    On this sixth episode of our second season of Curating Crypto we have the pleasure to have Josie Bellini as a guest.

    Josie is an artist out of Chicago with a background in finance where she saw first hand what was wrong with the current financial system and how it is designed to help the wealthiest while restricting the freedom of the average people. She started crypto in 2017 where she designed work for all types of crypto companies and funds and has just left her job at bloxroute to focus full-time on the crypto art scene to make art to promote awareness and adoption and share the values of crypto with everyone. Josie is one of the leading and more sought-after artists in crypto with an incredible following thanks to her iconic pieces and her ability to always innovate.

    Duncan & Griffin Cock Foster: Founders of Nifty Gateway, pushing for mass adoption of NFTs

    Duncan & Griffin Cock Foster: Founders of Nifty Gateway, pushing for mass adoption of NFTs

    On this fifth episode of our second season of Curating Crypto we have the pleasure to have Duncan and Griffin Cock Foster. 

    Identical twins, both had been living separately. Griffin in New York City and Duncan in SF, until their passion for building and all things crypto, tech and digital art brought them back together to chase a dream.

    Duncan first got into Nifties in 2017 when he learned about CryptoKitties. He attended Emory University and received a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science in 2017. He has always been interested in technological frontiers, and ever since he saw that amazingly passionate community of nifty collectors, he has been hooked.

    Griffin got his first job out of Washington University at St. Louis at Jet.com in Hoboken, but quickly grew restless and longed for the independence and opportunity of starting his own company. He moved up to San Francisco, convinced Duncan to quit his job too, and the rest is history.

    You may have also read about them in a recent profile in New York Magazine, or saw their amazing story about the acquisition on Bloomberg.
