I was going to start this post off in a generic way -- with some brief reflections and takeaways from the past year.
But honestly, so much has happened that it became daunting to even attempt to accurately capture (let alone articulate) what transpired in 2021 -- both for the crypto space and for my personal life. So daunting that it prevented me from even putting proverbial pen to paper to draft this article.
I’ll leave it at this: 2021 was the best year yet. For crypto. For me.
Years of hard work validated. Quizzical looks from my peers at McKinsey. Disapproving remarks from my relatives. Outright disappointment and worry from my parents.
2021 was a monumental year for crypto.
ATHs for BTC and ETH, jpeg summer, alt L1s, DeFi 2.0, dog coins, the birth of DAO gurus, the rebrand to Web3.
Crypto broke into the mainstream mindshare, and the floodgates of innovation were open.
We witnessed some amazing product launches: Uniswap v3, Curve v2, Arbitrum One, Optimistic Ethereum, Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Some personal news: I’ll be joining Aave as a Product Manager to lead Web3 experiments!
I’m excited to work alongside gigabrains like Stani, Nicolo, Rebecca, and the rest of the Aave family as we pioneer the frontier of crypto 👻
Why am I building Web3 experiments?
