Tekin Salimi is the founder of dao5, a Web 3 investment fund founded last year in 2022. Formerly Tekin was at Polychain Capital. Dao5 is an experimental cryptocurrency investment fund that will convert into a decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. We dive into the biggest DAO drama from the last year, why Tekin is so bullish and excited about DAOs, Tekin’s investment thesis while he was at Polychain, his switch to focus mostly on the Ethereum ecosystem at dao5, Web 3 infrastructure, NFTs, regulations, his thoughts on FTX, and so much more. Before we get into that, first Tekin will tell us his current focus at dao5.
