The Ultimate Guide to Crypto Finance. Level up. Go bankless.

    89 - A New Era for DeFi | Scoopy Truples of Alchemix

    89 - A New Era for DeFi | Scoopy Truples of Alchemix

    Scoopy Truples from Alchemix returns to Bankless to update us on what lies ahead for the protocol, and more broadly, the DeFi ecosystem.
    Alchemix v2 is on the horizon, which will allow for much more composability and integration with the rest of DeFi, as well as introducing new means of collateral such as LUSD and MIM. Scoopy also details plans for Layer 2 and Cross-Chain launches.
    The second half of the conversation turns to DeFi 2.0, which Scoopy outlined in this epic twitter thread. This new generation of DeFi projects introduce a new primitive for bootstrapping liquidity and capital to a protocol, which traditionally has been achieved via incentivized liquidity pools.
    This new model allows protocols to purchase LP positions and accrue value more sustainably, discouraging mercenary capital that leaves when rewards taper off. Scoopy brings big ideas and digestible explanations to this complicated topic, contextualizing what may become a new era for DeFi.

    Olympus DAO and its native OHM token have taken over the meme-osphere. With its novel tokenomics, it has become an emergent powerhouse in this DeFi 2.0 phenomenon. With Olympus Pro on the way, the DAO seeks to change the current mercenary structures of yield farming and replace it with a sustainable and stable ecosystem.

    Andrew Yang is a former Presidential and Mayoral candidate, entrepreneur, and founder of the new Forward Party. Seeking ways to push our democracy into the future, Andrew has championed novel ideas to improve the deep intrinsic problems of the current two-party system.
    We see aligned interests between the Forward Party and the crypto community, and Andrew says during the episode that the Forward party IS the Crypto party. Re-establishing legitimacy to our institutions, evolving our governance system, and upgrading our economic protocols are shared interests of Andrew Yang and the Bankless Nation. We are stoked to have Andrew on the podcast, so dive in for a fascinating discussion of what's wrong with our current system and what we can do to fix it.

    Crypto Gaming Panel | Loot Squad, Yield Guild, Illuvium

    The magnitude of crypto gaming is increasingly clear, for those paying attention. For Bryce Johnson of Loot Squad, Gabby Dizon of Yield Guild, and Kieran Warwick of Illuvium, crypto gaming is inevitable.
    Existing at the intersection of finance, gaming, and culture, this sector has a gargantuan addressable market. Axie Infinity has tapped into the passion and potential of dedicated communities, building an entire economy around its protocol. As the traditional gaming market flounders, new strides are being taken to revolutionize how we game, how we work, and how we own.
