Broker chains and blockchains
In this week’s episode of Ventures, my guests Susie Kataoka, Norris Liu, and I discuss the origin story of Zebra Health, the work they are doing to bring transparency to the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) global market, starting a joint venture between their startups, distributing rapid antigen and antibody tests for COVID-19, and aspiring toward blockchain/Web 3.0 opportunities for any marketplace that involves brokering trust.
Two blockchain-related newsletters
Continuing the theme from last week, I’ve had a number of friends ask me for recommended resources to keep up with the blockchain world. In addition to https://www.coindesk.com/, of course, I’d highly recommend subscribing to the Figment and Staking Economy newsletters.
The reason why these two newsletters are notable (out of the zillions of blockchain-related resources out there) is because these teams have a front-row seat into the nuances of up-and-coming chains. That kind of perspective is extremely valuable compared to all the hype and misinformation there.
Have a great rest of your week!
