Grassroots Community ArtistWeb3 w/ Me
My guest today is Daniel Koeth or DK. DK was one of the first photographers to the We Accept Ash movement, one that is very personal to me as ASH is the cryptocurrency of destruction created by our favorite artist, Pak. That bond along with the fact that I totally connect with his work, has turned into one of the most energizing relationships in recent memory.
We start the conversation off in an untraditional way, exploring anonymity and pseudonymity. Starting with how I recently changed my Twitter to Zach French and no longer OffEdge, which prompted a deeper discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of being pseudonymous/anonymous in Web3.
Siblings “why you should buy one cube” lead DK down the Pak rabbit hole
