Time is our most valuable asset. We each hold a limited supply of time, but how we use it, what we use it for and for what price we sell it sometimes feels out of our control.

Blockchain technology has brought the power of immutability and trustlessness to individuals. We’ve leveraged this technology to elevate and monetize many aspects of daily life:

  • Art → NFTs
  • Companies → DAOs

So, how do we do this?
