Quotes from the episode:

“We think about Digg in the sense of how do you best have a representation of Bitcoin in other networks to which people would want to use that Bitcoin for financial applications and services without having to rely on centralized parties to custody that.”. [00:07:39]

“We built our code base off of Ample because we believe one, in the rebasing mechanics, but two, of the most battle tested rebasing code base in the market.” [00:14:41]

“Interesting fact, there was 2.1 million Badger, which today would be a hundred million dollars. Only 800,000 Badger were claimed. So there's still 1.3 million that were unclaimed that now are in the hands of the DAO, for them to decide what they'd like to do with.” [00:22:24]
