💼 What were you doing before Web 3?
I’m working as operations manager for an outsourcing company in the Philippines and international.
🤔 How did you get into web3?
My bestfriend, which is also known in the web3 space, told me about blockchain technology and fell in love with the endless possibilities.
🚀 What was your first crypto or NFT project?
My first NFT project was “cyberkongz” and learned flipping for the first time. Life changing it is.
🧠 How would you explain what you do to someone outside of web3?
Alternate reality; endless possibilities, new memories and new opportunities where you can expand or grow your real life skills. A world where everyone matters.
💡 Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
Myself. There’s a lot of veteran people/creator out there in the space which teaches new people about web3. But the greatest creator is within you. Web3 is like you’re in a big galaxy where every second you will learn something and discover new things. I enjoy learning things to different people. Those people are great and skillful but the greatest creator at the end of the day would be yourself because you are cultivating new ideas on your mind with the help of those people you’ve met.
🥳 What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
Sold out NFT collection twice! Created NFT community! Trended on OpenSea which I thought before was impossible for someone like me.
📈 What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
AI integrating in blockchain.
🤝 What advice would you give someone starting out in web3?
Focus on what you can learn and start from there. Space maybe fast-paced but it’s not a race! Learn and develop things on your own relaxing pace so you will not get burnt out. It’s okay to lose! But don’t quit!
Nothing is impossible as long as you are true to your vision and keep believing on thy self.
“Walang imposible sa taong hindi sumusuko.”
🎤 If you could do a TEDtalk on any topic, what would it be?
Siguro I’ll named it, “The greatest you”.
🚨 What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted island?
Tool kit! As long as you have the right tools to survive you will be ok!
