In this article, we’ll delve deeper into Siftcroix’s work and explore the impact he has made in the Web3 community.
💼 What were you doing before Web3?
Prior to Web3, I was working in the corporate world in the field of sales, marketing, and people management.
🤔 How did you get into Web3?
My interest in cryptocurrency started in 2017. I bought my first crypto tokens in 2018.
With the pandemic and being stuck at home, I remembered my tokens and was amazed at how their value had grown. So I got into crypto trading and joined groups until I got involved in an NFT gaming projects.
I immersed myself in understanding the technology and the communities surrounding it and how I could fit in. I became active in those groups. From there, I became a moderator and took on some roles. I mostly work community management and marketing.
🚀 What was your first crypto or NFT project?
I remember I had some extra money (a few thousand pesos) which I used to buy some bitcoin in early 2018. The first NFT project I got involved in was as part of the community management team for LOCGAME.
🧠 How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
I’ll probably start by asking them questions, like ‘Do you want to have full control over your digital footprint? And’ ‘How important is it for you to secure your documents, records, and hold proof of them?’
These are some of the questions I will be asking. It is important for me to know and understand the person I am speaking with first to make explaining things easier.
If they are interested, I will invite them to join Web3 communities. Since Web3 is still a new and evolving concept, we are all constantly learning.
💡 Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
I personally like getting my insights from Guy Turner of Coin Bureau and CZ of Binance, among others. There are many great people in the cryptocurrency space who offer valuable insights and knowledge that we can all learn from.
🥳 What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
So far, the biggest highlights for me have been the opportunities to contribute to the advancement of local Web3 projects. And help fellow Web3 enthusiasts in the field of community building by sharing our learnings and best practices.
📈 What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
It will be interesting to see how Web3 evolves. Additionally, keeping ourselves updated on the advancements in artificial intelligence and the evolution of government regulations on crypto is definitely important.
🤝 What advice would you give someone starting out in Web3?
Let’s continue learning!
🎤 If you could do a TEDtalk on any topic, what would it be?
Sharing insights and learnings in Web3 community development.
🚨 What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted Island?
If I knew that I might get stuck on a deserted island, I would definitely make sure to avoid it.
However, if for some reason I did end up there, a swiss army knife would be the first thing I would bring with me.
Survival would be my top priority in that situation.
