In this episode of The Unstoppable Podcast, we’re talking to Adam Draper. Adam is the Founder and Managing Director of Boost VC and has a ton of experience investing in all kinds of blockchain and crypto projects.
Adam talks about his experiences as an investor in Coinbase and finding his way into crypto, and we chat about the importance of scarcity in Web3 and what it means for the digital world as a whole. Adam shares his thoughts on how Web3 can drive greater participation and collaboration in areas like finance and entertainment.
We talk about how crypto is replacing traditional investments in many ways, and Adam talks about how he’s seen investment in the crypto space change over time. We discuss the growth of NFTs and their impact, the importance of building trust in online communities and crypto in general, and overcoming bad press in the Web3 space.
Finally, we dig into what’s coming next — the concept of owning property in the metaverse, the blending of the digital and physical worlds, the expansion of the internet, and how projects like Unstoppable Domains are driving and shaping this growth.
