Co-Founder & CTO of Enjin.io

Today’s guest is one of the biggest names in the blockchain gaming and NFT space, in fact, the entire metaverse and an increasingly influential voice in the wider world of decentralised finance. Witek Rodomski is CTO of the Enjin Network, a gaming community platform that has grown exponentially since its inception back in 2009.

With over 20 million users and 250,000 gaming communities worldwide it was no surprise when in 2017, Enjin made the move into blockchain and cryptocurrency by launching Enjin Coin (ENJ), an ERC-20 cryptocurrency aimed at improving the games market through the implementation of blockchain technology.

In the last 12 months during which time we’ve seen an explosion in NFTs, Witek and his highly skilled team at Enjin have gone one step further by building Efinity, a next-generation blockchain on Polkadot. Their vision is clear, to give mainstream gamers and developers simple and accessible tools to build their own part of the decentralised metaverse. But, it is a long road and requires a huge commitment.

I’m really looking forward to taking a deep dive into Witek’s life to learn how he first discovered cryptocurrency and most significantly his early musings on smart contracts and the blockchain and why he believes it represents the most important technology in the world.

Witek is a sharp and intelligent personality who has dedicated as much time to developing and building blockchain products as he has to contemplating their impact and importance. He is forward-thinking and considerate and believes everyone should have control of their digital identity while major companies like Enjin should take due responsibility in ensuring such powerful technology has a positive impact on humanity.

As he himself so eloquently puts it,

“This new digital metaverse will allow for hugely increased individual expression and control, but it also has the potential to corrupt the mind and the human experience. Let’s build it responsibly and thoughtfully together.”

After all, it is through working together that humanity has scaled great heights and achieved its most groundbreaking feats. Sharing knowledge is crucial because the rate at which this innovation is taking place will likely see many left behind.

Here at London Real, knowledge sharing is at the very heart of what we do. It is why I’m more excited than ever about the future, and why I want to help as many of you as possible to make sure you don’t miss out on what I like to call The Greatest Dislocation of Wealth in Human History.

I see an incredible new reality that will transform the lives of every single person on Earth. I see a future where people live better, healthier, more fulfilled lives because of the technology that we are about to build. Imagine if every single one of the 8 Billion people on earth were given their financial freedom…how much could we achieve?

It’s why I have created the DeFi Academy, where hundreds of students are learning how to profit from this disruptive technology and ever-increasing infrastructure. It’s why my team and I are going “ALL IN” and plan on dedicating the next 10 years to teaching, understanding, broadcasting, educating, investing in, profiting from and TRANSFORMING this exciting new marketplace.

Finally, it’s also why I invest so much time bringing the most significant players and important voices in the field to share their ideas and knowledge with all of you. Over the last few months, we have spoken to a number of Bitcoin enthusiasts and DeFi experts like Michael Saylor, the earliest adopters such as Roger Ver, deep thinkers like Robert Breedlove and Jeff Booth.

Witek understands only too well the value of the technological shift that is taking place right now, but, more importantly, how positive this could be for the global population if we are inclusive and responsible. Witek has made clear the roadmap he foresees in the coming months and years: if 2021 was signposted by DeFi and NFTs then 2022 will very much be the year of the metaverse and blockchain gaming.
