93. TBR - Interview Daniel Kim - NFTBank.ai - Valuation of Your NFTs

December 3, 2020

On this episode William and Iman speak with Daniel Kim from NFTBank.ai to discuss an NFT portfolio app that will help you evaluate your NFTs. We get the origin story on how NFTBank came to be as well as the most optimal way to use the app. We get into the details as to what kind of data is needed to valuate NFTs. Being able to collect and value a portfolio for NFTs is a large missing piece to on-boarding additional users to the space. Most NFTs are hard to evaluate, we get a hard look as to what increases value of NFTs.

Topics: 

  1. First up, we get an inside look at how NFTBank will bring in more liquidity into Non Fungible Tokens
  2. Next, what kind of data is needed to put a value on NFTs?
  3. Then, We talk about some of the issues plaguing NFTs

91. TBR - Solving Decentraland District Dilemma, Bitcoin Explodes

91. TBR - Solving Decentraland District Dilemma, Bitcoin Explodes

November 18, 2020

With the recent surge of Bitcoin we take a look back at our predictions and acknowledge the cadence that Bitcoin has in the market. Regardless of the environmental effects surrounding Bitcoin, it seems that Bitcoin has a mind of its own. The latest run has Bitcoin now going past $17k. The last time this happened was back in 2017 during the previous bull run. We then get into Decentraland's district dilemma where we describe the lack of content being deployed. MetaZone finally supports district deployments where meta-owners can now contribute their meta to districts. This means that you don't have to be a landowner to purchase and deploy a meta. This means revenue generating metas can now be deployed and revenue can be shared with districts. Big things are happening in Decentraland. Stay tuned to the end for the next event!

Topics:

  1. First up, Bitcoin takes off as we look back at how we got here.
  2. Next, events in Decentraland is only phase 1 towards the longterm journey.
  3. Then, we go over some fundamental missing pieces in Decentraland.
  4. Finally, lets take a look at how we're solving the district dilemma in Decentraland.

89. TBR - A New Class of NFTs are On the Horizon

89. TBR - A New Class of NFTs are On the Horizon

November 3, 2020

We review the Halloween event that Decentraland launched that showcased a quest that spanned over 5 days. It showcased questing that required you to teleport to different locations to finish off your tasks. This shows that our premise that you can build a game without owning a large connected parcel. We also discuss the most dominant NFT asset class that represents over 99% of all NFTs. There's a new NFT class emerging that we consider as a productive NFT versus the well known unproductive NFT which depends on the Greater Fool Theory.

Topics:

  1. First up, we review the Halloween event in Decentraland
  2. Next, almost all NFTs are non-producing asset.
  3. Then, we explain how every NFT that exists today depends on the Greater Fool Theory
  4. and Finally, we show how we're introducing the first productive NFT.

88. TBR - Decentraland 1 Year Later & How to Sell Art for $110k

88. TBR - Decentraland 1 Year Later & How to Sell Art for $110k

October 24, 2020

We look back on a year of content development in Decentraland. We go from a gray grid of 90,000 parcels to a fully rendered representation of actual content deployed within the metaverse (https://decentraland.icu/). We provide how it makes logical sense that all NFT minting projects will use a side chain because its a sound business decision. If a sidechain wasn't an option will it make sense for developers to keep assets off chain to avoid gas fees? We try to make sense of an NFT art being sold for $110K. We break down what's needed to sell art in the 6 figures.

Topics:

  1. First up, we take a look back at 1 year of development in Decentraland
  2. Next, we summarize how the NFT landscape will evolve.
  3. Then, how a sidechain is the right business decision.
  4. And Finally, we break down what it takes to sell NFT art for $110 thousand dollars.

87. TBR - Rug Pull Culture is Forming

87. TBR - Rug Pull Culture is Forming

October 17, 2020

How the rug pull culture is slowly eroding the morale of everyone in the crypto space. The more projects with anonymous founders the more likely a rug pull becomes more likely. The trend of an anonymous founders is a sign of the infancy of the space. We're noticing some valuable mechanics being implemented by these anonymous founders that we believe legitimate projects will implement as a justifiable mechanism. We've seen a lot of missed opportunities by NFT minting platforms using ERC20 tokens that can be improved on. Ethermon drops their biggest announcement yet, they have just acquired the Battle District which is 668 parcels! We also show off our Corona Zombie wearable in Decentraland!

Topics: 

  1. First up, a rug pull culture is forming and the psychological effects because of it.
  2. Next, Crypto business models are evolving towards sustainable Tokenomics
  3. Then, Ethermon Takes over a District in Decentraland for the biggest MMORPG yet.
  4. Finally, Join our new discussion with DCLblogger and check out our new Wearable in Decentraland!

86. TBR - Kucoin Hacked & Honeyswap Saves Investors from Gas Fees

86. TBR - Kucoin Hacked & Honeyswap Saves Investors from Gas Fees

October 5, 2020

Episode 86 kicks off with a discussion on tokenomics design the MetaZone platform. We discuss how we encourage participation on the platform by rewarding the creators and collectors with platform tokens. Gas fees have calmed down recently, but increasing gas prices are just around the corner. Honeyswap is a fork of Uniswap but built on top of the xDAI network. This means that swaps cost almost no gas but the downside is coins need to use a bridge for them to work on the 2nd layer. We drop in some technical analysis into the podcast to show that sometimes it does work but its an unreliable tool. Finally, the community that created the $HNY token called 1Hive.org uses a way to verify their members and one of them created Honeyswap.

Topics:

  1. First up, a Hacker takes over $150 million dollars from Kucoin exchange.
  2. Next, Someone built Uniswap on xDAI sidechain called Honeyswap.
  3. Then, We discuss whether or not technical analysis is reliable.
  4. Finally, Can a community start with a token and be successful?

85. TBR - UNI Airdrop, SORA and Polkaswap, & Plasm Airdrop

Uniswap has grown to a volume that has surpassed larger centralized exchanges such as Coinbase. With a decentralized exchange releasing a token to reward the behavior they want to encourage, Uniswap is poised to grow even larger. In this podcast, we break down the connection between SORA and Polkaswap. As we look for the next sector of the industry to do a parabolic run up, we speculate that the next ecosystem with high potential would be Polkadot. We also dive into the Plasm platform and we breakdown their lockdrop protocol.

Topics:

  1. First up, We Debrief on the Effects of the UNI Distribution.
  2. Next, What's the connection between SORA and Polkaswap?

84. TBR - Making Money From Your Decentraland Parcel, MetaZone NFT, xDAI & Matic

84. TBR - Making Money From Your Decentraland Parcel, MetaZone NFT, xDAI & Matic

September 21, 2020

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.

Topics:

  1. First up, What's taking so long for the Ethermon Egg Nest?
  2. Next, Update on MetaZone NFTs.
  3. Then, What is the proper tokenomics for NFT platforms?
  4. And Finally, Sidechains will become standard.
