Polkadot’s Gavin Wood on Building a Layer 0 to Underpin the Entire Blockchain-Based Economy

This week on The Defiant Podcast we speak to Gavin Wood. Gavin’s crypto journey started with Ethereum – he was one of the eight original founders and the project’s CTO in the early days. Today though, he’s busy building Polkadot, a chain that is attempting to improve where Ethereum falls short.

After years of development, the ecosystem’s first applications are finally coming to life as it lays the foundations to become a layer zero, where multiple layer 1 chains and their decentralized applications can flourish. Where does Gavin’s story begin?
