Ep. 352 - Deep Dive on IOTA, w/ founder Dom Schiener
Play • 42 min
In this episode of CRYPTO 101, brought to you by Gods Unchained, we sat down with Dominik Schiener from IOTA to talk about one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects going on in the world, the IOTA Tangle. If the Ethereum blockchain is like a coal power plant, the Tangle is a nuclear reactor core.

Dominik gives us insights into the challenges of decentralizing something this unique and technically complex, as well as building out business development on the human side. We’re reminded that a project of such large scale can’t be compared to pretty much anything else in the crypto world, and will take a lot of time before it essentially acts as the underpinning to smart cities and smart roads of the future.

One potential concern is something this amazing would be stolen or copied before it could really launch, but Dominik eased these concerns, and assured us the thousands of blockchain patents now held by Bank of America and Microsoft will not impede or impact what IOTA is building.

Many people have heard about Direct Acyclic Graphs before in the blockchain industry, but the Tangle is a different variation of that, and we learn what those differences are in this episode.

Listen in to see what all is being built on the Tangle and what household brands you know are already partnering with IOTA.

Meet the CEO trying to convince every multi-billion dollar insurance fund to buy bitcoin
Bitcoin investment firm NYDIG raised $50 million in October, quadrupled its clients and life insurance company MassMutual purchased a minority stake in the firm. This came about because bitcoin is transitioning to a predominantly institution-owned asset, according to NYDIG CEO Robert Gutmann.  MassMutual made a $5 million equity investment in NYDIG last December, as well as a $100 million bitcoin investment for its general investment account through NYDIG. On today's episode of The Scoop, Gutmann said this event could open the floodgates for insurance giants to get in on bitcoin. “You are going to see a lot of dominoes fall after this," he said. Based on the set of macro circumstances 2020 presented, insurance companies are starting to question whether they can go forward only buying corporate credit to make good on policies, according to Gutmann.  "Over some number of years, it's hard for me to imagine it is not all of them [investing in bitcoin]," he said. "If MassMutual can get there from a diligence perspective so can the next one...It's definitely coming." He also sees publicly-traded companies following in the footsteps of Square and MicroStrategy. Both firms allocated a portion of their balance sheets to bitcoin.  In Gutmann's view, these companies have a "fiduciary duty to consider whether holding 100% of your assets in dollars is in the best interest of your shareholders." "Reasonable people can have different opinions about that, but I personally don’t think only Jack and only Michael and no one else is going to do a cold analysis of that and not come to that conclusion," he said. On today's episode of the Scoop, Gutmann also touched on: Why he expects more insurance companies will enter the crypto space over time How the MassMutual deal came to be Why public companies are interested in bitcoin and how the adoption narrative for public companies is similar to that of insurance firms Why his institutional clients are only interested in bitcoin  NYDIG's M&A strategy.

Axie Infinity & the blockchain gaming play to earn revolution
Axie Infinity is a Pokémon-inspired blockchain-based digital pet universe where players can earn tokens through gaming. Players can battle, collect, breed, and build a kingdom for their pets. Like CryptoKitties, Axies are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) represented as cryptographically unique characters that can’t be replicated. And like Pokémon, they are born to battle. While Axie can be just a game, it has built a strong social network, passionate community, and emerging jobs platform due to the play to earn opportunities it is generating. Guest: Jeff Zirlin Why you should listen: Jeff grew up playing games like Neopets, Pokémon, and World of Warcraft. “I played so much WOW that my parents sent me to boarding school,” he says. “I’ve always been a collector. As I kid my dad and I would collect fossils and insects. And as a lifelong gamer, I’m a digital collector as well, so I was predisposed to be interested in blockchain gaming.” The blockchain gaming play to earn revolution started to gain traction after it emerged that a large community of players in the Philippines was earning money playing Axie Infinity. Jeff says "Most game companies sell in-game resources, items, and upgrades. With Axie there's an in-game resource that you need to create more Axies and it's called the love potion. So most game developers would sell this love potion, and people would pay for it. In Axie we don't sell it ourselves, the only way that love potions can be created is by people playing the game. Players who have big Axie collections need the love potion to breed Axies and have to buy the token from a liquidity pool on UniSwap or from Binance. So players can earn a basic income and we've seen that with the rise in value of ETH, this can appreciate significantly.” Key takeaway: The power of blockchain games is that they're becoming more than games. They're becoming places that we can live, work, and play. The eventual vision is to create a Metaverse similar to Ready Player One where people spend the majority of their time. “We believe in a future where work and play become one,” says Jeff. “And we believe in empowering our players and giving them economic opportunities.” To do this the Axie team is committed to aligning the incentives of the Axie community. Players can earn the AXS governance token. The token economics were designed by Delphi Digital. Delphi Digital has invested a significant amount of capital in buying several extremely rare Mystic Axies. If Axie Infinity continues to gain traction Mystic Axies will grow in value in the future. Jeff says “We’re seeing the rise of Mystic Axies and other NFTs as a true asset class. This trend accelerated when Delphi Digital picked up some of the rarest Axies in the game, like quadruple Mystics, triple Mystics. You can think of Mystics as rare and valuable skins. It makes sense that there's a lot of interest around NFTs and it makes sense because we live in a digital world.” Supporting links: Axie Infinity Delphi Digital on Axie Leverj Jeff on Twitter Andy on Twitter Brave New Coin on Twitter Brave New Coin If you enjoyed the show please subscribe to the Crypto Conversation and give us a 5-star rating and a positive review in whatever podcast app you are using.
