This week, I talk to Phil Mataras about his love of heavy metal, gaming, and how he got into the blockchain. We also talk about how he balances his family life with his work and his philosophy on scalability. We discuss Arweave, AR.IO, and the exciting possibilities of the gateways. Through metaphors involving music, Star Wars, and different approaches to data privacy, we see a a new side of Phil. A great episode, thank you Phil!
