    206. TBR - How to Create the CryptoPunk of Ordinals | Interview w/ Ev Founder of NatCats.mp3

    Since the release of the UNAT addition to the DMT framework about 6 weeks ago, Natcats have taken the NFT space by storm by introducing for the first time a truly unique value proposition to the digital asset space. Ev, founder of Natcats was the first to deploy an art collection that fully utilized the Unique Non-arbitrary Token framework. This enables the digital asset supply existence and the artistic characteristics of the art itself to be solely determined by block data.
    Up until now all NFT art collections have had arbitrary supplies, largely in the realm of a 10k supply which was a market narrative set forth by Cryptopunks in the early days of NFTs. Now, due to the introduction of DMT, non-arbitrary digital asset genesis can be produced by the Bitcoin blockchain itself by leveraging existing NAT frameworks and clever utilization of inscription native technologies such as recursion. Since the deployment Natcats has generated more than 500BTC in secondary market volume and is quickly gaining awareness among some of the biggest NFT players who are desperately seeking new innovations in the digital asset space. We break down with Ev his experience since launch and his motivations behind the creation itself, as well as future plans.

    Topics:
    First up, who is Ev and how did they get into the web3 space
    Next, WhAT are NatCats and what makes them different?
    and Finally, break down with Ev his experience since launch and his motivations behind the creation itself, as well as future plans

These guys are among the most down to earth individuals in all of crypto. They have interesting guests. They discovered Bitmaps before anyone else. By the way Bitmaps minted out in 17 days, that’s roughly 800,000 mints! And these guys are knowledgeable about the metaverse! Keep it up!

Crypto Intro - Audio Quality increase Episode 7

I keep hearing about bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies so when I looked them up to learn more, I kept seeing nothing but super technical conversations explaining what blockchain is. Listening to these guys give their own explanations on what crypto is and how it works in a relatable way has been a change of pace. I can almost explain this stuff to my own mom!

My only complaint is their audio quality. Luckily if you stick through all the way to episode 7, their audio quality drastically increases - no more background noises!. Great job and keep it up!
