Quotes:

“The spirit and ethos of the space is really leaning into decentralization and greater access and distribution for the everyday person…I think there is a really powerful move to be made and I think it’ll shift online things like e-commerce, entertainment, IP, and things like that.” - Joe Payne, (7:49)

 

“The spirit of what we’re trying to do though is just co-create with all of the people that are supporting early on and that’s where all of the really interesting and fun ideas come from. You’ve got people that get it and are involved because they want to contribute and put their mark on it.” - Joe Payne, (12:07)

 

The possibilities are endless, right? I think really, it just comes down to how the market receives it and what people get excited about and where they want to see the brand brought to life.” - Joe Payne, (26:23)
