Today we focus on distrust and what it means to live in a world of genuine, fake and fraudulent trust. In a world where every day you are surrounded by information that directs your decision making and purchasing habits, how can you be sure what you are basing your decisions on are real. Ahmed and Nic are joined by Damu Winston, author of “I Don't Trust You, But Blockchain Will Help”.

If you could architect a new internet where privacy is in the users’ control, how would you go about doing that? Richard Muirhead, Founder and General parter of Fabric Ventures articulates why and how a new privacy-centric construct of the internet, commonly known as Web 3, would take place. We discuss why Web 3, the ‘Can't be evil’ motto, how to convey Web 3 to traditional investors, and the intersection of Web 3, enterprise and regulation.
