How to Build Community Through Ownership with Roham Gharegozlou of Dapper Labs

If you've heard of NFTs (non-fungible tokens), it's likely thanks to the work of Roham Gharegozlou, the Co-Founder and CEO of Dapper Labs. The NFT company has created some of the most viral brands out there--from CryptoKitties to NBA Top Shot. With a mission to bring play to crypto, Dapper Labs has been named one of the most innovative gaming companies by Fast Company and has created some of the most broadly used applications in the history of crypto. Roham shares how NBA Top Shot scaled to over one million users, why he thinks of NFTs as the next evolution of social media, and why entrepreneurship requires a healthy balance of optimism and paranoia.
