#027 - Welcome to another episode of Bounty Hunter, where we believe that contributing to a DAO is the best way to find engaging and rewarding work in the new Web3 economy. 

In today’s show I spoke with Ayyan Rahman, Co-Founder of Gateway — a platform that helps you to build your Web3 resume by participating in DAOs, earning credentials, and showcasing your achievements — all while owning a part of the network.

We discussed: how verified credentials help you build a reputation, what having ownership of your data really means, tips for becoming a core contributor at a DAO, and Soul-bound tokens vs Verified Credentials.

More about Gateway:

Web3 reputation is so hot these days, and there's a good reason. Most traditional Web2 companies evolved to have a bit of a perverse business model where they have access to the data about us and are able to share it at will to the highest bidder.

The promise of Web3 reputation is that we should own our data, and that we should control who gets to see our data. Not proud of your contributions at a particular NFT project? You should be able to set that aside, and showcase the work that you are actually proud of.

These Web2 platforms are also mostly built on self attested data. Which means that anyone can claim that they are the CEO of Twitter, or have created a dozen companies — even if this is completely false. But that’s about to change. 

Using technology like verified credentials, Gateway allows you to issue digital badges on the blockchain that can attest to the work that you’ve done in DAOs and other Web3 projects. The magic here is that they will be issued by the DAOs themselves and other trusted organizations.

This has huge ramifications into DAO onboarding and hiring — as you’ll see on this show.
