Energizing, Inspiring and Insightful! 🔥

Regardless of where you are in your journey into the crypto world - this is a must listen! Adam does an incredible job covering the stories and innovations you need to know about to deepen your understanding of the ecosystem - with inspiring interviews from leaders and creators who actually have first-hand experience. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

THE NFT PODCAST

Mint is a podcast that you are going to wish you knew about earlier. I was hooked immediately after listening to the Glass cofounder Dayo and think mint and glass are the future of what we will be listening and watching

MUST LISTEN! Adam is the best host

Wow! There is truly nothing like “Mint” on the market. I heard about the show after listening to Adam’s previous show “Blockchain and Booze”. Adam is a legend and he interviews the BEST GUESTS. If you are interested in social tokens, crypto, and the creator community, you MUST LISTEN.

Sooo excited for more episodes!
