Back from vacation and back to shipping at /frens! Got in a refactor that speeds up searching for tokens from 1000ms to about 200ms. Shoutout to @wijuwiju.eth for helping me out with recs, some learnings below ๐Ÿ‘‡

Building /frens, a crypto messaging app. Spent the week on a caching system for tokens (like erc20s) based around CAIP-19 cross-chain ids. Motivation was to have a standardized unique identifier that had all the data necessary so we wouldnโ€™t have to refactor from the ground up for Solana or Bitcoin.

Just read Rippling's investor memo that they used to raise a $790M Series F. In their first line, they explicitly state the thing that's missing in almost every bad pitch I've seen from a great founder: they share the unique insight. Def worth trying. https://rippling2.imgix.net/Investor-Memo-2024-Apr-public.pdf

Sharing some trends I'm excited by from the W24 batch of YC companies: - Foundational models for hard problems (physics, materials, neuroscience) - The return of hardware (batteries, drones, robots) - AI infra and tooling (RAG, databases, memory, data labeling, testing)

Crypto founders should apply to @a16zcrypto CSX before Friday! It was critical to refining our thinking on everything from incentive design to progressive decentralization. For anyone applying, drop your one liner below! Iโ€™ll reach out to review apps for the first 5 people (and more time permitting)

FYI: a whale bought approximately 370 ETH worth of $DEGEN over the past two days for a grand total of 156,863,283 DEGEN... It's been in batches of 10-25 ETH at a time so driving a lot of activitiy. https://www.onceupon.gg/0x2f79978041392ebb7f1f741939e63e70c8e70100:0~100

IMO the most interesting piece of Drakula is how you can watch a video and then immediately buy the creator token on the same page. Friend.tech gated the content first which made it hard to understand what you were buying into, but the immediate gratification of buying after watching is pretty addicting...
