High Rollers:

If you have been here since day 1, you know we did a podcast with Qiao Wang in 2020 shortly after DeFi summer.

What a time to be alive.

In todays podcast, we cover a variety of topics, including cross-border payments using stablecoins, the differences between Ethereum and Solana, the significance of L2s, Solana’s upcoming upgrade Firedancer, his take on modular vs. monolithic, the state of private markets, the infra vs. dApp investing thesis, and Qiao’s thoughts on the 4-year cycle.

This was a really good refresher from a DeFi OG and someone who we really respect and look up to in the space.
