What Inspires Web3 Founders and Builders
This episode features snippets of inspiration as we explore what inspired today's builders and leaders of web3 and web3 communities during their crypto journey and what motivates these pioneers to build innovative products and services in the rapidly evolving world of decentralized technology.
Dan Romero reflects on his journey and how the internet provided an ungated space to create and publish content while growing an audience for minimal money or effort.
Lukas shares how the vibrant and dynamic community on Crypto Twitter, where ideas are shared and debated in real time, inspired how this leads to new collaborations and innovations.
Mike McGuiness, Chris Castig, and David Phelps are all inspired by the social visionary Balaji Srinivasan's transparent work on the Network State. Along with his revolutionary ideas of the impact crypto will have in the future of society.
Vikram shares his vision of not living with regrets and how hearing years previously from Jeff Bezos has motivated him in everything that he has done.
Zach Anderson shared being inspired by thinkers that work to open up different paradigms and systems.
Alex Salnikov shares the powerful impact Vitalik Buterin had on his journey and how reading Ethereum Whitepaper and the revolutionary foundation it set for decentralized finance and web3 technology.
Perchy shares how friends have directly influenced his journey, leading him to where he is today.
David Phelps also shares how creating community relationships impacted his journey, noting how deep dives into economics, economic theory, and macroeconomics not only inspired a realization of the decline of US Power and the decline in the US dollar but built the foundation for friendship. Friendships flourished over debates on the next global order, paving the path down the rabbit hole. This particular trip down the rabbit hole not only provoked higher level questions like, What if the next global empire isn't a psychical nation-state? What if the internet is the next Global state? But it also formed a lifelong friendship in the process.
Alex Poon reflects on his experience with the alliance accelerator and the generosity and understanding within his network.
Erin McMullen reflects on women that she has met while creating a welcoming space for female and those that identify as non-binary.
Philip Silva notes Bitcoin and our very own Humpty Calderon as inspiration throughout his journey.
