#235 – An NFT Conversation for Indie Hackers with Hiten Shah and Mubashar Iqbal
I'm finally doing it. I'm doing an episode on cryptocurrencies--specifically, NFTs. I have been a huge skeptic of this space, but a few weeks ago I started looking deeper. I even bought my first NFT. In this episode, I invited two friends, Hiten Shah (@hnshah) and Mubashar Iqbal (@mubashariqbal), to talk about what I've realized about this space and what indie hackers can do today to get something out of it.
