As the gaming industry evolves to meet the challenges and opportunities of Web3, could it drive the mass adoption of crypto?

Amy Wu leads investment, M&A, and gaming initiatives at cryptocurrency exchange FTX. She speaks with Azeem Azhar about how she evaluates crypto and Web3 as an investor, how she expects the gaming landscape to change in the next two years, and why the community that comes with NFT ownership is more important to her than potential profit.

They also discuss:

  • How Web3 games will be different from traditional games.
  • Why hiding the mechanics of blockchain technology may be key to the Web3 gaming “killer app” that gains mass adoption.
  • The truth about what it’s like to be on the board of a DAO.
