Movement Labs: 'Facebook's MOVE Will Bring Billions of Users to Crypto' - Rushi Manche

Episode Summary

We were joined by Rushi Manche, co-founder of Movement Labs, to discuss the rise of modern VMs and how Move-VM aims to offset Ethereum’s shortcomings through parallelisation.

Episode Notes

Classical, monolithic blockchains are inherently limited in their throughput due to their single-thread execution architecture. Modern VMs attempt to solve this issue through parallelisation being implemented from the get-go. Movement Labs employs the Move-VM to build a ZK L2 rollups on Ethereum, thus also deriving its security. Through parallel execution threads, Movement achieves a theoretical TPS of 160,000 while also ensuring sub-cent transaction fees.
