Summary

The MetaZone team consisting of Corv, William and Iman come together to discuss progress on MetaZone and the entire NFT space. We make grand predictions that almost every NFT minting platform will have their own platform token to incentivize activity on their own platform. We believe in helping landowners monetize their land in a way that is sustainable while growing the value of the land in Decentraland. Ethermon has built the next meta that will allow landowners to make 20% from every sale of eggs on their land. Each egg hatches an Ethermon NFT that is able to grow and gain levels in Decentraland. We also contemplate a proper tokenomics strategy for MetaZone that will properly reward users for their activity on MetaZone. Finally we breakdown why sidechains will become a standard in the crypto industry.

Summary

On the heels of a topic Iman and William have been talking about for at least a few months, our predictions begin to show accuracy. Rarible is the first large NFT minting platform to reward the behavior they want to encourage. They released the $RARI token and airdropped it to creators and collectors with 75,000 tokens sent out weekly by participating on the platform. We explore how this will ignite a DeFi style explosion of NFT platforms. We predict the proliferation of this tactic as this is something that would be helpful in MetaZone. Not only do we think a token platform makes sense for MetaZone, but we believe generating tokens and other cryptographic assets for the underlying game itself will help increase user adoption and overall sustainability within the ecosystem.

Summary

Today we speak with Zach Burks, CEO of Mintable. We get a break down of how Zach got involved in NFTs and what brought the development of Mintable. The Mintable platform is both on the Ethereum and Zilliqa blockchain so we get a first hand look at the benefits of each platform. The DeFi ecosystem is beginning to explode which will bring millions of brand new users into the crypto space. One of the more important focus is to improve the on-boarding experience. We discuss the possibility of NFT projects launching an ERC20 token to tap into the speculative mania. What will be the implications and is it a good thing for the NFT ecosystem?

Summary

On today's podcast we speak with David Liebowitz, a founding team member of Everipedia platform of decentralized knowledge base. We go into the decision making process when making the decision between using the Ethereum network or the EOS network. We drill down into EOS and discuss the CPU and RAM tokens to be able to use and access the EOS network and use dApps built on it. DeFi is quickly propagating to the collective crypto conscience and we get David's thoughts on the the current explosion. Prediction markets are also on an upward trend and Everipedia using the PredIQt token is gaining traction.

Summary

If you haven't been paying attention to what types of projects most of the volume is going towards, you might be missing what could cause a trillion dollar crypto market. With several billions locked up in the DeFi ecosystem, this sector of the crypto space is on its way of catapulting the general industry into the trillion dollar range. We begin the discussion with how we predicted that DeFi would fuel the next exponential expansion of the crypto industry in late 2019.

Summary

With the sudden pump in Mana, you would think this would be a good thing. We go into the inside details of running a business thats based completely in cryptocurrency and the ramifications of volatile pricing. Decisions need to be made and consequences are felt. How does a small business adjust to unpredictable pricing? How do we build a platform that many creators use and depend on that is reliable. Cultivating a platform with razor thin margin of error keeps us awake at night, maybe the community can provide some input here with some suggestions. In addition, we explore expanding MetaZone's offering to encompass the larger game development community.
