  1. Just FYI on why I didn't cover Arbitrum's sequencer going offline:

    I covered it last time they went down on the refuel (it was for similar reasons) so I figured it was redundant to cover it again.

    I can cover it tomorrow if people want!

  2. i dont remember what the reason was when arbitrum went down last time. i would find it helpful if you cover it again. thanks for the content!

  3. Crypto market is becoming more appealing to investors seeking low-correlation assets that diversify portfolios, with no doubt in mind that we are going bull with little signs of stopping. I'd say it's out rightly wrong to just sit back hold and wait maybe incur some losses along the line, that's a wrong mindset for an investor because as an investor finding ways to always increase and stack up more coins thereby making profits should be the way of life, even experienced traders are in a doubt to take long or short position, The conditions of this bull market are unlike anything we have ever seen. I got this tips first hand from Ethan Wilbert he is always a step ahead of other traders, he fully monitored all my trades to avoid me making mistakes and losing my money. My earnings has increased drastically from 2.1Bitcoin to 17.7Bitcoin in just 3 months and 2 weeks. I've got full confidence in he's trade abilities. it's advisable for every investor to take advantage of he's strategy , Ethan can be reached on 🆃🅴🅻🅴🅶🆁🅼@ [ @Tutorwilberts]

  4. Would love to hear your take on what the rollout of future Polygon L2s will be like, for example will NFTs on the C chain be compatible? Or will they be stuck on the POS chain permanently? Thx 🙂

  5. It took like what..20-30 years for the internet to even get close to the point where it was ready for mass use?

    A lot of these web2 people have a weird bias where they have an incorrect perception of how long it takes to scale NEW technology..because scaling applications and platforms within web2 is very quick and easy

    But they are iterating within an already existing technology instead of building an entirely new technological infrastructure so it's much easier to scale

    We are building from the ground up so takes a bit longer

  6. Agree with other comments in being surprised about no talk of arbitrum being down. Thanks for the awesome episode though. Love listening to these daily!
