Unlocking the Future of NFT Memberships

"The open web is the best invention that mankind has ever put out" – Julien Genestoux

As memberships become the main business of the internet, it's increasingly important to have an open protocol for memberships. This is exactly what Julien has built with Unlock Protocol.

He talks to us about the future of managing memberships with NFTs, and how this is bringing power back to the communities. Julien breaks down the evolution of community from web2 to web3, and how this evolution has turned community members from commodities of the platforms they use, to owners of those assets. Instead of platforms profiting off users' data, the users now become directly incentivized and share in the upside.
