When the web3 community, OnChainMonkey, was first brought to my attention, I wasn’t just intrigued; I was captivated by its unique blend of innovation, community, and impact. Here are the 20 compelling reasons that drew me in, capturing both my heart and my mind, ultimately solidifying my decision to join this revolutionary movement and community. Please note that no legal, financial or investment advice is given in this post. Always do your own due diligence.
#1: The founders of OnChainMonkey bring a wealth of experience from various industries.
Co-Founder, Danny Yang, also founded the Stanford Bitcoin Meetup in 2013, MaiCoin (Taiwan’s largest cryptocurrency exchange), and Blockseer, an early blockchain analytics firm. Blockseer’s clientele included the FBI, US Secret Service, and DHS. Danny holds a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University and a degree in Chemistry and Physics from Harvard University.
Co-Founder Amanda Terry has 20 years of digital and business development leadership experience and is also the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Metagood along with being the Managing Partner of ACTAI Ventures.
Co-Founder Bill Tai has 23 of his startups become listed companies and is an angel backer of 3 of the top 10 on “CNBC’s 50 Top Disruptor List for 2022” which includes #3 Lineage Logistics, #4 Canva, and #9 Dapper Labs. Together their combined experience is a valuable asset to the OCM community, providing insights, leadership, and a vision that sets OCM apart from every single other project in the space.
#2: OnChainMonkey made history as the first-ever 10,000-piece collection to be inscribed onto the Bitcoin blockchain. The inscription number, 20219, is significant as it reflects the original year and month of OCM’s creation. This historic move not only preserves the legacy of OnChainMonkey in the immutable ledger of the Bitcoin blockchain but also showcases the innovative spirit and pioneering ethos of the OCM community.
#3: Legal Perspective and Community Learning: As a lawyer with a keen interest in web3, being involved with leaders in the community, like those in the OnChainMonkey community, is crucial for continuous learning and helping others navigate the complexities of this new decentralized world. Engaging with OCM keeps me abreast of the latest technological developments, while also providing insight into the interests and demands of the thriving web3 community. This dual approach not only enhances my legal acumen but also positions me as a knowledgeable and valuable resource in the ever-evolving landscape of web3 technology.
#4: Leveraging the DAO for Collaborative Governance: OnChainMonkey has established a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) to allow for a more democratic and community-driven approach to decision-making. We’ve recently voted on and allocated from our DAO more than $1,000,000 to migrating digital assets to the Bitcoin blockchain.
