🎙 New Episode 🎙

Hi, it’s Dana. Writing to let you know about our latest podcast episode, available now on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

There have been many communities building on-chain. But what would it mean for there to be an on-chain community that was actually a country?

This week, our guest on Web 2.5 is Chika Uwazie, the Co-Founder of Afropolitan, a digital nation with a mission of enabling all Africans to build and live abundant lives.

Afropolitan took inspiration from a thesis by Balaji Srinivasan, the ex-CTO of Coinbase and former Andreessen Horowitz partner. Balaji sees a future of network states, a series of cloud-first, land-later countries that are built around a shared ideology rather than a shared history or DNA.

In today’s episode, Chika shares Afropolitan’s founding story, what the community offers its holders, its vision for the future of decentralized nations, and much more.

Here’s a clip from this week's show:
