Building Web3

Web3 is the answer, but what is the question?

In 1966, Cedric Price used this formulation to ask what technological progress means for architecture. Decades later, with blockchain on the cusp of its Gutenberg moment, this is still a fruitful line of inquiry.

Building Web3 brings together primer movers in the venture capital industry for a series of talks that brings their unique perspectives on how Web3 may impact financial institutions, social media, gaming/metaverse, governance, and much more.

Get ready Player One, we’re about to snow crash into the diamond age.
