Justin Waldron has already built a multi-billion dollar business once. In 2007, he co-founded Zynga, and transformed how people think about gaming by designing social games like FarmVille on Facebook.
Zynga later sold for $13 billion, but Justin also saw the pitfalls of building in web2, where Zynga's reliance on Facebook made for a volatile relationship. That's what made web3 such an exciting alternative.
In this episode, we take Justin's insights from Zynga, like how to make a good game and how to succeed as a young founder, and apply them to his new mission in web3: Storyverse. If successful, Justin's plan for storytelling NFTs will make define a new category, alongside the likes of music and generative art. This is a conversation full of insight that you don't want to miss.
