Mint the episode on Zora

Ethereum vs. Solana. That’s the debate we’re having today.

On Ethereum’s side we have Ethereum Researcher Justin Drake, and on the Solana’s we have Solana’s Co-Founder Anatoly Yakovenko.

They give us the good, the bad and the ugly of each other’s blockchain, settling their endgame towards the end of the episode. 

This was one, if not the spiciest debate we had on the show. We tried our best to give both guests time with minimal intervention. At times went well, at others it caused deep semantic rabbit holes. But overall both guests were able to communicate their messages.
