The 5th GM Radio will be broadcast on the Twitter space of “CP_Global” from 21:00 on Thursday, February 9th.
This time we have invited Connext co-founder Rahul Sethuram as our guest. He also holds the title of Ethereum (ETH) developer and investor.
The company has developed a protocol called “Connext”, which is the same as the company name. Connext is a protocol that enables interoperability of different blockchains in the Ethereum ecosystem. The company is involved in the development, but the project is open source and community driven.
In 2021, Connext attracted attention after raising $12 million in funding from 82 investors. Funds, cryptocurrency exchanges, staking providers, L2 founders, ecosystem projects and angel investors have invested in the funding. The main investors are as follows.
- coinbase ventures
- Consen Sys Mesh
- Sandeep Nailwal: Co-founder of Polygon (MATIC)
- Alex Gluchoski: Co-Founder of zkSync Development Company
Connext as a protocol is used to securely exchange cryptocurrencies and data across different blockchains. Developers can use Connext to develop cross-chain apps called xApps.
Behind the development is the issue of blockchain. Connext believed that “blockchain will not be able to process transactions when it spreads to general consumers”.
On the other hand, Ethereum and other blockchains are currently trying to solve this problem by transferring user assets and data through L2, sidechains, etc. However, Connext pointed out that ‘the user experience has become fragmented this time.’ The company aims to:
YouTube users don’t have to worry about Google’s distributed database.
Users of blockchain apps should also be unaware of which blockchain they are using and how they transfer assets to different blockchains.
The theme of this interview is “Connext public launch and native cross-chain app”. We will ask questions about the public launch of Connext, the benefits of xApps, future plans, efforts toward decentralization, and more.
