About this Episode

gm. Mauricio Magaldi and Cuy Sheffield are back this week for another deep dive.

In today’s Insights episode, we’re doing something a bit different than usual. This is your official welcome to Blockchain Insider’s first case study!

Whether or not you’ve been a regular listener, you probably know just how big the potential of web3 is- but how do we get there? To fully understand that, we need to understand where we currently are, and how we got here. That’s where web2.5 comes in. Web2.5 is the transition step between its more famous siblings - web2 and web3. So, the question we want to ask today is, why is web2.5 so important?

There are a handful of companies playing pivotal roles in web2.5 and we’re lucky to be joined by one of those key players today:

  • Will White, COO at WalletConnect

Just a quick reminder - nothing we share here is legal, tax or financial advice. Views or opinions expressed by the panel are their own and do not necessarily reflect the view of the entities they are representing.
