Cryptoeconomics wouldn't be what it is today without Simon de la Rouviere. An artist and early Ethereum developer, he's best known for his role crafting the original ERC-20 token specification, meme markets, and token curated registries.

In this episode, we delve into CHAZ + autonomous zones, South Africa's water crisis and statue controversy, the ERC-20 origin story, how Simon was radicalized by Dogecoin, and the importance of communities, optimism, and proper incentive design - in blockchain networks, 2020, and beyond.
