Kain Warwick, founder of Synthetix, discusses the launch of the COMP token this week, including:

  • how this now meant that the governance of the Compound protocol was now in the hands of the community
  • whether liquidity mining in DeFi is similar to or different from transaction mining on centralized exchanges
  • what the price jump in COMP on day 1 means for a future DeFi bull market
  • why Kain believes he is already seeing Bitcoin flowing into alts and DeFi tokens
  • what this means for VCs who invested in layer 1 projects
