    Episode 77: Decentralized Clouds and DWeb Namespaces, with David Vorick

    On this episode of BlockChannel, Mckie and Petty go in deeper on the decentralized web with one of the storage related subject matter experts that started it all, David Vorick. If Juan Benet of Filecoin is Microsoft, then David is Steve Jobs to the Siacoin/Skynet ecosystem. Building a decentralized storage protocol can be done in a few ways; David’s team went the route of building their vision iteratively, in hopes the adoption would come. Their vision is now coming into fruition, and we explore how he got here, and where Siacoin/Skynet is going.

    Episode 75: A Cultural Exchange of Value, with Foundation

    On this episode of Blockchannel, Mckie and Dr. Petty finally have another discussion about NFTs, it's been a couple of years...and finally that narrative has reached maturity. We take this resurgence in the non-fungible narrative to speak to Kayvon and Matt from the Foundation team. They're building a "cultural stock exchange of value", and if that sounds obscure and futuristic, that's because it is. And, we think it's the future, after this, you may too.

    Episode 73: Aiming for Mature Markets, with Three Arrows Capital

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie and Dee get the lowdown on how mature crypto markets have become from Kyle Davies of Three Arrows Capital. Kyle is a veteran hedge fund manager with prior experience in the forex markets before making his big break into crypto a few years ago. His insights provide us a clearer lens into how to scale our mental model of emerging derivatives and option markets surrounding the launch of professional trading platforms such as Deribit. We also make fun of traditional hedge fund conferences; seriously they're the worst.

    Episode 72: Bitcoin and American Values, with Nic Carter

    On this episode of BlockChannel, McKie, Dee and Dr. Petty have an astute conversation with Nic Carter, GP of Castle Island Ventures and Twitter renowned Bitcoin enthusiast. We like the way Nic thinks about dollarization, governance, and how they coincide with certain aspects of bitcoin, such as its distribution, to better understand its tech and where its going in the future. This episode is a tad longer than usual, but we think you'll enjoy the lack of brevity in this one.
