Evelyn, what are some of your personal visions for the entire Web3 space? Is there anything in this new world that we can use your original instinct to help create a more just society?
Web3 is absolutely in line with what drove me to my studies in the first place. Blockchain ecosystems as I said, are microeconomies with internal impacts and international impacts. They are bridging the gaps in the world and enabling people from disparate communities, with different cultural sentiments, different access to capital, even speaking different languages, to interact in the same ecosystem, without being confined by their borders or their economies that are governed by their countries.
Beyond the blockchain aspect of things, Web3 in and of itself, is a force of democratization. We think about changing the script, flipping it, not to where brands telling consumers what they want, but consumers are directly telling brands what they want, what they care about and guiding the evolution of society for themselves is something that can only be enabled by Web3, by the ownership of data, and by the direct involvement, the direct point of contact with the companies that have been running our world, our cultural developments, and everything, for so long.
Um, this reduction in brand hegemony on culture and value is something that’s not going to change an individual country or continent, but it’s going to change the world, and allow us to see cultures and see values for what they are and find points of mutual interest and mutual value. My hope is that, through Web3, cultures that, for whatever reason, don’t gel together, are finally going to see that we’re all working together and all thinking about the same things.
Evelyn Hytopoulos, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Web3 Pro, thank you so much for talking with us.
