Back for another episode of your favorite crypto podcast, I’m joined by Bew to talk to the big brain himself, Pacman of Blur. If you don’t know Blur, your head must be buried deep inside the sand because it is the hottest, and most controversial, NFT marketplace to recently hit the scene. In this episode, we discuss why Pacman decided to build Blur, and as an NFT trader where he felt other marketplaces such as OpenSea fell short. Of course, we get into all the ins and outs of the controversies, misconceptions, and FUD around Blur and how it is affecting the NFT landscape. The tokenomics of Blur is a point of interest as we discuss how projects such as Blur can use tokens to help steal market share and create stickiness for their own platform. Getting into the technical side of things, we talk about the decisions around building an orderbook-style liquidity model for Blur and how this model affects how NFTs are seen and traded by collectors and traders alike. Alongside this discussion, the realization comes that Blur has shined a light on the different types of NFT market participants, including some that were hidden in the shadows to many. It wouldn’t be a good NFT chat without discussing royalties, so we get into the history of royalties within NFT marketplaces, Blur’s stance on NFT royalties, and philosophical and personal musing on the value and future of royalties. This was an incredible episode that you don’t want to miss. Tune in for all the info and alpha.
