Episode 65: Bridges, xDai and Burner Wallets with Igor & Austin

In this week’s episode, we sit down with Igor Barinov from POA Network and Austin Griffith from Gitcoin Labs to discuss bridges, xDai – the new side-chain where DAI is the native token – and Austin's super simple Burner Wallet.

Bridges are a wide topic and with this conversation we try to give some insight into what they are and how they work. We look at xDai as one concrete example of such a bridged side-chain and Austin talks about his burner wallet that can provide a super snappy nice UX thanks to running on this faster side-chain.
