Anatoly Yakovenko: What's Next for Solana? | Permissionless II

Anatoly joins Mert to discuss his 5-year vision for Solana. In this discussion, we cover Solana's changing narrative, Firedancer's performance, Solana's shrinking hardware requirements, why Anatoly wants people to fork the SVM, the key to crypto adoption and why multiple slot leaders will be a huge upgrade for Solana!
