Podcast 394: what if you could invest in your favorite developer?
Open source software makes it easier for anyone to contribute to the health and growth of a project’s codebase. But how do you build a system where users and contributors can participate in the economic value being generated by an organization or platform? We chat with Bradley Miles and Sid Kalla, the co-founders of Roll, which is trying to create an API-first platform for creating tokens and markets that allow users to invest and share in the value of creators or communities they love.
You can learn more about Roll, which describes itself as blockchain infrastructure for social money, here.
