In my free time, I write about the intersection of crypto, creators, and communities.
Here are some of my most popular posts:
How Crypto Projects Like Loot are Rewriting the Playbook for Building Communities (Means of Creation podcast)
The Next Crypto Cycle - Web3, DAOs, and NFTs (The Deep End podcast by On Deck)
These DAOs are online communities that launch web3 projects, collect rare NFTs, deploy custom smart contracts, host virtual events, and more.
I think DAOs like these are going to become some of the most influential online communities over the next decade as they amass large treasuries and serve as incubators for the best builders and creators in the space. I wrote about this here.
