    Decentralized creativity & collaboration (with Rob McElhenney)

    Decentralized creativity & collaboration (with Rob McElhenney)

    with @RMcElhenney @cdixon @smc90

    Based on a live conversation that took place earlier this week at NFT NYC between special guest Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mythic Quest; Adim); Chris Dixon, and Sonal Chokshi, this episode is all about the theme of decentralized media/ decentralized content creation. We cover creative collaboration and community; creator access; IP and evolution of the internet; and where NFTs and web3 specifically comes in -- do we really need web3 for this? The conversation also touches on topics such as the metaverse, storytelling across mediums, managing writer’s rooms, favorite TV shows, nostalgia, and much more.

    In this episode, we go into all things auctions -- which applies in web3 contexts to everything from NFT mints to blockchains themselves. We provide an overview of auction types and incentive design, and how it works in both theory and practice -- including the nuances of market-clearing prices, gas wars, and more… sharing tradeoffs, choices, and principles for builders designing these systems throughout.
