John Crain - SuperRare: Ushering In The NFT Art Revolution - Zima Red ep 85
My guest today is John Crain. John is a co-founder and CEO of SuperRare Labs which is the entity that created SuperRare - One of the top NFT art platforms in the world.
John has an amazing background - he is a self taught coder, dove deep into bitcoin, discovered ethereum, found out about NFTs, had a passion for art and joined ALL of that together, to launch SuperRare in early 2018.
We go all throughout the history of SuperRare, the trials and tribulations of being a founder in an emergent industry and the almost absurd conviction it takes to build. It is really inspiring to hear Johns story and it makes you understand the amount of conviction and grit that is needed to create something as successful as SuperRare
We also discuss the team's pathway to decentralize the platform from SuperRare to the SuperRare DAO. I dont want to give too much away but hearing the vision where anyone can have input into the evolution of the platform is remarkable.
If you love art, NFTs and motivating stories well then you have to check out this episode
Please enjoy my conversation with John Crain.

AG - DAOs: The Future of Work - Zima Red ep 82
My guest today is AG. AG is a full-time DAO member at the Index Co-op. Index Co-op is a decentralized autonomous asset manager. Anyone who has listened to my previous episode with Dark Forest will know the power of Index Co-Op but by speaking with AG it opened up even more doors on what is possible with DAOs. After speaking with both Dark Forest and AG I am even more convinced that DAOs will play a huge role in the future of work.
I feel like AG was born to be in a DAO, hearing his background from working and living in multiple countries, working in the finance industry and diving deep into crypto, it seems like the stars have aligned with his current work with DAOs.
If you want to learn about the future of online cooperation, coordination and work, then you can't miss this episode.

Kijun Seo - Building Nine Chronicles: Open-Source Game Owned & Governed By The Users - Zima Red ep 81
My guest today is Kijun Seo. Kijun is a co-founder of Planetarium which is the company behind the game Nine Chronicles. Nine Chronicles is wild. A completely open-source, decentralized RPG game built on their own blockchain and governed by the users.
Kijun has an incredible story and background ranging from a deep interest in art to being a game developer working on multiple types of projects. This unique background definitely had an impact on the formation of Nine Chronicles - because the entire ethos of the platform is to empower users and give them nearly unlimited creative freedom
I feel like this episode is a sneak peek into the future of gaming.
Not only encouraging users to create their own user-generated content but rewarding them for doing so and leaving it up to the community on whether or not to include that content into the actual gaming experience. An unbelievable concept that would have simply been impossible a few short years ago.
If you want a sneak peek in the future then you have to check out this episode
Please enjoy my conversation with Kijun
