On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dr. Petty, and Erica Amatori sit down with Arjun Bhuptani, CEO and Co-Founder of Connext. Connext builds and maintains scalability solutions for crypto payments. One of their first major PoCs for the tech they're working on is called "MoneyShot". It's a service to quickly send micro-payments on the Ethereum network by utilizing what are called "state channels". We discuss the implications of this tech for developers, and lessons Arjun's team has picked up finding the right tools devs need to scale their DApps.
