Building a Web 3 Stack From Scratch, Muneeb Ali of Blockstack Founders of Web 3

    • Technology

Muneeb talks about his journey leaving academia at Princeton to fix what he saw as a broken internet. Initially going through Y Combinator he and his co-founder continued to develop an end-to-end Web 3 stack that went on to become Blockstack through 4 years of R&D, attracting investment from the likes of Naval Ravikant, USV, DCG and Fenbushi uniquely not as a decentralised network but as a US domiciled startup with regular employees. He discusses the hard path of working with the SEC to conduct the first Reg A + token offering raising over $23m and taking a rigorous phased engineering approach to making Web 3 a reality, now with over 8k active devs and 270 DApps.
