Jose Maria Macedo sits down with Stanford Liu (Head of Research) and Joe Lim (Product Manager) of Terraform Labs, the team behind Mirror, a protocol that enables the trading of fungible assets, “synthetics,” that track the price of real-world assets. The trio discuss Mirror’s synthetics architecture, implementing concentrated liquidity for mAssets ("mirror" versions of real-world assets), notable upgrades in Mirror v2, and much more!
