Today I sat down with superstar translator Jenga Jojo to talk all things Yearn and other bits and pieces! Jenga JoJo is known for their calm and easy going nature and visionary perspectives.
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself. How long have you been with Yearn and what team are you a part of? Been here since July 2021, currently part of the marketing/outreach squad, specifically working with translations
Q: Tell us a bit about what made you want to join Yearn? There are few DAOs in the cryptoverse which are as aligned to the long term vision of crypto as yearn. Andres’ story, the blue pill ethos and the fantastic pseudonyms contributors at yearn are why I joined. The whole idea of a headless org, driven by it’s contributors is demonstrated by yearn and I vibe with these memes
Q: What does your day with Yearn look like? I’m a part time contributor so I check the communications repo weekly. I try to follow the conversations in the TG (telegram) groups but TG is not as friendly as discord when it comes to keeping up with stuff. I also like to keep myself up to date on what’s happening in the crypto and how that could help yearn in someway. I personally realize the value of lores and memes and really enjoy thinking about how these could be created at yearn. Recently I produced a song with some contributors at yearn building on the blue pill memes
Q: What are the most impressive parts of Yearn for you? Working with legendary contributors in the space, contributing to a completely headless org and being pseudonyms to the core are the most impressive parts for me
Q: What kind of impact do you want to have not just in Yearn but across the space? Imo, crypto will one day compete with nation-states not just to effectively manage public goods, but also to be the very foundation of culture and play for societies. I want to help build this world
Q: What about the culture at Yearn do you like? I like the fact that when the org needs leadership, leaders emerge. Knowingly or otherwise, we are all designing a complex system.
Q: What are some of your hobbies and interests? I love listening to podcasts, audiobooks, travelling, working out and interacting with folks from diverse backgrounds
Q: Tell us a fun fact about you! I’m a cat person who is allergic to cats 😭
