In this episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to Hamzah Khan. He’s the Head of DeFi at Polygon (formerly Matic Network) which is, in very simple terms, a protocol and framework for scaling on the blockchain.
Hamzah talks about his journey to becoming Chief DeFi Officer at Polygon, along with the genesis story of MATIC and how it evolved into Polygon.
We talk about what SDK is and what it means for the blockchain, some of the scalability challenges facing Ethereum, and whether Eth2 will solve these. Do we still need layer-two solutions and SDKs?
Hamzah talks about security — are layer twos as secure as layer ones? We also discuss how the MATIC token works, along with some of the projects that have been built on Polygon and which ones Hamzah is most excited about.
Finally, we chat about what’s coming next. How easy will it be to switch between Polygon and Ethereum in the future, and what does the future in general hold for this space?
