Last Week on the 🌐 Internet
MIAMI, MIAMI, CRYPTO MIAMI!
NGL, Crypto Miami was incredible. Having been to a number of crypto conferences throughout the years in booms and bust, we’ve seen a lot. Generally, we attend these events to meet new players and jam with old friends. But, we were always “outsiders” if you know what I mean.
Miami kicked off with $FWB’s All Time High party with SuperRare while Palm Tree Crew’s party was packed with electronic artists at the top of their game entering crypto. But, frankly it was more than that.
Crypto is in the culture. Culture is in crypto. And, that’s cool af. We’ve moved beyond token sales, pumps and dumps, and endless defi + money crypto projects, and we’ve entered the age of creation. The age of Crypto Social. ✌️ 🤙
P.S. Lawson met Pussy Riot! Like the one that Putin put in jail. Wild.

Worth a 🔊 listen
Lawson from RARA was on JP Baric’s podcast, Digital Gold. Lawson dives into what brought him into the space and why he went all in on crypto. He goes on to discuss how fungible money used to serve as both a a form of currency, as well as a status symbol. Give it a listen 🎧 here.
