Our subsequent visitor beforehand served as president at Polygon Labs and was additionally the pinnacle of Gaming at youtube. Now he is becoming a member of a unit of the Optimism Basis. Becoming a member of us to debate is Ryan Wyatt, the Chief Development Officer of Optimism Limitless Ryan. Welcome to the present. Good morning. Thanks for having me. It is good to be again. It has been slightly bit. It actually has and congratulations the brand new place. Thanks a lot. I am excited. I am excited. I am on the street. You possibly can see him within the resort room. You all have me up vivid and early this morning. I am able to rock. We like to get individuals up vivid and early. All proper. So from polygon to optimism, each are layer twos, discuss to us concerning the layer two race. Um What makes one layer two stand out above one other? No, it is an excellent query. I believe it is enjoyable time to be part of the Ethereum ecosystem and constructing. You understand, I believe one factor we have all actually come to the conclusion so far as these constructing Ethereum ecosystem is that it may take a lot of these, whether or not you name them devoted app chains L twos, regardless of the case could also be to essentially scale this subsequent wave of adoption that all of us consider coming, you recognize, there is a new wave of a whole lot of builders which can be constructing, there’s been a whole lot of capital deployed throughout the app ecosystem. A whole lot of these apps that we have not even seen but. Um And so we, as we scale, we’ll want a whole lot of them. And so what does that imply? Nicely, how do these items begin to converse to one another? How do they develop into interoperable so that you simply begin to have these very seamless community experiences? You understand, I believe for customers, it has been powerful should you’re not like very crypto native navigating the ecosystem hasn’t been straightforward. And so we need to make that quite a bit simpler. I believe optimism is finest positioned to try this with the op stack. You will have, you recognize, corporations like Coinbase has chosen optimism to construct their, their stack with. So base is A L two that’s constructed on the OPP stack. And when these items begin to converse with, one in all you possibly can see all these customers are available after which be capable of seamlessly work round these protocols. So I believe level of entry goes to be actually necessary. And what optimism did with Coinbase was fairly crucial as a result of I believe a whole lot of us would agree that, you recognize, a giant funnel for crypto customers coming in might be by means of Coinbase. So, why do you want optimism greater than Polygon? Oh, I do not know if I’d have a look at it that manner. You understand, I spent the final decade at youtube in Polygon. Two, nearly two years of Polygon. Love my time there. I believe it was actually enjoyable for me to get to construct out, you recognize, a, a workforce and group at Polygon. I believe the work that I did there speaks for itself. However optimism may be very particular for a lot of causes. One, they’re far forward in what they have been capable of do from a decentralization standpoint. In order that they have two completely different mechanisms which I discover to be fascinating. One is what they name retroactive public items funding. Um And what that does is it, it places out form of a, a course of for builders on what to construct and in the event that they construct that and so they acquire the fitting traction and exercise, then they are often rewarded with op tokens. That is determined by the neighborhood. I believe that is what’s an excellent half about as a result of as we usher on this subsequent age, we actually have to maintain transferring ahead, real decentralization. And we won’t develop these massive groups which can be sitting on the protocol facet. Or else it’s totally disingenuous to the concept we’ll have these networks which can be really owned by no person. They’re owned by the neighborhood. And optimism made {that a} core a part of their ethos greater than every other chain or protocol that I’ve seen. And so I believe it makes them very particular greater than Polygon. Did you’ll get there? Yeah. Polygon will get there. You understand, I believe it is, it is a part of polygon. Had been they upset? Had been you want, ha ha, I am leaving to your competitor now? No, I really like them. I truly, II, I give all credit score to say deep, very sort uh as a part of the method, You understand, I employed a overwhelming majority of that management workforce and so it is all love you poach their management workforce as effectively. No, no, I employed a whole lot of the management workforce at Polygon. I am on day two. Come on, come on. I work quick however not that quick. I am solely on day two. No, I really like that workforce. I believe very extremely of the Polygon workforce. It has extra about like, what’s a match for me. And I actually like working with this optimism workforce and the place their hearts at and, and, you recognize, I have been a builder, I began the youtube gaming workforce. I constructed out a whole lot of polygon. I am excited to do the identical factor at optimism. I need to draw in your expertise from youtube gaming. Are you hoping to carry sport builders to the optimism ecosystem? And if that’s the case, what is the worth prop there? Yeah, completely. I believe, you recognize, that we will enhance on as a, as you mentioned in gaming. I find it irresistible. I believe it is actually a matter of focus, there isn’t any technical limitations that is prohibiting optimism from taking part on this ecosystem. So I believe it is about ensuring that we make it a spotlight a whole lot of the place optimism has accomplished effectively, has been even on social and id. So issues like pal tech and forecast are all constructing within the op ecosystem. So we’ll go after gaming and, and that might be a giant focus for us. It is a good time too as a result of if you consider just like the final couple of years, video games in internet three have been largely fairly rudimentary. You understand, if you consider the primary iteration, they have been, they have been nearly these, you recognize, financialized video games that, you recognize, did not have finest form of optimized outcomes that you’d need for. Um So I truly assume this subsequent iteration is primed for it. Um And I am actually excited to carry gaming to optimism. It is, it is a no brainer for us. You understand, after we speak about gaming, I believe lots of people routinely take into consideration these financialized video games once you discuss concerning the subsequent iteration. What does that appear like? What’s that? Yeah, you recognize, effectively, they have a look at, I imply, truthfully, that is, it is such a broad spectrum. You understand, there are issues like uh absolutely on chain video games the place actually each exercise that you simply’re doing is definitely on chain after which there might be elements of video games which can be solely doing a few of it, whether or not it is {the marketplace}, whether or not it is simply uh membership passes, no matter they do. I imply, you could possibly actually run quite a lot of completely different outcomes for a way you need video games look. I believe the actually the purpose it must be is that it is acquired to be video games first. You understand, I believe a lot of it has been just like the financialization facet first within the sport growth, however you noticed billions of {dollars} of capital come into particularly video games, internet three video games, it takes years for video games. So I believe a whole lot of it’s endurance to see extra of those, you recognize, higher thought out video games, higher produced video games. And they also’re coming, they’re on the horizon, they’ll be taking place throughout the ecosystem and look that is simply good for the house. I believe all of us are in an period now and out of our studying is like we have to root for one another and champion one another as a result of we simply need developer adoption and we need to begin seeing these items succeed and video games, video games might be in prime time, I believe in 2024. So uh what does the house appear like proper now although between uh for example between optimism and polygon, as you mentioned, you, you helped construct that workforce. Uh what is the uh the present panorama like? Yeah, I believe when it comes to market share and, and income, etcetera, you recognize, market share is so is so nascent to have to love put an excessive amount of of an emphasis on this. I believe the actual factor that everybody must deal with which can be L two options is look, we have got to scale this factor and you recognize, one chain like a primary web just isn’t going to do it as a result of there might be congestion. So it is like this accepting the truth that we’ll want a whole lot of L twos to be able to do that and the way you join these throughout the ecosystem. In order that’s to be the main target. It isn’t going to be a developer difficulty. Like there are such a lot of nice builders, there’s a lot capital on the market nonetheless for these builders, regardless of what, you recognize, public may say. And so it is, it may be ensuring that these consumer journeys that folks which can be going to come back in and use these apps that it is seamless that it is simple as a result of it hasn’t been proper. And like that is what all of us must be specializing in. You understand, the large dialog round all of those ecosystems is mainstream adoption. I consider we spoke about it on the present throughout your time at Polygon lab, Starbucks began their NFT primarily based loyalty program. Any massive partnerships within the works for optimism with mainstream manufacturers like Starbucks. Look, I believe we’ll, you recognize, my mo so uh I am certain there might be some within the uh you recognize, in, in, within the iron however um cannot share something proper now, however simply work with builders of all sizes, proper. Like, I believe the great thing about it’s you do not know the place the subsequent breakout goes to come back from. It. It’s not a assure that it is some massive enterprise or fortune 500 firm or regardless of the case could also be. I believe it could come from all completely different sizes and shapes. Sure. You understand, you could have an organization like Coinbase that picks optimism to decide on to construct their base community on. And so we that is Fortune 500 choice. You will see extra of it sooner or later. However yeah, we’re going to work with all sizes and that might be enjoyable. So, yeah, I believe maintain your eyes peeled. Certain. We’ll be on speaking extra. We would like to have you ever again, Ryan. We’re gonna need to wrap it there. Thanks a lot and congratulations once more on the brand new function. Thanks a lot. It was good seeing you each have an excellent day immediately. See you quickly. That was Ryan Wyatt, Chief Development Officer of optimism Limitless.
