As I have a week-old newborn, I asked John if we could go back to basics for this episode and talk about something easy. Well, to the question “why do you believe in NFTs?”, I could answer that even in my fatigue-drunk state.
Token Gamer and NFT Insider have decided to combine forces to launch a WAX-centric, weekly podcast, WAX Lyrical. John Nichols of NFT Insider and I will discuss a new topic every week, as well as feature special guests in the near future. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or the NFT Insider Discord or Twitter.
In last week’s episode, we tackled a heavier and more difficult topic: “How to Navigate a Crypto Dip”. This week, it’s much lighter and it became impassioned almost instantly.
Episode 11: Why Do We Believe in NFTs?
This question, in a variety of forms, has cropped up in several podcast episodes so far. While both John and I have given brief answers, we decided to go deeper into our motivations, our beliefs, and our history in the space.
The regular listeners may know, but I got into crypto in a backwards order: I didn’t buy Bitcoin or Ethereum (that came much later), I bought WAX and Enjin — two blockchain gaming-centric coins. The financial world fascinates me, but where cryptocurrencies have my mind, blockchain has my heart.
From my first realization that I could own a skin, a weapon, or any in-game item, I dived in head-first. It was a solution to a problem I thought to be insurmountable, and yet, that was only the beginning. The applications of blockchain and NFTs span every nook and cranny — or at least have the potential to — and I believe it will touch damn near every industry.
So, why do you believe in NFTs? Join the #podcast-chat channel in our Discord and give us your answer.
We’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify that you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy WAX Lyrical. This helps both our podcast and the WAX ecosystem as a whole!
