Choice. Like fish oblivious to their surrounding water, choice is another modern ”thing” we often take for granted. Free will, and the facility to do as we please and govern our own life, is what separates us, humans, from animals, trees, and rocks.

What is Tokenomics? Like many concepts in the crypto world, Tokenomics is an ambiguous concept with different interpretations, depending on whom you ask. In this series of “essays”, we will try to demystify, explain and present (as simply as possible) a framework for understanding and designing an optimal tokenomic model. We’ll examine the many filters we use, when assessing a project’s prospect, to better understand what are the building blocks. Finally, we will show how we bring together these blocks, to build and optimize an ecosystem’s Tokenomics.

It was played 500 million times by over 15 million Facebook users, which was, at that time, a massive success. The game consisted of 4 minigames focused on memory, math and spatial games to get a “brain score”. Once completed, a leaderboard showed both the player's Facebook photo plus core, and that of their nearest competitors and friends.

For many people, money and finance are loaded terms. Leading thinkers in both the financial and education fields have raised the interesting, yet perplexing query of why we still don’t offer financial education as part of everyone’s 12-year journey throughout the school system. Though it’s hard to imagine, not so long ago in the human evolution timeline, only the selected few knew how to read, write or use basic arithmetic.

Follow your passion. Such a cliché, right? If you watched some motivational videos in the past decade you must have encountered Steve Jobs’s commencement speech for Stanford’s graduating class of 2005. It was not long after Jobs had recovered from cancer, which gave the speech an even more epic effect. “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle”. Mic-drop.

The crypto industry is built upon a new, decentralized foundation whereby the code is the law. This allows innovation, in the form of new types of contracts, to replace the old, centralized system with its friction-prone, single point of failure. Code (compared to traditional agreements), enables much more creativity and flexibility to generate value. At the same time it’s open, which means the best talents in the world can take advantage, with tangible and immediate rewards for anyone who can identify a vulnerability.
