Nate Alex's MegaSpaces Live Blog!

Famed for Chainfaces, Chainfaces Arena, Secret Project, SquigglyWTF, and general Twitter tomfoolery, Nate Alex is bringing together the top minds in NFTs and web3 for a MEGASPACES on Twitter starting tonight at 5:00 p.m. ET. 

The space is being broken into five separate one hour panels of founders and industry leaders, like Josie Bellini, Andy8052, Scott Lewis, and more.

The event will kickoff at 5:00 p.m. ET, with the final panel slated to go live at 9:00 p.m. ET. 

You can view the lineup and participants in Nate's tweet below or join the space here. But...for those who can't attend, or don't to attend - I've decided to sit in a chair for five hours and create a historical record by live blogging the event.
