  • Yesterday, CoinGecko published a rundown of the DePIN narrative gaining traction in the wider web3 world. They argue that "current systems are grossly centralized" and DePIN returns control back to users in a new sort of "industrial class DAO". https://www.coingecko.com/learn/depin-crypto-decentralized-physical-infrastructure-networks

  • DIMO is cooking something up in February for the massive crypto celebration that is EthDenver. You may remember the DIMO Bronco driving around last year to get people hyped about DePIN, and the team is starting to plan some activities surrounding this year’s event. If you’ll be in Colorado for the conference, we’d love to link up! https://www.ethdenver.com/

🔔 Reminders

  • Don’t trust, verify! We’ve got a @shaolinfunktastic doppleganger going around trying to scam people out of their hard-earned DIMO rewards. DIMO employees will NEVER ask you for your seed phrase, passwords, private key, or other sensitive information that is not required for support. Always double check usernames, look for the verified Discord user flair (Mods, DINC, Customer Success, Community Support), and when in doubt DM a moderator or go straight to [email protected]. https://discord.com/channels/892438668453740634/892445232422064169/1194856729188515841
