Karl Floersch and Ben Jones from the Optimism team join the podcast to discuss their research and plans around optimistic rollups, a scaling solution for Ethereum. They break down and explain what optimistic rollups are and how they can improve the Ethereum experience. They recently announced the OVM which allows application developers to easily port over their smart contracts from the EVM chain to the OVM chain. They then talk about their recent funding raise and unique ways to fund these efforts. This is a great walkthrough of the new breakthrough scaling technology coming to Ethereum.
