Overview of episode 14. Billy Rennekamp, Tendermint vs ICF

Starting with the latest episode: 'Billy Rennekamp, Tendermint vs ICF', we've decided to put together a follow-up post for our podcast episodes. Each overview will contain a brief description and a timeline of the episode. In due time, we will also add transcripts to each episode. Better late than never they say...

Billy Rennekamp is the grants' manager at Interchain Foundation and the founder of Clovers Network. In this episode we discuss ICF’s functions as a vehicle and its role for the greater Cosmos ecosystem. We chat about Clovers Network and NFT tokens. We also talk about how citizenship will look in the (not so) distant future, tattoo machines and blockchain DNA.

You can learn how to get a grant from the ICF for your web3 project or / and your Cosmos-SDK based project. What are the criteria that ICF is looking for, how does it function as a vehicle and much more.
