Web3 will change sports (and life) forever??

Web3 will change sports (and life) forever??

Last week, I outed myself as a web3 doubter. This week, I'm pushing myself to consider whether I might be...wrong.

But first: If you check this video on YouTube you'll see that I'm wearing some very gorgeous dainty gold jewelry. It's sweat-proof, which is exactly what I need when I'm talking about cr*pto. It's from OXB—feast your eyes on their beautiful selection here: https://bit.ly/3PkZIkd

Now to the episode: I'm hanging out with Kirby Porter, the founder of New Game Labs and W3 Sports and a former Harvard basketball player. She explains her thesis on the nexus of web3 and sports, namely how athletes navigating new rules around monetizing their careers can leverage web3 tech. The best part of this interview, though, is that it's about more than just people who play sports. It's about all of us.

Listen, learn, think about how you squandered your hoop dreams. Lots to be absorbed with this one!! Also Kirby is genuinely one of the coolest, smartest people I know. Enjoy!!!
