FSB Meetup w/ HiFi & DeFi

In collaboration with the HiFi & DeFi podcast, Music Innovation Hub organizes “FSB Meetup w/ HiFi & DeFi“: a series of monthly meetings to keep up with all the latest news from the music industry, featuring special guests and innovative new organizations and initiatives.

The season includes 5 meetups spread throughout the first semester of 2022, with topics such as Web3, Blockchain, Metaverse and DAO up for discussion. (the realization of these meetings) FSB Meetup w/ HiFi & DeFi pursues a twofold objective: the dissemination of innovative projects within the music industry and the building of the first Italian music-tech community.

HiFi & DeFi is a newsletter founded by Oliver Dawson, who has been working in the Italian music business for 20 years, covering a variety of roles ranging from publishing to communication. The newsletter provides a weekly collection of links, ideas, articles, and tweets related to the world of blockchain and the web3, offering the tools you need to navigate a world that is as exciting as it is difficult to read.
HiFi & DeFi is also a podcast, produced in collaboration with Matteo Tambussi of the Ethereum Foundation, which has hosted developers, artists and some of the most interesting Italian Web3 projects over the course of 8 episodes.
