    The most innovative DEX? - with Hasu and Felix Leupold

    48:47

    Earlier this week, I did a deep dive on a new DEX trading protocol called CowSwap, which combines many good features into what is possibly the most complete trading experience in Defi. First, you no longer publish a fee-paying transaction to the public mempool. Instead, you sign a transaction and submit it off-chain to the CowSwap relayer, which handles all the execution. For you, this means you can safely set a very low slippage tolerance because you only ever pay a fee if your trade succeeds. Second, and this gets us to real innovation, CowSwap looks for so-called “coincidents of wants” or CoWs before sending your order to the regular on-chain exchanges. For example, if one trader wants to buy ETH at a certain price and another wants to sell it, these two can be matched without paying any LP fees. Off-chain solvers can look at this orderbook and submit optimal matchings that among others, guarantee that all trades in a certain batch have to settle at the same uniform price. Because there’s no point in reordering trades that have the same price, this also eliminates MEV as well. Only after all coincidents have been exhausted, CowSwap sends the rest of the order to the on-chain exchanges via smart routers like 1Inch If you didn’t get all of that immediately, don’t worry - neither did I, and that’s why I invited Felix Leupold from CowSwap and Gnosis to answer my remaining questions. Please enjoy my conversation on CowSwap with Felix Leupold.

    Interview with Zee Prime Capital, Part 2 - with Su Zhu and Hasu

    1:01:25

    This is part two of our conversation with Matti and Fiskantes of Zee Prime Capital. While the first half was more philosophical in nature, this time we talked exclusively about different blockchain projects and how they might connect to each other in the future. I believe that with gas fees in Ethereum being as high as they, the advent of sharding and layer two solutions, and the first credible Ethereum competitors like Polkadot, Cosmos, and Solana coming to mainnet, this topic has never been more relevant. In this episode, we covered Why Zee Prime invests in Polkadot and its ecosystem Different approaches to interoperability Binance Smart Chain What role Bitcoin and Ethereum will play in a multi-chain future Part 1 of 2 https://anchor.fm/uncommoncore/episodes/20-Matti-and-Fiskantes-of-Zee-Prime-Capital---Part-1-eqfb0m Su Zhu https://twitter.com/zhusu Hasu https://twitter.com/hasufl Our homepage and mailing list https://uncommoncore.co/podcast/
