In this episode, we sit down with Lane Rettig and Alex Beregszaszi from the eWasm team at the Ethereum Foundation to talk about WebAssembly (Wasm).
We explore why Wasm was chosen as the instruction set of the future for Ethereum, what it means to switch instructions sets and why you would want to go with one over another. We also dig into Wasm specifics and tooling.
