Show Notes

Join your host, Conor Svensson, on the Web3 Innovators podcast as he welcomes this week’s guest, Igor Mandrigin, CTO and co-founder of GatewayFM. 

With extensive experience in tech, blockchain, and large-scale infrastructure, Igor shares his journey from scepticism to enthusiasm for crypto and blockchain technology and his insights into scalability, zero-knowledge proofs, and the future of infrastructure. You’ll also discover how GatewayFM is transforming the Web3 landscape by providing decentralised blockchain node services and addressing the challenges of maintaining servers.

Key Moments:

  • Igor's journey from scepticism to deep engagement with crypto and blockchain.
  • The importance of decentralised infrastructure and blockchain node services.
  • Challenges of maintaining blockchain nodes and the need for specialised providers like GatewayFM.
  • The role of zero-knowledge proofs (ZK) in blockchain scalability and efficiency.
  • The vision of a future with specialised "app chains" tailored to specific applications.
  • Upcoming announcements and developments from GatewayFM in September.
  • The significance of rigorous engineering in Web3's adoption by traditional industries.

Standout Quotes:

"It was really interesting stuff with some really, really hard engineering problems."

"With zkEVMs, only the validator has to execute this transaction, and then nodes just validate the proof and apply the results. It's way less computation for everybody."
