Episode Info: Most of us spend a significant amount of time cultivating our online assets. And yet, we don’t actually own our slice of the digital economy. Our social media accounts and even our personal websites can be censored or taken away from us at any time by the big companies that control them. But the decentralized web is different. Matthew Gould and Bradley Kam are the cofounders of Unstoppable Domains, a crypto startup that builds censorship-resistant websites and sells blockchain domain names to fund the gateway to the decentralized web. Prior to Unstoppable, Matthew and Brad both served on the team at Talkable, the leading online platform for referrals and loyalty marketing. Today, Matthew and Brad join us to discuss what differentiates blockchain startups from traditional internet companies, explaining how they knew Unstoppable could be sustainable business.
