The Future of dYdX & Decentralized Trading | Antonio Juliano, Founder

In today's interview Sam and Ren are joined by Antonio Juliano, the founder of dYdX. They kick-off by discussing the migration from V3 to V4, the platform's focus on permissionless market listings, and the importance of isolated margin. He shares insights on the competitive landscape of decentralized derivatives exchanges, the challenges and solutions related to MEV, and the role of USDC issued by Noble in dYdX's growth. Antonio also touches on the platform's validator set distribution, the potential of yield-bearing collateral, and the dominance of perpetual contracts in the crypto derivatives market.
