Collecting Crypto Opportunities
Dapper Labs launched the digital collectible craze into the mainstream earlier this year with its smash hit NBA Top Shot. Hear from CEO Roham Gharegozlou who, even amid sinking NFT sales, has big ambitions for the space. His startup recently hit a $7.5 billion valuation and aims to own the NFT ecosystem with its Flow blockchain product.
Breaking the Bank
Coinbase’s massive direct listing earlier this year couldn’t have come at a better time as peaking crypto enthusiasm reached market exuberance. Hear from CEO Brian Armstrong who, amid a major market correction, is tasked once again with building for the future and navigating volatility while fending off global competitors knocking at their door.
Bankrolling Web 3.0
At $2.2 billion, Andreessen Horowitz’s third crypto-centric fund is its largest vertical-specific bet ever and a signal of just how crucial blockchain tech and decentralized finance is to the firm’s future. Hear from General Partner Katie Haun, who co-leads the crypto team tasked with tracking down the firm’s next Coinbase, which returned billions for the firm.
Revolutionizing the Global Metaverse Economy
Together Labs is leveraging the power of blockchain technology to create the new metaverse economy, where users can buy, sell, invest and shape its future. Earlier this year, Together Labs launched VCOIN, the first global, digital currency that can be used in and out of the metaverse. VCOIN makes it possible for users to play to earn real value and then convert that value to cash. Soon, the company will introduce additional blockchain offerings to accelerate the transition to a complete blockchain economy, setting the economic model for other metaverses to follow. Presented by VCOIN.
