About Ready Layer One

Two long-time friends have a weekly podcast about what is going on in the crypto world, specifically within NEAR. Joe, a software architect, and developer, tries to guide listeners on the technical side of crypto. Jared looks at the community, narratives, branding, and adoption side of crypto. Their calls cover current topics on the technology, community, and economics of cryptocurrency and Web3 through the lens of the NEAR ecosystem.

For the past 10 years, he’s been focused on marketing content that amplifies the brand strategy and delivers the content globally for marketing and social media teams.
