    Episode 89: The Center of Online Attention, with Cent Network

    Episode 89: The Center of Online Attention, with Cent Network

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie continues his journey of solo hosting and brings back an old favorite on the show, Cameron Hejazi of the Cent Network. Cent has been a pioneer in the Ethereum ecosystem since 2017 with the launch of their micropayments focused social network. Since their inception, they were one of the first to introduce NFTs into a social platform; even introducing the ability to turn tweets into NFTs (famously used by Jack Dorsey to sell his first tweet for $2.9mill). As we ramp up for the next stage of innovation in crypto, Cameron is back to give us insights into what comes next.

Impervious is a developer outfit trying to merge the bitcoin cypherpunk development ethos more deeply into the Handshake community. By supporting the adoption of Handshake through Beacon Browser, the Impervious Registry, and funding core development, Mike has done a lot for the community. We give him and the Impervious team the love they deserve, and discuss Mike's perspective on the HNS community.

    Episode 85: Even Domains are Bigger in Texas, with Nole Oppermann

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie heads down to Texas to talk to Nole Oppermann, right from the comfort of his downstairs office. With Handshake growing in popularity in various regions of the world, it would only make sense for Texas to have its own unique TLD. And, Nole is the proud owner/manager of .TX, and one of the main pioneers for Handshake in the Austin region. He gives us insights into building his community from scratch, and what he thinks about the greater HNS ecosystem.
