Protocol Weekly is a newsletter to exclusively showcase the progress of Ethereum protocols and other layer 1 chains.

Hello everyone to another week of Protocol Weekly. Last week I went to EDCON in Syndey which was a bunch of fun. My main two highlights were Vitalik giving an overview on how Casper CBC worked and then hearing him rap about Ethereum to the best of his ability. Highly recommending watching that clip if you haven’t already.

Also, last week I finally published my piece on Cosmos and Polkadot (https://tokeneconomy.co/the-state-of-crypto-interoperability-explained-in-pictures-654cfe4cc167). Something that’s becoming clear with the current state of development timelines is that:

a) Launching a chain is much, much harder than anything thinks it is

b) Since launching a new chain is extremely difficult, layer 2 solutions that offer security guarantees of a base layer chain with the scalability of their own ecosystem are going to be extremely important.

For example, interoperability that can make use of DeFi on Ethereum is still a couple of years away at the minimum. It seems to me that when inter-chain communication frameworks are fully developed that’s when we’ll start seeing more substantial action. Until then, it’s build time.
