The Globant co-founder takes new technologies seriously
Crypto and its derivatives are starting to indirectly affect many industries, including the tech sector, and many companies are concerned about the effects this could have. Guibert Englebienne, one of the co-founders of Argentinian tech unicorn Globant, explained that this effect and the new technology emerging from the merger of crypto, NFTs and the metaverse sector should not be ignored.
Englebienne bases his opinion on the broad reach of these sectors and how this can affect other businesses that are tangentially close to crypto, such as technology. In an interview with local media, he said:
Organizations in general, when they grow, crystallize in a business model that has been favorable to them and on which they have developed a habit and a custom, but the appearance of new technologies will generate disruptions on your business. Devoting part of your time to being able to understand this is essential.
Fan of NFT, Crypto and Metaverse
Englebienne, as co-founder of Globant, is a fan of these new technologies, including metaverse, NFTs and crypto. About the Metaverse, he thinks that while the technology is legit, there’s still too much noise surrounding it. The air needs to be cleared to understand the true uses and potential of this new technology, he said.
On crypto, Englebienne also has a positive attitude. However, he believes that this new bear market could be positive for the sector. he stated :
In terms of recent market falls, I think that’s healthy to a certain extent, as it cleans the landscape and separates projects that have a strong value proposition from those that are just speculation.
Furthermore, he stated that bitcoin is “good as a diversification strategy and if you believe in cryptocurrencies, being able to bet on it, but still in a reasonable way.”
The Globant co-founder also believes that when it comes to NFTs and their possible uses, he says these enable some interesting business models, but there must be interesting projects using NFTs that include “ the true potential behind the technology,” instead. to just use it as part of the current euphoria.
