“I wake up excited every day because I get to see the world get better from a technology perspective, which is a form of evolution.”
J1mmy.eth’s belief that web3 is set to change the world is what gets him out of bed in the mornings. “I wake up excited every day because I get to see the world get better from a technology perspective, which is a form of evolution. I get to take part in that, and maybe you only see these opportunities once or twice in a lifetime.”
J1mmy.eth had an epiphany whilst hiking in the Appalachians in 2017, when he ‘found’ blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. His first exposure was with Kitties and Punks, and like many, he both made and lost some money. But he views any losses as money well spent because it brought him friendships and understands he wouldn’t otherwise have had. Finding his ‘people’ was important for j1mmy.eth, who took a while to find something that resonated. He still hangs out with his core of friends from across the world every day in the Metaverse.
J1mmy.eth defines life as ‘sometimes long. It’s very short, but very long.’ Of our journey through that life, he says: “Our journey is not defined, and those of us that are curious should seek answers in untraditional ways. One day you may find your path, and your path can be great.”
He believes that web3 can be a path to greatness. According to him, we haven’t even started to see the efficiencies that can be gained through the use of NFT technology and the real-world applications that it will have down the road.
J1mmy.eth hopes that somewhere down the road lies a bigger adoption of Avastars. “That’s the one I’m really waiting on that hasn’t really happened yet – for the community to really embrace Avastars,” he tells us.
He’ll know he’s onto a winner when people speak with their wallets: “The biggest signal you can give in the space is with your wallet, not through a tweet or any of those things.”
J1mmy.eth’s Avastars project is something that is extremely important to him as a legacy that will be there forever, long after he and everyone else is gone.
