Don’t scan another QR code until you listen to this

Adam Russell

Adam Russell, cybersecurity expert and cofounder of REV3AL, joins me to discuss cybersecurity, cryptos, DeFi, and the metaverse.

In this wide-ranging interview, Adam shares what led him to start REV3AL—a company that authenticates digital assets like non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to protect investors from fraud. He explains how easy it is to get scammed by QR codes… and which apps you can trust.

Adam also breaks down Web 2.0 vs. Web 3.0 in layman’s terms… and the difference between “open” and “controlled” metaverses.

And he explains why the metaverse will eventually go mainstream… what it’ll look like in five years (think The Matrix or Ready Player One)… and why cybersecurity will be needed at multiple levels.
