57:19 Youtube Bullish on NFTs
I'm bullish on NFT's.
I believe play-to-earn is the next major gaming model, as well as an open market for in-game digital items; most in-game assets are illiquid, which is insane to me. All of this will change long-term through blockchain and NFT's. It's self-evident.

1:18:42 Can’t Fork NFTs
Massively underrated aspect of the NFT boom on Ethereum:
Scamcoin copychains like tron, bsc, eos, whatever the fuck, can’t clone our NFTs on their chains. No Maker clones, no Venus or pangolin, no pancake swap.

1:21:30 Early vs. Late
Quick investment 🧵
Probably one of the best investing 'abilities' is to recognize trends ahead of time, find talent, etc etc. Like, if you knew BTC or ETH or punks were gonna blow up, awesome. You made $$$. But that's really, really hard. I also think there's a second
