Over the last couple of months I’ve been interviewing leading NFT innovators past and present on their personal stories, perspectives, hopes and fears for the future of the space. The plan is to weave these together into a single audio documentary to explore the history of NFTs, its key moments, meta narratives and the people that drive them to be included in The WTF Genesis Bundle as NFT audio files. However, many of these stories are so inspirational and thought provoking we thought we would release a handful each week in the build up to the drop as standalone 20min+ podcast episodes on the leading platforms below.
To get you started we’ve uploaded a handful of some of the best ones to give you a taster of the diverse spectrum of topic and guest we’ve captured from OGs to newcomers, founders to artists and collectors.
