This week, Anna catches up with Sergey Gorbunov from Axelar and revisits the topic of bridges. They chat about what led Sergey to work on interoperability, the problems these solutions try to solve, how it compares to existing solutions, and what’s next for the project. They also chat about some of the challenges of a multi bridge landscape and the fragmentation of liquidity.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Polygon Zero.
Polygon Zero is a layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, powered by Plonky2. A groundbreaking prover system, which generates zk proofs faster than any other existing tech. Plonky2 supports efficient recursive proof generation allowing Polygon Zero to scale horizontally – meaning the throughput of the protocol is limited not by the weakest nodes on the network, but only by the total compute available.
