The idea of a “hard spoon” has been teased by various Ethereum projects for a couple years. Comos first introduced the term in 2017, and OmiseGO resurfaced the idea again as a maybe April Fool’s joke in 2018. While the concept of a “hard spoon” can be defined a few different ways, we will focus here on a single, narrow definition as it relates to tokens:

“A hard spoon occurs when two or more tokens from two or more projects, protocols, or blockchains merge together to create a new parent token, or “Spoon Coin,” which inherits the utility and properties…


A simple interface to connect your meToken with your ENS domain has been added to StakeOnMe.com. Now your community members can invest in you simply by sending ETH to your StakeOnMe.<YourDomain>.eth address. Instructions below.

Accessible dApps with ENS

The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) is the most user friendly ways to interact with Ethereum smart contracts and wallets today. ENS allows for anyone to register a human readable name, which can be used in lieu of the intimidatingly complex, default hexadecimal addresses.

For example, with ENS, if Bob wants to send Alice some ETH, he can just use Alice’s domain name instead of her full-length…


Born out of the Great Depression, the notion of self-issued credit was pioneered by alternative monetary theorist, E.C. Riegel, as a means to insulate one’s self from collective economic downturn. His idea — formed in the decades proceeding the most significant decline of GDP in our nation’s history — was that productive entities (individuals and businesses) should learn to create their own money instead of relying solely on centrally-issued fiat.

“It is a remarkable fact that no constitution of any state, nor any declaration of human rights, has ever proclaimed the right of freedom of money issue.” — E.C. …


While attempting to fix a minor bug, we discovered our contract upgradability failed to confirm for meToken Instances due to the tx hitting the block gas limit. Individual meTokens have been redeployed and re-collateralized with the operating funds of the meToken project team members. Users can now use StakeOnMe once again. Functionality for DAOs is temporarily disabled.

What Happened?

In the first week of launch, a number of users and community members reported on the fact that meToken names were not registering correctly on Etherscan or in many of their favorite Ethereum wallets. …


meToken is a new primitive that allows Aragon DAOs to create thier own currency, which we call “Synthetic Labor.” An Aragon DAO’s meToken can be used to pay for DAO services by external community members, and it can be used as a speculative financial vehicle for investors. meTokens are designed to create new revenue streams for Aragon DAOs and to assist them in discovering market-fit for their operations.

Coordination with Aragon

Aragon is one of the most popular DAO frameworks in the Ethereum ecosystem today. Its tools are designed to empower individuals with the ability to self-organize in unstoppable ways. …

By injecting True Ownership into blockchain-enabled video games, game studios no longer have to compete for the attention of players in traditional ways. Studios can generate revenue even when players aren’t playing their games.

Make no mistake, developers build games to make money.

We all have a little Wario in us. Even game developers.

And there is currently only one way to make money: compete for players’ attention. This is a very basic problem that every studio understands. Designers build addictive gameplay mechanisms to attract new players and sticky economics models to keep existing players from leaving.

Try as they might, game makers will never succeed in achieving a perfect retention…


Introducing concepts of Decentralized Intellectual Property, or #DeIP

There’s an exceptionally pervasive theme within the blockchain gaming and NFT community that if (A) we begin to tokenize digital assets in our virtual worlds, like video games, then (B) somehow it will lead to a future that looks something like Ready Player One’s “The Oasis.” The problem is: there is a major gap between these two ideas, and nobody has provided a roadmap for how, why, or if this could actually happen (let alone if blockchain should even be involved).

This post is an attempt to outline such a roadmap.

Somehow true ownership of virtual items leads to a crazy virtual reality future… But how?
