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


The Language of Finance

tl;dr: you can’t build Web3 with a Web2 mental model I had the privilege of working with the Dapper Labs team, the creators of Crypto Kitties, NBA Top Shot, and the Flow blockchain, during a 6 month consulting arrangement a few years ago. My assignme...

When it doesn’t add up

2 Feb 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: Making sense of things when they don’t make sense. For a large part of my life, it was as if my right brain didn’t even exist. I looked (and sometimes still look) at the world from the cold, hard lens of logic. If it didn’t add up, it caused m...

The NFT Future- It’s a Badge

1 Feb 2022 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

I was reading the 2021 NFT Year in Review from 1confirmation and was struck by the overall size of the NFT market today. According to them, The total market cap of NFTs is ~$31.4B, just ~1.36% of the total market cap of  cryptocurrency ($2.3 trillio...

Web3 Liquidity

31 Jan 2022 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

I’ve been reflecting a lot recently on the idea of liquidity. More like trying to get my head around it, its importance, and how the sizes of liquidity pools will impact the winning platforms within Web 3. I know, kind of geeky, but where I struggle...

It’s NFTs all the way down

tl;dr: NFTs surround us everywhere already.. It’s just that we don’t call them that. Thank you Vegas. Over winter break, my family and I took a trip out to the Las Vegas area. We visited the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Hoover Dam and, of course,...

The Branding of Web3 and Data Liberation Movements

20 Jan 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: the momentum that the term “Web3” has picked up means it’s an idea whose time has come. I don’t remember the first time I heard the term “Web3.” It may have been from Chris Dixon, but I honestly don’t recall. I’ve long used the terms “c...

Digital Cleanse and CYA

19 Jan 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

This time of year- a time of new resolutions-is a great time to resolve to remove the invisible time wasters in our digital lives. I will admit that I’m guilty of occasionally glancing over at the screens of people sitting next to me on planes– so su...

Democratized and Demonetized

18 Jan 2022 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: Gold is the fat and lazy incumbent and it doesn’t know what is about to hit it. If software “eats the world,” then I guess it’s fair to start thinking about things which might get eaten, even if it seems unlikely. On page 35 of Messari’s Crypt...

Zooming Out

14 Jan 2022 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

One of my usual arguments for why it’s worth putting some money into Bitcoin/crypto (not investment advice!) is to “Zoom Out.” Everyone focuses on the day to day volatility, but there’s a reason that price charts have 1 day, 3 day…..All-Time graphs....

Transparent Organizations

I saw this angry tweet from Erik Voorhees directed at SEC Commissioner, Gary Gensler, who is rapidly becoming Public Enemy #1 in the crypto world. This is just one transparent DAO. If you go to Deep DAO that lists 164 such organizations. It ma...
