The story behind the work "x*y=k" On Monday, March 22, the Uniswap Twitter account released a 45-second animation in which a unicorn walks through a colorful DeFi-themed scene. There is also a floating 3D curve next to the unicorn, which represents Uniswap's x*y=k price curve model. The colors in the animated video represent the various tokens traded in Uniswap. The places where unicorns walk are full of vitality, representing the creative power that Uniswap and Ethereum have brought to the world. It is worth noting that this video also refers to the forest god in the "Princess Mononoke" animation.

[2018/4/23] Ethereum, a permissionless financial tool, provides the power of crowdfunding funds. With Ethereum, the power of all people can be converged on a single goal, which is to raise more funds than the opponent. goal achieved. The above is also the story of teamwork defeating a single individual. The artist behind x*y=k Another story about x*y=k is pplpleasr, the artist behind it. She has created many excellent animations. Uniswap's "x*y=k" may be the most popular work today, but it is not pplpleasr's first DeFi animation. In fact, pplpleasr has created animations for many DeFi teams. Here are the teams she has worked with: Aave Sushiswap FutureFund Pickle Degen Score And of course Uniswap. Interview with Pplpleasr We had the honor to interview pplpleasr and asked her some questions about the creation of "x*y=k". In the interview, pplpleasr described how he cooperated with Uniswap to create the work "x*y=k", and also talked about the early source of inspiration for the work. Her creation story coincides with the current development of Ethereum: 1. Find fun in the process of cooperation 2. Gain confidence from the community and ecological environment 3. Discover a mechanism of creating value from skills 4. Hope Helping others achieve the same She also said she was inspired by a tweet by Qiao Wang, who suggested that people who have recently made a fortune should help others financially to make the most of that wealth. For the wealth generated by Ethereum, here is her view on redistribution: In addition to providing financial services without permission and intermediaries, Ethereum also has the greatest potential to redefine society in other areas. The true potential of Ethereum is its ability to redefine the culture and users associated with it. In my opinion, Ethereum will really change the world, harness the way wealth circulates, and create new cultural tendencies. Although applications such as Uniswap and NFT can promote the birth of new wealth circulation mechanisms, this ultimately depends on the psychological orientation of Ethereum users, because it is these users who constitute the cultural environment in which Ethereum operates. I believe pplpleasr and her work can become a model, representing the new cultural spirit of DeFi and Ethereum. I hope pplpleasr can attract more new artists to Ethereum, and use their creative methods to change the value redistribution of the world! If Ethereum is going to revolutionize the world, it won't just have to rely on building new financial software. It needs to inspire a more positive attitude in people. This is the power of Ethereum. "x*y=k" sold for more than 500,000 US dollars because it fully utilized the value of Ethereum: 1. Crowdfunding (DAO organization) 2. A financial asset (NFT) 3. A Cultural expression (animation) 4. Market value based on humanistic value Based on the permissionless nature of Ethereum, a DAO organization can be established in a limited time, and only one tweet is needed to attract like-minded people. To establish such an organization, In less than 12 hours, 465 ETH, or $800,000, was able to be raised to achieve the single goal of purchasing NFT. The power of Ethereum is its ability to allow many people to concentrate their efforts to achieve a single goal. Tokens are tools for attracting attention. DAO organizations allow people to focus. Through Ethereum, people can crowdfund and achieve valuable goals. The power of a DAO organization lies in its ability to coordinate like-minded people who share a common goal and everyone is pursuing that goal. With DAO organizations, people can gather money, value or labor to pursue common goals. Ethereum is full of various open financial tools, allowing us to find a balance between cultural value and asset value.
