Someone or some organization sits in the middle, making the rules, and taking a toll (either taxes or fees) for providing a function. And they change the rules to benefit themselves, because they can.

But true decentralization (i.e. taking the man out of the middle) is complex, because token economics is complex, as is governance and consensus. We’re in the early days…

Our thesis: Every day, we spend more time in the digital realm, or the “metaverse.” And every day, that time is increasingly immersive. In the metaverse, crypto will be the de facto currency, and NFTs will confer ownership of everything from real estate and art to collectibles and fashion.

So we started “Assets of the Metaverse” to help put these alternate digital worlds, and associated assets, into context, so we can make money and change the world.

On June 29, 2017, I saw the crypto light. It was a religious experience. It felt like I could see the future, a future in which crypto was the biggest thing to happen in the history of humanity.

I’ve had countless conversations trying to help others understand crypto. However, only a tiny percentage of people I’ve…
