Neumann has helped found two separate startups that involve crypto: Flow and Flowcarbon. Flow hasn’t made the details of its plan public, but they include a digital wallet for handling cryptocurrencies, according to people familiar with the matter. The wallet would also offer other financial services, such as allowing users to connect a bank account.
Crypto tokens offer a new way to build a sense of community among a large group of people. Flow investor Marc Andreessen hinted in a blog post at the company’s interest in connection, saying that “giving renters a sense of security, community, and genuine ownership has transformative power for our society.”
