In this episode, d'Haussy discusses the launch of dYdX v4, and the potential tailwinds that could help decentralized derivative products gain market share in the years ahead.

According to d'Haussy, the decision to launch dYdX v4 as a standalone appchain in the Cosmos ecosystem was made to optimize the experience of dYdX users.

"If you need to upgrade to a new [tech] stack, you should be agnostic, and just think of the users, the experience, and the potential of the markets you've been working on."
