Bootstrapping a Career in Crypto w/ Nick Westlake (Offchain Labs)

In the crypto industry, the focus often centers on technology and rapid ecosystem developments, overshadowing the human dynamics that drive progress. Crypto stands out because it lacks traditional pathways or recruiting systems guiding individuals towards their life's work. Early adopters must forge their own paths and construct careers around blockchain. In this episode, Nick Westlake shares his journey from a Discord participant to a prominent connector in De-Fi while working at Offchain Labs. His story underscores the qualities that contribute to success in this field: a passion for one's work, the capacity to think ambitiously grounded in real-world experience, and an affable, generous disposition.
