AVC readers may have noticed that I didn’t blog here yesterday.
That’s because I blogged on USV.com instead, about our most recent investment.
You can read that post here.
I actually thought you were unwell until I read this. Glad to hear.
I thought the same! Now he has to put an asterisk next to any “I’ve been blogging at AVC every day for X years” claims 🙂

This is the key point from the blog post for the future direction and potential of this investment:We also think digital collectibles and all of the games they enable will be one of the first, if not the first, big consumer use cases for blockchain technologies.Congratulations also to @WilliamMougayar who was an angel investor in cryptokitties .
This is a solid development. This is one of the most clear signs of marketing taking over the job of value creation on top of a technology stack. The technology has been struggling to articulate a market that goes beyond speculation and a “store of value” hypothesis.This is creating need by creating artificial supply constraints around a demand that does not exist 🙂 Love the power of marketing! Before I get my ears talked off. Yes I get the beauty of an elegant decentralized smart contract framework. But clearly that beauty is lost to the masses.
