Although generative art existed way before Blockchain technology, last year has seen NFTs enable groundbreaking artists and their innovative expressions to gain access to whole new audience groups and monetisation mechanics, beyond the conventional boundaries of the art world. A symbiotic experience between artist, code and collectors.

One cannot talk about generative art without mentioning Art Blocks. Art Blocks is leading a new ge...

If you’ve been following the news, you probably know that we’ve announced the launch of the LedgerVerse on The Sandbox with the purpose of educating communities about Web3 security in a more engaging and culturally relevant way, starting with a first experience called School of Block, where players fight off hackers and scammers to win exclusive NFT rewards.

But what’s that all about? Why’s Ledger partnering with The Sandbox , kicks...

Relationships between web3 and the press have always been quite complex. Like between two people having a hard time understanding each other. And then came Time Magazine. Within a year and thanks to its already famous TimePieces nfts, Time has become a key player of Web3 space and its adoption. A living proof that old media can evolve.

So today, we are really happy to be talking to someone who has got all in into NFTs - but also got...

Deadfellaz is one of the most exciting NFT projects out there. So exciting that their founders are now represented by the Hollywood top-notch agents from UTA, to oversee the present and future of their 10,000 “undead” NFTs (among whom Elijah Wood and the rapper Lil Baby).

Meeting her the day after she undoxxed herself, we are stoked to be chatting with Betty, who’s the co-founder and horde mother of Deadfellaz. In an intense, Veecon...

From farm acres to crypto. Launched in 2021, 10T was the first major fund to invest in digital assets companies (including Ledger, of course). Since then, it has taken part on such projects as Yuga Labs or Ledger, led by the genius

On The Ledger, we have often met with people who got started in crypto or NFTs and thrived from there. But what about people who’re massively successful in their career and THEN turn to Web3? What does this new space bring to their business?

Our guest today did just that. After an early career in finance, she became an icon by founding Boss Beauty with her two sisters. Both a successful entrepreneur and influencer, Huda Kattan is no...

How to build a software business tailor made for the new NFT ecosystem from... a simple Google (r) form?

Our guest Brenden Mulligan invented a way for the NFT creators to choose the way their art is distributed, starting by making sure purchasers are real humans and not just scripts, leading to a project enhancing digital sovereignty for artists but that can also be used as a powerful market analysis tool... which has now reached mo...

Imagine that you’re in a space where you can create and be rewarded for that. Where you can build a community, and be rewarded for that.

Social media and Web2 have democratized access to community building at scale. And now Web3 and digital assets are supercharging that with the ability to align the financial incentives of each participant. It’s like a facebook group with a shared bank account! The possibilities are endless.

So, toda...

Composability is a major component of web3, where creators can combine different components together into larger structures. A bit like Legos, but with crypto, finance, or... art. With NFTs, artists can indeed unleash their creativity and merge different disciplines together to provide their communities with unique experiences.

This is exactly what our guest today does. After 20 years in the music industry, Jeff Nicholas is now the ...

Staking. This is a word that might sound scary, even if you’re crypto-advanced, either because it is too complex or inaccessible. How much crypto do I need? What is a delegator? How to choose a node? What are the risks, and how to prevent them? This is where Figment comes in. Figment is a blockchain infrastructure and services provider that makes it simple for token holders and enterprises to participate in Proof of Stake. And the ...

This is one of those special days On The Ledger. We often hear about crypto moon shots and their stories but it’s not everyday that we get the chance to chat with their creators and learn how they do it. But today we’ve got two of them, so fasten your seatbelts and get ready to pick their brains… Today, as the FTX x Ledger partnership is about to become a reality, we are thrilled to speak with the CEO of FTX and crypto icon, Sam Ba...

We are living the days of an artistic and cultural renaissance. Thanks to Blockchain technology, for the first time in history digital ownership is a possibility. And that changes everything. We can now own keys, create contracts and distribute assets. We are also free to port them over to different environments, which means that we can be digitally sovereign. How does this impact you and why is it important?

Big questions that dem...

It’s always been part of Ledger’s DNA to encourage internal and external developers to enrich our ecosystem. We made our code open-source, and available to any external developers. Which resulted in third-party developers submitting most of the coin applications and then blockchains that you currently use on your Ledger device. We engaged with the team behind one of the biggest blockchains out there, one that took 2021 by storm tha...

That’s the kind of episode we look forward to weeks in advance. This is the inspiring story of someone who taught himself how to use 3D art software in his free time while working at a restaurant. Since then, he has sold over 2000 NFTs for about 9 million dollars and worked with some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment, despite (or thanks to) the fact that “s*cks at doing what other people want but does great at doing...

Moonpay is one of the hottest crypto projects in town. Why? Because historically the process of entering and exiting the web3 world, the so-called on and off ramps, has been crammed with frictions. But not anymore… Moonpay provides a payment infrastructure for crypto that enables you to access the realms of Web3 in a fast, simple and secure way. Or as Jimmy Fallon puts it… the Paypal for Crypto.

And the good news is: Moonpay is avai...

Historically, brands and media companies have always been shapers and amplifiers of culture. And with every innovation that came about, the cultural landscape and its main acts were bound to change. From the TV to the internet, social media and now Web3 and digital assets, every innovation brings in new possibilities, opens the door for new players and eliminates the slow movers. 

Web3 is only getting started, but we’ve already seen...

Today, On the Ledger will be discussing memories in the form of tokens. If you think about it, the places we go to and experiences we live are a big part of our lives and identities and this is why we love to capture them. We have been collecting memories in the form of tickets, clothings and goodies for decades. But there’s one NFT player that’s changing the game in terms of value, visibility and utility: POAP - for Proof of Atten...

How do we onboard the next billion users to Web3? That ladies and gentlemen is the BILLION dollar question. But what if we told you that I’ve probably got the answer to that. Would you believe us? There are about 2.5 billion gamers in the world that generate aaaa lot of value, over 137 billion dollars, but that value is only captured by a limited number of companies, you and us, we get nothing but entertainment.
