In this episode of Ventures, my guest Mike Anderson (https://twitter.com/mikeyanderson) and I discuss the latest updates with BanyanDAO (https://www.BanyanDAO.xyz), scaling DAOs, and NFT strategies for product managers. We also talk about management and operations nuances in DAOs vs. traditional organizations, the Yuga Labs Otherdeeds drop last weekend, the phenomenon of dynamic NFTs that change based on interactions, and the steps you can take (and should take!) to get more involved with BanyanDAO.
