Smart contracts make crypto programs composable, like building blocks, writes @ljxie. It's one of the most powerful aspects of crypto and isn't talked about enough. future.a16z.com/how-composab…

1/ Very excited for Scalar to back @kermankohli & @arcxmoney bringing reputation to DeFi using on-chain activity. This is going to be a critical component of DeFi used for providing new opportunities (low collateral loans, high yield farms, governance, airdrops, recruiting, etc)

Highly recommend this documentary about how NFT play-to-earn games like @AxieInfinity are enabling people in the Philippines to earn a living wage. These stories of how crypto can make an impact were why we were so excited to back @YieldGuild at Scalar redirect.invidious.io/watch?v=Lg5C2EbY…
