Over 110 episodes of interviews with the most interesting founders, builders, & investors in web3

Spindl

Antonio Garcia-Martinez is the Founder and CEO of Spindl. Backed by Dragonfly, Chapter One, Balaji Srinivasan, & more, Spindl is creating Web3's first real attribution system—so you can know where your users came from, what they're doing, and why. In this episode we chat about what attribution enables for analytics, communicating the value of marketing to crypto-natives, differences between building in web2 vs. web3 (and why web3 is simply more interesting), predictions for the future of crypto, reflections on which of his writings impacted him most (as a writer), and much, much more.

corpus.ventures

Christoph Jentzsch is the Co-Founder & CEO at corpus.ventures. Christoph Jentzsch is a theoretical physicist who was one of the earliest developers on Ethereum, creator of The DAO (known for its hack in 2016), the founder of slock.it (one of the most exciting early Ethereum projects), and now, co-founder & CEO at corpus.ventures, a venture studio building in web3. In this episode we hear what attracted him to Ethereum during its earliest days, how he wrestled with (and worked through) his emotional state during and after The DAO Hack, his unwavering commitment to the Ethereum community and its ideals (despite public perception that the “loud” frauds and scams across web3 are representative of everyone in the space), and the exciting projects they’re building at corpus.ventures.
