048 - Jesse Buonanno: Card Games, Crypto Currencies, and the Future of Digital Assets
What can we learn when we add Blockchain to Loot Boxes?
Pokemon, Magic The Gathering, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Counter strike, and Fortnite. All games that have found a new way to extract money from players through the randomness and excitement ofcard packs and loot boxes. But wherever there's profit, you can find cheaters, counterfeiters, and all sorts of other nefarious agents. And even then, whatever you buy is still trapped in the game. Fortunately Jesse Buonanno sees a different path forward. One where you can buy, sell, and truly own your digital assets while protecting against the less honest among us. Listen in as he shares a vision of the future of how we buy, sell, and trade.
