Sourav Deb is co-owner of Guerrilla Music and a thought leader in the Web3 space. Sourav and his partner have successfully built a socially conscious company that exists on the blockchain but is focused on growth in the real world.  Through Guerrilla Music they have initiatives like the Color the Blockchain campaign. They hold free online courses to onboard people who want to learn but haven’t had the resources to do so. They teach in the cadence of hip hop so it’s easy to break through the language barrier of blockchain lingo. For the past year they’ve been raising money to support and assist artists in developing countries. As Guerrilla Music is owned by a woman and a person of color, inclusivity is important to them. They’ve recently launched the $RAP Token and are in the prelaunch stages of an NFT drop and Play to Earn game featuring their RAP HEADZ characters. $RAP Token is used in voting for their MetaVerzus events held in Decentraland and has many in real life uses. They have created wearables for National Geographic, Jim Jones, Zap Theory, Forever 21, Space 1 Mission, Ice Poker, The Hundreds, Penguin Fight Club, Tru Community and more.

Bored Ape Yacht Club’s Metaverse Minting Debacle – Gas fees, Twitter taunts, broken records and the promise of brighter days Yuga Labs finds itself on the otherside in more ways than one as they suffer blowback from the community for wasting gas, costing buyers a mint to mint, and ‘saying no big deal’ after many wallets were left holding an empty bag. What’s all the fuss about? Why is everyone ‘ape-ing in’ to the new metaverse that has yet to be built out? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/michael-carter573/message

019 - Pages versus Places - How will social interaction in the metaverse differ from current social media platforms?

The metaverse has the potential to change the social dynamics of virtual spaces. Instead of a page where largely asynchronous communication takes place, the metaverse is reintroduces much of our typical offline social dynamics. Space is limited. Presence must be maintained. Communication is in real time. Some of these elements are available on different social media platforms via live streaming and group chats. In the metaverse, these features become the routine experience. What does this mean for trolls? Celebrities? Experts?
