In this episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to Josh Rosenthal. Josh is an entrepreneur, investor, and crypto historian, as well as Co-Founder and Partner at The 6ixth Event — a founders’ fund for crypto projects.
We talk about how NFTs and crypto are driving a kind of digital renaissance, what led Josh to this idea, and how it compares to the last renaissance. How are NFTs redefining the way we think about things like community, ownership, and property rights?
Josh talks about the value of using symbols to communicate ideas and concepts, and we discuss the significance of early, “low-brow” art like CryptoPunks. Is Web3 the present-day equivalent of creating the printing press?
We discuss how Web3 can give more power to individual content creators and give us greater control and ownership over our own data. Finally, Josh shares some ideas on what Web3 means for identity and how this could evolve over time.
