Episode 174: Through the Cosmos Stargate Upgrade

In today’s episode, Anna and James chat with three representatives of the Cosmos ecosystem — Zaki Manian, Tess Rinearson and Shahan Khatchadourian — to learn all about its recent milestone upgrade, Stargate.

First up is Zaki Manian, co-founder of Iqlusion and Sommelier Finance, who sets the stage for what Stargate achieved and why the upgrade was the most comprehensive and complex yet for Cosmos.

Next is Tess Rinearson, VP of Engineering at Interchain, who recounted her deep involvement in the Stargate upgrade with an almost hour-by-hour replay.

Finally comes Shahan Khatchadourian, Cosmos Hub lead, who talks about his recent transition from the Ethereum ecosystem and how Stargate impacts the Hub, its users and its validators.
