Episode 180: dYdX’s Antonio Juliano on using STARKs for scalability

This week, Anna and James chat with Antonio Juliano, founder of dYdX, a derivatives exchange on Ethereum that recently transitioned to a StarkEx-powered L2 infrastructure.

Antonio brings a product-centric perspective to using scalability tech. He explains the choice of going for StarkWare’s products and how it compares to other layer ones or rollups. The conversation delves into questions like dYdX’s position in the decentralization spectrum, how that is going to change in the future, and what the L2 solution enables on the product side.
