Siva Avvaru, Managing Director of yWhales Solutions, speaks with Daniel Seidler (DSide) and Ryan Anderson, Co-Founders of Bankless Consulting. They discuss the importance of building a strong community in the Web3 space. Seidler and Anderson emphasize that building a community is a marathon, not a sprint. They explain that brands must consistently put in effort to keep the community engaged and motivated. They also stress the importance of understanding that the community is for the people, not for the brand. Simply creating a community and expecting people to join is not enough.
