After spending time at Robinhood, Jay Jog is now co-founder and engineering lead for Sei Network, a L1 blockchain with a built-in orderbook. Sei is the fastest Defi layer 1 and is optimized to give DeFi apps an advantage, enabling entirely new financial products.
Why you should listen
Most layer 1s fall into a barbell distribution: two extremes with general-purpose chains on one end (Ethereum, Solana) and app-specific chains on the other (dYdX, Osmosis).
Sei unlocks a new design space between the two—not general-purpose nor app-specific, but DeFi-specific, which enables Sei to create an environment custom-built for DeFi applications. Sei features a built-in order matching engine, frontrunning protection, and the fastest finality of any chain (600 ms) currently in market. The combination of these optimizations make it possible for new types of financial products to emerge — everything ranging from live sports betting to complex options and futures.
