Sentiment around L2’s to Bitcoin seem to be rapidly declining, are they all scams afterall?! We then discuss the upcoming Royals mint and explain why this isn’t like a typical Ordinal collection.

    210. TBR - Redacted Launch Delay Explained | The State of Bitmap

    We recap the events of the last week leading up to what was supposed to be the Redacted launch. After the testing results the Mscribe team felt the need to delay the launch another week to refine the Blockpad experience and address minting issues. We walk through the individual tests and talk about a major debacle we had to overcome. We then discuss the process of Blockpad minting and speculate on the future evolution of it. 
    Afterwards we reflect on the previous bear cycle and identify the similarities between then and now. Also, we discuss Bitmap and it’s stagnant state, emphasizing the need for more developers to step in to push the ecosystem forward.

    209. TBR - Memecoin and Influencer Toxicity | Can DMT Overcome Web3 Bleak Sentiment?!

    209. TBR - Memecoin and Influencer Toxicity | Can DMT Overcome Web3 Bleak Sentiment?!

    Will and Iman discuss the current state of crypto markets and the mass delusional state backing the importance of meme culture and the dissolution of utility driven initiatives in web3. Ultimately are meme influencers and tokens hurting the crypto space as a whole? Or is this just a separate sector of importance that has no influence on the progression of web3 innovation and potentially will be used for good to drive more interest and participants toward projects with more substance. 
    We then discuss the importance of DMT and non-arbitrary tokens and how they can potentially influence market sentiment given wider adoption. In a market where inspirational innovations are largely lacking, can the idea of Bitcoin data utilization for token generation captivate the minds of the people similar to how early day NFTs did?

    208. TBR - How Sovryn is Building a True-to-Bitcoin L2 Ecosystem | Interview w/ Edan Yago

    The L2 and DeFi discussion in relation to Bitcoin are perhaps some of the most important ones when determining the future of Bitcoin. It is clear Bitcoin will not be able to scale into the future, regardless of how much robust innovation we add to it through metaprotocol design. 
    However, ecosystem contributors such as Sovryn are working diligently to implement some of the cutting edge in Bitcoin scaling technologies to create favorable environments for development. We discuss with a core contributor to Sovryn, Edan Yago, the technical challenges in rolling out this type of infrastructure and break down the comparisons between existing side chains to Bitcoin which do not consider the same trust minimizing components. 
    The conversation explores many interesting facets to Bitcoin development and considers the reality of Bitcoin entering into a phase shift that renders all other chains redundant as Bitcoin infinite scalability becomes a reality as rollup technology becomes solidified.
    Topics:
    First up, How is Edan Yago and how did they get into the web3 space
    Next, Yago sheds light on the concepts of the trilemma of decentralization, scalability, and expressivity that the crypto community grapples with
    Then, discuss with a core contributor to Sovryn, Edan Yago, the technical challenges in rolling out this type of infrastructure

High Integrity High Intelligence

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!
