Narrative Watch: The Hunt for Crypto’s Killer App

0


Starting today, accredited investors will be able to partake of $13.5 million in tokenized bonds connected to the contract of Brooklyn Nets Point Guard Spencer Dinwiddie. The first-of-its-kind offering took months of negotiation with the NBA but marks a seminal moment for both crypto and the larger idea of «income share agreements.» 

In this podcast, we discuss how big a deal Dinwiddie’s offering is and whether income share agreements could be a breakout use case for crypto. We also discuss other contenders for “crypto killer app,” including under-collateralized DeFi loans and NFT-based games. Finally, we discuss whether crypto’s actual killer app has already arrived — in the form of using bitcoin to escape local political and economic controls.
