Robin Schmidt is Supermassive.one. He is also the head of multimedia at The Defiant, where he produces some of the highest quality videos documenting the rise of "decentralized finance." He's Defiant. An artist. And a sensation hunter. Today, he's filling out CoinDesk's version of the Proust Questionnaire, an interview form popular in the French writer's day that asks a series of short questions and expects short answers. Although the survey seems prosaic, it may reveal something about Schmidt's "true" character. He is a speaker at CoinDesk's Consensus Festival. If you'd like to take the survey, you can find it here.
