EP46 S2 – The Future of Gaming on the Blockchain

The Future of Gaming on the Blockchain

The GameFi space is a huge, evolving space that’s constantly innovating as time goes on. Traditional game development studios are seeing the huge amount of investment capital in the space and are looking to see how the blockchain could solve some of the problems they face, or, enhance a players experience.

Niantic, the company behind Pokémon Go, starting to explore the blockchain

Earlier this year, Niantic had met the team behind SpotX Games, a Miami-based company that describes itself as “a web3 innovation studio for the real-world metaverse”. Hanke was taken with SpotX’s work and acquired the studio. “The potential for web3 is to move us back — to a more decentralized version of the internet,” Hanke said. “And to recapture some of that spirit and vision that was there when it started.”

Game developer Akatsuki announces $20 million web3 fund

Japanese entertainment and gaming firm Akatsuki said on Wednesday that it has raised a $20 million fund focused on investing in web3 projects. The fund, dubbed Emoote, will look to back startups working on projects in GameFi, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse, Akatsuki said in a press release. The name Emoote was chosen to signal that NFT consumption is based on “emotional values,” Akatsuki added.

EP44 S2 – Big Bulls In A Bear Market

Big Bulls in a Bear Market

We are in the midst of a bear market that is giving some flashbacks to 2018, yet even though crypto and stocks are down, there seems to be a lot of money flowing from big investors and big companies in the DeFi space.

 

Why is Big Money Flowing During a Bear Market?

On Tuesday, Coinbase became the first crypto-focused company to be included in Forbes Fortune 500, pulling $7.8 billion in revenue for the 2021 fiscal year. Projects like ZenLedger and Babel Finance are raking in huge capital investment. But it still begs the question: why are we seeing such big crypto companies doing well or getting funding while in the midst of a bear market?

 

Sam Bankman Fried Says he could Spend up to $1 Billion in Next Presidential Election

Sam Bankman-Fried says he could spend up to $1 billion or more in the 2024 election, which would easily make him the biggest-ever political donor in a single election. Speaking to Jacob Goldstein on his podcast “Whats You Problem?”, Sam said he expects to give “north of $100 million” in the next presidential election and that he has a “soft ceiling” of $1 billion if candidates like Donald Trump were to run.

 

WWOC: Someone Stole Seth Green’s Bored Ape, Which Was Supposed To Star In His New Show

What we cover in this episode:

  • Coinbase Becomes First Bitcoin Company Among Fortune 500
  • Crypto asset manager Babel Finance reaches $2B valuation
  • ZenLedger Raises $15M to Expand Crypto Tax Products
  • Andreessen Horowitz has launched a $4.5bn cryptocurrency fund for investing specifically into crypto companies
