This week, Anna & Tarun catch up with Georgios Konstantopoulos from Paradigm – a key crypto VC. They chat about his move to CTO at the firm, the team he has built and what they are working on. Then they dive into Foundry – a fast, portable, modular testing toolkit for Ethereum app dev written in Rust. They discuss the tooling landscape, why Foundry is making a bet on solidity, the different types of testing that developers are doing and other open questions in the field.
