  • Podcast Show Notes:

    Host Piers Kicks sits down for Episode 18 of Metaverse Musings with Justin Banon, the founder of Boson Protocol. The protocol is a pioneer of the concept of “dCommerce”, which aims to recreate the entire ecommerce stack independent of any centralized intermediaries. For the first time, natively digital value can be transacted for real world goods and services in an entirely trustless manner. We cover everything from where blockchain could meet simulation theory, to how Boson will enable a “digital highstreet” where users can shop for physical goods without ever breaking immersion or having to trust those with which they transact.

  • Host Piers Kicks sits down for Episode 16 of Metaverse Musings with Roham Gharegozlou the Founder & CEO of Dapper Labs who built Crypto Kitties and NBA Top Shot. Most recently, they launched a new chain built entirely from the ground up after being dissatisfied with the scaling solutions available.

  • Delphi Podcast Host Tom Shaughnessy hosts Psykeeper, the founder of Saffron Finance. Psykeeper shared his incredible story as an anonymous founder and the benefits of being anon. He also dove into how Saffron tranches risk for users, tranche dynamics, token econ plans and use cases, what the future holds and so much more.

    This was our first episode where a founder used a voice changer to protect his identity, and we are more than happy to host founders, known or anon, to share their stories.

    Saffron is a protocol for tokenizing on-chain assets, including contracts that otherwise impair access to utilized capital. Tokenized ownership of on-chain assets gives liquidity providers greater flexibility and uninterrupted access to their underlying collateral while enabling leveraged staking and bespoke risk management.

  • Co-hosts Jose Maria Macedo and Yan Liberman sit down with Azeem and Robert from Armor Finance. Armor Finance is a new project building a smart insurance aggregator for DeFi. Armor seeks to make DeFi safer by streamlining the insurance UX, providing a ‘Pay as you Go’ and ‘Only pay what you owe’ coverage for users across various protocols, starting with the majors but expanding coverage over time. We see them as the insurance “distribution” layer on top of the “underwriting” layer provided by NXM, similar to insurance brokers in the real world. Armor just launched their first products and yield farming initiatives this weekend and Yan and Jose take this opportunity to dig into what Armor is and their future plans. We hope you enjoy this conversation.

  • Chain Reaction Host Tom Shaughnessy hosts Teddy Woodward and Jeff Wu of Notional Finance.

    Notional is a protocol on Ethereum that facilitates fixed rate, fixed-term lending and borrowing of crypto-assets via a novel financial primitive called fCash. Fixed rate financing touches all corners of the modern financial markets. The majority of US debt is issued at fixed interest rates because they provide certainty and minimize risk for market participants. Notional brings this capability to the decentralized financial system on Ethereum and gives crypto users that same access to stable financing.

  • Chain Reaction Host Jose Maria Macedo sits down with Stani Kulechov - Founder & CEO of Aave. Aave is one of the leading DeFi protocols with nearly $3B in TVL and $4B in loans originated. Originally known as ETHLend, Aave launched its ICO in 2017 and unlike most, built through a brutal multi-year bear market that saw its price drop >90%. The team’s persistence was rewarded with a truly epic 2020 as TVL grew 1000x (from $300K to $3B) and market cap grow ~150x (from $10M to $1.5B). Most importantly, the team has continued to innovate at breakneck space, pioneering features such as flash loans, delegated credit lines, collateral swaps and entirely new governance structures.

    In this conversation, we skip over much of the now well-covered Aave back story and focus on covering new ground. We discuss things like:

    What makes a good protocol founder & CEO, What Stani looks for as an angel investor, How Stani sees the competitive landscape,Aave’s e-money license and plans to become a neobank,Aave’s biggest mistakes in 2020 and focuses for 2021,...and much more
