Jay Steinback is the Co-Founder, CEO, and visionary of yWhales, aiming to drive communities globally to implement, innovate, and lead the next evolution of the internet. He founded yWhales at the behest of hundreds of business professionals around the planet that were eager to learn and invest in the upcoming Web3 transition.

  • Jay is receiving high-volume inquiries from people who are interested in the venture
  • Lots of capital was pulled off but smart investors are into it knowing that zero is not an option but it’s up to the technology
