In this episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to Maria Shen, a Partner at Electric Capital, and she has a ton of experience working with crypto projects and NFTs.
Maria talks about her background studying political science and computer science at Harvard, working at Microsoft, and how she arrived in the world of blockchain and NFTs. She talks about the point when she realized that NFTs were really taking off and becoming important, and her article “Five New Frontiers for NFTs.”
We talk about the idea of membership limits in the NFT community and whether this is necessary to create scarcity or can prevent certain people from participating in NFT culture. Maria talks about on-chain reputation and identity and how it could work in Web3.
Finally, Maria shares some of her influences and what she thinks is the craziest thing we’ll be doing in the metaverse that people aren’t thinking about yet.
