Restaking's Renaissance: The Next Generation of Blockchain Security | S8 E1

This episode takes a deep dive into the evolving landscape of restaking and shared security. Mike and Myles trace the history of restaking from early iterations like Polkadot and Cosmos to the rise of specialized providers like Eigen Layer. They break down the market structure, analyzing the supply and demand sides, and exploring how new entrants plan to challenge Eigen Layer's dominance. The discussion also unpacks restaking's dual identities in exporting security to other chains versus upgrading base layer protocols, and touches on key challenges and risks to watch out for as the ecosystem develops.
