Introducing Alphi: Transparency and trusted information for the NFT community :: with Jesse Bryan
In this episode of Ventures, my guest Jesse Bryan (https://twitter.com/jessebryan) and I discuss his new project, Alphi (https://twitter.com/alphixyz). Alphi’s vision is to be a source of trusted and transparent information in the NFT community to help collectors “do their own research” effectively. We talk about the background and motivation for the project, why trusted information is so hard to find, analogies to information being shared from public companies, and more details about Alphi’s product roadmap and timeline.
1:31 - Episode tee-up from Will, commentary on the NFT space, people who are actually building are shipping new projects daily….it’s hard to keep up.
2:06 - Background of the idea where Alphi came from, information silos, unfair access to information, etc..

12:35 - Alphi helps protect non-Web3 native people… it’s a source of trust.
13:31 - Commentary about the amount of alpha buried within Twitter Spaces, discords, etc.. very small number, not falling into the same traps of Web 2
15:00 - “The more you give, the more you have” // Helping people who are working a normal job swinging a hammer
