DAOn the Rabbit Hole 13 June 2022

Episode Description

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking to Patrick Rivera, Product Engineer at Mirror, a home for web3 publishing. 

We begin the episode getting to know Patrick, his background, and how he fell down the crypto rabbit hole. He takes us through his journey from web2 to web3 and describes an article that really inspired him, Zora’s “What is Cryptomedia?” manifesto. 

Next, Patrick defines the term cryptomedia. He describes some of the issues in web2 media and explains how web3 is aiming to combat those issues. He lays out for us how Mirror enables creators to monetize their work, a completely different model from the ads and algorithms we’re used to in web2.

Patrick emphasizes the importance of using crypto native tools and highlights some projects using mirror successfully. We discuss the different approaches creators can take when migrating to web3 and how NFTs are changing our digital identity. 

To close out our conversation, Patrick gives us the inside scoop on Mirror’s newest features and shares how Mirror hopes to impact and benefit the web3 ecosystem in the future.

S2 E11: Life of a Full-Time DAO Contributor (Kairon)

S2 E11: Life of a Full-Time DAO Contributor (Kairon)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking with Kairon, Founder of ASCAN and a full-time DAO contributor.  Kairon got started in web3 when he took a leap of faith, quit his day job, and dove headfirst into the space. Although he doesn’t recommend that approach for everyone, he’s learned a few things along the way and shares those learnings with our listeners.  We set the stage by defining a DAO as Kairon shares the thought process he goes through when choosing a project to contribute to. We lay out some of the common DAO structures and Kairon explains what it’s like making money through contribution - without a supervisor, without clocking in, and without being contractually bound to the work.  We discuss some major issues contributors face when working for DAOs, including issues of ambiguous compensation and free labor, as well as issues DAOs themselves are facing - like over-decentralizing too quickly.  We close out our conversation with Kairon explaining the day-to-day of a DAO contributor and describing what contribution looks like for him, leaving listeners with some advice if they are interested in getting involved in the DAO space. He also gives us the inside scoop on his newest project - ASCAN.  To continue this conversation and stay up to date on all things DAOn the Rabbit Hole, you can follow Anay on Twitter @anay_sim and RabbitHole @rabbithole_gg.

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking with Deana Burke and Natasha Hoskins, Co-Founders of Boys Club. Boys Club is a community known as the no bro zone for the crypto curious. Deana has been in the crypto space since 2017 and spent four years convincing her friend Natasha to get on the bandwagon. In 2021 Natasha finally saw what all of the hype was about and together, they founded Boys Club.  Boys Club is a safe space for people to explore crypto and ask questions, even if they don’t look like the traditional tech guy. We discuss Boys Club’s mission of onboarding women and non-binary people into web3 by nurturing curiosity and helping people find web3 use cases for things they are already interested in.  We dive deeper into Boys Club, how the name came to be, and what makes this community and brand so special. We also get into Boys Club’s DAO, why DAOs should start small, and how a brand can scale while maintaining its cohesiveness. We discuss the importance of women-led projects in the space, while also acknowledging that being a woman is not the most interesting thing here - it’s what we’re building and what we’re creating.  To continue this conversation and stay up to date on all things DAOn the Rabbit Hole, you can follow Anay on Twitter @anay_sim and RabbitHole @rabbithole_gg.

S2 E7: Autonomous Worlds: Expanding the Magic Circle in Gaming (Justin Glibert)

S2 E7: Autonomous Worlds: Expanding the Magic Circle in Gaming (Justin Glibert)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking with Justin Glibert from 0xPARC. 0xPARC is a program for applied research in cryptography, supporting application-level R&D on Ethereum and decentralized platforms. Justin’s first touchpoint with crypto was on hacker forums when he was in his early teens. He discovered that people were selling exploits to each other with bitcoin, which at the time only cost $10. Fast forward to the pandemic, Justin happened to stumble across a tweet about the game Dark Forest and decided to DM the creators on twitter. Next thing you know he was invited to Mexico to spend 3 months with them working to work on the game.  Justin explains what Dark Forest is and why it’s so different from any other game out there. We dive into how trust between gamers and game creators is different once a game is fully on-chain and Justin defines the gaming concept of a “magic circle.” We discuss the Metaverse, gaming in the Metaverse, and how the Metaverse is much more than VR sets and NFT galleries.  Justin tells us all about 0xPARC and the inspiration behind it. We talk about zero knowledge proofs, autonomous worlds, building for the future, co-ops, and 0xPARC’s long term business model. Justin explains some basics of digital physics and some of the things 0xPARC is experimenting with. We come to the conclusion that although gaming may be the key to mainstream crypto adoption, crypto simply isn’t ready for mainstream adoption quite yet - and that’s okay because when it is, 0xPARC will be ready.  To continue this conversation and stay up to date on all things DAOn the Rabbit Hole, you can follow Anay on Twitter @anaysim and RabbitHole @rabbithole_gg.

S2 E5: DAO Delegation: To Delegate to an Individual or a DAO? (Linda Xie and Julia Rosenberg)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking to Julia Rosenberg and Linda Xie. Julia is a Co-Founder of Orca Protocol, a DAO implementation tool and Linda is a Co-Founder of Scalar Capital, a crypto investment firm. Linda is also a Delegate for Gitcoin, Element and Optimism.  We begin our conversation by laying some groundwork and having Linda and Julia answer the big question: what is metagovernance? We dive into all of the nuances of metagovernance and discuss its fluidity, dynamics, chaos, benefits, and how it evolved over time. The conversation leads us to discussing delegates within DAOs that participate in metagovernance, and Linda explains how she manages being a delegate for 3 different organizations as well as running her own company. We discuss delegate compensation models, issues with those models, the pros and cons of Gitcoin’s implementation of health cards, and the issue of “zombie delegates.” Julia explains her philosophy of governance via working groups/ factions/ parties over putting the responsibility in the hands of individuals. We compare metagovernance to political structures we see today, and discuss the issues of politics and popularity contests within metagovernance.  We close out our conversation re-envisioning what we’d like governance to look like in the future, shouting out some amazing projects that are on the leading edge of metagovernance, and leaving listeners with some tips for how to get involved and become a delegate.  To continue this conversation and stay up to date on all things DAOn the Rabbit Hole, you can follow Anay on Twitter @anaysim and RabbitHole @rabbithole_gg.

S2 E2: Understanding DAOs and How to Scale Them (Yury Lifshits)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking to Yury Lifshits from SuperDAO to dive into the complex topic of DAOs. SuperDAO is the ‘Shopify of DAOs’ allowing users to start, manage, and grow their own DAO, so we would consider Yury an expert on the subject, and the perfect person to answer our questions.  We kickoff our conversation by laying some groundwork and answering the highly memed question, “what is a DAO?” Yury explains several common definitions of DAOs and describes what a DAO means to him. We then get into the different types of DAOs, different DAO structures, challenges that DAOs are facing, and how they are solving those problems.

S2 E1: NFTs and the Future of Music (Cherie Hu)

S2 E1: NFTs and the Future of Music (Cherie Hu)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking to Cherie Hu, Co-Founder of Water and Music, a research publication focused on the intersection of music and tech which has recently undergone the process of becoming a DAO.  We kicked off the conversation discussing the state of the web2 music industry today and how blockchain technology and NFTs offer an alternative business model for musical artists and their fans. We discuss how digital scarcity is possible in the music industry, which is typically thought of as not scarce at all, with unlimited music streaming virtually for free. Cherie says that what is scarce however, is the relationship between artists and their fans, and it is this scarcity that NFTs can monetize. Cherie also lays out for us her definition of a music NFT and shares how these NFTs can be used to enhance the relationship between artists and their fans. Next, we break down some big topics into simpler terms. We go over the ways in which fans can acquire NFTs from their favorite web3 music artists and ways that artists can start onboarding themselves into web3. We dive into the complicated topic of DAOs and break down some possible definitions of a DAO. We discuss the creator economy and how NFTs can benefit not only artists, but their fans as well.  Finally we wrap up our conversation by leaving you with some advice on how to onboard into web3 and get started with music NFTs.

S1 E18: Democratizing Access to NFTs (Cryptnotiq)

S1 E18: Democratizing Access to NFTs (Cryptnotiq)

On this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re chatting with Cryptnotiq, founder of Fraktal. Fraktal is an NFT fractionalization ecosystem consisting of the Fraktal Protocol, their native governance token ($FRAK), and the Fraktal DAO. Cryptnotiq brings us back to the first days of Fraktal - a project that began as a workaround for sharing revenue generated from music NFT sales. The result is a protocol that allows many people to share ownership over one NFT, opening the doors to all types of new applications.  Cryptnotiq explains the many use cases for fractionalizing NFTs, including increased liquidity and co-ownership. We also discuss the advantages of NFT fractionalization as well as some common misconceptions.  The Fraktal Protocol is entirely governed by Fraktal DAO - a decentralized community of $FRAK holders that protects against any wrongful extraction, and gets rewarded in the process. Cryptnotiq looks to the future of NFTs and DAOs with optimism, and shares his thoughts on the potential impact of this new technology.  To continue this conversation and stay up to date on all things DAOn the Rabbit Hole, you can follow Diana on Twitter @ddwchen and RabbitHole @rabbithole_gg.

S1 E3: Debunking Common DeFi Myths (DeFi Dave)

S1 E3: Debunking Common DeFi Myths (DeFi Dave)

In this episode of DAOn the Rabbit Hole, we’re talking to DeFi Dave. He hosts the DeFi Scoop podcast, and he’s here to debunk a few of the more common myths about decentralized finance. Dave talks about his first experiences with DeFi and some of the misconceptions he had early on. He starts by discussing the common preconception that crypto is a tool for criminals and drug dealers, and how people (incorrectly) worry about the security of their crypto assets. We talk about the ideas that crypto is a purely speculative asset with no real utility, that crypto is too volatile and risky to replace traditional banking, and that crypto is reserved for tech bros and wealthy people. Dave also tears into the common myth (on both sides) that crypto is only for conservatives, or only for liberals. He explains why crypto is not a threat to democracy, or necessarily bad for the environment. Is crypto a cult? Dave addresses this popular notion, too, along with the common assertion that crypto will never replace cash and fiat money, and that it’s not valid as a store of value.
