#24 Liron Shapira: Web3 Critique & Coinbase Investor

Liron Shapira is known as the guy who write twitter threads about web3 use cases including Axie Infinity & Helium.

But before becoming twitter famous, he is also a founder & angel investor and currently runs a YC backed startup called Relationship Hero.

The irony in his angel investments is he made life changing money by investing in Coinbase which was a 500x return on his investment.

Full conversation includes:

  • Failure with Quixey (50M+ Series C)
  • Relationship Hero (YC Backed)
  • Seed Investment in $COIN (listen for exit multiple)
  • Investing in Russian Bonds
  • Web3 Use cases (cross border payments, helium, NFTs in gaming, Uber on Web3, Identity)
