Ever wondered what it's truly like behind the closed doors of a crypto giant? Or why brands like Nike are suddenly diving headfirst into the world of Web3?
In this episode of Defire, I had the pleasure of talking to Marc Baumann (@marcb_xyz), the former marketing maestro at Bitcoin Suisse, who's now on a mission to guide brands into the digital frontier.
Marc opened up about his time at Bitcoin Suisse, sharing tales of ups and downs and the sheer unpredictability of the crypto market. But beyond the Bitcoin stories, we delved deep into the allure of Web3 and why it's catching the attention of global brands. Marc's insights into how companies like Nike are positioning themselves in this new digital era were both enlightening and thought-provoking.
We also touched upon the transformative power of NFTs and the Metaverse, exploring how they're not just reshaping business strategies but also redefining personal identities. As Marc aptly put it, "Now you have an immersive digital world where you can own stuff. You can build your identity with what you own."
This episode is a blend of insider tales, expert insights, and a glimpse into the future of digital interactions. Whether you're a crypto enthusiast or just curious about the buzz around Web3, this conversation with Marc Baumann promises a wealth of knowledge.
