Besides developing the 0x protocol itself, this includes contributing back to the technology stack we build on. In this spirit, I write EIPs and help improve various parts of the core Ethereum tooling. You can usually find me at meetups like Ethereum Magicians where these conversations take place.
Over the past year or so, I’ve been following the developments around DApp scaling and thinking about general strategy for 0x. We started actively developing this strategy after Devcon 4 and now is a good time to present some of our high-level ideas. A lot of this material was also covered in my closing keynote at EthCC Paris where I go deeper into the details of the technology.
Blockchain technology is in many ways still in its infancy, and this is particularly noticeable when it comes to scaling. It only takes a moderately popular project to fill up Ethereum’s blocks and send transaction fees skyrocketing. Users end up spending a lot on fees or waiting on long queues.
This is not just a bad experience for users, it also scares off some ...
