    PlayMakers⁠ aims to redefine the traditional developer-player relationship by turning players into creators. This shift is a new market practice in the video game industry, where historically, players were consumers of content. With the rise of social media and player vocalization, studios now consider player engagement metrics as key performance indicators. Players contribute content, influencing game success and shaping the relationship dynamics. As games digitalize, players actively participate in game creation, offering new characters, stories, environments, and more. The advent of generative AI tools empowers players further. However, ethical questions arise, such as ownership of game success, decision-making authority, intellectual property rights, and income distribution. Balancing fairness and transparency is crucial to establishing a model that rewards creators while leveraging audience creativity to enhance games.

    Let’s deep dive in three parts into UGC, gaming and understand what PlayMakers is building in that space, together with our guest, ⁠Ilan Nabeth⁠, PlayMakers Co-Founder and CEO.

    [REPLAY] Powering the Zero Knowledge Revolution, with Kurt Hemecker, now CEO of the MINA Foundation | a web3 episode

    [REPLAY] Powering the Zero Knowledge Revolution, with Kurt Hemecker, now CEO of the MINA Foundation | a web3 episode

    Many catalysts are in place for the MINA ecosystem to flourish in 2024 and beyond. Back in April 2023, I recorded with Kurt Hemecker a ⁠Runway Series (venture capital, crypto/web3 podcast, runwayseries.co)⁠ episode about the ⁠Mina Foundation⁠ and how it serves the MINA Protocol.

    Big crypto announcement for the Swiss / Geneva #crypto ecosystem.

    The Mina Foundation, a major crypto Foundation which serves the #zeroknowledge MINA Protocol, becomes a Swiss Foundation 🇨🇭, as it officially relocates from the US to Switzerland.. And for once, not headquartered in Zug but in Geneva!

    A rare occurrence, when usually Zug takes the lion share in the country when it comes to crypto attractivity and headquarters.

    Taking a step back, I even think that it is a strong signal for the benefit of the European crypto market vs. the US.

    Read more (in 🇫🇷) from Joan Plancade for Bilan Magazine: https://lnkd.in/ecKCw3BV

    Also, Kurt Hemecker (ex-PayPal, ex-Libra/Diem) is promoted from COO to CEO, taking over from MINA Founder Evan Shapiro who becomes President of the MINA Foundation.

    In 2022, MINA has raised more than $90M for its unique zero-knowledge protocol, notably for its constant size... of only 22kb. But there is much more to learn from the thriving MINA ecosystem and protocol.

    As a global pre-seed web3 investor focusing 100% on ZK with Olive Capital, and based in Geneva, I am really excited by this news for our ecosystem and about what Mina is building.

    We’ve entered the third era of the internet, as Chris Dixon says, from a16z. An internet owned by the builders and the users. web3 that blockchain will create a true decentralized data layer, centered around three main characteristics, including organizations around digital assets. In the future, every organization will own and utilize digital assets, the same way that every organization owns and utilizes physical assets today. According to the crypto startup Narval, secure usage and access control is the game in the digital property era. Key storage is maturing, with significant advancements in MPC, smart wallets, and HSMs, resulting in multiple options for securing keys - via a custodian or self-custody or decentralized-custody - depending on an organization’s needs and use-cases. As key generation & storage decouples from the rest of the wallet stack, ⁠Narval⁠'s core innovation is a granular governance and orchestration layer over any key storage and custody model, designed from the ground up to enable precise usage & access control over digital property. In this episode, we welcome ⁠Greg Jessner Co-founder & CEO @ Narval⁠. With a recent announcement of a $4 million seed round led by BlockTower, Narval is accelerating on its journey to build the wallet management platform for organizations. In this episode we explore the ethical considerations of such control, the philosophical implications of ownership in the web3 era, and the delicate balance between decentralization and control. We'll also examine Narval's core innovations, the technical intricacies behind their security measures, and how their platform addresses the challenges faced by organizations in securely using their digital assets. Let's get into the episode right now.

On ne voit pas le temps passé

Bien que je n’y connaisse pas grand chose à l’investissement, j’ai été plongé dans l’épisode et je n’ai pas vu le temps passé.
Entre précision avec des exemples précis et transposition à toute entreprise, c’est un très bon équilibre !
Félicitations
