Manifold Empowering Creators

Tommy plunged into web3 by joining Nifty Gateway in its early days, even though he didn't fully understand the technology at first. Onboarding many artists to their first NFT collection he realized not only the power of the tech, but the potential for building bridges. Taking another leap of faith, he then became Head of Partnerships at Manifold, the disruptive platform that is now empowering artists to curate their own on-chain collections.

Episode Important Links


Open Editions: Open Editions are NFTs that have an unlimited number of copies available for purchase. Unlike limited editions that have a fixed number of copies, open editions can be minted continuously. This means that anyone can purchase an open edition NFT at any time, and the number of copies in circulation can continue to increase indefinitely.

Smart-contract: A smart contract is a self-executing digital contract that automatically enforces the terms of an agreement between parties using computer code. Smart contracts are designed to facilitate, verify, and enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract without the need for intermediaries like lawyers or notaries. They are often used in decentralized applications built on blockchain technology.

Metadata: Metadata refers to data that describes other data. In the context of digital content, it often includes information such as the title, author, date created, file type, and other details that help describe and classify the content.

ERC1155: ERC-1155 is a standard for creating fungible and non-fungible tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows for the creation of multiple types of tokens within a single smart contract, making it more efficient and cost-effective.

ERC721: ERC-721 is a standard for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the Ethereum blockchain. Each ERC-721 token is unique and can represent a digital asset such as artwork, collectibles, or in-game items. They are used to verify ownership and provenance of these assets and can be bought, sold, or traded on various NFT marketplaces.

Tokenomics: Tokenomics refers to the study of the economic and business models that underlie the design and implementation of cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based assets, including their creation, distribution, and value proposition.

Ordinals: Information inscribed on satoshi - similar to the ERC-721 standard on Bitcoin.

Hot Wallet: A hot wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet that is connected to the internet and is used for storing and managing digital assets that need to be readily accessible for transactions. They are often used for smaller amounts of funds, while larger amounts are kept in cold storage for added security.

Ledger: A ledger is a decentralized and tamper-proof database that records all transactions in a blockchain network. It is maintained and updated by a network of nodes, ensuring transparency and security of the network. Ledgers are an essential component of many blockchain-based systems, including cryptocurrencies.
