Veteran actor David Bianchi spoke to Decrypt’s Jason Nelson right before a public table read for Bianchi’s upcoming drama series „RZR“, to be distributed through Gala Films. The show is already greenlit and will be set in a dystopian future Los Angeles, with Ethereum and other digital assets as part of the plot. Bianchi also conducted two NFT drops to build engagement from fans.

Tezos co-founder Kathleen Breitman also appeared on stage at Web Summit in Lisbon, discussing the Tezos blockchain’s use of a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception, her admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization, and NFT gaming with Decrypt’s Stephen Graves.

The evening was sponsored by Polygon, Filecoin Foundation, Lamina1, Async, BeetsDAO, The Gold Mask, Gem Set, Breakout, Anonymous, Infinite Objects, Ape Water, Decentralized Pictures, and Vault 721.
