    Base Layer Episode 235: Ian McMilan, Chief Growth Officer @ Mojito on creating NFT strategies with iconic businesses and brands

    It's been a while, but the show is coming back more frequently! Ian joins us from Mojito, which grew to fame by building the Metaverse Marketplace for Sotheby's in 2021. We had a great conversation about how iconic businesses and brands are working with Mojito to think about and deploy their NFT and Metaverse strategies. Why? There are billions of people out there (gamers) who are already part of the economic world. Still, even more that are just starting to be a significant part of our global economic future - and they live in metaverses to some extent already. Why did Nike, Adidas, and fashion brands build here already? Learn more from Ian.

Easy to Understand

As a Fin Dir for local government I am far removed from BC and DeFi but am interested in understanding the future and how it will impact economy and how best to evaluate the market for pension investment purposes. This podcast is one of my faves because it keeps it interesting and simple and shares the long term vision for products and technologies discussed. Personally, it helped me feel more comfortable buying Bitcoin and Ethereum. I am a believer now. Thanks for sharing!
