🎙 BP#2: MotivateMe.eth of Cryptoadz
Cryptoadz community manager on building great communities, the power of CC0, and why so many choose to remain pseudonymous in Web3.
Available on both Spotify and Apple Podcasts, The Bad Posture Podcast will bring you bi-weekly interviews with the artists, entrepreneurs, builders, breakers, innovators and engineers bringing us into the metaverse.
Welcome back, frens!
In Episode #2, we interview MotivateMe.eth the pseudonymous community manager for Cryptoadz by Gremplin. Moti (moh-tee) came for the flip and stayed for the community, helping to launch one of the most successful NFT projects to date, bringing in more than $200M in only a handful of months. He's self-aware, cohesive, and incredibly patient, helping maintain the !vibe for more than 14 hours every day. If you're interested in how to build great NFT communities, why a project would choose to use a creative commons license (nobody owns the IP!), or how to participate in Web3 without being rich, this is the episode for you.
