👾 Game to Watch


I've been skeptical of onchain games because I haven't played anything that doesn't suck... Until today.

Petfrens combines Tamagotchi (for those old enough to remember) and Pokemon with a degen flavor.

I played for a bit, and finally found a decent, clean, and simple game to get the ball rolling. It can get addictive because it has in-game rewards (like making your pet more powerful) and crypto in the form of $PetPoints. Also, if you don't fit your pet every now and then, it will die...

👀 In case you missed it

Blockchain Layers and L3s

In the last deep dive, I went all in on blockchain layers and L3, as I felt I needed to understand why we need a new layer on top of L2s like Base, Arbitrum, and Polygon. I think there are compelling arguments, and whatever your role is in the space, understanding the backbone and technology will put you ahead.

Half of the article is for NFT Subscription holders.

Physical assets on the Blockchain, AI, Flying cars, and more with July

Aleks and I had a fantastic conversation with July, founder of Faust and Roc. Roc is a reality oracle computer that notarizes reality onchain. Before his recent entrepreneurship endeavor, July was part of the team building autonomous flying cars at Kitty Hawk (Google).

He shared his journey of overcoming product and business challenges, the envisioned future of using AI and Blockchain to notarise reality onchain and an interesting story about Isaac Newton and shit coins.

That's it for today.

Remember to enter the raffle for Canvas Legacies by Studio Asisi here, and stay tuned; an exciting allowlist opportunity is around the corner.

Until next time,
