The Delegate Cash protocol significantly reduces the risk of theft for NFTs and other tokens by allowing users to safely store valuable assets in one wallet and delegate the rights to those assets to another.

During this episode, Chaparro, Copeland, and the Delegate Cash team also discuss:

  • Why BAYC whales and professional gamers recently joined forces
  • How Liquid Delegates have created a new financial primitive
  • Why the team released Delegate Cash for free
