Blockade Games is behind Neon District, Plasma Bears, and Pineapple Arcade. Neon District is their flagship game -- a blockchain-based RPG that with a multi-phased release. Before we get to all things Blockade, I talk to Marguerite about her art, and crypto puzzles, where she has gotten a lot of attention. Her most popular piece, TORCHED H34R7S, is up now for auction both as an NFT (non-fungible token) and a physical painting. The puzzle was solved in 2018, with a price of 5 bitcoin. [caption id="attachment_2686" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The puzzle painting worth 5 bitcoin[/caption] A great Vice article digs more into the story of the person who solved the puzzle after three years. Marguerite went on to do a lot of work in the Blockchain ecosystem around marketing and community, before starting Blockade Games.

In this episode, I talk to Wes Pryor, of Liquid Malta. Wes's business provides market making services in the cryptocurrency space, primarily for lower liquidity small cap altcoins, including new listings. They have worked a lot on projects with initial distributions through decentralized exchanges like IDEX. We talked about how those opportunities come about, how they work practically, and discuss a lot of risks in the market. The idea of market making brand new listings, and going into partnership agreements with exchanges and coin teams, is fascinating to me. Mostly because it sounds a bit scary. Wes is a smart investor and trader and he helps break down exactly what kinds of risks there are, what the practice requires, and how they do what they do.
