Ben, Ryan, Cassidy, and Ceora talk about Cryptoland, “the first physical crypto island,” which has drawn fyre (oops, fire) from people trying to figure out whether it’s a real project, a parody, or a scam.

Ben, Ryan, Cassidy, and Ceora talk about Cryptoland, “the first physical crypto island,” which has drawn fyre (oops, fire) from people trying to figure out whether it’s a real project, a parody, or a scam. From there, the team talks about the crypto world, how its reputation has suffered from associations with less-than-savory players, and how the blockchain concept has evolved from Bitcoin to Solana.

Episode notes:

The Twitter thread that brought Cryptoland to the team’s attention.

Ceora wonders whether participants in a hypothetical, decentralized version of YouTube (a YouTube-like dApp) would need coding skills to contribute meaningfully.

Why is Ethereum so expensive and so congested?

Ben outlines how Solana has become the fastest-growing blockchain in the world by evolving the Ethereum concept to make it more scalable and less congested.
