How to build a leading DeFi brand – Avalanche, with Jay Kurahashi-Sofue of Ava Labs
Avalanche is a highly scalable blockchain platform for decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments, and in our view, one of the benchmarks in blockchain marketing. Their channels offer a delightful stream of content serving both enterprises as well as the developer community. Leading these marketing efforts is Jay Kurahashi-Sofue, and it’s our pleasure to have him as our guest on this episode. Jay is the VP of Marketing at Ava Labs, the blockchain organisation building Avalanche. Ava Labs is on a mission to empower people to build an open, simple, and democratic internet of finance.
