In conversation with Colborn

In this episode of Fakewhale Live, host Jesse Draxler and Colborn discuss the history and aims of the Museum of Crypto Art.

At the beginning of the conversation, Colborn talks about his childhood and how it shaped his interest in art, specifically crypto art, as well as his competitive gymnastics career and how it helped him develop discipline and creativity.

Then Colborn discusses how living in duality has helped him find equilibrium and how it has helped him reconcile his two identities throughout his life: Originally a gymnast, he transitioned to finance, to then enter the crypto industry, and is now a smart contract developer for Ethereum.

A note is made about the disconnection many teenagers feel, and how cryptocurrency has helped them find a space to be genuine and vulnerable, with reference to the crypto world and how it has helped Colborn connect with himself.
