The Roundtable: Birth of the Web3 Creator

Platforms like NFT.com are providing the tools for entrepreneurs to begin building on the blockchain.

When Web2 upended the first iteration of the Internet, everything changed, from how we shop, to how we communicate, to how we learn. To discuss the past, present, and future of the Internet, Roundtable's Rob Nelson convened a panel of experts including Jordan Fried, Founder of NFT.com, Taylor Ferber, host of "Cancel Me, Baby!" podcast, and Tommy Petrov, CMO of Free2Shred.com. In this segment, the panel discusses the formation of the Web3 creator economy.

Jordan Fried explains that NFT.com aims to close some of the current gaps between creators and Web3.

"We are focused on a suite of self-service offerings, which would essentially take the entire pain out of having a creator get set up and enable that creator economy to form. We've just started for a very small pool of people to issue the ability to own their presence with nft.com," he says. 

"If you build up a massive following on that tailored profile, you can sell that you actually sell that to someone and you sell that profile. We're one of many companies in the ecosystem actively working on building that capability for creators to be able to come and monetize in a very differentiated way."

As Web3 continues to evolve, Tommy Petrov anticipates that the ongoing world political and economic crises will spur wider interest in Web3.

"Crisis is what boosts technology. The unpredictable world we have pushes the new technology to be adopted," he says.
