Kevin Rose is pioneering the intersection between the NFT ecosystem and content creation. Kevin founded digg, the news aggregator site that innovated community-curated content in the early days of Web2. With a macro perspective on all things digital, Kevin has thrived as a builder and investor on the cutting edge of the internet.
The recent launch of Moonbirds is shaping up to be the best NFT drop of 2022, with a flood of volume and lofty valuations. In this episode, we dive into why it worked so well, as well as the lessons learned and actionable takeaways. We also score some advice for Bankless as fellow crypto-native content creators!
The premium of Utility NFTs is growing rapidly, and we’re witnessing the growth in real time with innovative projects like Moonbirds that build upon previous successful projects. Aligning communities, creators, tokens, and value is how we onboard 1 billion people into crypto, and pioneers like Kevin are helping us pave the way.
