Who we are?

MINDS AT PLAY is where I explore the curious intersection of blockchain tech, education, the anthropology of play, and digital sanctuaries for self-expression, learning and fun. We delve into game-based learning frameworks, and discover why game design (especially web3 game design) is the essential skill for optimal cognition & flourishing in the 21st century.

My name is Cynthia Gentry, I have pioneered gamification primitives for web3 ecosystems, and have been teaching about and working in the nascent and, at times, chaotic crypto industry for the last 4 years.

What you will get?

You will gain insight into the most fulfilling and lucrative career path for anyone who is equally as analytical as they are creative + receive wisdom from the designers, engineers, economists, educators and visionaries creating new pathways for human flourishing by leveraging game-design thinking, AI and blockchain technology. Also, you will occasionally get my thoughts on why game design should be the primary form of education for any country that is serious about nurturing the geniuses of tomorrow.
