Dramatic growth in DeFI has given rise to a new generation on-chain decentralized finance infrastructure that is designed to scale to support global-scale capital markets activity. Notably, Project Serum, initiated by industry leader Sam Bankman-Fried of Alameda and FTX, launched recently on Solana, a fast-growing Layer 1 chain optimized for speed and scale, co-founded by Anatoly Yakovenk. With USDC digital dollars coming to this ecosystem, we're excited to have these founders join for a conversation about Layer 1s, DeFi and Crypto Capital Markets. Indeed, this is as much about the here and now as the foundations being laid for a new global capital market and monetary infrastructure.
