    THOUSANDS of POAPs, and new Earnifi integrations with GitPOAP - Colfax.eth

    Colfax.eth is the Co-founder & CEO of GitPOAP. He is a builder of all builders and he came initially from the EthStaker community.  He is passionate about Ethereum and open source. Colfax started giving away POAP tokens and found that it actually led to more contributions. Now, he has spun it up into an entire product, which makes it very easy to give out POAP tokens if you run an open-source project.

    We have several big releases for earni.fi announced here. Earnifi now lets you save a GitHub username and search for GitPOAPs! Listen to the entire episode for those product announcements!

    Crypto Anarchy, Decentralized RPC, and Programming Languages - blockjoe

    Crypto Anarchy, Decentralized RPC, and Programming Languages - blockjoe

    Today Joe and I covered the Pocket Network, where node runners can get paid to serve RPC requests. Joe is unique because he comes from a crypto-anarchist background where you run your own node. He's got in-depth knowledge about core infra and the backend, which application developers like me rarely dig into.

    If you want to know how blockchains work at a lower-level, this is your episode.

    Modular Open-Sourcing, Web3 Perf, and meaning. A product how-to with Dawson + Superfluid on Devs Do Something

    Modular Open-Sourcing, Web3 Perf, and meaning. A product how-to with Dawson + Superfluid on Devs Do Something

    Following my win at EthBogota, I explain how Modular Open-Sourcing works. This is my methodology for creating production-ready software and releasing it to GitHub through hackathons. 

    I owe Sam and Joshua a massive thank you for the opportunity to unpack my current thoughts here. I'm sure this episode will be worth revisiting for years as we discuss timeless lessons like meaning, luck, open-sourcing, and hackathons.
