I’ve long aspired to release topical content relevant to the current crypto news cycle. But I never found a great way to pull that off. There are lots of podcasts with crypto bros shilling their unedited opinions on price movements or the latest ICOs, and I just didn’t want to go that route (especially since I don’t personally enjoy this content).
While contemplating this delimma, Eric Meltzer’s Proof of Work Newsletter arrived in my mailbox. What I appreciate about Eric’s Newsletter is that it isn’t filled with news hackery or thought pieces from Medium; instead, Proof Of Work includes updates directly from the makers behind top crypto projects. Proof of Work includes primary source material coming directly from founders, rather than third-party analysts.
So I approached Eric about doing a Monthly Proof of Work Audio wrap up. He said yes, so here we are.
In this episode we discuss:
- Major themes and trends amoung crypto projects for the month of August
- Our 6 favorite features and releases “shipped” from various engineering teams in the space
- Which crypto team has won “The Ship Award” … which is the monthly award we give to the project that has shipped the most in a given month
- Why asian exchanges are absolutely dominant right now
- Which crypto businesses are making money, and . . .
- What new developments we expect to see in September
Here’s a little bit of background on Eric Metlzer:
Eric is a partner at INBlockchain, China’s oldest and largest institutional cryptoasset and blockchain fund. To give you a sense of INBlockchain’s size and scope, consider that they announced a $1.6 Billion dollar fund with 30% coming from the Hong-Jo local government. And prior to that they already had a couple billion under management. If you want to learn more about Eric, check out Flippening Episode #17.
