Nicole Yap is the founder of 8SIAN, a global, inclusive community that brings together members who share admiration for Asian cultures. The project gathers a large list of influential supporters such as Steve Aoki, Matt Higgins of Shark Tank, and Jaeson Ma, the founder of 88Rising. For us, whose only single NFT buy almost went to zero, this pod is a masterclass on what a successful NFT project and community should be like when managed right.

In today's episode, we covered: Nicole's start to entrepreneurship by reselling luxury fashion wear like Supreme, finding out about and buying Bitcoin at $80,  operating and owning franchisee outlets of Instea, Why she is bullish on NFTs & Cryptocurrencies, how she got into NFTs after learning about VISA's acquisition of Cryptopunks, how being active on NFT discord channels led to her wanting to start 8SIAN, the unique aspects of 8SIAN's roadmap, establishing partnerships with renowned web 2.0 companies like Cider, Uniqlo & Royal Selangor, the unit economics of NFTs, pre-launching, and marketing of 8SIAN, building up and policing the community, how she built up 8SIAN's team, her thoughts on the markets today and how she manages her time wisely and efficiently.
