Online gaming is receiving a major upgrade as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are revolutionising the way players interact on traditional platforms and enabling the opportunity for off-script narratives to occur.
HTC Decentralised Chief Officer Phil Chen said NFTs were disrupting the traditional way of programming and how online games are built.
Aaron McDonald, chief executive of decentralised app marketplace Centrality, has been awarded an Edmund Hillary Fellowship (EHF) qualifying him for the New Zealand-based group’s third intake of Fellows.
Just 44 Fellows out of 510 applicants were accepted into the illustrious group consisting of high-impact entrepreneurs, investors and change-makers from across the globe.
Developed in the spirit and memory of Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to summit Mount Everest alongside Tenzing Norgay, the Edmund Hillary Fellowship is fully owned by the Hillary Institute of International Leadership.
At its core, it’s a supportive community for entrepreneurial leaders to realise their potential for global impact.
McDonald, a co-founder of Centrality which closed an $80 million initial coin offering earlier this year, said he was thrilled to be selected as a Fellow.“To be accepted as an Edmund Hillary Fellow is an honour. To join such an esteemed group whose creative endeavours are making a real difference in the world is humbling,” said McDonald.Click To Tweet
The EHF co-founder and CEO Yoseph Ayele said selecting the third group of Fellows was a highly competitive process.
“A record number of five hundred and ten individuals applied from sixty-seven countries. This was an extremely competitive pool of quality applicants,” said Ayele.
“There are now a total of one hundred and nine Fellows in the EHF community across our three cohorts and the critical mass that’s building is enabling the collective impact of Fellows.”
