On today’s episode we chat with Andrew McFarlane, CTO at Validation Cloud. His company focuses on building out infrastructure for blockchains, supporting the nodes and validators that keep everything running and verified. McFarlane explains where popular languages like Rust and Go can be found in the Web3 world and why he thinks a crypto winter is the best time to be building fundamental tech.
