    Sillytuna - The OG Who Sold A Punk For $12m AND Can See The Future - Zima Red ep 99

    My guest today is Sillytuna. Sillytuna has to be the OG-iest OGs out there. He is a game developer who got involved in bitcoin in 2012 and hasn't looked back since

    He is the creator and founder of numerous different projects and has done some really exciting things. From starting an NFT card game back in 2016, to his new project called Soulcast, and in 2021 he even sold an alien Cryptopunk for $12m dollars.

    This episode is like a masterclass in the history of crypto, NFTs, crypto gaming and what the future of this industry holds. It was an absolute pleasure speaking with Sillytuna because his past experiences can teach us a lot about what to expect going forward.

    Before diving in, I will leave you with an exciting quote “We’ve got decades to go. We are the internet in 1994.”

    With that, please enjoy my conversation with Sillytuna

    Will Weinraub - Building Cryptoys, The Disney Of The Metaverse - Zima Red ep 98

    Will Weinraub - Building Cryptoys, The Disney Of The Metaverse - Zima Red ep 98

    My guest today is Will Weinraub. Will is the founder of On-Chain studios which is creating Cryptoys. Cryptoys is an exciting NFT toy platform, that is creating interactive NFTs, play-to-earn experiences and much more.

    This was an amazing conversation, Will has deep experience as a founder, tinkerer and builder - having started and sold multiple businesses

    His first foray as an entrepreneur was at 13 years old making a wrestling fan website for a solid $100 bucks. Fast forward some years, Will created another startup called LiveNinja which was then acquired by a telecom company

    That is just a small sneak peek into our conversation but we dive into a ton of different topics like how to start your own business, the challenges that founders face, and of course Cryptoys which after hearing Will talk about it, I think is going to be huge.

    If you want to hear some stories from a top founder and about some leaked alpha, then you cant miss this episode

    Please enjoy my conversation with Will

    Alex Gausman - Creating The Decentralized NFT Liquidity Protocol & Exchange With NFTX - Zima Red ep 97

    Alex Gausman - Creating The Decentralized NFT Liquidity Protocol & Exchange With NFTX - Zima Red ep 97

    My guest today is Alex Gausman. Alex is the founder and lead contributor to NFTX which is NFT liquidity protocol and decentralised NFT exchange

    Alex dove deep into crypto in 2017 after discovering Ethereum and was attracted to it by the idea it could become this alternative financial system and economy.

    It wasn't until the summer of 2020, after Alex was exploring and investing in the NFT ecosystem, that he decided to create NFTX because of the clear liquidity issues he was experiencing

    Initially Created as a protocol to create cryptocurrency that was backed by NFTs, NFTX has evolved from offering NFT index funds to a full blown NFT DEX.

    It is clear to me that Alex is an amazing builder who is identifying problems in the ecosystem and creating solutions for them. Something that we should all aspire to do

    Rich - Are You Ready Player DAO? Master Class in Play-to-Earn - Zima Red ep 95

    My guest today is Rich. Rich is the lead at ReadyPlayerDAO which is a large and successful play-to-earn guild. If you want a masterclass in all things Play-to-Earn then you have come to the right episode.

    Rich is an expert having managed his own Play-to-Earn guild before expanding it into ReadyPlayerDAO. On this episode you will learn all the different methods to generate returns from activities like breeding, battling and even future resource collection from digital land.

    I expect the Play-to-Earn economy to far surpass the global market for gaming, which is something like $200 billion dollars per year, as Play-to-Earn attracts both gamers and people that want to earn extra income. If you believe in this thesis as well then you can get started on your Play-to-Earn education now

    Please enjoy my conversation with Rich.
