Investing in Open Protocols with Michael Anderson of Framework Ventures

In this episode, Michael Anderson of Framework Ventures joins Patrick Stanley of Blockstack PBC to discuss how investing in open protocols is a unique challenge and how Framework has adjusted the typical VC model to account for it. Later, they get into how staking and similar action are being used as a mechanism to bootstrap network growth and how we might approach solving the 'free-rider problem'.
