What if you owned your social profile & connections instead of Facebook? That’s Lens Protocol, a decentralized social network & web3 developer platform from cryptocurrency lender Aave's CEO Stani Kulechov. He joins us on PressClub to discuss how social will work in the web3 era and how you can be the user, not the product sold to advertisers.
Learn why the lack of social graph portability locks us into exploitative apps. Hear the Lens origin story based on Aave's success lending out billions through decentralized finance and Kulechov's childhood love of IRC instant messaging. Discover how peer-to-peer social networks work by giving users control over the rules and algorithms. And dig into how prismatic identity lets us be exactly who we want to be in different settings.
This PressClub will help you be yourself.
