In this week’s episode, Anna chats with Sam Blackshear, co-founder and CTO at Mysten Labs. Sam has a background in programming language research and is one of the authors of the Move language, a language that can be used to implement custom transactions and smart contracts. They chat about Mysten’s concept of programmable objects and what properties are necessary to make this functional for a blockchain context. They also cover Sui, a smart contracts platform which is a generalized L1 with a new asset centric data model for parallel transaction commits being developed by Mysten, what’s next in the roadmap and some of the collaborations to come.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Polygon Miden.
Polygon Miden is layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum. Miden relies on zk-STARKs to roll-up thousands of layer 2 transactions into a single Ethereum transaction, increasing throughput and reducing fees.
At the heart of Polygon Miden is Miden VM, a Turing-complete STARK-based virtual machine which provides a level of safety and support of advanced features currently not available on Ethereum.
