WTH with DAOs? (Part 2) - Perfunktory
Alright, time to get back to the question, What's the Hype with DAOs? In the last episode, we discussed what DAOs are, how do they work and why we need them. Plus, we took a quick look at the differences between DAOs and traditional organisations. For this podcast episode, we're going to get into more technical details, talk about the 'Original DAO', types of DAOs and different types of memberships. Let's begin! In today's episode, we discuss: 1. (01:28) Story of the 'Original DAO' 🏚 2. (03:11) Types of DAOs 🗂 3.

I hope you all are following your new year resolutions and I hope you continue to do so till at least February. Personally, I haven’t set any resolutions for this year because I started making the changes I wanted to implement this year from early December itself, but I can’t deny the boost in productivity that you get at the start of a new year. Everything seems possible and the year promises to be the best one ever. I hope it turns out to be a brilliant year for you, definitely one for the books! Before we move forward, I strongly urge all of you to take utmost care of yourself and your family since COVID cases are on the rise again. Hope that it does not get to the level of the second wave which was devastating. Take care and mask up!

WTH with DAOs? (Part 1) - Perfunktory
Did you hear about the DAO that tried to buy a rare copy of the US Constitution a few weeks back? They got outbid by Citadel's CEO in the auction but the way they managed to raise $40 million dollars was commendable and showed us all the power of Community and Twitter. But what exactly is a DAO and why do you see everyone talking about it these days? That brings me to the question, What's the Hype with DAOs? In today's episode, we discuss: 1. (02:08) What is a DAO? 🏢 2. (03:16) How do DAOs work? 🏋️‍♀️ 3. (04:05) Why do we need DAOs? 🤔 4.

Alright, I admit that I've been a little behind with the consistency of the podcast and the newsletter but guys, the shaadi season was upon us which actually was quite busy for me this year. But now we're back and we'll try to pick up the pace once again. December is the holiday month of the year, no? Just can't seem to get anything done and plus it's so cold so productivity goes down majorly.

WTH with The Great Attrition/Resignation? - Perfunktory
Did you know that a record number of employees are quitting or thinking about doing so? Let’s take a deep dive into what this is, why is this happening and how can companies make the best of this situation. Again, this is just a perfunktory take on the situation and covers the most important facts on the surface. I'm sure there are smaller details here and there that also contribute to this phenomenon taking place. That brings us to the question, What's the Hype with The Great Attrition or The Great Resignation? #18 - The Great Attrition/Resignation: What is the 'Big Quit'? 💼 - https://bit.ly/3kk7xd6 Welcome back to a brand new episode of What's The Hype? with Perfunktory. There was no newsletter issue this week since I still haven't finished writing on the topic I have selected. I can give you a hint that it's in the music industry and that's the field that I work in primarily so it's natural that the imposter syndrome sets in and it takes more time to do something than it usually should. I hope to have it done and complete by this Monday so you should have something in your inboxes.

WTH with Evergrande? - Perfunktory
There was a brief news on 11th November, 2021 that Evergrande, the second largest real estate developer in China, has officially defaulted on its bonds. It was unable to make the required interest payments of $148 million in time. Although there was a follow up to that news that they met a deadline to pay overdue interest on three US-dollar bonds before their grace period ended, a report said Thursday, signalling it had averted another potential default and triggering a rally in their shares. Evergrande was up 8.4 percent in Hong Kong morning trade. But what exactly happened with Evergrande and what led to this situation that it is in right now? #14 - Evergrande: Is it 2008 all over again? 📉 - https://bit.ly/3hOlqip Welcome back to a brand new episode of What's The Hype? with Perfunktory. As we enter the hangover months of the year, I've started building a list of goals that I want to achieve before the end of this year. I have a solid target for the Perfunktory Newsletter and the Podcast and together we'll try to hit these before the year comes to a close.

WTH with No Code? - Perfunktory
Have you always wanted to create web applications, websites and more but do not have the patience to sit down and learn how to code? Today we’ll be discussing about No-Code, Low Code and the movement around these that is taking the world by storm. I am also going to talk about tools to get you started. That brings us to the question - What's The Hype with No Code? #3 - NoCode & tools to get you started 🖥  - https://bit.ly/3gIZkN2 Welcome back to a brand new episodes of What's the Hype? with Perfunktory. My name is Ravdeep Anand. Last week was really tough considering I spent most of my time on the bed with a fever. Perfunktory is still very much a one-man operation so if I am sick, the entire operation comes to a full-stop. I will try my best to take out two episodes this week of the podcast so we get back on track. I hope you checked out the newsletter issue that I wrote on Squid Game and how it is a satire on the impact of capitalism on our society. I had a lot of fun researching the issue and these themes were swirling through my brain even when I was watching the show. But this week for the podcast, we'll be discussing something totally different and also something that is not in the crypto space. If you have any questions, feedback or any suggestions to improve the newsletter or podcast further, do reach out to me on our Instagram or Twitter.
