Urbit ID Is An NFT
We break down why anyone would want to own a digital—or analog, for that matter—object as we chat with Galen Wolfe-Pauly of Urbit. Urbit is a novel re-architecture of computers and the web that tracks social and cryptographic identity on Ethereum as an NFT. Listen to see how the Urbit ID system is a perfect illustration of our ownership-value-framework.
We're Back! New Year, New Season
After a long hiatus that saw both Matt and Jonathan stepping away from the NFT space to work on other projects, we are BACK and ready to start a whole new chapter of Digitally Rare.
This is a mini-episode to say hello, and deal with an NFT conundrum that Jonathan has been thinking about. He's finally launching the Song A Day NFT project! See the first tokenized Song A Day here.
A real new episode will drop a week from today, where we speak with Galen of Tlon, who's making Urbit. It's a fascinating conversation.
We have a whole new format we're working on for the show, and a ton of great interviews already in the can.

And you can be involved!

Tough Love and Hot Takes (Live in NYC @ RareAF2)
