In this week’s episode, Anna catches up with Anna Caroll and James Prestwich from Nomad. Together they explore the Nomad optimistic interoperability solution, how it first was developed, what lessons it takes from previous attempts at interoperability and cross-chain bridging, how the system works and more.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Polygon Hermez.
The Polygon Hermez zk-rollup is a layer 2 built on top of Ethereum that solves scalability issues through mass transfer processing rolled into a single transaction. ZKPs are used to present and publicly record the validity and correctness of the rolled transfers processed on the Ethereum blockchain. By storing just the proof and the compressed data of a batch of transfers, the efficiency and the throughput of the network is multiplied.
