Popular Talks by Edgar Perez

Is Web3 the Beginning of a New Internet or a Stroke of Marketing Genius?

Web3 promises a better internet built on the blockchain, the distributed ledger systems that form the basis of cryptocurrencies. Backers promise it will cut out traditional middlemen, letting users transact directly and have a greater stake in the applications they use. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, for example, make their money through advertising; yet, they share zero of it. Users are supposed to be happy with likes! If the sirens’ songs are to be believed, Web3 will bring more power into the hands of end users. Some people have different views though. Is Web3 just really a land grab underway by already powerful people? Is it a dystopian vision of a pay-to-play internet? Is Web3 ultimately a mere rebranding of crypto with the aim of convincing people that blockchains are the natural next phase of computing? Mr. Perez will inspire you as he cuts to the Web3 chase.

Welcome to the Metaverse: The Next Evolution of the Internet

The Metaverse is where our digital and physical lives will converge. It will include a virtual world interoperating with the physical world where we live, and generate a robust economy that spans entertainment, commerce, education and work, while transforming long-standing industries such as finance, retail, healthcare fitness, and more. Today, every major company is staking a claim on the Metaverse, from social media giants Meta (formerly Facebook) and Snap to gaming powerhouses Tencent, Microsoft and Epic Games, to hardware providers Nvidia and TSMC. Embrace the possibilities the Metaverse will bring to your organization during this fascinating session with Mr. Edgar Perez.
