Taylor and Cuy Sheffield are back this week to take another deep dive, this time into all things scaling and layer 2, including: Why do we want decentralisation and how is it achieved in traditional PoW blockchains? What solutions have been proposed and implemented for the scalability problem? And what are the main trade-offs at play? All of this, and much much more.

We are also joined by some amazing guests:

  • Mauricio Magaldi, Global Strategy Director, Crypto at 11:FS
  • Yessin Schiegg, CFO at NEAR Foundation
