What were you doing before Web3?
How did you get into Web3?
To be honest I was just looking for a pastime, I got laid off during the pandemic the company had to shut down its operation because of the quarantine.
The risk of getting the virus back then was very brutal and getting exposed with it living with 2 senior citizen at home is a major risk. I learned bit by bits of information through playing Axie Infinity.
What was your first crypto or NFT project?
My first crypto would probably be Bitcoin but not an actual bitcoin that you store on a wallet. It was just stored inside my hard drive.
Back then, in the days not sure what year was that but it was the year where torrenting, download movies was being used and in order for you to get prioritize or get exclusive perks in terms of seeding you have to leave your pc/computers open 24/7 and get a bitcoin which will be used to pay for this perks.
Bitcoin back then was relatively cheap no value or some say it would change the way how we use money in this world. Back in the torrent world you need to download a lot of stuff that are cracked, software or even games to seed on your computer leaving tons of electricity used at the same time mining bitcoin by using the seeders cpu usage.
There are some relating articles talking about bitcoin mining in torrenting. Some are obsolete some still exist but who knows.
How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
This is a space where everyone is welcome. A business man, writer, gamer, content creator, developer event host/s or DJ.
Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
Paulo Coelho also known as The Alchemist which gives me this quote always “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
The biggest highlight i could have ever imagine is being able to work relating to the gaming industry. Back then I’m really a gamer by heart used to grind hours, days, weeks even months just to get to where I am right now.
I started as a regular scholar of Kapital DAO eventually got offered a moderator position then soon after pursuing what I love doing I eventually became The Head of Business Development or Growth of Kapital DAO within 6 months I was able to get to where I am right now and continously develop myself and grow to be a better person in this space.
What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
For the longest time I’m still into the development of Augmented Reality known as “AR” on how it can benefit the future of technology into the lives of every single individual.
What advice would you give someone starting out in Web3?
DYOR is always the key to success. Because Data would be your ammo in this space without DATA you’ll be left out behind or forgotten.
If you could do a TED talk on any topic, what would it be?
If I would be doing a TEDtalk the topic would be “The Space where everyone is accepted” The purpose or goal for this is that no matter who you are or what you are you’ll be welcomed in this space it can be by profession or passion whatever it is you’re welcome here.
What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted Island?
My duck feather pillows because why not haha.
