Piers Kicks: Earning Money in the Metaverse
Piers Kicks, venture partner at Delphi Digital, joins Raoul Pal, Real Vision CEO and co-founder, to discuss the metaverse, esports, and earning money in the digital world.
Kicks explains that, over time, more and more of people's lives are becoming digital—because of this, we see the development of the metaverse. Enabled by crypto, digitally native economies are quickly emerging, which provides opportunities for people anywhere in the world to earn money via playing; for example, this would include the play to earn business model found in Axie Infinity. Kicks explains that some of the problems that exist for monetization in the music industry also exist in the esports industry and that crypto can help address these issues with NFTs and tokenization.
