On this episode of Overpriced JPEGs, Carly sits down (in person for NFT NYC!) with Gabe Frank, Founder and CEO of Arcade—a liquidity protocol for NFT collateral.

Gabe comes from a family that owns a chain of pawn shops and attributes this experience to his interest in loans collateralized with non-fungible physical assets. Mix in his crypto experience at BitGo and Curve and you get Arcade!

How does Arcade work? What does the current state of regulation look like? How does the future of Arcade and the NFT lending market play out? Answers to these questions and so much more in the episode!
