Tech Intersect #40: Leigh Cuen-Crypto Journalism Meets "Thirst Trap" NFT Creativity
Oct 27, 2020 Episode 40

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Leigh Cuen is a tech reporter covering blockchain technology for publications such as Coindesk, Newsweek Japan, International Business Times and Racked. Her work has also been published by Teen Vogue, Al Jazeera English, The Jerusalem Post, Mic, and Salon.  

I invited Leigh on to talk about some of the latest topics and trends she is covering in the blockchain and crypto spaces and we spent a lot of time exploring the boom of thirst traps (aka sexy selfies) and feminist GIFs because they are selling like hotcakes on non-fungible token (NFT) markets, but-of course-not everyone is thrilled about this trend.

Leigh was challenged by the topic at first but through her reporting has come to appreciate the self-actualizing creative and final power born out of this unique way of levering NFTs. This is a must-listen episode to be sure!
