Who is Rico? Please come out and make it the first time we come up. Philip Lord's hands. I hear the not one more chair. Hello, Google. If you know, of a blockchain continues to evolve at the speed of light and because it continues to evolve with the speed of light, there's a lot of innovation in this space and one of the latest Innovations is known as that give me five by is the world's. The word says is gaming in defy combining together, but it's actually much more than that trying to combine several technologies that have been around for some time

for those that have been in the IT industry for a long time. You realize that a lot of innovation that exists and I teach today. Is because the gaming industry actually funded a lot of the chief research and ID and this includes obviously the chips that today actually do mining in the the visual cards Mining ethereum, the result of the Jimmy V keishin in in the early days, but give me if I specifically it's looking at 4th and 4th and K. What is gaming and I think if you have seen any presentation that is going up here

today, there's always something. And and if he's so then if she has become your world that has become very important. The third word is Define define stands for decentralized. Finance allows you to run a vampire application or smart contract. The message either written in a language like celebrity or some equivalent language depending on which blockchain it runs and it allows you to identify the rules that a drive inside the blockchain through the various know, the

relationship between individuals that are part of that Block Chain in the last game called out another name for decentralized, autonomous organization, extremely important because it's a way to create modern organization. Now has a blocks and seven transactions. Per second will not be able to suspend, but now I ever as the blockchains become faster and faster. I think dial is one of the important technologies that allow us to establish the relationship between and automatically allow them to make decisions

for the decisions. So we have a very Diversified panel that the summer. From investment from already, run storage, nnfd, projects, some run, Dr. Organizations. That organize a lot of events. So do it for about that will start is basically very simple. I'll get everybody to spend a few minutes introducing themselves. And then a little bit of their opinions or their inside expert insight into gamify and how they see it going and then we'll take it from there. So I'll start with the Nikita here. What is yours? You again? I spoke earlier this

morning. So, yep. My name is nikhil Desai, Chef wear based out of Dubai. I'm from Houston Texas. We run a leading cryptopia and advisory firm, but we've also started to Luna Vista. See where we're investing in the projects that come on board, which is which has been incredible for us, especially because a lot of our projects are in Game 5 in the game by industry. Good morning, or good afternoon. Welcome, please introduce yourself and the areas that you cover and as it applies to give me for.

My name is originally from Germany. SPC company in Germany with a dedicated funds for blockchain. And yeah, we are very excited about campfire and have made some Investments and are looking forward to talk to you all about this topic. Never have Rico here with someone or several projects in the area of any of these. But now it's 10 ft plus plus plus higher than the RICO pan from sanctum, Global Ventures. My partner doesn't show in 200 g in the Bitcoin space invested more than a few projects is

Lifetime in. Douglas is alone for a few funds so we can leave you set up a new funk all the time. And hence. We are looking to invest in a tier-1 tier-2 funds-of-funds and o's. In to L1 L2, blockchain simple structures and we are focusing a lot into. And if he can give me find us before this dumbass fault that you can tell it's named, We are on, John traditional fund will invest in the tech biology packet for a organizers. From the cam is our platform that will be organizing more events in upcoming months in Dubai as well.

We are our investor now and we are also on Jupiter estorada. Where is nice to have our sanctum SS division where we are moving into helping properties language in Venezuela. And which road you will, thank you. I guess I glass today with traditional Corporate Finance receipt, but we invested a lot and blocks and protection. A fine example to do what we did last week. We listed as back on NASDAQ and we'll be looking for some tacos and completely go into that Jose father,

Three Sons. I'm learning a lot of creeps Hollywood Gaming is an extremely important industry in our business. On many of you have been around the crypto for the last seven or 10 years probably heard of something called Mount dogs. That was the first exchange that's got massively hacked and a lot of BBC, got extracted from it. What? Most people don't realize this mouth guard was primarily in exchange for games. So people who invested in games were using mouth guards as the way to monetize what elements they were earning in gaming. So I gave me an

invitation is extremely important, because people play games for long time, to learn swords, they were personalities and others. And as a result, they are able to trade them now, with the 7 ft. What were you able to do? Is combined the two together. The nice thing about gaming is that it has massive attraction about 2 years ago. Just a little bit before covid. There were several events that got hailed here about gaming. One was calling Sonia, which came to Dubai from UK. It was a whole week events, went to Saudi Arabia.

There was a pupil at the door over 10,000 people. So you can imagine the second one was called girl gamers, which is a group of individuals from Macau and Portugal, only girls playing games, but very hot with run out to the hotel where you lead the horse races made them again, another five thousand people in amazing traction. Why? Because people like games than the youngsters is the future. So I would like to maybe get back here to the Quinta and give her perspective since the other guys are more on the five. Play Nikita about the pr aspects to the

importance on how this helps Drive the industry to new heights, when we first got into game five, while we needed some advice from some 14, 15 year old boys. Mostly to teach us of what the hype was about. But then we realized it's not just this target market. The target market is much bigger than that. It was the best. Use case that I've seen so far in game 5 has been actually infinity, and what we learned from Maxie was a visit one day created like huge, mass adoption and very quickly. They got people addicted to the game

and it got them incentive eyes because they were, you would play and earn tokens, but then you're stuck because you're staking the tokens and then they've created this like, long term as long-term strategy where people are at, you know, really tied to the game for a long time. But more than that. They're giving people an opportunity to learn while having fun without the restrictions that typical Finance Industries have. Because now like with with game fight its gaming and defy. So you have like some people say gaming and finance. I think it's gaming

and defy because you're giving me an opportunity to people to play this game. You don't need any bank accounts. You don't need any, you know, third-party brokerage or anything. Like this is trade crypto peer-to-peer and your learning through this game and people are earning like, I would say, almost probably what the average salary here is in a month in the using this game and imagine how powerful that is for. Developing countries like the Philippines where we just cuz acting Trinity super popular in Philippines where people can have an opportunity to earn

tremendously. So from PR and marketing perspective. I think that if you, you have like a story like this PR is easy. And like, I always tell all my clients that like, if, if you think that we're not like we're doing a bad job. Maybe question, is your platform really going to let you know create Mass adoption. And so, when we get gamepai platforms like this, it's so easy to do the pr and marketing and traditional Publications are interested. Crypto. Publications are interested. We get them all over the Press just

because everyone can relate to this guy. I sympathize with us because when we have things like girls Gamers here in town, all the shapes wanted to be part of it. And you know, they got this basically free hotel and everything just to be part of the event, completed change, the rules of the game. So we have here is that year from Germany? I think, two countries in Europe are doing massive adoption for Krypton blockchain. What is Portugal? And I'm putting in just a little tip for Old Country? I was born in in 0, 0 tax for crypto. So very important. There's many conferences going on right now.

One of them was the web Summit where a lot of this technology has been presented to Lana. I mean few days. So I think Germany in Germany is a driving trip to adoption by allowing regulated entities to be barred. My banking system is participating with custody. So they hear your views from Germany to the Middle East. So in general in for anyone that has ever played computer games and maybe some of you grew up, playing Italian Nintendo PlayStation. It's something very exciting because we all know the

experience of wasting many, many hours, earning some kind of skin or sword. And then a week later you ask yourself like really, what did I do there? Is my life hours days weeks for some people even decades. And now all of a sudden you have the opportunity to monetize basically wasted Lifetime, right? So in from a macro expect perspective, this is very interesting because if we would just assume GDP at a hundred, all of a sudden you monetize waste of time and total GDP grows. So it's from an economic perspective.

And from an individual perspective, something very very excited like through to get to the ownership and you can like trade your skins on the secondary Market. That's the good side. So it's super exciting and it can be a trojan horse for blockchain in general because people love games, I think the game industry is bigger than the music and film industry combined. So it really has the potential to help blockchain with mass adoption on the one hand, but I think on the other hand, maybe it's my German perspective, but we need to Also take a blockchain

teams with a bit of humility and really realized it right now most of the games in game 5 like sorry, but they suck. They are really bad. It's really boring. I don't know if you have played some of them but they mostly like just some kind of card games. Not really a Triple Eight Games Hitler potential to grow at right now. I think we should do friendship between real Gamers and what they love about games, which is game first and maybe later crypto, second, and maybe game fires, which are there to earn money to fix the job. Right?

So I think this is an interesting example, I don't think really a real gamer would love to play a taxi for many hours. But of course in Southeast Asia, you can it's considered the job. What is primarily a job. And so yeah, it's it's If possible be really interesting to see how these two paths will cross will be really be able to make really interesting games with the cool in it. If I cited the amazing, I have a chance to visit. I think over 10 countries in Asia. What date was

Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, China? And so on, I think gaming is part of the Asian culture. So I think Rico can give us this inside perspective, like nobody else. It's so much part of the culture that they restrict you the amount of hours that you're allowed to play in certain countries because of the addiction Factor bang those days. Been a shut the TV and the parents do not in your own room because the restrictions sale Malaysia Kuala Lumpur and my partners and Sundays from Singapore. He's a real gay kissing playing everything all the

game since it was and it's 41 years old. So, you know, that goes back, a lot of games of those days. We play me 46, computers, and computers, and that one game out. So things are different now, obviously, the game psychology and the guinea pig has your mother has the ball with the Rope chains and Define. We are looking at law of Triple AAA game Publishers and during the space Love artist Lorde designers. A lot of nicknames, do space 3D saw that video games in different countries menu. AAA Publishers

are looking at expanding the Investments and investing into this industry that's going to be gained by an and the blockchain space, a crippled woman because of that kind of makes thank you that I love you. Same old games now and making money Xfinity as good as a Open Mansion Aaliyah on how some kids at a very young age. Can actually go on the living and play to learn and no longer need to work. A job and became a national game up. So a lot of kids, especially is jenzie. I looking at a different lifestyle different neat when they moved to

Next Level, when you go to use to you later with the program that has the study of your loss, whether to repeat a shemagh because the race, will you bring this up and around the weather in Sandy wise, just do certain actions and the Richmond and Bonnie, just might agree. It's also entertainment education, pleasure in in, in this process. So that's why I was looking at the Knicks, you know, next 5 to 10 years where this industry is going to have a huge 55. It makes things more interesting because Able to track where the money's

on the wallet to operate a wallet. The same problem. Whenever you were looking at with where the money, I owe you, no money laundering issues, which will not touch you today. But something about this whole thing, we started this whole use of decoy and the little one, the rest of your team in the gates of program, does the hackers, you know, the dark web but because of its history we're looking at, you know, the Young Generation Now repeating this with different crypto-currencies and the guinea pig a Shamu. So interesting that

the traffic is so awesome. You know, it's not like those days where you play very, very bad experience is so awesome. You're looking at 3D printer, royalties driven 60, GB Oculus shopping experience where they can do it in the hole in The Ledger time and they can't, you make money as a CEO. So that changes the whole global economy. Few years ago, when I was hiring, when I was working in China, as a see you, I was hiring and was trying to get hot to hire fresh graduates in China because they do other job then work in

office Malaysia main people that work in an office make more money doing that and have her Freedom. So I was asking a lot of our investors and Venture Capital funds. Like this is a trend that we are calling because the talin were in every single industry. If you can even hire jr. How are you going to have meet management stuff in your company in the future? When is the only boss everyone, you know, have their own wealth? And this is what we are observing in the new generation.

Your kids will know how to make money with some crazy. Swipe from the parents and they can return the money with good investment between your message through the parents, because they haven't learned how to be at a very young age. So, I think my mother is not just about entrepreneurship reached, but now I think it's reach kit for that. So I think she has some experience hear that he's learning from his kids. So villainous. I mean when your kids to play games the whole time but it was completely wrong.

Sex is super hot, was it but actually making the room is this still on a relative basis of what it was like 7168. I said this sex is got so much for that. The guy, I think it's just 1:25 a.m. To send the strength, you know, it is really there's like 12 to 16. Guys are going to come through, you know, and they're learning the strands in 30 minute plans, in fortnite in a completely different operating and you do with a matter of us. I just think you should shopportunity for additional Equity markets, as well as you a lot of the big gaming companies out there a list it

was but you know, this segment is like I like five six months 9 months out. There's a lot of the sector out most most of the day finds itself like game files. That's super exciting because they understand that he has a father Is the car washing or a wealthy and the shop. Now, United seems a lot better than I can retire on fortnite. By the time they're 18. Actually your brother very interesting keyword so far, we talked about gaming, d5000 Etc. But one important

key, where you mentioned it was the metaverse and I think I think it's something that game of five needs to also potentially look and not just metaverse. Sometimes we call it metaverse polyverse or Multiverse where you have mixture between reality and the gaming and the people that will be able to do that. I think will extend substantially the adoption Factor? Simply because today the computing power that you have on your mobile simply not enough yet to have a very high resolution at the verse. So

I would like to have maybe the opinion of some of the panelists here as well on how we move to this. I guess the Multiverse met the verse or mixed reality. And how this is also going to enhance the last week. We released some new VR release his along with tge Ventures that SoftBank invested, 93 million dollars in sandbox. And then we also saw a couple of weeks before that. Facebook has is, is putting forward 10 billion dollars for the development of their metaverse and one-third of their Workforce. Even change their name, which is like, it's

Facebook. Can I get massive option, then who will, you know, it's Facebook. So I mean, I don't think it's a question of if it's a question of when we will start going to the metaverse. I think. So, for those of you who don't know what I did speak earlier at 10 a.m. And I talked about the metaverse like an alternate universe through a VR set. Where you can buy property, you can drive whatever car you want, be whoever you want. It. It's it's really crazy when you think about it, but I guarantee that your children and get grandchildren will be sitting in the workplace. And

then, you know what? I feel like a Beach vacation. Let me just put my metal grass on, and they'll be sitting in a beach for 10 minutes and I'll pop back to work. We are moving, definitely moving in that direction. So I think we're still really early on but they're the biggest companies. Now, our employment, take them out of her. So we'll definitely be thing that soon that's a bit on that. I don't know who here is familiar with the simulation Theory but a couple of years ago and gave a really interesting panel a talk when he said that,

there was a 0.001% chance that we are not in a simulation at this moment and the way he argued was that, okay, you take, Our state of technology and you extrapolate that every certain growth rate. You can have a small growth rate on big growth rate, go hundred or one thousand years in the future and Humanity will be able to simulate what we see here. Just as realistic as we see, basically, I fully agree that fortunately or unfortunately. We are at the kind of beginning of a digital layer

which will likely merge with our day-to-day more and more and we might at some point because I really really sticky. Rico alternate realities. So that's the reason why we are here in Dubai. And with the reason why be self-centered enter the real estate business for parent. While we read the directions to play games all day and not getting enough rest and not getting healthy. And also to have the whole integration between the virtual and physical or are the kids, grab order food packets, you playing a game because of a drive

is in a game and this was in the screen, so it doesn't date and the food. The lost things are not being simple, being created in our current living environment. That's piracy of all training for the immigration physical infrastructure. So does garment and log. People been talking about spark City and Smart Home Smart. To manage to control us and to know what we're doing. And the data is not only ourselves is owned by someone else. Putting that itself is where we see

our industry looking for movement to actually Empower everyone in the room here to think about it. What should we do to protect our own data? How can we control our own data and whatsoever a man? Do you want our next Generation to live in? You know, if we are going to transfer to a new home product? So I think that's where we are. Looking at all, kinds of solutions and partner is as far as old gas in your own industry, come together in to work together as hell. So going forward movement to be

where we are looking at a few days ago, when I was working for is a balanced environment for the future generation and they can leave out happily and the world and you can leave all these things mean. This alarm police involvement altogether from Regulators. Found view from, our parents are away from the pack and the blues on the table to discuss, all these Solutions and problems around it so that we can make it right. Thank you. Yeah, I think you brought an important element is the element of security of the

metaverse and security of the gaming Virtual Worlds. I invite you to visit the website called XRS side. Org, which is the Venture that we started free of charge in the United States. California has created version to if a framework summation and then fill it any other extra word wisdom. I think it's right at the next 25 years in minutes is unbelievable. What's going on? When you know, one of the toughest guys in the world is named. Stop on the on the job and it tells you something, you know, and I think, you know, that the kids. Now it just getting trained everybody playing

Roblox full and I, you know, I mean this is like PhD and what the Manifest says. I see the van train these kids into I'm starting to see you soon as you up. As soon as he's out. I'm 60. My kids play instruments with this time. He's a bit sluggish. 60 is going to change the game on. These Medifast is United store in incredible company. Have a day that's will kids have to play the piano and the violin or whatever instrument they want. But imagine that thing and you not smoke line

problem, having a big baby grand piano. You can now play the piano in the Megabus. Hugo Boss. You want to bring your friends and you don't want to play the violin, want to play a piano and you can play Madison, you know, or you can play the album with your friends, right? Which then in turn creates United about a place to sort of that the kids can do. No other. People can stop United. So generating revenue is goes back to games. But if you look at like 4 tonight, you know, I think they had DJ marshmello with 15 million.

People tell me, I'm going to come set 30 kind of goes in a circle. So super excited about us. Okay, we're going to have a few final words, from everybody. I think our time is running out. So it was 30 seconds. Everybody from my perspective, things. That is look very bright, that mean we have exciting technology. We have exciting Markham to address as you know, you should go out there when I called billion sides market. So we have a billion people in Africa. We have a billion people. In general. We have keep billion Muslims. I think you should The calculations things look,

straight forward, the rest, when building in China as well. So Rico in Phillips. Yeah. So final words despite being really knew and, yeah, we do have some weird games out there. Almost, I've seen like, Pac-Man and they call it, the Empire. The doctors are like, take my money. But even then, I think that the industry is super-hot. We're definitely getting somewhere with this. I think if anything's crypto Mass adoption and it will be through gaming and games by, so I'm very optimistic about it. I would fully agree is super optimistic about its population

about it and very much looking forward to our game fire and gaming merch together. And especially, I love the fact that near Summit MLB owners of their own time and of the games and contribute, we're sitting about 20 to 30 in projects, laughing my ass off. If I inner peace and we see the potential of it, even though that too much. We just continue to play more games and do do Moltres that the volume go up and be morally, clean juice space. That listen to him and an investor

invested in later on. And if you can't see that, just by your Facebook says, I ain't going to. I'm going to, Let's combine to give me tradition with something a little bit more serious. We're trying to decarbonise the planet and why don't you email maybe game of 54 decarbonize the planet make all the kids addicted, remove some CO2, from our planet. Maybe this is for the next unicorn out there. So I give it back to our friend. You heard it here. First round of applause. Fascinating topic.

Amazing panel. Real done. Thank you so much. Everyone one for the flu. Grenada.
