One of our core beliefs is the acceleration of experimentation in crypto. We believe that continuously testing novel incentive designs will lead to better results in the future. That being said, not every mechanism is going to work.

Today, we set out to understand what will work in a sustainable way going forward from the perspective of Jordi Alexander.

Jordi is the founder of a trading firm Selini capital, an ‘Alchemist’ at Mantle Network, a podcast host, as well as a champion chess and poker player. We discuss positive sum games in crypto, as well as the current zeitgest of token launches and community building in crypto, Eigenlayer launch and restaking, as well as Jordi’s passion project within the Mantle ecosystem.

Join Andy and Jordi for an enjoyable conversation about the evolution of incentives and game theory in crypto today.
