34. What's an NFT? Why do you care? with Jessie Armstrong

Season #2

Jessie Armstrong

Jessie is a wife, the mother of a toddler, and a web3 enthusiast. After losing her job while 8 months pregnant, she started down a path of self-discovery that led to finding herself and remembering what it’s like to feel joy.

I invited her to join us on the podcast to educate us. And WOW! She did not disappoint!

Here are the takeaways

1. You don't have to wait for someone to show you, you can figure things out now

2. Follow people who are sharing ideas and learn from them

3. It's worth learning bout NFTs, Blockchain, Web3, and Crypto because it's becoming more mainstream

4. An NFT is a non-fungable token. It's a unique asset that lives on the block chain. Its uniquely valuable in the same way your personal cell phone is valuable to you in a way that an identical model of a phone belonging to someone else isn't of as much value to YOU.

5. Crypto and BitCoin are digital currencies that live on the BlockChain.

6. Block Chain is a form of decentralized information with many different computers monitoring the same information. The opposite would be centralized information all stored in one place such as google.

7. Web 3 is a more decentralized platform. Web 1 was in the early 90s, a write era, and was decentralized. Web 2 is our current era and has been around since blogs and social media came out, it is a read-and-write era.

8. The percentage of women being involved is minute. Women and non-binary people deserve to be a part of this.

9. We have the opportunity to create the world we want to live in.
