Jito: Airdropping the Solana Wealth Effect | Lucas Bruder

In this week's interview Dan and Sam are joined by Lucas Bruder, co-founder and CEO of Jito Labs. Lucas dives into the intricacies of Solana including the validator client, Solana LST providers, and the upcoming launch of Jito's Stakenet. He discusses the function of streaming transactions and how networks use algorithms and waivers to arbitrate these. Lucas explains the role of keepers, the limitations of current Solana systems, and how Stakenet aims to revolutionize the process by decentralizing the operation of the stake pool. Stay tuned for all of this and much more!
