Guest: Carter Feldman

As if we needed another reason to be bullish on Bitcoin in 2024, QED is poised to catapult Bitcoin to a new level of utility. Carter Feldman joins the Pirate Pod to discuss QED and the promise it brings to the future of Bitcoin-based applications by supporting all dApps (such as AMMs, stable coins, and more) but also horizontally scalable applications and what that means. The conversation explores how QED is harnessing the magic of ZK Proofs, navigating the balancing act for Bitcoin developers who do not like ordinals and for the community to grown what is possible on Bitcoin, creating ability to write contracts in one language that are composable with a contract in another language, and more. QED has also launched the L20 Consortium alongside key players such as Starkware, ZKLink, Mina and more. The industry group is setting the standards for Bitcoin’s native execution layer that will make Bitcoin Layer 2s (and its dApps) as accessible as Ethereum dApps are for Ethereum users. Learn more about what is coming next – including TestNet and an abundance of opportunity.
