What’re the strongest reasons why prediction markets need to be built on crypto rails? They’re one of the canonical smart contract use cases and I find myself increasingly using them to understand world events, but it’s not clear to me if Kalshi or Polymarket have the better approach

Interesting case study on the future of crypto app monetization - what would you do if you were running Uniswap Labs? - $2.6M of revenue in 3 months from frontend fee. $10.5M run rate - 1.2% of total volume has paid fees - Avg fee revenue per day has declined 22% between October and January - Company valued at $1.6B

Apps like @warpcast and @converseapp are the most exciting consumer apps for showing the potential of crypto to normies Their values props are easy to understand (i.e. use converse to send messages and $ instantly to anyone in the world) and they're slowly introducing the benefits of building on open protocols

Most people will never understand how difficult it is to design simple, valuable protocol mechanisms that seem obvious in hindsight Consumer crypto apps need to feel like magic and Zora is leading the way here

Channels are the killer feature and should scale well - Creation can be permissionless because clients don’t need to expose all channels - Channel creators can choose curation rules (who has read and write access) - Clients can choose their own algorithms for ranking conversations

I’m in the minority here, but I’m skeptical of the DAOs ability to successfully fund offchain software. - Funding for non-public goods software is a solved problem - Software gradually decays even when open source (does the DAO need to pay maintainers forever?) - Judging quality is by committee is suboptimal

I’m around all week if any protocol teams are thinking through onchain governance/access control We just deployed a new framework to most major EVM chains that’s a fresh take on the space. We based it on our experience contributing to Aave, Lido, Maker, Uniswap, Nouns over the past couple of years

All it takes for crypto VC funding to shift from infrastructure to apps is one breakout success. Funding the long-tail of infra will keep being the beneficial strategy until something works at scale which derisks tech choices for all other founders.

Really impressive to see Coinbase execute an aggressive product strategy turnaround as a public company. Exchanges went from being the place where crypto happens to fiat on/off-ramps for onchain activity and few have accepted this reality.

Using ads to monetize content leads to optimizing for views and requires scale to generate meaningful income. Minting is medium agnostic (i.e. music, text, podcasts), enables creators to monetize much earlier in their creative journey, and allows experimentation with different incentives (i.e. 1/1, open edition).

The dominant conversation topic on all new social networks is talking about the network itself I don't think this is a bad thing (eg. tweets about twitter still get a lot of engagement), but it seems like a great filter to grow past this phase

Llama is launching an onchain governance system. It's a flexible framework that can work for service orgs, NFT communities, protocols. I'd love to chat if you're thinking through your project's governance. Its design is heavily influenced by our experience contributing to Aave, Uniswap, Nouns, Gitcoin, Lido, Maker.
