The Competitive Advantage of DAO Transparency

24 Feb 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

I initially was going to call this post, “why DAOs will win,” but reconsidered as I tended towards hyperbole. And yes, there are probably times when a centralized entity may actually be better. However, and what got me going this morning, was spendin...

Tribal Values

One of the things I’ve been investigating at Radix is to try and identify the common set of core values and beliefs that members of the community (i.e. token holders) have about the project. My hypothesis is that, if we can identify the common...

Status Marketplaces

Yesterday, in Status and the Nation State, I was inspired by the article Status as a Service. Given how long it was (and, tbh, how rushed I was when I wrote it), I don’t feel like I did the 51 page essay justice in my post. That’s probably not going...

One of the things I care most about (for some reason I don’t fully understand) is that our financial system needs to be rewired and decentralized. To accomplish that is going to require a DeFi platform that can not only scale to billions of users and...

I was sitting in the sauna with my friend, Brett, when he asked me if I had ever read the book “Sapiens” by Yuval Harari. I had, but it had been a while. Brett, who is fresh in the middle of the graphic novel version of the book, gave me a fresh...

So, if you missed the NFT digital art boom, you have another chance. Of course, if I’m telling you about this, odds are you have missed the first wave, but as I’ve said about NFTs for a while now, ‘they are both overhyped and here to stay.” Next up o...

tl;dr: what one of the world’s greatest investors can teach decentralized communities I was chatting with a friend of mine who used to work very closely with Ray Dalio, the famed founder of Bridgewater Capital. Create Conflict and Solve Amicably I as...

Web 3 Is About Legacy

I was speaking with someone the other day about his crypto project and we got to a point in the conversation where I said, “you know, it doesn’t really matter if your company succeeds or not what matters is that DeFi succeeds.” “Yes,” he said, “this...

The DeFi Imperative

4 Feb 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

I was listening to NPR the other day and heard a story claiming that a new billionaire is created every 26 hours. After wondering for a split second what I was doing wrong, I tuned on a second salient fact, that the top 1% of people added immens...
