Explorations of the emerging crypto-economic models and their potential implications


The Wall of Debt

The thing that scares me about the following analogy is that I can’t tell how much of my ego is intertwined with it. On the one hand, it would prove that I was right about fiat and crypto. On the other hand, I kind of don’t want to be right about it...

There’s a scene in the Big Short where the Brownfield Fund guys realize that they are right about the bets they are going to make. And they start to celebrate in the middle of the casino. Brad Pitt rebukes them.

Letting Go of NSM

I sold Never Stop Marketing a month or so before Covid started, but retained a small portion of ownership as well as my email address. However, the time has come to let go of that. NSM was-and is- a critical concept in marketing. You should never sto...

The Blinking Cursor

The prompt for this blog is: “What’s on your mind?” What’s on my mind is trying to figure out if I want to stay committed to the daily practice of blogging. On the one hand, it’s a meditation of sorts and probably for that reason, it’s worth it....

Smart Contracts that are Too Big to Fail

The other day, we introduced the concept of Composability vs. Interoperability, inspired by the article, Composability in the Context of Defi. In that post, I focused a lot on the benefits of composability, calling it the “superpower” of crypto. That...

Composability vs. Interoperability

tl;dr: the Layer 1s that don’t break atomic composability will have a competitive advantage. Why AC matters. Back during my consulting time with Dapper Labs, the inventors of Crypto Kitties and the NFT boom, I was working with them on the early stage...

The Bitcoin Narrative is Dead?

One of the things I hear most frequently from people is that, given the amount of inflation, the bitcoin narrative as an inflation hedge is “dead.” I can understand why people reach this conclusion. But here’s the thing? What happened to gold? A rece...

Camraderie

Everyone has rough days on occasion. It’s part of the game. Sometimes it’s nice just to have someone who will listen with a sympathetic ear. A friend of mine gave me a good piece of advice last night. “No one wants advice.” But they do want to fe...

Frequent Flyer Miles as Collateral

I saw a tweet about Starbucks initiating an NFT program. They got all of the “Web3” marketing buzz you might expect or want. The only thing is, unless I completely misread it, it’s really not a “Web3” thing. If “Web3” is about ownership, then this NF...

In DeFi, Are You the Sucker?

15 Sep 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

There’s a great quote in the movie, Rounders, where Matt Damon’s character says: "Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker. I think DeFi, today at least, is very similar....
