Credible Commitments: How Pre-Confirmations Unlock L2 Interoperability | S7 E6 | Jonas & Murat

Season 7 | Episode 6

In today's episode Mike and Hart are joined by Jonas from Chainbound and Murat from Prime to dive deep into the emerging world of pre-confirmations on Ethereum L2s. They discuss the current challenges facing L2s including centralized sequencers and limited composability, and explain how pre-confirmations act as credible commitments to include transactions, enhancing both UX and usability. Different pre-confirmation models are explored, such as builders or L1 proposers issuing pre-confirmations, and the associated incentives and coordination challenges. The guests also touch on the broader implications of pre-confirmations and sequencing for L1 proposer requirements, L1<>L2 interoperability, MEV, and enabling new DeFi primitives.
