Decentralized Flavor Savior w/ Giuseppe Stuto (@gstuto)Web3 w/ Me

My guest today is Giuseppe Stuto (https://twitter.com/gstuto). He is the first US-born member of his family who was from Italy. He is a deep technical thinker who does a great job of using analogies to explain his outlook on investing in Web3. He founded his first company fresh out of college, and sold it to DraftKings a few years later. Giuseppe started angel investing while at DraftKings, and ultimately partnered up to form 186ventures. He plays on his unique technical experience as a founder to help provide a value add to his portfolio companies. We go deep on the potential for Web3 infrastructure and developer tools.
