Devcon VI

Fixing the Internet with Layer 2 Governance
10-14, 14:00–14:25 (America/Bogota), Talk 5

Web3 opens the door to a new cyberspace—one not only occupied, but governed, by its citizens.

The Optimism Collective is our attempt to correct meatspace's market failures with an L2.

But this talk isn't on scaling. It's about...

...the past: why Ethereum is not an opportunity, but a responsibility.

...the present: what we're doing to take this seriously & how it impacts our governance designs.

...the future: the path towards summoning Ether's Phoenix.

Ben is Chief Scientist and Musician at the Optimism Foundation.
