Unpacking Ethereum's Demand Drivers, Commodity Attributes, and Evolving Roadmap | Roundup

In this week's roundup Mike and Myles dive deep into Ethereum, analyzing its roadmap, monetary qualities, demand drivers, and commodity-like attributes. They review Vitalik's updated roadmap, discussing rollups, scalability, centralization concerns, and criticism around complexity. The conversation explores whether Ethereum can be "money", comparing it to Bitcoin and analyzing the demand side - from gas fees to rollup settlement to restaking. They also explore rollup sovereignty, the economics of native tokens vs ETH, and Stride's latest liquid staking proposal. Stick around for all of this and much more!
