My guest today is my friend Peng Zhong, the CEO of Tendermint. Peng has a background in interaction design and front-end engineering, he focuses on guiding blockchain technology across the chasm to the mainstream. Tendermint is a core contributor to the Cosmos Network and they are building some of the most powerful tools for distributed networks. Cosmos is an ever-expanding ecosystem of interoperable and sovereign blockchain apps and services, built for a decentralized future. At Tendermint, Peng mentors an incredible team that builds tools that improve the UX of blockchain for both developers and end-users. He also advises founders on building sustainable blockchain businesses.We do a deep dive into Cosmos and Cosmosland. In our conversation, we cover L1 maximalism vs pluralism, the importance of interoperability and recent launch of the IBC on Cosmos Hub, and how crypto has found product market fit and it's about scaling. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Peng Zhong.
