Bio

Daine’s love for drawing doodles and dragons during English class started him on a path that evolved into graduating with a degree in fine arts … and not creative writing. However, that didn’t stop him from pursuing his love of story telling. Graduating from the University of Montana with a focus in filmmaking and animation, Daine traded his plane ticket for Hollywood for the opportunity to return to where his childhood and story began: Wyoming. Here, with affordable housing and plentiful resources, Daine designed and prototyped his company, pursued crypto, and later started his work for Harmony.

Research

Thoughts & Findings

ThoughtsFindingsNotesResources
What would a “Buy my NFTs” page look like for a creator? Are there any examples of people having made this before?
I think something to try is recreating the look and feel of the Apple app marketplace. Simple slide down menu showcasing the different NFTs, and when they’re clicked on a brief explanation and “Add to Cart” option. Also look into Amazon or other major marketplaces.
Stephen’s Notes: Make it 30 seconds. If more NFTs means longer than 30 seconds, only allow 1 NFT buy.
How do I incorporate Apple pay into the web app?
What makes fractal fun?
I like how this banner used animation to provide a relaxed feel to the site.

Notes

  • Team members will be showing up and will be immediately assigned a team. In those teams there will be sub-teams, and within those teams the members need to have 3 deliverables for the next 3 weeks. It’s also important to have 3 hour deliverables to reach those 3 week deliverables. We’re going to be focused on the three Q3 Team initiatives: NFT Mints, Fiat Buys, and New Users, with the end goal being to make $100k by Q3, or 20% monthly growth per Monthly-Product-Team fit.
  • Community morale is super important to maintain, and making sure everyone has a shared focus and goal is important.

Tse Notes

  • A coworker had brought up concerns about the company and Stephen handled it well.
    • When faced with an emotional and important question, a good strategy is to think about the other concerns that are being brought up. What questions and solutions are they looking for?
      • In this example, the response was: “We need to focus on what your question pointed out. I’m not invalidating or saying your question isn’t important, however your question provides us with 3 more important issues, “Who is leading this?”, “What problems am I trying to solve?”, and “Who can help me find solutions?”

conversation turn taking
Rate 1 - 10 with 10 being the best
disconfirm own beliefs
8 - I think the only way someone can know everything is to have lived every life. All of my beliefs came from my own life and experiences, and those are always subject to change.
self-aware & articulate
9 - I think the first step to understanding oneself is to listen to oneself. If you can understand who you are and what you like about yourself, learning to understand others comes naturally.
Personal
share a drink
7 - When times are difficult, only the ones who work together will survive the toughest storms, but if we’re all stuck on a literal life boat, then we have a difficult decision to make.
spend 10 hours daily together
6 - There’s a reason this question says 10 instead of 20, personal space and time for reflection is important.
nurture & mentor
9 - If you need help and you know I’m the only man for the job, grab a chair and have a seat my friend.
Collaborative
make everyone shine
people over process
dare to disagree
9 - Disagreements are opportunities for both parties to learn. If we’re all on the same page, perfect; if not we, need to fix it.
