Quotes From Sebastien Borget

“The most important category for us is the creators. We put a big focus on that community and all the tools and products we provide to empower them.”

“Part of the beauty of web3 is it's really levelling up everyone and enabling new people to enter this industry and become a creator, even though they were not part of the previous Web 2 or gaming free-to-play revolution.”

“I think it varies across cultures. Some markets are more interested in the financialization aspect and what traditional ownership means in term of monetization, while others are really excited by the creative side and the ‘no code game maker.’”

“We're not creating a gaming platform, we're creating a virtual world where people are connecting around a new form of entertainment, a combination of social, culture and gaming.”

“The sandbox is a new form of entertainment. It's very social, people come to connect and make friends, to chat and to interact. You can encounter experiences of art, sport, fashion, music, entertainment, museums and culture.”

“It's a beautiful Melting Pot that reflects the beauty of the metaverse: a very inclusive world where people choose their identity.”

More Quotes From Sebastien Borget

“Avenged Sevenfold launched a Game Jam and made some of their music available for the fans to use within the experience. It was co-created with their Community.”

“What does it mean to be a fan today?”

“We’re seeing some great signs of progress this year. We increased our audience by 20% to 5 million users with a wallet. People spend 62 minutes on average in the Sandbox, that’s a 20% year on-year increase.”

“How do you allow user content, such as an avatar, to be used and connected across different applications, platforms or services?”

“By the end of this year we’ll be launching a new game maker that adds better performance, better graphics and a new multiplayer capability to drive more fun and more social features.”

“We’re opening publishing, so any of the land owners can open an experience without any prior validation. Two hundred and sixty experiences went live right away and we hope thousands of experiences will go live. More content to explore, more time to spend, more chances to engage or  monetize.”
