The WateringHodl March 1, 2023: Bringing attention to the Grail w/ ARX.

On this episode of The WateringHodl, Low-poly Duck had Lisa from ARX protocol as a guest to talk about blockchain.

Low-poly Duck was joined by a friend from Fluidity Money, @Yneas, and Mr. Blaze. Low-poly Duck gave a shout-out to all the women in the Saddle Finance team and officially announced that Saddle was participating in the Atlantean Embassy.

The WateringHodl March 15, 2023: Going for gold w/ Midas.

On this episode we had a few technical difficulties but nevertheless, Low-Poly Duck was joined by our very own head of growth,  0xemac, and Meme-lord 0xTasal, the social media manager. They discussed the arrival of the L2D4 bribes and hot topics in the crypto market, such as the momentary de-pegging of USDC and DAI.
