[26:10] “In the web 3 world, what we’ve embraced on our end is getting stuff out a lot earlier and maybe in states that we’re not 100% comfortable with. But, it’s always paid off to get something out to an audience and get their input versus keeping it inside and just building that extra feature or adding that polish. At the end of the day that stuff matters but at the same time I think it matters more to get things out in front of people.”
