They say if you want forest heterogeneity, just get a larger group of foresters to mark the stand. While it is true that not every forester marks the same, it is often challenging if we want to intentionally create spatial variability. Especially if we want to emulate spatial patterns that would be typical for a specific forest type and natural disturbance regime. The ICO method (which stands for individuals, clumps, and openings) is a stand-level tool developed in the western US to help foresters restore the patterns of individual trees, clumps, and openings commonly found in pine/mixed conifer forests shaped by frequent fire disturbance. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Sean Jeronimo, as we learn how this method is applied in the field and how it may be useful in a variety of forest types shaped by fire.

Yves La Rose is the CEO of the EOS Network Foundation and a modern-day samurai. EOS was the largest ICO and raised over $4 billion in the biggest initial coin offering of all time. With its promise of being more efficient than other cryptocurrencies, EOS gained a reputation as "Ethereum on Steroids." Over time, however, users declined, its token's value declined, and developers left the project. Yves La Rose and the EOS community are determined to bring EOS back from the dead. Why you should listen The EOS community, led by Yves La Rose, feels that the ICO funds were used for unrelated ventures and that Block.one has neglected the project. The community has shifted its focus and is determined to regain control of the platform. As a result, there is now a renewed emphasis on developing the core technology of EOS. The EOS Network Foundation is coordinating and advancing the EOS network, including its upcoming major consensus upgrade, Antelope Leap 5.0. Yves expresses optimism for EOS's future and aims to regain its position among the top ten cryptocurrencies due to its scalability, mass adoption potential, and impressive transaction capabilities at low cost with reliable uptime. https://www.coinsbee.com/en/ https://eosnetwork.com/ If you enjoyed the show please subscribe to the Crypto Conversation and give us a 5-star rating and a positive review in whatever podcast app you are using.

Everything You Need To Know About the SEC vs. Ripple Lawsuit The SEC vs Ripple has been a landmark case for the crypto industry and recently the Judge presiding over the case ruled that Ripple did not violate securities law in selling its XRP token via public exchanges. In this episode, Ian Andrews, brings on securities law and blockchain expert, Lewis Cohen, co-founder of DLX Law, who explains this case is far from over and still has serious implications for the crypto industry. Lewis provides a background on securities laws and how they may apply to cryptocurrency, ICOs and NFTs and how decentralization is not the sole determining factor in whether a token is a security or not. He analyzes the judge's ruling in the Ripple case, highlighting the distinction between institutional sales, programmatic sales, and other distributions, while explaining the impact on exchanges and the ongoing litigation of other major crypto trading platforms.

InvestaX is a tokenisation platform for real and privately managed asset funds based – where else? – in Singapore, the financial centre that is doing more than any other jurisdiction to turn the idea of tokenisation into a reality. Like others in Singapore, including the regulators, the founders of InvestaX believe that DeFi innovations such as automated market-making have an institutional future – and not only because their experience dates back to the ICO boom of 2017-18, that intensely creative period in which the origins of tokenisation lie. To be part of its institutional future, InvestaX has secured operating licences from the regulators and chosen to work with regulated institutions on both the cash and custody sides of its business. And they are operating in the most progressive financial eco-system on the planet, where institutional DeFi is being built by regulators and regulated. Dominic Hobson, co-founder of Future of Finance, spoke to Alice Chen, co-founder, chief operating officer and general counsel at InvestaX. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Our guests this week are Vibhu Norby and Degen Poet. Vibhu is the founder of DRiP, a platform that allows users to receive free NFT collectibles, commissioned from artists and projects across the landscape of crypto. The project has grown exponentially since its inception, with over 300,000 wallets receiving at least one NFT a week. Degen Poet, a prolific artist on Solana, has been a key collaborator on the project. Vibhu and Degen Poet discuss how DRiP is changing the game for NFTs and why the first experience people have with blockchain should be through art. Plus, they share their unique processes for creating and distributing NFTs, and why they choose to plant their flag in Solana.

Full Transcript:Brian Friel (00:00):Hey, everyone and welcome to the Zeitgeist, the show where we highlight the founders, developers, and designers who are pushing the Web 3.0 Space forward. I'm Brian Friel, developer relations at Phantom. And I'm super excited to reintroduce our first repeat guest, Vibhu Norby, as well as Solana's very own Degen poet, Vibhu and DP, welcome to the show. Vibhu Norby (00:27):What's up? Thanks for having me back. Degen Poet (00:30):Hey, thanks so much for having us. Brian Friel (00:32):Vibhu, I mentioned this before recording, but you're a friend of the pod. You're the first official repeat guest of the Zeitgeist, and the last time we had you on was October of last year and you were working on Solana Spaces, which was a really big and audacious project I'd say, and a lot has happened since then and you're still working on big and audacious projects on Solana. Can you walk us through what has changed in the last couple months and what are you working on today? Vibhu Norby (00:56):Good times, good memories. Yeah. What happened in between October and now? What changed? Funnily enough, Drip actually started that same month. We actually started sending NFTs to people starting with Vincenzo in late October. I think we did two drop before Breakpoint. Yeah, things were going fine and then our world got flipped upside down once again by those who must not be named. For a couple months there, I think we were trying to figure out how we were going to continue to operate the stores. Obviously Phantom was a major benefactor of spaces along with Solana Foundation, but they who must not be named were also major sponsors and it was kind of the three pillars of our business and one of them got pulled out. And simultaneously with all of that, Drip was blowing up and changing everything for us internally. Coming into January, every single week we were stacking at 15, 20% week-over-week growth on the list organically. (01:51):And between December 1st and the shutdown of Spaces, our Twitter following more than doubled and all of the new growth were people coming to us for stuff related to Drip. And so I was spending my time going between doing customer service for Drip, talking to artists, and then the store was starting to feel like it was losing its voice a bit kind of naturally in that. Yeah. I mean as much as we loved it for a bunch of different reasons, it just made sense for us to take this traumatic pivot from physical retail stores to free NFTs. I think it was a really good decision. I think one of my best decisions so far in life because since we closed down Spaces, Drip has grown five, six x since then. We've really greatly expanded the product and kind of the vision for it and I think we're making a big impact on Solana and crypto in general. Brian Friel (02:45):You mentioned that this was born out of Solana Spaces originally, it was almost just this separate side thing you were doing and became this absolute beast that had to be unleashed. For those who aren't familiar with what Drip is, can you describe what Drip is, how it operates today, and then maybe talk a little bit about the scale that you guys are currently operating at? Vibhu Norby (03:05):Yeah, sure. Really simple value prop. You sign in with Phantom, you get an invite code and you start getting free collectibles. You can kind of engage with the product as much or as little as you want. By default, you get a free collectible from us every Wednesday and those collectibles are NFTs and they're real on chain Solana NFTs and we commission those pieces from artists and projects, not just now within Solana but across the landscape of crypto. And we pay for the airdrop costs and it's totally free. It's one of the few things in all of our industry that starts at free, ends at free. You don't need any tokens in your wallet, you don't have to go through KYC with an exchange. More recently, a couple months ago in March, we started adding these additional lists that you could subscribe to. Degen Poet was number one, but since then we've added another seven creators and we launched two new streams every Friday. (03:57):Those work the same way. You sign up for an individual creator that you love, can be an artist, could be a brand, could be NFT project, a video creator, influencer. They send you free collectibles on some regular basis and you can collect them, you can trade them, you can hold them, you can brag to your friends about what you got. In terms of growth, we've continued to grow 10, 15% a week even at a very big size now. There's two kind of stats that kind of matter. One is we consider non-fraudulent wallets as many people tried to farm Drip in the past. That number in real time right now is 300,000 and we're sending out at least 300,000 NFTs a week on showcase right now. But in total, every single week across all of our creators now, we're sending well over a million collectibles every single week. This is unbelievable groundbreaking stuff. It's not happening anywhere else in our industry, but people fall in love with Drip every single day. It's been awesome. Brian Friel (04:49):Yeah. I've been a day one subscriber of Drip. I love it. It's such a delightful thing to have all this new art coming in your inbox every day. You kind of hinted at this only possible at Solana, which I want to dive into too. But you did mention there, Degen Poet, and I'd be remiss if we didn't introduce Degen Poet now to the show. I think if you're a listener and you've been around the Solana space, especially on Twitter, you've seen Degen Poet, I'd say one of the most prolific artists on Solana for some time now. Degen Poet, for those who don't know, can you introduce who you are, how you got started on Solana, and then how you also started working with Vibhu? Degen Poet (05:22):I guess I'm Degen Poet. I live in Chicago with my wife and a couple dogs. I got started in Solana in the summer of 2021. I was just basically doing trading and stuff in Bitcoin and then trading all the other coins. I did some leverage trading on CuCoin and then found Solana through the whole Sam Coins DeFi on Solana first. I think Radium was my first stop. That's kind of my first experience with it all. I thought NFTs were garbage and a silly idea and all those things. I had probably been out of poetry for, I don't know, seven or eight years at that point. I did all of my college education and got an MFA in poetry and then just decided that it wasn't a great career path as far as the money you could make and what you had to do to support yourself as a poet is pretty difficult in the real world. (06:16):I gave that up and just kind of did business for a living, did computers, Excel, stuff like that. That's how I kind of made a living and then found Solana through all this. I started buying some stuff on Digitalize. I bought a Solana Monkey, a viking I think pretty early on and papered it way too early. But I think it was at that point where I decided maybe I should try poems as NFTs just because nobody else was doing it. I figured it'd at least be a unique way to try. The first thing I got started on was gmu poems, which was basically an NFT, which was a list of words. And at the time they were going really hot because they were based on this Eth derivative of something called Loot, I think. But I was mad at it because I was like, how is it worth so much money and doing so great? And it's literally just a random list of words, but instead of being mad at it, I decided to kind of embrace it and then just filled in the spaces between the words with poems. (07:11):And I did 200 of those in a month and that's how I got my start on Solana. And then just was making NFTs nonstop ever since, mainly through Exchange Art, doing one of one art. And then over the last year or so since Editions opened up, did additions on exchange art, and then that all just kind of led me to Vibhu and Drip. I really like serving a large audience with art. I mean that was always really fun with Editions. And then with Additions, I wanted to deliver them at a low cost, but that just invites bots to basically come in and flip your stuff. Bots were making way more money than I was off my art just because of the setup, you know what I mean? That's, I think, what intrigued me about Drip is I could achieve this thing that I wanted, which was giving art to all these people on Solana for free basically. And then there's no real bots, everyone's trying to sign up as an individual and gets it airdropped. It's not like a mint. Yeah, I think that's kind of where it all started and how it all made sense for the way that I was distributing my art. Brian Friel (08:12):Yeah, you hit on a lot there. I think that journey of trying out Solana for the first time, this new primordial soup of ecosystem projects and then this totally irrational NFT market, everyone gets dive into it. I think a lot of people can resonate that picture. Vibhu Norby (08:26):Right. I got to interject here because Degen Poet just introduced himself for five minutes and not one time did he mention the word typewriter, which is what he's most famous for of all things is that he didn't say the word typewriter. Brian Friel (08:42):Yeah. Vibhu Norby (08:43):But how did you find a typewriter? Just tell us that quickly. Degen Poet (08:47):Let's see here. I was cleaning out my sister's ex-husband's parents' basement and we found a typewriter when I was in college, and I think I just got really into them at that point because I was doing poetry and stuff and just would smoke tobacco pipes and type on a typewriter pretending I was some guy. I think that's where it all started. And then it picked back up again around Solana or whatever. My wife bought me a typewriter as an anniversary present. That was the first one that I really beat the crap out of for Solana. That's, I guess, what started it. From poems to trying to make something visually more appealing is really what it all clicked with. With NFTs specifically, I started out with just Photoshop and text and I needed some way of making it visually more appealing because that's how you get sales. But that basically took me from a poet to someone who makes art with a typewriter was kind of because people really pretty pictures on NFTs and turns out I like making them. There you go. Brian Friel (09:51):I think Vibhu brings up a great point there. I mean, Degen Poet I think is prolific and well known for having this unique process with a typewriter. If you could expand a little bit on that, Degen Poet, how do you go about creating these collections and is there anything that you do with Drip in particular that is different from either your normal flow or other flows that you know of of NFT artists on Solana? Degen Poet (10:13):Yeah. I mean I guess one of my main things that I've sort of been consistent with are the profile pictures. As a legendary, I'll take an existing Solana profile picture and just kind of do a typewriter version of those. For that process, I basically sketch a version of the profile picture with a pen, and then those were sort of my guides for the typewriter. I've done it freehand on the typewriter before, but you're only exposing a small portion of the paper at a time and it's really hard to get the proportions right. It's helpful to kind of map them out with a pen or marker sketch first. And then I do go through with a detailed typewriter version of it. I try to pull in words or traits or something to do with the NFT as part of the words that make up the image just as a piece of interest if you zoomed in. (11:03):And then I'll print out another copy of that. I'll do another sketch or sometimes I'll just paint on the typewriter piece itself and I'll use oil pastels or watercolor. At the end of the day I'm layering two scans. One of them is basically just the typewriter ink and then another one is this sort of painted version and I layered them on top of each other so you get a colored version of a typewriter piece, and that's kind of how all the profile pictures start. I think that's definitely pretty unique, just using all the physical pieces and really trying to make it all from physical scans versus any sort of digital pieces. And then anything digital is really for animation. Sometimes I'll type out every single frame and I'll make individual frames physically for everything that I'm animating. Other times I'll just cut out a piece of the eye or a piece of a lip or something like that on Photoshop and move it around, save a few different images or change colors or something. I do some Photoshopping to get the pieces animated, which I think just kind of adds another level to it. Typewriter is such an old physical looking thing. And so it's interesting, I think, to see it in an animation style. That's something I've really leveled up with Drip. I feel like I've done way more animations with Drip than any of my art sort of previously. Brian Friel (12:22):You hit a lot there throughout the intro and throughout describing your process, but basically this journey, I think a lot of people resonate with coming to Solana, seeing this fragmented NFT landscape ripe with speculation. That doesn't always make sense, but I think Drip's unique in that it's changing all these models, it's flipping them on their head. Vibhu, can you speak a little bit to who you're working with? Who are these artists that are now reaching out to you? I think you've proven this model with the Degen Poet, but when you talk to artists on Solana, what's attractive to Drip for them? Vibhu Norby (12:54):Yeah. I want to touch on something that you reminded me of, which is that the transition from Spaces to Drip, although on the surface is very jarring, the thing that kind of ties them together was that when we were meeting people in real life trying to introduce them to blockchains, what we found time and time again was that it was the art and the PFPs that were resonating with people in the store. It wasn't all the other stuff. And yet the way that most people have gotten into here is through an exchange where it's all about trading. And so I put this on Twitter many times, but things would be different today and they will be different in the future if the first experience that people have of this amazing technology is art, right? It's la piece from Degen Poet. It just changed everything. What am I looking for in artists?n (13:38):I probably talk to between 20 and 30 artists every single week, artists, projects, creators, and we probably filled about 100 requests per week, I would say right now. We have a really high bar. There's only three slots per week now. There's a showcase and there's two channels. And we book these things out for months in advance. The thing that resonates to me the most is artists that see themselves as more than just putting their pen or their paintbrush on paper, whatever their medium is, but as content creators as well. I think what attracted me to Degen Poet for a long time and I think why people love Degen Poet, yeah, the art is really good and I think that has to be there, but there's a lot of really good art. It's Degen Poet's personality. It's how that comes out in his work. (14:22):It's how he tells a story around his pieces. He publishes videos of the typewriter itself and the creation process. To me, we definitely have an eye for these kind of super artists who are brand building for themselves and have a vision for how to take care of their community in addition. To me, I mean, there's a lot of amazing artists in the world and if you just take blockchain out of it, you can walk into any gallery and see these incredible things. But there's this disconnect between the thing that you're buying and the person that made it and you. And in crypto, it gives this opportunity to cut out that piece and just connect directly with the creator. And if the creator takes advantage of that, that's very attractive to us. That tells me that they're thinking differently about what crypto can add to them. We have a pretty high bar, to be honest. (15:08):I mean I think we could fill up Drip with illustration and other techniques. There's a lot of amazing photographers, but I think at least in the early stages here, we have the opportunity to be curatorial a bit and relentlessly, we've been programming out our new channels trying to bring something different to the table each week. I think if you fast forwarded a year, it's going to be full of the same stuff that Instagram is full of and other big networks, it's just kind of natural. But right now we have an opportunity to keep a vision for what a collectible can kind of be. I don't know. I kind of know when I see it, but that's probably my framework. Brian Friel (15:44):Yeah. You hit on a couple things there with, not just just filling with great art, but the way that this can change the relationship between an artist and their fans. Degen Poet, from your experience, how has working with Drip influenced both the way that people discover your content, but also the relationships that you have with your collectors? Yeah, Degen Poet (16:01):Yeah. I mean it definitely makes it a much wider net, which is nice. They have a larger community to gather around. It feels like everyone who's kind of a channel in Drip is part of a little club or group or something. And so a lot of the same collectors will collect from multiple channels across Drip and things like that. There's more going on than just my art, but it still feels like a piece of a larger community. Everyone's kind of bringing a different style of Drip to the table. It takes less pressure off of my shoulders where I have to have my own Discord or be so focused and all these things. I could do that if I wanted, but I don't have to. Drip is big enough and has enough engagement from the tools that they provide that it helps sustain that better than I could than when I was alone. (16:47):And yeah, I guess you get a lot more people, right. You really do get people who would never have bought my art. And it's not because they didn't like it, they probably couldn't afford it or they didn't really know about it, but they happened to get in through Drip. And so get new people who earnestly really enjoy the art because that's how they found it. They found it from something free, they weren't trying to flip it and that's how they found it. Yeah, I don't know. It definitely casts a wider net and I feel you do boil up more people that just truly enjoy what you do versus the other side. Yeah, that's been great for that. Brian Friel (17:23):Yeah. I want to pause here and just dive into a topic that we mentioned briefly at the start, which is Solana. Degen Poet, you described your journey to finding Solana and I mentioned that I think if anyone's been around crypto Twitter, they know who you are. Prolific typewriter artist of Solana. Vibhu, you've been deeply involved with Solana for over a year and now. Why do you guys plant your flag in Solana, and what about Solana is able to make this a reality where no other blockchain can really do what Drip is doing? Vibhu Norby (17:51):I'm trying to refashion myself a little bit in our narrative because I mean you'll see on our Twitter page and on our site, occasionally we'll talk about Solana, but we've been trying to focus on the collectibles. I mean even with NFTs, I've eliminated using that word on our corporate account entirely in very specific cases. I don't think anybody on the consumer side really cares about that. But from the builder's perspective, two aspects. One is that they pioneered the state compression model, which allows us to do NFTs at a very, very big scale relative to the old version for a very low cost, a couple $100 per million, totally affordable for a business like us. And I think the second thing is that Solana has a really active developer community and some really amazing devs inside of it that are hunting for things to build. (18:35):And it's really competitive too. All the infrastructure around anything new on Solana develops fast. Perfect example of that is Tensor. We went live with it March 22nd, three months ago, and it's certainly been a couple weeks, maybe two or three weeks because they went live with trading on there. And it's an amazing experience and people can trade these compressed NFTs, 200 at a time and there's a brand new kind of thing, right. But it's not just them, there's B Man who built this tool called PopKey, it's Keerel who built the Drip tracker. There's just all these amazing 10X engineers, if you will, itching to be involved and be part of the Solana community. And we feel like anything that we can't get to, someone else is just going to build anyway. And hey, when we're ready, maybe we'll pick it up. Or maybe that tool just kind of develops its own path and we don't have to touch it. (19:28):And that thing is unique to crypto too because all of our NFTs are composable. It just really does. We're kept to such a high bar of development 'cause if we don't reach that bar, then three other companies are going to recreate what we're doing, do it better, and then people also going to just take our content and then do it better on top of our content and our data. I don't know about other chains, maybe they have that too, but I've just observed that Solana is, because of the size of our community and the energy there, seems to attack these things with a lot of vigor that I didn't see, at least in Ethereum when I was first getting into this space. Brian Friel (20:02):No, I couldn't agree more. I think Solana has carved out its own kernel of a genuine dev community. It's a double-edged sword like you say, because it's highly composable and you have this great force everyone will want to build with you, but it invites a lot of competition where if you do slack, there will be people who will take what you do and run with it. But I think so far you guys have done a really great job of really leading in this vertical of Solana. DP, do you have anything to add to what Vibhu said with respect to Solana, maybe from an artist's perspective? Degen Poet (20:31):As far as only possible on Solana, I definitely think it comes down to the compressed NFT. You can't cost effectively drop a million NFTs a week on any other blockchain, not even close to a 1,000X, not even close. I think that's the core of it that allows us to be different on Solana. But then all that other stuff, the unspoken kind of stuff is just the energy of the people here on the chain and the fact that Tensor and all the rest, not only do you have to be able to mint one million NFTs a week for low cost, but you also have to have people that can build stuff to do with them. And that is, I think, an underappreciated aspect of Solana. And I feel like Drip, from my perspective, all we have to do is just kind of continue growing the market for compressed NFTs, continue add channels and add people kind of doing stuff with compressed NFTs and then Solana will provide. As you get bigger and there's more market, more people want something, then Solana starts to make those things happen. I think we'll see that and that will be incredible. Vibhu Norby (21:32):I'm going to flip it back to you, Brian, as well. How is Drip breaking Phantom and what does Phantom need to address? Degen Poet (21:37):Yeah. When can I hold 5,000 NFTs please? Vibhu Norby (21:38):There you go. Brian Friel (21:41):Yeah, no, I would say from a dev perspective at Phantom side, we were early to support compressed NFTs, but it's almost a naive assumption that hey, we ship support and we'll be good because it basically is opening Pandora's box where now people just go wild whenever they're given a new medium to express with this kind of stuff. And we saw it firsthand with Tensor launching their NFT marketplace. We're getting requests, why can't I sign 5,000 transactions at once? You guys can't simulate 5,000 different transactions, but it makes us go back to basically first principles and what is the wallet being used for here? How should we be basically specializing the wallet and what do our users really want this for? And I think, Vibhu, you painted a great story at the start of this where eight months ago, the world was ending for all of Solana, they who should not be named. And in six to eight months, you've gone from that state to completely bootstrapping an organic network with hundreds of thousands of users who love and use this product every day. (22:34):How do we stay adaptable enough for that, huge question and a huge challenge and was really the fun of what's working in this space I think is all about. Vibhu, you mentioned a little bit too on the future of, I think you hinted a year out from now looking like Instagram. Can you say more about that? Vibhu Norby (22:49):Yeah. Depending on the day I wake up and I think about YouTube or Instagram or Twitch or Patreon or Roblox or you name it. There isn't a perfect analogy for this stuff because it kind of is a blend of a lot of different things. I mean literally every single day we're trying to address a problem in our product and we search for some mental model from some other place and see if that kind of makes sense. And not all of it does, but Instagram is such a simple product to talk about because it is a simple product. Everybody, not just creators, but normal people post photos to their feed or stories and then you follow their friends and you follow the celebrities or influencer, whatever that you like and that stuff shows up in your feed. And you think nothing of it. Okay, I go about my day, I open the app, I click something and I'm good, I'm happy, I close it. (23:43):But what's sitting underneath of Instagram is this advertising industrial complex that is calculating an enormous amount of data for every single thing that you do on the app. You open the story, how long did you open the story for? How many people are you connected to that also did the same thing? They're building profiles. I used to work on this stuff. I know this is what we do. Yeah, there's a reason for it. I don't think it's bad. I don't think advertising is bad. I want to put that out there. I know Anatolia thinks it's evil and it's part of the reason why he talks about Solana as the anti-spam control network, but it is good for small businesses, but the group that gets abused in that situation are the users and the creators that actually use the app. You go talk to any creator on any network that's not on the top 1% and they're making almost no money from these things. (24:33):We have an artist that's launching tomorrow called Bangers. He has 200,000 on Instagram. He has three and a half billion views of her content on Giffy. 'Cause she makes all these animated gifs and she told me that she made $20 from Giffy and almost nothing from Instagram ever. I mean we just don't think about it. But people build their livelihoods and businesses on these social platforms and increasingly so. I mean young people today, you ask them what they want to be when they grow up, it's not a firefighter. They want to be content creators, they want to be YouTubers, they want to be TikTokers, literally what they want to do. But when we examine these platforms and how they treat all of the kind of participants in that ecosystem, you just see this thing where all the power and all the money is aggregating inside of these couple of companies, ByteDance with TikTok, Facebook, Google, Amazon. (25:28):The trifecta of these trillion-dollar companies. Where I want to take Drip is, hey, let's take that model that we know people because people like to just follow someone and see their content, but let's start to tweak the internal economics of each of these components and do it in a way that over the next couple years, creators can make more money from this stuff. Even users might be able to make money, which is a very new concept, but it's something that is normal in crypto and just not normal in Web 2.0. If we can successfully build a model that's better, there's no reason why creators won't come over, it's just an awareness thing. Can we get the word out and can we make this easy to use and safe? I don't know if that's Instagram or it's YouTube or whatever. Instagram is the easiest thing to talk about. I think Drip is a really big idea. I hope that there's many other entrepreneurs that are looking at what we're doing and thinking, hey, maybe this kind of thing could apply in other categories too, and together we can come after these conglomerates, give the power back to the people and that would be a beautiful thing. Brian Friel (26:31):I couldn't agree more. Degen Poet, when you hear that and you take into consideration everything you told us about your journey starting on these fragmented marketplaces and everything and now everything that you've been doing with Drip, how do you think your relationship with Drip will evolve? Do you foresee the majority of your art being now distributed via platforms like these versus traditional mediums? Degen Poet (26:52):Yeah, for sure. Solana NFTs in the first place gave me a place for my art. I tried to be a poet in the real world and didn't really see the value in it even to publish a book and to get nothing back and to spend all the money to publish it, that kind of thing. Just NFTs and Solana in general as a first step was incredible to me to be able to make any kind of money off of my art period. And then that is what led me to become an artist. I wasn't making pictures or whatever before this, so it allowed me to exist as an artist in the first place. And then I guess I got hungry for the idea that you could live off this as a career or something. For me, I guess, I just want to create a space where people after me, people around me can do this seriously as 50% or more of their income for their lives. (27:45):I guess that's what I want to continue to push on at Drip, things like donations, et cetera, but finding a way to make them work and have them be something on a consistent basis that again, another artist can use that model and create a source of income that's reasonably dependable. A weekly Drip of donations I think is way more sustainable and understandable than when you're going to sell in your next auction. You sort of have a steady growth than all the rest of it. And so I don't know, it's just a better model to actually build a true career off of. Yeah, I don't know. For me, continue to find ways to take advantage of Drip and put all my work there that makes sense. I still have some one-on-ones outside of Drip, but I might even incorporate those into Drip someday. Yeah. I mean for me, as long as they let me Drip, I'm dripping. As long as the door is open for me, that's what I'm going to do for sure. Yeah. Vibhu Norby (28:43):Degen Poet is actually more close to the prototypical Solana artist than you would think. When I'm talking to an artist, I always ask, what's your full-time job? Very few of them are artists full-time. I mean that is really uncommon and it's really hard to make a living that way. Most of the artists that we work with are graphic designers and they make websites for clients and they're being creative maybe in some other way, but it isn't their source of income. And I don't think that if you look at this generation that wants to be content creators, that all of them can be content creators and make a living. Someone has to put food on the table, right. But you can add a little bit of extra for some of these folks and for the top 1% of them, or top 5% or top 10% of them to be able to make a reasonable living from doing this, I think is possible. (29:33):And my gold star metric for, I'm going to use Degen poet as our test baby, is how close can we get to replacing the income from his W2 job over the next year? We're actually not that far away. We're making progress and we continue to tweak that and it will pay back dividends. If he can be full-time on this and he'll be able to have, I don't know how he has a full-time job already. That part's a mystery to me, but in theory, more art, more content, more delight for people, that will help us grow too. DP and I are very aligned on that as a kind of a side quest to just getting art into people's hands. Brian Friel (30:08):Yeah. I think that's a great first goal. When you guys think about how we get to a world where the Degen Poets of the world can do this full time no questions asked, it's like an afterthought to even consider another job. Are there anything that you think that we need to change as an industry, something we should stop doing? And I ask this question because last time we had you on the show, Vibhu, you had a couple hot takes that you dropped, mostly around how a number grow up is very bad for the industry. I want to ask, has that thinking evolved at all for you, Vibhu? And then I also later want to hear some Degen Poet has any ideas on that as well. Vibhu Norby (30:41):I'm still on the same train. Number go up, number go down both equally bad in many different ways. The only thing is I really feel it when if you're sitting on Twitter all day, you really feel the price. You don't even have to look at the tweets. When Bitcoin was over 30K yesterday, I felt it. I didn't even have to look at my app. When Solana's down, you feel it. For better or for worse, the audience there is highly effective. And so I can't help but be empathetic to it, but it's actually an imperative for our industry to survive, especially in the US for us to move past the tokens, we have to. I strongly feel that, this is going to offend some people. I'm just trying to be careful how I say this. I think that the OG crypto community who was here in 2015 to 2017, the ICO era and these people are holding our industry back in a lot of ways. (31:37):I think they're all over our biggest applications and our biggest exchanges and this and that. And I think somewhere in the back of all these folks heads, they can't get over the fact that the bull market's going to come back again and they're going to have a Lambo. And it just doesn't make sense if we're serious about this being in the hands of billions of people, sorry, we can't make a Lambo for all seven, eight billion people on earth. Some of us have to drive a Honda Civic, some of us have to drive a bike. Can we get bike money for everybody? Can we get there first and let go of the kind of grasp of all the token people? That's where I'm at. I could be wrong. Maybe I'm flawed, maybe everyone can have a Lambo. I would love one, but that's not where I see the future. Degen Poet (32:20):Yeah. I mean I guess I feel similarly. I guess you want to create a space in the blockchain where the number go up and down doesn't really affect your day to day of enjoyment. You don't think about the price of a t-shirt or a box of Legos or whatever it is going up and down. You still just consume them because you want it or you like it here and there. I think of the Pokemon card analogy when it comes to this. I think with Drip House where they're just cards in general. I think there's a space for the legendaries or whatever it is, smaller supplies, having numbers go up. I do think that creates a lot of fun and excitement, brings people on, all that, but it really needs to be balanced with the day to day. Your reason for being here can't be that, because if it is, then it's like yeah, it doesn't feel sustainable and you're just building a system where there's a small amount of winners and most people are losers. And so it's like what are you really doing for the world at that point? We need to find a way to create value for digital assets that's just inherent in whatever the object is. It's not because of a price or a speculation, it's just because you value whatever the thing is. Brian Friel (33:31):Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I think you guys are on the right path here and I think a lot of people who use Drip every day are resonating with what you guys are doing. Well, guys, this has been a really awesome conversation. One question we always ask our guests, I'd love to hear this from each of you, maybe starting with Degen Poet, is who is a fellow builder that you admire in the Solana ecosystem? Degen Poet (33:52):I really like the Foxes a lot. I like drags and I like the Foxy Dev. I think that they've done an awesome job of trying to find actually useful stuff that people could use on Solana and bringing it into their system and I've seen them do some stuff overnight for people and all the rest of it. Really like them. Really like the guys at Tenor too. I mean the stuff that they've done for us in compressed NFTs is pretty incredible. Everyone on those teams is great. Brian Friel (34:21):I agree. Vibhu. Vibhu Norby (34:22):I'm going to recall 'cause I'm a second time guest, the answers I gave last time, 'cause it's kind of funny in retrospect. I think I mentioned Ahkshe from Super Team who I would give again and again. He's been such an amazing supporter of me and Drip and places before that. And I think at the time I also gave Frank Deca as my other answer. I still have a soft spot for him. I know he left Solana, but I can't help but admire the fanatical community building that he has. But yeah, I mean today, the couple of people that came to mind for me were, yeah, I mean the Tensor guys are amazing. These guys are just... A hilarious story. I pinged Ilia, the founder, yesterday and I asked them, hey, can I have a vector version of your logo? And I kid you'd not. The second I typed that, I see Ilia is typing and then three seconds later the vector file was there and I was like, did you just have this sitting on your desktop ready to drop into this? Brian Friel (35:15):Copied on the clipboard already? Yeah. Vibhu Norby (35:17):They really don't like that. Just really responsive. I respect that a lot. I want to give a shout-out to a guy named Carol who I won't dox him. He's a really impressive guy in real life and I got to know that after I spoke to him. There's these people in our community that are anonymous. I think he's an OK Bear or whatever, maybe a monkey business, and you find out their real life and they're like some VP of some big company. You just never know who you're talking to. But he's been, both for Drip and for Dialect, who I also listed as my admiration for, he's just been building stuff for free that benefit our communities and hundreds of thousands of people use those tools every single week to track their Drip collection. He's KIRYL_SOL, I believe he is his Twitter handle. Yeah, huge ups to that guy for carrying collectibles into the future. Brian Friel (36:06):I love it. These are all future guests of the podcast we're naming here. We have to get these guys on, have them tell their story as well. But yeah, Vibhu, Degen Poet, I just want to thank you guys from the Phantom team. We love everything that you guys are up to. We really think that Drip House arose at a time when Solana needed it most. We think you guys really carry a light forward for a way that pioneer's a new model for art on Solana, for artists making a living. Really excited for everything that you guys have to come. Thank you so much for your time on Zeitgeist. Degen Poet (36:33):Thanks for having us. Vibhu Norby (36:34):Thanks. Bye.
I talk about past video games that use large swathes of emptiness in their design and how it contributes to an almost meditative emotional quality that is lacking from current mainstream games whose design philosophy instead emphasizes massive amounts of content. Games mentioned include: The Wind Waker, Dark Souls, Kingdom Hearts, Penn and Teller's Desert Bus, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.~~~Support Haus of Decline on Patreon!Visit hausofdecline.comNostalgia is fleeting,but @hausofdecline is foreverPlease email complaints, suggestions, or requests to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for listening.Explicit Content Warning.

Ao lermos este capítulo, vemos que o sobrinho de Abraão, Ló, que antes era conhecido por ser um dos escolhidos para testemunhar as promessas e os milagres de Deus na vida de seu tio, e por consequência na sua própria vida, agora, estava seguindo seu próprio caminho e tomando suas próprias escolhas, muitas delas, senão todas, sem a direção de Deus. Gostaria de chamar a atenção para o primeiro verso do capítulo, que diz assim: E vieram os dois anjos a Sodoma à tarde, e estava Ló assentado à porta de Sodoma; e, vendo- os Ló, levantou-se e inclinou-se com o rosto à terra. Ló imediatamente reconheceu a presença dos anjos de Deus, coisa que uma pessoa que não tivesse uma vivência com Deus reconheceria facilmente, mostrando que ele era uma pessoa que tentava servir a Deus, mas não da forma como Deus gostaria e sim segundo o que ele achava que era melhor para ele e sua família. Quantos de nós estamos na casa de Deus, na presença de Deus, às vezes por anos, inclusive, e nós nos acostumamos tanto com a vida que levamos diante de Deus, que as coisas acabam caindo na “normalidade”, ao invés de sempre seguir as orientações de Deus e levarmos as coisas de Deus mais a sério, pois tudo o que apresentamos a Deus é provado pelo fogo. (I Co. 3: 11-14) 11 Porque ninguém pode por outro fundamento, além do que já está posto, o qual é Jesus Cristo. 12 E, se alguém sobre este fundamento formar um edifício de ouro, prata, pedras preciosas, madeira, feno, palha, 13 a obra de cada um se manifestará; na verdade, o Dia a declarará, porque pelo fogo será descoberta; e o fogo provará qual seja a obra de cada um. 14 Se a obra que alguém edificou nessa parte permanecer, esse receberá galardão. Podemos perceber que as obras de Ló foram provadas pelo fogo, e foram reprovadas diante de Deus, mas ele foi salvo e esta salvação aconteceu na vida dele, não por mérito dele ou porque estava servindo bem ao Senhor, mas porque alguém havia intercedido por ele, mesmo sabendo que ele estava se distanciando subconscientemente da presença e da vontade de Deus. Como é bom saber que alguém orou pela gente não é mesmo? Eu tenho certeza que mesmo que você não saiba, alguém orou pela sua salvação, pela sua cura e pela sua libertação. Deus foi misericordioso conosco e também será para toda a sua família porque sei que você também está orando por eles! E sobre as ações de Ló, quero deixar um alerta: que está escrito em (Hebreus12:1) Portanto, nós também, pois, que estamos rodeados de uma tão grande nuvem de testemunhas, deixemos todo embaraço e o pecado que tão de perto nos rodeia e corramos, com paciência, a carreira que nos está proposta, Este texto diz que temos que ser prudentes e estar vigilantes a todo o momento e em todos os lugares, em casa, no trabalho, na escola e na igreja, pois a bíblia é clara em falar que o pecado nos rodeia “de perto” e não de longe e diante destas situações, nós devemos correr! Ló ao receber a notícia de que a cidade seria destruída, ficou “enrolando”, ou seja, ficou demorando a sair com a sua família, não teve uma postura de autoridade da casa ao lermos os (vs. 15 -16) 15 E, ao amanhecer, os anjos apertaram com Ló, dizendo: Levanta-te, toma tua mulher e tuas duas filhas que aqui estão, para que não pereças na injustiça desta cidade. 16 Ele, porém, demorava-se, e aqueles varões lhe pegaram pela mão, e pela mão de sua mulher, e pela mão de suas duas filhas, sendo-lhe o Senhor misericordioso, e tiraram-no, e puseram-no fora da cidade. Mesmo Ló não tendo esta postura de autoridade como servo do Deus vivo, podemos ver aqui, a confirmação do que eu disse anteriormente: Deus sendo misericordioso, por amor a Abraão e pela intercessão que ele havia feito no capítulo anterior. Jamais subestime o poder de uma intercessão, ela realmente move a mão de Deus.
Hosts: Ansel Lindner and Christian Keroles Watch this Episode: YouTube || Rumble Fed Watch is a macro podcast with a clear contrarian thesis of a deflationary breakdown of the financial system leading to bitcoin adoption. We question narratives and schools of thought, and try to form new understanding. Each episode we use current events to question mainstream and bitcoin narratives across the globe, with an emphasis on central banks and currencies. Find all charts and links at bitcoinandmarkets.com/fed150 In this episode, Nolan and I discuss all the big news items of the week having to do with central banks and bitcoin. Blackrock's Bitcoin ETF chances are still top of the list in Bitcoin news. We watch a couple clips of guys who know what they are talking about, Elliot Johnson of EBIT and James Seyffart of Bloomberg. Everything is aligning. Next, we discussion MicroStategy (MSTR) and their recent bitcoin buy, then get into the North Carolina bill to study adding Bitcoin to their State balance sheet. We take a look at some bitcoin charts, all pressing up on resistance, looking very bullish. Lastly, we tackle the CBDC debate. The BIS report we covered last week has been the driver of a lot of CBDC speculation this week. On twitter, I tried to debunk it and triggered George Gammon. Bottom line is CBDCs are not going to become a global "unified ledger." All their claims and rhetoric is reminiscent of the ICO white papers circa 2016. In the whole BIS paper they didn't mention "consensus" once, which is a pretty big deal if you talking about a global, cross-border, sovereignty limiting, ledger. This shows that they are just writing down fantasies like all those ICOs that came before. None of what the BIS proposes is actually viable. Thanks for joining us!

Saudações, ouvintes apaixonados por locução. Está NO AR o 70º podcast VOZ OFF! Este episódio é um ESPECIAL da série de podcasts Voz Off. Antônio Viviani e Nicola Lauletta vão homenagear mais uma grande voz do rádio, da TV e do cinema! Nascido em Niterói - RJ, começou sua carreira ao microfone nos Estados Unidos, para onde havia se mudado para cursar química, após ganhar a viagem em um concurso. Passou dificuldades nos primeiros tempos nos EUA, e já estava desistindo do curso de química quando viu um anúncio procurando locutores e resolveu tentar a sorte - e ela sorriu para ele! Fez narrações memoráveis para a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer e para a Fox Films, trabalhou na Voz da América entre outras, e pode ser considerado um dos maiores expoentes - senão o maior - da locução brasileira! Foi até narrador dos Estúdios Disney e era amigo pessoal de Walt Disney! Quem nos contou essas e muitas outras histórias foi Rodrigo, filho de Ramos Calhelha, nosso homenageado neste podcast #070 ESPECIAL! A conversa com Rodrigo Calhelha aconteceu em 18 de maio de 2023, dia em que Ramos estaria completando 104 anos se estivesse vivo. Tivemos também a participação de Julio Franco - que teve um breve convívio com o Ramos - e temos que citar um outro amigo dele: Décio Montagnini - o Ico - que não esteve na entrevista mas procurou anteriormente o Antônio Viviani e entregou um vasto acervo de gravações inéditas, fato que nos levou a produzir esse fantástico episódio!

La agricultura intensiva es la principal causa de la desaparición de aves en Europa, por delante incluso del cambio climático. Revela que las poblaciones de aves en Europa han caído de media un 25% los últimos 40 años. Un dato que casi alcanza el 60% si miramos las especies típicas de zonas agrícolas, sobre todo en los países de Europa occidental. La causa: los monocultivos y el uso de fertilizantes y pesticidas porque eliminan insectos, invertebrados y plantas, que son la base de su alimentación y refugio. Estos productos también contaminan las semillas y, si los pájaros las ingieren, las sustancias tóxicas se van acumulando en su organismo y pueden llegar a provocarles la muerte.La investigación ha observado 178 especies en más de 20 mil lugares de 28 países europeos durante 37 años. Han participado investigadores del CREAF, el ICO y el CSIC, liderados por la Universidad de Montepellier. Los resultados arrojan la certeza de que no se trata de un problema local. Los efectos perjudiciales de grandes cultivos, fertilizantes y pesticidas se extienden en toda Europa. Por lo que la comunidad científica pide acelerar la regulación de las prácticas agrícolas e implementar modelos más sostenibles.Escuchar audio
Guest: Karl Jackson Welcome back to another Undeniable episode of the Undeniable Level Up Podcast. With you host, Jose Medina and Crystal Garcia. And today we are here to talk about Demystifying Digital Dough. What is this thing called Crypto. Wow, that rhymed didn't it! For some of our listeners who follow our professional development and self improvement discussions, you may be asking how discussion of Cryptocurrency is a relevant topic for us to discuss and to those listeners. I would say, financial health is one of the 8 wellness categories. And with everything that's going on with the dollar and Russia's and China's plan to move away from the Dollar Dollar Dollar Bill Yall, I think there is no better time to discuss Crypto than now. Now, I have some friends and associates who purport to understand Crypto and I'll be honest, I have a Crypto wallet with a little bit of Cryptocurrency, but I'd be lying if I told you that I totally understand everything about crypto. I know how to invest in it, but I have no idea how to spend it. If you're like me, then you have a lot of questions too. And here to help us demystify this Mystifying mullah is none other than Crypto Expert Karl Jackson. Hi Karl, and thank you for joining us on today's show to discuss the ins and out of Cryptocurrency. Jose and I met Karl about 1.5 years ago when he was working as a Tax Attorney. This guy is a Tax Wizard of the highest order, a financial genius and business structure master. And now a Cryptocurrency Colossus! Marc Kenigberg, the Founder fo BitcoinChaser says "Blockchain is the tech. Bitcoin is merely the first mainstream manifestation of its potential." Q: Do you agree with Marc? Are we still at the beginning of what Crypto will be? Where do you see Crypto in the next 5 years? This quote highlights the importance of understanding that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are just the beginning of what blockchain technology can achieve. The potential applications of blockchain technology go far beyond digital currencies and could have a transformative effect on various industries. Q: How do you think the underlying blockchain technology will continue to evolve, and what impact will this have on the cryptocurrency landscape? Q: Can you discuss the potential for decentralized finance (DeFi) to disrupt traditional banking and financial systems? What are the key advantages and challenges of DeFi? Q: What role do you see cryptocurrencies playing in the global economy, particularly in developing countries where access to traditional banking infrastructure might be limited? Satoshi Makamoto, the mysterious and pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin stated that, "The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that's required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust." This quote from the inventor of Bitcoin emphasizes the fundamental issue that cryptocurrencies aim to address – the trust required for traditional financial systems to function. By leveraging blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies aim to provide a more secure, transparent, and decentralized alternative to conventional currencies. Q: How do you think regulators and governments will respond to the growing influence of cryptocurrencies, and what effect will this have on the industry's future? Q: Security has always been a concern in the crypto space, with numerous high-profile hacks and breaches. How can individuals and businesses best protect their digital assets? Q: What are your thoughts on the increasing popularity of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and their potential impact on various industries, including art, gaming, and intellectual property? Adam Draper, founder of Boost VC. Said, "The blockchain does one thing: It replaces third-party trust with a mathematical proof that something happened." Adam Draper's quote succinctly captures the essence of what blockchain technology offers – a decentralized, trustless system that relies on mathematical proofs and cryptography to ensure security and transparency. This shift from relying on third parties to mathematical proofs has the potential to revolutionize various aspects of our lives, from finance to supply chain management. Q: Scalability has been a long-standing challenge for many cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin and Ethereum. How do you envision this issue being addressed in the future? Q: How do you see the relationship between centralized and decentralized exchanges evolving, and what does this mean for the accessibility and security of digital assets? Q: In your opinion, what are the most promising use cases for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology beyond finance and investment? CTAIf you've been thinking about investing in Crypto, but the mysticism and newness of the digitally currency has kept you hesitant, then today's topic should have given you some much needed insight and education and a strong starting point. This is call to action is for those of you have interest, but just don't really know where to begin your journey and experience with Crypto.

Do you have any advice for our listeners as they they getter ready to dip their toes into the dark waters fo Cryptocurrency? We look forward to having you back in the future to talk learn more about Crypto, taxes and business structures among other topics that you have expert knowledge on. Thank you again. The world is changing. 30 years again computers were the size of a room and cell phones had to be carried in bag the size of a brief case. Today, our phones are damn near super computers and fit in a pocket. Everything we do is connected digitally in one way or another. Crypto is here. It is better to get educated on it and learn it so that you're not left behind when it becomes necessary to own it, have it and use it. Spend the time now, dabbling and learning the ins and outs and becoming familiar with Crypto and the different coins. Knowledge is always the key to success. It's time to level up your financial acumen, to begin building the foundation of knowledge on Crypto to keep you ahead of the pack. Ignorance is NOT bliss. Ignoring Crypto won't make it irrelevant. Find time to educate yourself, and move into the future with confidence and understanding. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Like a lot of people, Orlando thought crypto was pretty much just internet money for people looking to do illegal things online. The 2017 ICO boom piqued his curiosity a little, but it wasn't until 2020 with the increased interest in DeFi that Orlando started to really pay attention and had his light bulb moment and realized that crypto and web3 are actually revolutionary.The innovative and disruptive nature of crypto and DeFi naturally bring about questions of legality and consumer protection, there is perhaps no one better positioned to navigate these dense but important conversations than Orlando. With his background as a startup and VC lawyer, securities and government enforcement litigator, and trader, Orlando's knowledge is second to none, but it's his innate aptitude for breaking down complex concepts and figuring out the way forward that makes the Lexproof founder and CEO a leading voice of reason in the space.What we unraveled —7:00 - What helped Orlando to see crypto was far more than sketchy internet money, and held incredible possibility for changing the world11:59 - Orlando's diverse career journey and what prompted him to take the plunge from being a lawyer to founding his own crypto startup18:58 - Orlando breaks down the concept, practical applications and conflicts that arise with DeFi (decentralized finance)22:16 - Orlando's take on the US Treasury's assessment of crypto, why a significant number DeFi applications aren't truly decentralized and how that relates to criminal actions in relation to KYC laws36:42 - What the future of DeFi looks like in light of the KYC, and what Orlando sees as the best path forward to prevent money laundering while still allowing innovation in the space to move forward 43:03 - The proposed SEC rule changes for communications protocols, what it means for crypto, and how it's related to free speech51:23 - Orlando's company Lexproof does how they help businesses navigate compliance infrastructure52:21 - Zero Knowledge technology, how it relates to NFTs, and why it's used for privacy as well as scalability57:06 - Orlando's take on AI and the impact it will haveUnravel Further —Links Mentioned in this Episode -Lex ProofHelium Orlando's DeFi Breakdown on Twitter Listen Next - CBDCs, the Banking Crisis, and Being a Leading Voice in Crypto with Thinking Crypto Host, Tony Edward (Ep. 19)More of Orlando -Orlando is the founder & CEO of Lexproof, a startup building web3 native compliance infrastructure.

Podcasts that are once lost cannot be reclaimed. Welcome to the very first (kind of) NOCLIP Epilogue! On this series, that we'll come back to every once in a while, we're going to be revising some of our earliest episodes to rehash our discussions but with more media literacy and higher quality audio. For our first formal entry in the series (not counting Undertale, which we did as a primer to the Deltarune series, which, you know, we'll get back to at some point), we're going to be covering Shadow of the Colossus, which was our second ever episode. Shadow, in case you're somehow unaware, is the second game from Team Ico, and is loosely set in the same universe and has a similar visual and mood to Ico. There is a dour atmosphere over the whole game, with a plot centering around a character attempting to revive a dead woman, a mysterious masked man and his cadre of knights and a Godlike figure named Dormin who promises to help with the resurrection if we do a task for him. There's an air of mystery around the entire process, from what you're doing to the plot itself and even who the characters are, and this lack of certainty cements the atmosphere of the game as well as keeps the player on the hunt for clues, making the whole experience more intellectually stimulating in addition to its mechanical challenges. As for what you actually do, Shadow tasks you with taking down 16 enormous boss creatures by physically climbing all over them and attacking weak points. Your player character controls in what feels like a very fragile and imprecise way, making this task feel difficult and imposing. There's a lot more to say about how the game mixes its themes and its mechanics, but that should be the gist if you aren't already a fan, so listen to us unpack the rest of it in today's episode. We're going to be talking about the way everything from the world to your horse contributes to the overall themes of the game, we talk about the pacing of the game and its ambitions versus the game we really got, and we speculate on what Mono's last will and testament probably had in it. Thank you for joining us again this week, and for indulging us this nostalgic look back at one of our favorite games we covered. Hopefully the epilogue series continues to do what we intended, as I feel like even this shorter episode gets across what makes the game good better than we were able to do seven, almost eight, years ago. What did you think about this episode format? Do you have suggestions for other games we covered in the long-long ago for us to take another look at? Let us know over in our Discord or in the comments! Next time, we're doing our first Mystery May pocket episode, which is a different style to previous years, and through a series of events that are unfortunate, we ended up being forced to do an immediate epilogue follow up on the worst game we've ever covered (debatably) in Rascal for the Playstation, so if you enjoy when we suffer, please join us then.
This week's DeFi Download Podcast features Juan-David Mendieta, co-founder of Keyrock. Piers Ridyard and Juan-David discuss Keyrock's market-making services and the potential of DeFi to create a more equitable and accessible financial system.SummaryKeyrock is a market maker that facilitates the adoption of tokenized economies. It trades on over 85 exchanges and in 500 markets, with a trading volume of billions of dollars. Juan David Mendieta is Keyrock's co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer.Key takeawaysJuan-David questions the traditional economic model and how it relates to Bitcoin, suggesting that Bitcoin could be a viable alternative to the traditional economic model.Piers and Juan-David discuss the differences between a store of value and fiat currency, as well as the impact of a deflationary asset such as Bitcoin on debt and interest rates.Because rising asset values might result in higher interest rates, the deflationary nature of Bitcoin can have an impact on debt.Juan-David suggests that in the future, we could live in a world where all value is held in digital assets, and we would no longer need a separate exchange asset. He uses an example of headphones with an NFT (non-fungible token) to illustrate how this could work.Chapters[01:14] The source of Juan-David's passion for cryptocurrency[02:51] The unique perspective of a central banker on Bitcoin's potential value[05:30] Differences between fiat currency and store of value: impact on debt and interest rates in a Bitcoin-based hard money system[08:55] Piers' thoughts on Juan-David's thesis that all value can be held in digital assets without the need for a separate exchange asset and blockchain's potential to facilitate value exchange with a time component[12:55] Piers and Juan-David discuss a universal method for exchanging cryptocurrency, mentioning Bancor's ICO and expressing admiration for Carbon, an AMM developed by Bancor DAO contributors.[14:35] Juan-David's idea that everything has a value and can be traded for everything else — Keyrock's role and thoughts on the current and future importance of token liquidity and market making[19:37] The differences between market making and the Uniswap model — When should a project move from a bootstrap liquidity model to a market maker?[25:54] The Keyrock DeFi team and its unique approach to market making, focusing on both centralised and decentralised exchanges[28:48] The Keyrock team's research findings on up-and-coming DeFi companies, specifically GMX [32:52] The GMX protocol for advanced capital providers allows for selective positioning and efficient price discovery.[35:13] Upcoming developments in the DeFi space, such as Carbon[37:41] The potential of derivatives on decentralised exchanges: incorporating pricing models into derivatives[41:43] How projects looking for a market maker can get in touch with KeyrockFurther resourcesWebsite: keyrock.eu Twitter: @KeyrockTradingJuan-David's Twitter: @JuanDMendietaLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/keyrock/

This week, we discuss a cyber attack on the outsourcing giant Capita, Italy's ban on OpenAI's ChatGPT chatbot and further bad news for TikTok: a £12.7 million fine from the ICO for breaching UK data protection law.
Veronica Wong, CEO & Co-Founder of SafePal, joins host Lloyd Wahed to speak on building a company right from the ICO boom of 2017, across two bull/bear market cycles, and into the bumpy start of 2023. Despite the macroeconomic challenges in their way, Veronica and SafePal have worked to put themselves in a position to achieve their long-term goal of onboarding a billion users into Web3. This is truly an eye-opening episode, with much to learn from an inspiring leader. From an environment surrounded by people who taught her to ask questions throughout childhood, a windy winter dinner that was the catalyst to building a successful scale-up over the last five years, to the balance of responsibility when being seen as a leader in the community - there are countless lessons in this discussion.

We have finally arrived at our final game of 2001: A Game Odyssey and we're going out with a bang. Ico gave one of Sony's most legendary development studios its name and provided Fumito Ueda with a massive boost to his budding career in the game industry. Depending on who you ask Ico is either the overshadowed little brother of Shadow of Colossus, or the cliché video game hipster opportunity to say "I liked it before they were cool." Either way, it's a legendary game with aspects of its design found in many games that have followed it.
