Web3 & Crypto Ethos: Kevin Owocki's Insights on Regen Economy and Trust
Kevin Owocki is a true trailblazer in the web3 and crypto space, bringing his unique perspectives and values to the forefront of the industry. As the OG of Gitcoin and chaos magician at supermodular.xyz, Kevin has been at the forefront of building web3 solutions that are not only innovative but also regenerative, serve the greater good, and benefit the wider community.
Kevin Owocki’s views on Solarpunk, Cypherpunk and Lunarpunk Movements
Kevin Owocki is part of the solarpunk movement and considers himself a cypherpunk, solarpunk, and lunarpunk. Despite some criticisms of the solarpunk movement, Kevin believes it is 99.9% similar to the cypherpunk movement and shares the same values. He believes that the web3 community values privacy and strong cryptography, which is the basis of the cypherpunk movement.
Regenerative Crypto-Economic Movement
Kevin Owocki is involved in the regenerative crypto-economic movement and aims to build a monetary system that regenerates over time and benefits society in all forms, not just financial. He believes in the importance of creating an economy that prioritizes the greater good rather than being profit-driven.
“It depends on who you are and what you’re trying to use the technology for. We can program our values into our money, so what kind of monetary systems do we want to be involved in? If you’re abusive and manipulative, you can build Ponzi schemes. If you care about the environment and social good, you can build a system that reflects those values. Similarly, if you care about strong cryptography, you can build systems to support that. There’s no way to say, ‘I’m just one actor, and I would never project on the entire space like the whole space needs to do X.’ It’s really about the people who are coming into the space, what job they’re trying to do, and whether or not the system guides them toward achieving that job…”- Kevin Owocki
Gitcoin is one of Kevin’s most notable contributions to the web3 space. It is a decentralized platform that helps developers build web3 solutions. Kevin has been vocal about the importance of making the regenerative economy investable and raising awareness around the topic. He sees sub-segments such as Decentralized Science as being key areas of growth in the space and is experimenting with finding funding infrastructure for them using quadratic funding.
Decentralized Identity and Trustless Architecture
Kevin is also an advocate of decentralized identity, believing that people should be in control of their own identities. He questions the sustainability of trust, arguing that a neutral and decentralized infrastructure is necessary for the internet. Kevin believes that for friendships and communities, trust is essential, but for core infrastructure that could be abused, a more trustless architecture is preferable.
Kevin’s Thoughts on Mental Health and Physical Activity
Beyond his work in the web3 space, Kevin is also passionate about physical activity and spending time outdoors in nature. He believes in prioritizing mental health and manages his psychology through running, yoga and spending time with his family.
In conclusion, Kevin Owocki is a visionary leader in the web3 and crypto space, dedicated to building a regenerative and sustainable monetary system that serves the greater good. Through his work at Gitcoin and his podcast, the Green Pill, Kevin aims to spread awareness and educate people about the importance of the regenerative crypto-economic movement and beyond.
