41. Web3: A New Era of Ownership and Innovation

Web 3.0 is a hot topic right now. What is it? And why is there so much skepticism and hype surrounding it? Serial entrepreneur and Web3 expert Sam Kamani joins host Jim Barnish on this episode to discuss why this is an opportunity for building in a new environment. Whether or not you’re familiar with blockchain technology, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies, you need to pay attention.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Problems are opportunities. Don’t complain about them - go to work, fix them, and profit.
  • Recessions are a great time for building and experimenting, thanks to lower operating  costs and the necessity for innovation to survive (and thrive)!
  • To grasp Web3, you need to understand the evolution:

Web1 = Information consumption disruption e.g., Blogs, websites, etc.

Web2 = Information/content creation disruption e.g., Social media

Web3 = Ownership revolution i.e., data & currency ownership decentralization
