AVAILABLE TO REDEEM
Every new thing starts with an idea, a belief, or a passion. New ideas rarely come from nothing; they emerge from the things we love, are curious about, or inherit from other ideas that surround us. Read more in the new essay about creative process and how we create things.
After spending months working with modern artists and creators (small and big ones), it became pretty clear that they are not that much different from early/late-stage businesses.
Artists spend months and years finding their creator-market fit, creating, marketing, and monetizing their 'products.' So, are they really different?
I am a big believer that the biggest brands of the future might be individuals, rather than traditional companies. Yet, we are still not at that point, and the reason could be the "artistic" mindset.
Inspired by Paul Graham's "Startups in 13 Sentences," here are a few ideas on how those principles can help shift the 'artistic' mindset to a 'builder' mindset.
when I started HumanIPO around 3 years ago I never thought it would bring us where we are today.
We started as a two person startup building everything in a few hands, got featured in some of the worlds best media and TV, and more importantly, served to our community of 25k+ amazing creators, athletes, entrepreneurs, scientist, creators and many many others 🔥
Today, I’m excited to share that our team was working with incredible partners on something very special that would take HumanIPO and investing in people to the next level.⚡
If you want to be involved or learn more about how we are pioneering equity financing for creators, send me DM!
Also, check out some photos & videos from our recent community catch up in Los Angeles where I hosted over 100 amazing creators, music artists, investors and tech entrepreneurs.
Some thoughts on the upcoming merge 🧵
After Bitcoin's whitepaper release, Ethereum's merge is the most consequential event in crypto's history.
1/ PoW was the only reasonable mechanism to securely bootstrap the network at the time. It’s not a secret that any network economics works only when the ownership is sufficiently distributed among the participants.
2/ Moving to PoS was delayed for many many years, and I’m very optimistic to see how these changes would play out for a better future.
Evolution of the architecture of any blockchain network is always a trilemma between scalability, security, and decentralization.
3/ Transaction fees — everyone knows how ridiculously high it can be when the network is busy. Listing a new token pair on uniswap for $10k is NOT normal.
Transactions fees today make it impossible to build any REAL consumer app on ethereum.
4/ Sharding and scalability — as the number of network participants growing, the network should serve their needs.
In most cases scalability will require a higher centralization of the network as a tradeoff.
5/ Final thoughts.
There is no good or bad way from the technology point of view. The question is what makes ethereum really valuable for people -- a true decentralization and governance OR application layer and utility built on top of that.
