#100 - Nathan and Neal reflect on a year of crypto

Happy Anniversary!  For the past year Nathan and Neal have brought you thoughts on crypto nearly twice a week, sometimes more, and today we take a breather in a Montreal park to reflect on how far we've come as a show and as an industry.

#99 - Crypto is starting to draw in high net worth individuals

Neal and Nathan met up in Montreal and recorded an episode in the local park, where they discussed the changing nature of crypto exchanges. They now want high net worth individuals to invest rather than everyday Joe - who is finding it harder to buy crypto. Is cryto going off course? Or is it necessary for the sustainabilty of the industry?

#98 - Will blockchain be the future for gaming economies?

Over the years computer gaming has become an increasingly online activity funded by loot boxes, and in game cosmetic and functional items that can be purchased via microtransaction. Blockchain has offered an exciting way of guaranteeing rarity of in-game items and providing secondary markets for your loot.  But with every innovation comes challenges including developers losing dictatorial authority over their in game economies and external requlatory issues surrounding lootboxes being classified as gambling.  How will blockchain pave the way forward for the hats your elves wear?  Join Nathan and Neal as they explore the topic!

#95 - What problem are you solving?

With the crypto crash, today Nathan decided to take a bit of a break from talking about the rollercoaster ride that is Crypto and instead talk about something close to his heart - how he frames and looks at the world.

Blockchain is very popular right now and a lot of people are evaluating whether to change careers to get more involved in blockchain. New graduates are looking at how to start a career in tech.  Young entrepreneurs are thinking of doing blockchain startups but aren't sure what idea they should have.

 

Nathan's advice - instead of framing your career or business in terms of what you're good at, what you want to do, or what you want to get, frame it in terms of what problems you want to solve, and all the rest will get much clearer.
