Vitalik Buterin: ETH 2.0 Driven by Simplified Sharding, Optimistic Rollups and Native Cross Shard Communications

Host Tom Shaughnessy of Delphi Digital (DelphiDigital.io) is joined by Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum to discuss his recent post titled: Eth2 shard chain simplification proposal. On this episode we discuss Vitalik's view on how simplified sharding, and optimistic rollups could drive 100k transactions per second in one year. We also discuss the benefits of native cross shard communication that is enabled by this new scheme. This was a very informative episode, and I think Vitalik for hopping on the podcast on such short notice, literally minutes after I read this post.
