Episode 30 • 🔭 Fidelity, Decentraland & the State of the dApp

This week we’re checking back in with some of the decentralised applications we’ve covered in the last year to see how they’ve been progressing.

From Aragon‘s decentralised autonomous organisations through to Decentraland, the blockchain virtual world and Everipedia, the blockchain’s answer to Wikipedia.

Before we get to that we cover a bunch of the fortnight’s biggest news, including Fidelity’s crypto platform, Tesla’s China land grab and Google’s crazy new call screening feature.

Enjoy!
