Meet Vzyn, a professional Web3 contributor in NFT Community Management and Advising, and also a Social Media Manager at @SuperVerseDao
💼 What were you doing before Web3?
Before I began working in Web3 full time in 2021, I studied Marketing in College and had an early career in the Finance Industry. Shortly after diving head first into NFTs with my roommates, I took the leap! Currently, I am the Social Media Manager for Super Studios (Impostors, GigaMart, SuperVerse).
🤔 How did you get into Web3?
All throughout college, I was interested and slightly invested in crypto and the blockchain tech. So once I got out of school, I started putting every check into my crypto wallet and began trading. I explored Defi and NFTs in 2021 and decided to make my own project, raising $50k at a $250k valuation.
🚀 What was your first crypto or NFT project?
My first Web3 project was a Gaming NFT called Crypto Commandos, and unfortunately after selling out a free mint collection, we failed at a paid mint attempt. We refunded everyone and put the project on hold due to the bear market, but I took the lessons I learned with me to push forward.
🧠 How would you explain what you do to someone outside of Web3?
Now, I currently work full-time as the Social Media Manager for Super Studios (Impostors, GigaMart, SuperVerse) directly under EllioTrades. When I explain to other people what I do, I just tell them I run the Twitter accounts for a couple NFT projects, make memes, plan marketing campaigns, and set up collabs.
💡 Which creator or thought leader do you enjoy learning from?
I enjoy learning how EllioTrades operates his company from the inside, and especially how to build a community from the ground up like we are doing at GigaMart. Working at Super Studios has taught me so much about the Web3 space and working with founders like him.
🥳 What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
The biggest highlight of my career so far would definitely be landing the position at Super Studios. I have gotten the opportunity to work with the biggest projects in the space like Impostors and Neotokyo as well as expand my network amongst many blue chip founders!
📈 What tech or crypto trend are you watching this year?
This year, I’m bullish on ZK Rollups and the Arbitrum chain! I’ve been seeing the hype slowly stack up and I believe these will be mainstream topics this year on top of the Ai trend we have already seen.
🤝 What advice would you give someone starting out in Web3?
I always recommend my friends who are curious in Web3 to hop on twitter and start following the community to get a feel for the vibes. Buy a cheap NFT with a good community to join and learn from. Don’t limit yourself to just coinbase, the real stuff is outside!
🎤 If you could do a TEDtalk on any topic, what would it be?
I would love to do a TED talk on how to build a community from the ground up in Web3 as I have experience doing this multiple times over! Many people do not understand the importance of this key step.
🚨 What is the one thing you would bring if you were stuck on a deserted Island?
I would bring my dogs so I wouldn’t get bored lol.
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.
