Tales of Web3 Tailors Podcast | Track 13

Check out the latest Web3 Tailors Podcast where we sat down with dplusgraphics! dplusgraphics was first inspired to enter the web3 space after an unfortunate but also far too common failing by the traditional financial system. From there, he started to explore more of the digital fashion space and the power of NFTs through provenance, transparency and undercutting malicious middlemen. The rest is history- he's planning his first realm launch with a really exciting focus around sports based fashion and jerseys for metaverse native football teams and more!
