Join us on 0xResearch as we interview Jayendra Jog (co-founder of Sei) to discuss Sei, a highly optimized sector-specific L1 with a built-in order-matching primitive. Put simply, Sei is building the premier infrastructure for decentralized exchanges. In this episode, Jay explains why Sei chose the Cosmos SDK, why pursue a sector-specific chain, the mechanics behind optimistic block processing and parallelization, Sei's validator set, native oracles and more!
And as usual, we start the episode with our analyst Hot Seat/Cool Throne segment, where we debate the banking system meltdown, Curve's wild volume, USDC's depeg and more!
