There are bad players with a reputation for promoting shady projects. Nash will do well to continue staying away from such people.
On the other hand, there are also credible voices and visionaries who would find Nash really revolutionary. I think the team should socialise and organise talks with this kind of people.
My top two suggestions are:
Andreas Antonopoulos - he is a crypto veteran and an advocate for true DEXes
Trace Mayer - he organised ‘proof of keys’ to remind the community that centralised exchanges are not safe.
