BUIDL with FIO Protocol at ETHDenver 2021
Curious about BUIDLing at ETHDenver & ColoradoJam 2021 with FIO Protocol but wanting more details on their project? Get the scoop from their recent interview with ETHDenver.
How Do You Encourage BUIDLers to Get Involved?
“As an industry, what are we all doing as individual developers, as team members working for a company, as we’re involved in this industry? What are we doing to help this industry prepare itself for mass adoption? Because I think it’s just around the corner where you’ve got the PayPals and the Venmo, the large banks, you’ve got central bank, digital currencies, you’ve got governments, you’ve got major, major billion dollar corporations, they’re now very seriously looking at blockchain and cryptocurrency, and as an industry as in a sense a kind of a ragtag group of people that got together and you know, somebody published a white paper and people started building on top of it. What are we doing to prepare ourselves to support that level of inflow? How are we going to make crypto easier? How are we going to make it more scalable? How are we going to make it so that anybody can participate in what we’ve all been enjoying for a while? And how are we going to do that in terms of competing with centralized service providers?
My concern is that we’re going to have a situation where we have all this cool stuff that we’re super excited about. And then someone comes in and says, ‘Well, hey, I can do the same thing. But you know, it’s behind my walled garden. It’s just my little centrally controlled thing.’ And then everyone says, ‘Well, yeah, that’s easier. And you know, maybe the fees are lower. So I’ll just go over there.’ And then they just sacrifice everything that we’ve worked so hard to build, as far as self sovereignty, decentralized, you know, value that you control as an individual. So I would just encourage anyone seeing this, ask yourself, ‘What are you doing?’ How are you helping your company and your colleagues move forward to improve the industry? And that’s what we’re trying to do with FIO Protocol. We’re trying to improve the industry. We’re trying to make it easier for everybody. And I hope you’ll join us.”
What’s Up with the Pizza?!
“I’ve been in space for like eight years. And it’s like, I can’t just go and get a pizza from any other place and try to pay with Ethereum or Bitcoin or whatever. They’d just be like, what is that fake internet money? And I’m like, ‘I’d like to get pizza! And I’m like, why can’t I get a pizza?’ Why can’t we use this internet money that I’ve been so excited about for eight years, and I think we’re finally going to be able to, I really believe that we’re getting those doublings. We’re at the 1%. We’re at the 2%. And we look at 2021 and look at everything going on in space. I think we’re at a point where if we can make crypto easier to use, we now have the legitimacy of the financial industry of the government. The banks have so many other entities that have previously been saying, ‘No, it’s dangerous, don’t touch it.’ So it’s, you know, it’s unreliable and all these things. They’re now realizing they can’t find it. They can’t stop it. It’s going to happen. So we’re giving away pizza in GamerJibe at ETHDenver this year! Come find us! We’d love to meet you and connect with you. You can do so on our Discord. Follow us on Twitter or Telegram. We’d love to chat with you more.”
