NFTs are transforming the game for creators. At Real Vision's Takeover event in Las Vegas, Raoul Pal got a sneak peek at what Timbaland and Ape-in-Productions are building on top of their Bored Apes. This creative work is only possible because Bored Ape holders own commercial rights, whereas other NFT project owners, such as Crypto Punks, do not. The Defiant's Cami Russo and Robin Schmidt also cover the recent lull in DeFi with Raoul. The space has struggled to recover from last month's highs, and everyone feels a bit deflated. Could this lull have anything to do with regulators' shared statement signaling the crypto industry might be un-banked? Or perhaps it's connected to comments from politicians like Elizabeth Warren that "DeFi is the most dangerous part of the crypto world"? This episode is this year's final RVTD weekly wrap-up -- but fear not! We will be back in the new year. Stay tuned. Recorded on December 15, 2021.
