‘Mona& Frens: Web3 Is A Joke’ to Take Aim at Lighter Side of Internet Evolution in Bitcoin Week Miami Event

The fintech industry has taken its lumps along with other sectors during the post-pandemic global market turmoil but innovators and insiders continue to build the infrastructure of a bold Web3 revolution that includes a worldwide transformation of financial transaction philosophies.

In the wake of well-known banking setbacks that have been part of the ups and downs of the fintech sector’s news cycle, creative comedy minds are celebrating the lighter side of life with the industry-focused comedy roast series Mona&Frens, established by ground-breaking South Asian stand-up laugh-generator Mona Shaikh.

“Mona& Frens: Web3 Is A Joke” will provide a night of entertainment at the upcoming Bitcoin Week Miami on May 18. (Frens is a platform designed to help community managers of DAOs and other Web3 projects in NFTs, DeFis, gaming, etc., thus part of the joke.)

Mona’s comedic friends participating in the event include Aaron and Austin Arnold, hosts of the super-popular Altcoin Daily channel; Brittany Brave, the on-air talent at Miami’s HITS 97.3 radio station; Oriel Rodriguez, from Miami Improv; Miami-based comedians Chris Kinback and Kersi Asare.

The event is not simply designed as an evening of comedy — as part of Bitcoin Week Miami’s celebration of everything surrounding hyperbitcoinization, the Web3 Is A Joke event will also deliver a fresh learning experience about the world of crypto, NFTs, Web3 and the cultural importance of the creator economy.

“Sink your teeth into everything, from the essential questions you were always too nervous to ask, kick-start your journey to becoming well-versed in the area, and even get your hands dirty building the most cutting-edge technologies,” a news release about the event states (

The event also promises a famous personality guest appearance to be revealed during the show, and an opportunity to network with fellow Bitcoiners and Web3 enthusiasts at an after-roast party.
