Mapping the Emerging Non-Fungible Token Landscape

The current landscape of non-fungible tokens can be split into 4 groups: NFT publishers, NFT marketplaces, NFT infrastructure (as a term for tools to build NFT experiences with) and NFT resources. Let’s look at each of the groups:

Smart Contract Orchestration Patterns

Orchestration of smart contracts is a problem that repeats itself in most projects, and which most projects implement from scratch. Often the solutions implemented are nearly identical to each other.

While a canon emerges that we all can use to implement orchestration safely and efficiently, please use the examples in this article to understand and implement a solution for your requirements. Use the code in the example repository if it suits you.

4 Tips to Getting a Job as a Bootcamp Grad

This is seriously impressive, completely turned it into a system

Development

Why “no code operations” will be the next big job in tech

Speed. These solutions can be built in a tenth the time, and iterated on even faster. Sure, no code tools aren’t as extensible as code, but if you stick to what they’re good at, you can build incredibly fast.

Specificity. The more exciting difference, in my opinion, is the specificity of these solutions. When the person who feels the pain is also empowered to build the solution, the result is magical and utterly unique. Mass market software forces us to conform to a specific way of working. No longer. With no code tools, you can build a workflow that matches how you actually do your work.

3 mental models that helped a young PM

  • Reversible-Irreversible Decision Analysis
  • Information Asymmetry

A golden rule for every communication would be to follow this structure:

  1. Start with the context, or the why. Why are you reaching out? What context should they have before they dive in?
  2. Outline the asks. Given that context, what inputs do you need from them? What outcomes/ actions do you expect?
  • Fact-Observation-Proposal
  1. You start by stating objective facts or evidence that can be independently assessed or verified, i.e x% of your users don’t take a desired action, or your users are providing some negative feedback.

2. You present a few observations or hypotheses based on the factual evidence

3. You then outline a proposal (or better yet, ask for proposals) that can help address the problem.
