My guest today is Dark Forest.
DF is a full-time DAO member at Index Co-Op
The Index Co-Op is straight from science fiction as it is a decentralized autonomous asset manager that is governed, maintained and upgraded by its users.
DF is a methodologist focused on the Metaverse Index. This product, called MVI is squarely focused on metaverse-related projects in our ecosystem. He is constantly reviewing different projects and will bring them to the DAO so it can vote on whether to add it into the index or pass.
Having a financial entity like this that is owned and governed by its users is mindblowing, total departure from the current structure of the traditional financial system
Dark Forest also has an awesome newsletter and podcast called Metaportal which dives into a range of defi, NFT and metaverse related topics, highly suggest you check it out.
If you want to dive into the future of finance then this is the episode for you.
Please enjoy my conversation with Dark Forest.

This enables memberships to not only be ultra secure but super easy to manage as its all done through a couple clicks through a wallet. Julien was born for web3. He has been coding ever since he was a teen - constantly tinkering and building different software products but always thought there was better architecture for the internet. When he discovered web3 it was game over. We discuss Juliens background, Unlock protocol and how the many of the problems with the internet stem from the fact that it currently has an ad-driven business model. Engagement means more money which means creating outrage is the most profitable strategy. Julien is building a future that creates a new business model that will fix many of the deep rooted issues and create a better internet.
