Public Key Episode 24 preview: An end to wallet wars?

In this week’s episode, Co-founder & CEO of DynamicLabs Itai Turbahn joins our host, Ian Andrews (CMO) for a look at what a multi-chain, authentication-based wallet looks like in web3 and how we can go from “wallet wars” to interoperability. 

The conversation addresses the debate over how to balance privacy with information sharing, as Itai and Ian go deep into decentralized identity and how verifiable credentials could change the way we interact with our data in web3. 

Quote of the episode

“I think it comes down to a fundamental question of when you interact with someone, do you need to know everything about them or do you just need proof that they are who they say they are.” – Itai Turbahn (Co-Founder & CEO, Dynamic Labs)
