By: Tegan Kline •DeFi Podcasts
Kain Warwick is the founder of Synthetix and a total crypto OG. Synthetix is a new financial primitive enabling the creation of synthetic assets, offering unique derivatives, an exposure to real world assets on the blockchain. Today we dive into what’s next for Synthetix with the latest V3 launch, what will cause the next big leg up in DeFi – what we’re calling DeFi Summer 2, the differentiation between different perps that exist in crypto, how Synthetix made the decision to launch on a Layer 2 so quickly and burn all bridges behind them. And it gets pretty spicy with some tea on FTX and 3AC. Before we dive into it, Kain is going to tell us what he’s been up to since we last spoke to him about what it takes to scale Ethereum last year.
