Tilton Talks Crypto, like SmartFi, the show’s sponsor, is a “broad church” type of product, where both DeFi and CeFi views are represented. We see the value and potential of Bitcoin, so love to talk to people like Natalie Brunell and Dan Held who are from that world, but we also recognize that Web3 applications of crypto and blockchain technology are increasingly relevant, and probably represent the future of the industry.
One of the best things about the crypto and blockchain industries is the smart, dynamic people that you meet along the way. This week’s guest on Tilton Talks Crypto is a good example of that. Matthias Mende is an interesting guy, to say the least, and his new project, Bonuz, is an innovative, blockchain-based solution to a problem often faced by creators.
That is why we were so pleased to talk with Matthias Mende over the holidays. Matthias is a long-term crypto enthusiast and entrepreneur, whose latest project Bonuz caught our eye. Bonuz is an app and project that are designed to bring creators and influencers in the crypto and NFT worlds together with their fans.
As Matthias explained in the episode, just a few dedicated fans can, by use of social media and other platforms, lend success to or amplify a project. He believes that their efforts should be rewarded by the creator who benefits from that, not necessarily financially but maybe with backstage passes or early access to new products. Bonuz facilitates that, so is useful on both sides of that relationship.
We talked about the specifics of Bonuz, but we also discussed other things, such as the uses of a token that functions as an NFT, and the need for a “bridge” between DeFi and CeFi as the markets and industries grow. It was an interesting discussion with an interesting guy and will be fascinating to anyone interested in the future of crypto.
It is an app and platform that connects creators in the Web3 industry with their fans, allowing them to better track who is actively promoting their work and to reward them. The platform also has multiple other functions that run alongside that. It acts as proof of attendance at events and a communication channel between fans and creators.
Matthias will explain everything he offers as well as his outlook for the Web3 space as he and Martin Tillier, SmartFi’s Head of Research talk. Even before the launch of Bonuz, Matthias was a successful innovator and a serial entrepreneur who has won awards for his work and they will also talk about his path to his current success.
