Mason Nystrom of Variant Fund published this piece on cryptoeconomic business models. He argues that each wave of crypto is dominated by new distribution mechanisms and cryptoeconomic models. Three of the newer emerging models include Contract Secured Revenue, Nounish DAOs, and MEV Orderflow. We’re all familiar with Nounish DAOs and the perpetual auction mechanism here at Forefront. Contract Secured Revenue is when a portion of fees from the utilization of a smart contract accrue to an NFT or an address. As MEV unbundles into multiple stakeholders applications that control users – and therefore transaction flow – will be able to bundle user transactions and sell them in private memepools to searchers and block builders. These models, among others, are just some of the unique ways that crypto protocols and communities can generate meaningful revenue for their stakeholders.
