🎙 Tezos Co-Founder Arthur Breitman Looks Forward To No-hype Crypto Shining Through
This week on the Defiant Podcast we speak to Arthur Breitman, the co-founder of Tezos. Created together with his wife Kathleen way back in 2014, Tezos mainnet was launched in 2018 as a proof of stake chain with smart contracts, a combo that has now become the industry standard. They were very much ahead of their time.
Yet, Tezos has been slower to pick up than other Layer 1s such as Ethereum & Solana. We discuss its upcoming upgrades and roadmap, and how Arthur sees a deeper DeFi and NFT ecosystem evolving on the network. He argues that with the hype and vanity metrics of the bull run fading away, Tezos approach of what he considers is more thoughtful building, will shine through.
We also talk about how this current bear market compare to previous ones, as Arthur has seen a fair share of volatility during his time in the space. We also talk about governance, as on-chain governance is a key difference between Tezos and other Layer 1s. Arthur dives into Tezos experience so far and how that can apply to DAOs.
