    Metaverse Differentiation & Lisbon Hype

    Metaverse Differentiation & Lisbon Hype

    On this week's episode of MARS, Matthew & Rizzle kick things off showering Sho in shoooo [sic] much praise.

    Matthew specifically shouts out last week's Afties soliloquy about the "Infinite Pause" it felt like the majority of the crypto space was stuck in.

    The conversation jumps into a preview of the WIP this Thursday featuring the Italy-based metaverse project DVERSO that the Vipe crew introduced to all of us last month. DVERSO has been cooking up a cool metaverse project under the radar of a lot of folks, which led Matthew & Rizzle to ponder how (and if) all the metaverse projects that are currently out there can differentiate themselves and strategies that others can adopt in a world of ever increasing same-same-but-different metaverse projects.

    Right before signing off, Matthew downloads Rizzle on the latest crypto drama courtesy of Yuga Labs and their bungled attempt at launching the Larva Labs Artist Residency (that may have already been sunset?) that was set to feature a paid drop by the stellar artist Nina Chanel exclusively open to Punks holders, that, apparently, most Punks holders neither wanted nor appreciated.

    Avatar Funsies & Regulator Scaries

    On this week's episode of MARS, Matthew & Rizzle recap last week's WIP Meetup featuring the Vipe squad and a whole gang of freshly minted Grifter Squadies kicking ass, taking names, and racing one another over in DEVERSO, an immediately playable metaverse project that many found out about for the first time in real time during the WIP.

    That conversation transitioned into a meta discussion on the state of metaverse projects and demand, which in turn expanded into a (scary) discussion led by Matthew on potential threats facing crypto broadly that ended with Rizzle saying some magic words to minimize the Matt's worries. For now.

    Just don't eff it up. Please

    Just don't eff it up. Please

    On this week's episode of MARS, Matthew & Rizzle talk about the Grifter Squaddies drop on vipe.io brought to the metaverse by the legendary Toxsam. Fun fact: Matthew, Rizzle, and NonFunGerbil Luke all got a similar (but actually rather rare) Grifter Squaddie.

    After red-pilling Rizzle into scooping his squaddie, the conversation shifted to talking about a Brookhawk-inspired topic: Interface. The app that launched in 2023 is still around and pushing out updates, but many other projects have largely incorporated it's main functionality of following other wallets and tracking onchain transaction history as a feature.

    That led into a reflection on Cent, being too early when building something net-new in a burgeoning sector, the hair width's difference between succeeding and failing, and how we are ALL hoping the purple app doesn't eff it up.

    Memecoin Experiment No. 69 - Up.Army

    Memecoin Experiment No. 69 - Up.Army

    On this week's episode of MARS, Matthew & Rizzle kick things off talking about the background of the $SAFE airdrop and how folks can look into if they received an allocation (just check https://app.safe.global) before diving into a brand new experiment from the Cent team called Up.Army, or just Up for short.

    After giving a so-so breakdown of what Up and bonding curves are, Matthew called an audible and brought Cameron, co-founder of Cent, to give a better overview of what Up is and how to think about it.

    To round things out, Matthew & Rizzle give folks a quick preview of tomorrow's Cyberbrokers-themed WIP Meetup. Pro-tip: make sure you sign up to https://www.paradigmfound.com/ ahead of time.
