What was your journey like to get where you are?
The journey is great. I have never regretted it a bit. I have experienced the good and bad times for cryptocurrency and blockchain. From times where big companies and governments laugh at my vision to right now demanding advice on how they can buy plots of land on metaverses.
Things have changed so much.
In a simpler phrase, what is your company exactly doing?
I am the Chairman of BigONE Exchange. BigONE is a global cryptocurrency exchange that provides a platform for trading various cryptocurrencies. It was founded in 2017 and registered in the Netherlands. The group operates in Russia, Brazil, Vietnam, Seychelles, Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, providing marketing, investment, and blockchain technology research & development. We are constantly ranked top 30-50 on Coinmarketcap.
What about Metaverse are you most excited for in the future?
The ability to overlap and live in both digital and physical lives simultaneously gets me excited for the future. Imagine you can be earning twice as fast if you live in both worlds. Isn’t this what most of us are dreaming about?
Your experience in the metaverse will be greatly enhanced with the introduction of virtual reality (VR) based wearables. Again, imagine traveling the world in the comfort of your home. The VR equipment will be an alternative to your computer screens and will bring the internet to the next level.
Why should we be paying attention to the Metaverse?
Innovations like metaverse bring many new opportunities. It is the beginning of a new era within our time. In metaverse, you are not just browsing the web but you are in the web, in another universe.
If you think mobile devices and the internet change our lives. Then metaverse will succeed both of them. If operated in the right manner, it will change the way we interact in the same way that mobile devices have changed society today.
“Embrace the technology. Get ready for the future.”
Meta Universe may be the next new Internet era that will succeed the mobile Internet.
