Beniamin Mincu (Elrond): "The metaverse is an unmissable opportunity".
Where is Elrond heading? In an exclusive interview with The Big Whale, the founder of the Elrond blockchain answers all the questions (and criticisms) raised by his project.
The Big Whale: You're in Paris for X-Day, an event you organised. What is the aim of this big gathering?
Beniamin Mincu: There are several aims! Firstly, to meet the community and the people behind projects on Erlond. It's also an opportunity to make announcements. We've been working hard over the last few months on our vision and long-term strategy for Elrond.
What is that strategy?
We're going to be launching new products and services with a much stronger on Web3 and metavers.
Is that why the boss of Yuga Labs (Bored Ape) is attending the event?
We're in contact with a lot of players in this ecosystem and Yuga Labs is one of them. More broadly, I think that metavers is an unmissable opportunity and that there is a huge amount to be done.
The current vision of metavers is very unambitious. Our belief is that we need to get users and businesses on board, and that we will need everyone, hence the presence of Yuga Labs and other players in the sector such as Improbable or Second Life.
Can Elrond be the blockchain for metavers?
