This idea around granularity of assets and then programming assets, and price discovery and value discovery, I don’t think we’ve seen the beginning (of what’s possible with NFTs).

and cryptoasset inventor Jalak Jobanputra. FPV backs entrepreneurs globally who believe that decentralized
technology and business models will lead to a more equitable and prosperous future for everyone.
