The Multichain Endgame: Modularity, Network Effects, and The Intent Paradigm | Season 7 Episode 1 Ft. Hart Lambur

In today's Season 7 premiere Mike is joined by our season co-host Hart Lambur, co-founder of Across Protocol and UMA Protocol. Join them as they explore the emerging multichain endgame. First, they discuss different models for interoperability between chains and how protocols may connect in the future. This ties into the rise of an intent-centric blockchain paradigm, rethinking how users specify outcomes. Next the touch on modularity as blockchain components become unbundled from entire protocols. They close out by quantifying which layers accrue network effects, exploring new shared security models, and discussing what outcomes would ultimately satisfy this multichain future.
