Moreover they are paying with credit cards This is fantastic for the industry as we strive to bring in the next one billion participants If this trend continues we expect that products like Moon Pays will find more demand beyond today is crypto first NFT buyers as it becomes just as easy to purchase an NFT as it is your coffee at Starbucks DiNunuzio said DiNunzio said that the trick to the Web3 ecosystem is obfuscation of the complexities of the technology itself the less a consumer has to understand about a blockchain or wallet or the mechanics of how cryptocurrencies work then the more likely they are to engage with a product.

This fundamentally shapes our product strategy at Jambb and our decision for example to work with Moon Pay Ideally the inclusion of celebrities in Moon Pays funding round is an indicator that global noncrypton ative fan bases are interested in participating in the development of products in the Web3 world and this is likely to accelerate adoption of this technology and in turn broaden the scope of those who participate in it Its great to see.Share
