Hi all, BanyanDAO is holding its virtual Web3 Training Day this Friday from 9-5pm PDT. If you haven’t registered yet - or if you are curious about the speaker line-up and topics, check it out: https://www.banyandao.xyz/web3-product-manager-training-event
The reason why I’m so excited about Web3 is because it unlocks unparalleled opportunities for humans to flourish globally. This Friday, we will have an amazing set of discussions to help ramp you up quickly about topics such as DAOs, NFTs, DeFi, blockchains, metaverses, ERC-20 tokens, Layer 2s, smart contracts, and more. Rather than three months of confusing reading, you'll get it all in one day and will be able to ask questions real-time from industry experts.
I’ll see you there!
How to evaluate NFT Clubs
In this week’s episode of Ventures, my guest Jesse Bryan (who will be speaking at the event this Friday!) and I continue our conversation from Episode 89 to discuss multiple aspects of NFTs and NFT clubs. We talk about the history of NFTs, the differences between Moonbirds, Crypto Punks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, the important nuances of intellectual property ownership and licensing, airdrops, community, “staking” of NFTs, cybersecurity, and thoroughly evaluating a team and their roadmap before deciding where to spend your time and money.

DAO Tooling and Formation Frameworks
I’m working on a paper to suggest the best possible tooling stack and formation framework for DAOs. This will be mostly applicable to founding teams looking to build a Web3 product or service, but the principles will likely be more broadly applied.
I’ll share it with you all when the paper is ready for publication, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear from you. If you are involved in a DAO, what tooling are you using? What was the process by which your DAO formed and what would you change about it (as advice to future DAOs)?
Thanks in advance for any/all input. 🙏
Have a great rest of your week! (I’ll see you Friday)
