Ethereum Co-Founder Shares What’s Next for Web3
The crypto industry has changed significantly since Joseph Lubin helped found the Ethereum blockchain in 2015. While Vitalik Buterin may be the only co-founder still working directly on the platform, Lubin has worked tirelessly to build Ethereum’s application and community layers. Now focused on innovating as the CEO of ConsenSys, a leading Ethereum software company and the firm behind the MetaMask software wallet, Lubin has remained at the forefront of Web3 as the cultural shift it created continues to reorganize the creative and tech industries.
Speaking with nft now Co-Founder and CEO Matt Medved during a fireside chat at nft now and Mana Common’s The Gateway: A Web3 Metropolis, Lubin reflected on his on-chain career. He also provided insight into the state of the crypto and NFT spaces while looking toward the future.
In this episode of the nft now podcast, we cover Lubin’s candid thoughts on the fall of FTX, what’s next for Ethereum post-merge, the future of blockchain, and much more.
