Conversation Date: 05/25/2022

With Web3.0 in the news and being talked about in the general media, most of us are still in the dark about what this means. In addition, there seems to be a new language that has evolved, dominated by acronyms and code words, like DAO, NFT, Crypto and DEFI. It’s a lot. Jake is deeply involved in this work and has help build a community of enthusiasts in Philadelphia. We’re going to talk about why Web 3.0 is so important and why you need to pay attention, especially if you’re a leader of a community. Web3 communities have become empowered like never before and one of the most powerful examples is through a DAO
