Hear the untold journeys from 16 notable creators, Web 3.0 founders and thought leaders who are tinkering with social money to make their creator economy a reality.

Season two’s guests include:

DJ Don Diablo: An industry-defining NFT artist, Dutch DJ, record producer, musician and songwriter of electronic dance music who is known for his electronic style of production and vocalizing in most of his songs. He led a multi-industry career ranking sixth in the 2020’s top 100 DJs by DJ Mag, as well as amassed millions of dollars in sales for his crypto-inspired fine art.

Andrew Berkowitz, founder and CEO of Socialstack: He’s building a protocol to power mission-driven social token economies on the blockchain. Socialstack is on a mission to build community, culture and infrastructure for leaders who are driven by true impact to build new economic systems based on gratitude and abundance.

Jess Sloss, instigator at Seed Club: He’s building an incubator for the crypto space to help creators and communities launch and grow successful social tokens. Previously, he was the co-founder at Blimp, a collaboration space for real estate professionals and led the community for Protos Asset Management, a leading provider of systematic crypto and DeFi exposure.

Stani Kulechov, founder and CEO of Aave: He’s building the widely successful, open-source and non-custodial liquidity market protocol that earns anyone interest on deposits and borrowed assets. Kulechov was studying law at the University of Helsinki when he first got into Ethereum and started exploring how it could impact the traditional financial system.

Jeff Kauffman Jr., founder of Parachute: He’s building a social token-driven consultancy firm focused on Web 3.0 solutions for brands and agencies. Kauffman has made it his responsibility to provide entry-level social token exposure to many mainstream executives via the community’s currency, Jumpcoin (JUMP).

Wuki, DJ and founder of WUKI: Wuki is the genre-blending solo project of Denver-based producer Kris Barman. Influenced by the sounds of Detroit ghettotech and Chicago footwork scenes, Barman’s ability to seamlessly mix booty, breaks, electro and house into hard-hitting club-shakers has become a trademark of the Wuki sound. Furthermore, he’s reimagining what it means to build a community around his music through his social token, WUKI.

Josh Katz, founder and CEO of YellowHeart: The blockchain expert went from fetching tuna sandwiches for Clive Davis to designing NFTs for bands such as Kings of Leon. More recently, he’s producing one of the first mainstream creator DAOs for the American pop rock band Maroon 5.

Maria Shen, partner at Electric Capital: Shen is obsessed with NFTs. Currently, she’s a partner on the investment team at Electric Capital. Prior to Electric Capital, Shen was chief technology officer and co-founder of a startup that helped small and midsize businesses easily create their supply chains with manufacturers around the world. Before that, she worked on search technology at Microsoft, with her features shipped to more than 1 billion devices.

Andy Artz, partner at Social Capital: He’s on a mission to advance humanity by solving the world’s hardest problems by investing capital across early-stage startups to transformational public companies. He’s also a major proponent of the decentralized social media platform BitClout, following his own creator coin ARTZ.

Pet3rpan, an investor at 1kx: He’s a DAO and NFT thought-leader whose work is widely known across the early-stage token investment firm 1kx. He’s also a community organizer and summoner at MetaCartel, as well as the co-founder and blood mage at MetaCartel Ventures.

Carlos Gomes, founder of Forefront: He’s the founder of the social token website Forefront and a contributor at Mint Fund and Seed Club. He also works as a software developer at the crypto exchange Huobi and even launched his own social token called SWAGG.

Neil Harbisson and Pol Lombarte, cyborg artists: Cyborg artist Harbisson was born color blind but he can “feel” and “hear” colors thanks to a WiFi-enabled bone-conduction antenna that is permanently implanted into his skull. Together, Harbisson and Lombarte experimented with a new state where the buyer can directly send colors into Harbisson’s head, and on the flip side, Lombarte sold “access” to his heartbeat as an NFT where the buyer can alter his heartbeat from afar.

Jonathan Dunlap, founder and CEO of MintGate: He’s building tools through MintGate for creators to experiment with token-gated content via NFT access passes and generate secret links for events, videos, music, websites and blogs, to name a few.

Reuben Bramanathan, general partner at Ideo CoLab: He’s an expert on all things crypto law, product management, fund management and more. Having worked at Coinbase from 2015 to 2017, Bramanathan has seen the industry evolve at a rate at which many don’t have purview. Now, he’s helping to build a platform for collaborative impact where he and his team connect organizations to shape technology’s impact on the world.

Erikan Obotetukudo, founder and managing partner at Audacity Fund: She invests in Black or African-led crypto startups targeting markets worldwide worth trillions while focusing on the importance of how NFTs will change Africa forever.
