Logan Jastremski joins us to discuss how parallelizable, high-throughput blockchains are the solution for scalable crypto products. We start with Logan's high-throughput thesis, why isolated fee markets and parallel computation are crucial features and how to analyze node requirements. Logan then explains why L2s won't scale, how DAS solutions are a feature, not a product, and his take on AppChains vs sector-specific chains.
And as usual, we start the episode with our analyst bullpen to discuss Coinbase, liquid staking derivatives post Shapella, rETH's withdrawal design and token incentive design.
