Safe: Securing $100 Billion of Crypto Assets - Lukas Schor

Episode Summary

We were joined by Lukas Schor, co-founder of Safe, to discuss Gnosis’ role in building early Ethereum infrastructure and tooling, and how Safe branched out to help secure >$100Bn worth of assets.

Episode Notes

What started out as a plan to build prediction markets, Gnosis ended up building crucial Ethereum infrastructure and tooling. Safe is one of its many successes, which originated during the 2017 ICO mania, as a solution for managing the raised capital securely, via a multi-sig. Even back then, the multi-sig model was quickly adopted by the entire industry, as a gold standard for asset security. Smart accounts and ERC-4337 represent the next step towards mass-adoption, through achieving a Web2-like UX.
