#metaverse #nft #playtoearn #sandbox #cryptosavvy



In October last year, finance veteran Evan Auyang joined Animoca Brands as its Group President. Headquartered in Hong Kong, Animoca Brands is best known as the company behind some of the most popular blockchain games such as The Sandbox, Crazy Defense Heroes and REVV Racing, and a prominent investor in the space. Since joining Animoca, Evan has been the major driver behind its fundraising and investment efforts.
In this episode, Evan speaks about the contributions and impact to society Animoca hopes to make, and the importance of community-building in the crypto world. As a senior figure in arguably the biggest blockchain gaming company, Evan also shares how the play-to-earn (P2E) gaming phenomenon is creating new employment opportunities, and the power of user-generated content in the metaverse.


Prior to Animoca, Mr. Auyang was the Managing Director and Head of technology platform GLG International, and before that Deputy Managing Director of Kowloon Motor Bus (KMB). He currently also serves on the Board of the Urban Renewal Authority, Sun Hung Kai & Co., and Asia Financial Holdings Limited as independent non-executive director. He is an advisor for Our Hong Kong Foundation and member of the Advisory Committee on Corruption of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (“ICAC”).
