What were you doing before Web3?
How did you get into Web3?
I stumbled upon web3 in the late 2020 when we are finding ways to generate income because most jobs, especially mine, are affected by the pandemic. So I started studying how to do trading. It started with stocks then crypto then I totally geeked out on the potential of web3 in different industries.
What was your first crypto or NFT project?
My first crypto was CRO on http://Crypto.com if you’re familiar with that and of course, my first NFT was the FUD Shib on CRO marketplace and sadly I only just flipped one lol. I am bad being a degen hahahaha
How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
I just started a podcast called “Di Na To’ Drowing Podcast” and some of my topics are focused on Web3. Because IRL, most people only focus on gains especially money not on the potential and foundation of Web3.
Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
Tito Jopet and the CryptoartPH fam, Tezos PHL community, JQCrypto, Aswang on Web3 and outside web3 is grainydays, Sean Evans on Hot Ones, Artu Nepomuceno and Shaira Luna.
What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
Ohhh! I couldn’t do it without the community. Forever grateful for you guys. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that my art would be exhibited in physical galleries. Being exhibited on Meatspace Web3 Gallery and the recent Art Fair PH 2023.
What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
The potential of AI not just only in art but also in different industries and I don’t know if the rumors are true on GTA VI being on the blockchain 👀
What advice would you give someone starting out in Web3?
Emotions are deceitful. Don’t be blinded by 1000% gains and hype. Always go back to fundamentals.
If you could do a TED talk on any topic, what would it be?
WAGMMy ( When Art Gives Memes and Money)
What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted Island?
Ohh it’s like related to my NFT project, Lone Island. Shameless plug lol. Probably Lato-lato jk Does my dog counts? hahaha
