High Rollers:

Happy Wednesday!

Today, we’re delving into the fascinating world of Polymer, a project once focused on bridging IBC – Ethereum, now with a new direction to solve the Cosmos distribution problem and Ethereum’s rollup fragmentation issue.

They aim to bring native IBC compatibility to Ethereum rollups using the OP Stack.

In this Devconnect convo, Robbie sits down with Bo from Polymer labs to go down the rabbit-hole of enhanced rollup interoperability, bringing IBC to rollups, and more.

Polymer’s trust-minimized nature and its ability to inherit security from Ethereum are highlighted, emphasizing the advantages of connecting rollups using their technology, which builds off the foundational priniples of IBC.

Bo is huge IBC maxi, and for good reason. Join us us as we uncover the reasoning behind the new direction and much more.


The Rollup.
