This week’s NFT NYC conference brought hordes of web3 enthusiasts to Times Square in an extravagant celebration that stood out from the much less exuberant crypto market. There were yacht parties, celebrity cameos, and even a Snoop Dogg impersonator running around the event.

Hello and welcome to the Chain reaction podcast, where we unpack and explain the latest crypto news, drama, and trends, breaking it down block by block for the crypto curious.

On our show this week, we talked about the NFT market and why it might seem to offer a slight respite from the total doomsday narrative unfolding in technology these days. We also talked about another major web3 subsector – DAOs – and unpacked two recent reports on the DAO drama.

We also returned to news involving a lawsuit, dogecoin and Elon Musk, the “dogefather” himself.

Our guest: Latasha

We spoke this week with music and visual artist Latashá about how she’s used NFTs to claim ownership of and make a living from her creative work — and help other artists do the same. She also shared what she hosted at NFT NYC, a festival experience called Zoratopia on behalf of the NFT Zora platform, where she leads the community.
