Quotes From Leo Nasskau 

“We sort of see where we are in 2023 as a really pivotal moment in terms of what the internet looks like, how society organizes, and really, blockchain is just a fundamentally innovative and really impactful technology that we wanted to bring to the world and think about what it means for culture, what it means for commerce, what it means for people organizing.”

“That’s really the vision: to show the world that we’ve got this really exciting technology, this is what it actually means for you, for your friends, for your job. This is why we think it’s really important.”

“Companies like Day Away offer luxury travel experiences with NFT-based discounts across various platforms. Starbucks has a program where blockchain-based transactions enable perks and discounts. It opens up possibilities for more interesting commerce, branding, promotions, and discounts. I’m excited to see how these aspects develop in the coming years.”

“You need to be competing with so many more charities to really stand out. So crypto donations is something that is probably the first thing to think about. But also money just in terms of how you distribute it as well.”
