In this article, we’ll explore his thoughts on the importance of NFT communities and the future of NFTs. Get ready for a glimpse into the exciting NFT world with Guyaume.
💼 What were you doing before Web3?
I have an IRL job and a family so that keeps me pretty busy. Web3 really is a hobby/passion for me and it helps me disconnect from the daily routine.
🤔 How did you get into Web3?
I fist bought Bitcoin back in 2012 (should’ve held it 😅) and ETH in 2014. I’ve always been intrigued by the decentralization aspects of it but what really hooked me back in was NFTs in 2021.
🚀 What was your first crypto or NFT project?
The first project I minted was Superlative Apes, a BAYC derivative that was quite successful at first but it ended up being my first time being rugged in the NFT space. Set and community was unreal, they could’ve done great things honestly.
🧠 How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
It’s really hard to define, but I’d say it’s the next big step to come in technological evolution. Social Media was probably the last big tech thing. Web3 is what’s coming next and it includes a bunch of things (smart contracts, metaverses, digital ownership and more).
💡 Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
I am a big fan of Nikolas_ETH for many reasons. Firstly I just think that he has a BIG BIG brain and I also admire the fact that he left a 6 figure job at AWS to pursue his Web3 businesses (Utiliti, Moonsight AI & Hero Galaxy) and go all in. This takes balls and it just shows you that he wants to make a change in Web3 and do big things.
🥳 What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
I don’t have a specific one that comes to mind right now, but what I love the most and find the most rewarding is when I help others learn, achieve their goals and evolve in their careers.
📈 What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
I’m not watching for anything specific because everything moves and changes so fasts nowadays. Trends seem to last max a month now — crazy fast paced.
What I’m most excited about is to start seeing more and more BIG worldwide known brands hop in. It’s currently happening and they know they have to or else they’ll miss the train.
🤝 What advice would you give someone starting out in Web3?
Read about it, be curious and open minded, watch YouTube videos about it — inform yourself! Never click links unless they’re provided by an official source. Find cool and helpful communities to grow with (The Plague or Hero Galaxy are not great).
🎤 If you could do a TEDtalk on any topic, what would it be?
It’d have to be on leadership and how sports can be a great source of inspiration and learning for any person that has a role involving management. Lots of parallels possible when you look at how a professional sports team is ran at every layer of management (owner, GM, coach and player).
🚨 What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted Island?
Man that’s a tough one! I’d bring my family first, but if we’re talking about an object I’d bring my fishing rod or a Swiss Army knife I guess 😂.
POW stands for “Proof of Work.” It is a new feature article series in The Mega Maxi to highlight the savviest builders in the Web3 space.
