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 today's podcast we interview the CEO of Liquidity.Network to discuss GAS fees and solutions to the scalability problem. Arthur Gervais breaks down how Ethereum has a bottle neck and how many other blockchains suffer from the same inherent problem. Arthur helps understand why Ethereum can only handle a handful of transactions per second. What are the implications of a sidechain versus an off chain transaction. He also explains how Liquidity Network is able to achieve gasless transactions and what it could do for dapp developers like us. The onbaording process is an important aspect to get correct and we get into the details on how that works for any developer looking to reduce gas fees. Finally, we ask what its like to develop in both bull and bear markets and the differences between each.

Summary

We debrief from last week's discussion on how the stock market is in a huge bubble. Except the next day after recording our previous podcast, Bitcoin takes off and reaches the 2020 all time high. So this week we discuss if the possibility of Bitcoin becoming a true store of value during these uncertain times becomes a reality. Open world gaming always have a common thread in the grind mechanism. We discuss how and why this mechanism is needed in Decentraland and ways it could occur. One of the many ways is implementing consumables through ERC1155 NFTs. These tokens can serve to kickstart an economy within a game world and necessary to improve the daily active users. Finally, conspiracy theories are mostly a commentary on how fragile the human mind can be.

Summary

2020 has been a record year in many fronts. One of the more unescapable aspects staring us in the face is our diminishing economic model. The United States is pumping trillions of dollars into the economy and we wonder the impact of this diminishing effects on Bitcoin. Is a doom scenario necessary to catapult the value of Bitcoin? We also discuss the outcome of the Crypto World Cup as well as the Decentraland announcement that they're partnering with Samsung crypto wallet. Major Corona Zombies updates with some additional gameplay. Ethermon digital pet game launced an event and has had over 420 unique addresses participate!

Summary

Right off the heels of the biggest competition in Decentraland, a soccer tournament with 24 crypto companies face off on Moonshot! Iman has been commentating while the rest of the team has been preparing and competing in the tournament. We also discover a pattern we're seeing in the crypto space found in almost all sectors of the economy. The 80/20 rule where 80% of the audience focuses on the speculative aspects of a given market while the remaining 20% focuses on production, feasibility, improvement of that same market. The Decentralized Finance space is surging at the moment with the surge of new tokens appearing for trade. Finally, our final topic is how gaming will evolve in Decentraland.
