Adam Jackson – User Owned Marketplaces (Braintrust)
2390

Adam Jackson is the Founder of Braintrust. Braintrust is a user-owned, blockchain-based freelancer marketplace. What fascinated me about this conversation is that it sheds light on what the future could look like for user-owned networks. 

And, how the governance built by the Braintrust team is built that allows aligned incentives between investors, freelancers, and companies they serve. This concept is part of a larger shift to how the creator economy will function and how freelancers can create value while retaining power in the networks that they create for.
