Micah Johnson, artist and creator of Aku Inc, joins Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Delphi Digital, on Kelly's series on community tokens to discuss his journey into the NFT space and his popular character Aku. From a young age, Johnson’s sole ambition in life was to play in Major League Baseball. Once he achieved this goal, he discovered a passion for painting and art. Upon retirement, he discovered the chaotic yet nascent world of NFTs and became immersed. Johnson has since pioneered the hugely successful Aku series, which centers around a young astronaut who explores different worlds and is intended to be an inspirational beacon for young people. Kelly and Johnson discuss this journey into NFTs and social token communities, and they brainstorm several directions in which these trends could develop. Filmed on October 12, 2021.

How Blockchain Democratizes Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate has always been a rich man’s asset class. Ed Nwokedi, founder and CEO of RedSwan CRE, joins Nick Halaris, president of Metros Capital, to discuss how that is changing. The digitization of real estate is well underway, as will be evident to viewers who have been following Halaris’s interview series. Nwokedi and RedSwan have brought a niche to the tokenized real estate space by focusing on commercial real estate, even allowing investors to purchase shares of real estate with Dogecoin! As realtors know, commercial real estate is an entirely different beast from residential. Nwokedi sees a return to normal on the horizon as countries begin opening up and people begin going back to work. This makes commercial property an attractive asset, which historically has been a stable source of returns on par with major stock indices. Nwokedi makes the case for increased stability within this asset class with the advent of tokenization, which will provide much-needed liquidity to the secondary market. Recorded on November 2, 2021.

Tascha Che: Layer-1s Are the New Nation States in Digital Economies
Tascha Che, macroeconomist and founder of Tascha Labs, predicts Layer-1 blockchains to be the big winners in crypto and examines how NFTs derive value. In her research into Layer-1 blockchains, Che was tired of hearing analysts attempt to value tokens like Solana, Cardano, and Ethereum based on old metrics like P/E ratios and future projected cash flow. This ignores the preeminent utility of what these projects aim to achieve, their value as monetary assets. Monetary value ties into her case for Layer-1 solutions to become the dominant investments in crypto. “All the layer-1 chains that we know today - Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, and so on - to me are providing the critical infrastructure to the metaverse, and they are sort of the new nation states in the new digital economy,” says Che. She stands firm in her belief that fiat currencies are on the way down, as is a common sentiment in the crypto community. It is this widespread devaluation which will continue to push average people to invest in crypto, especially in undeveloped countries. Che also discusses her recent NFT creations and explains her thoughts, more broadly, on how humans arbitrarily apply value. Interviewed by Ash Bennington on November 18, 2021.
