The Artist at the Core of Web3 

Sebastian firmly feels that Web3 can enable artists and give them new chances. One way Mastercard assists artists in navigating the fascinating world of Web3 is via the Mastercard Artist Accelerator program.

In the Web3 age, Sebastian thinks authenticity, community, and culture will be crucial to brand development.
