In this episode of Tech Talks Daily, I sit down with Ken Timsit, Managing Director of Cronos Labs, the driving force behind the Cronos chain ecosystem’s remarkable growth. Cronos, known for being the first EVM-compatible layer-1 blockchain network built on the Cosmos SDK, has seen a staggering 600% increase in on-chain transactions and a quadrupling of its user base despite the market’s volatility.
Ken, who has been instrumental in this exponential growth since joining Cronos in November 2021, shares his experiences and the strategic moves that have led to the flourishing of over 500 dApps within the Cronos ecosystem. He sheds light on the Cronos Accelerator Program’s second cohort, emphasizing the program’s focus on AI and its implications for the future of blockchain applications.
Listeners will gain a deep understanding of how Cronos is nurturing its ecosystem, with Ken discussing the accelerator program’s contribution to the chain’s success. He elaborates on Cronos’ commitment to building a blockchain with utility at its core, aiming to serve an addressable user base of 80 million, with particular attention to GameFi, DeFi, SocialFi, and infrastructure.
We also venture into the broader industry outlook, examining the exciting intersection of AI and blockchain technology. They discuss the implications for the future of decentralized finance and blockchain games, as well as the potential for these technologies to redefine social interactions and business models in the digital age.
