Bringing Web2 to Web3 and the Future of Decentralized Storage with Jonathan Victor
On this episode of the DIVI Crypto Podcast, our host Steve McGarry is joined by Jonathan Victor, the Ecosystem Lead for NFTs and Gaming at Protocol Labs. Steve and our guest start the show by discussing Jonathan’s introduction to crypto and the Web3 space and where he saw an opportunity to make an impact. They dive into the infrastructure that a lot of projects are using, like AWS, and they unpack the potential and importance of decentralized storage. Jonathan shares what Protocol Labs is focused on and how they essentially want to change the way that the internet moves data around for a better experience for users. Steve asks about the current disadvantages of decentralized storage and what they are doing to combat those at Protocol Labs. Jonathan also talks about how he is excited to see new trends in computing influence the design of new systems being created and how these new applications could help with mainstream adoption.
