Digital Dawn

Will Schneller explores the intersection of design, technology, and entrepreneurship. After an epic opening moment on the mic, Ben and Will talk about building within education, signals to consider if/when/what to quit, wallets in web3, zero knowledge proofs, and provenance.

After the break, Will expands on what he wrote in Non-Fungible Fabric, by talking through the endless depth that NFTs deliver. We take a pit stop to discuss the unmatched energy of accelerating others, the connections we’ve unlocked through the Roasted Reflections NFT Collection, and finish by adding a zero to whatever you’re building.
