Danny Ryan & Tim Beiko: Eth1, Eth2, and the Merge

This is a conversation with Tim Beiko and Danny Ryan - the lead coordinators for the Eth1 and Eth2 development efforts - about the future of the Ethereum protocol.


My guests today are Tim Beiko and Danny Ryan - the lead coordinators for the Eth1 and Eth2 development efforts.

In this conversation, we go deep on the future of the Ethereum protocol together. We talk about the Merge (the transition from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake via the Beacon Chain - which is the most substantial Ethereum network upgrade to date, and happening sooner than many people realize), the cryptoeconomics of PoS, MEV, staking derivatives, and how protocol development works in practice.
