Special Edition: Insiders’ perspectives on Web3's future
With our mainnet launch around the corner, the Cudos team took a breather to catch up for a special edition of CudosCast. In this episode, we have our team members - David Pugh-Jones, CMO; Kaitlin Argeaux, Events Manager; Nuno Pereira, VP of Partnerships and Pete Hill, VP of Corporate Development. The discussion was moderated by Dominique Cottrell, Head of Production at Cudos. The Cudos team is excited about what’s unfolding in the blockchain space with the heightened level of innovation. They discuss the new pool of developers who will help build the infrastructure for Web3 and look at how our decentralised cloud computing platform, Cudo Compute, can empower the users to earn passive income in a multi-billion dollar industry. The panelists discuss the possibilities of the Cudos network to power non-blockchain cases like artificial intelligence and deep learning, video rendering for films and beyond. It was a pleasure to have our team together in one place, sharing their thoughts on the Web3 and blockchain space as a whole. If you’re looking to stay up to date with the latest developments at Cudos, it’s not to be missed!

Monetising the Metaverse
Monetising the Metaverse
🚀 On today’s CudosCast, our host Pete Hill, chats with two guests from the metaverse space - Josh Jones, Co-founder and CEO, Cornucopias and Robert Greig, CEO, Cornucopias.  For those of you who don’t know, Cornucopias ‘The Island’ is a massive Play-To-Earn, Build-To-Earn, blockchain-based game, where players can be rewarded with and/or own land, properties and other NFT based assets with real-world value all by playing games in a fun and safe metaverse 🎮   In this episode, Josh and Robert discuss how their blockchain-based game bridges multiple worlds by bringing commerce in the games and real-world business applications with the metaverse side.  The duo touch upon emerging trends like 3D metaverse, gamification of the metaverse, incentivising gamers, and more. They hope that the metaverses of the future are decentralised, self-evolving, growing worlds that are interconnected.    As Play-To-Earn platforms like Cornucopias evolve, there is a need for a huge amount of digital infrastructure to run these metaverses and to render NFTs with high-quality graphics. As part of their partnership with Cudos, Cornucopias can access future scalable computing power for running games on their platform🤝🏻  Additionally, these metaverses will need distributed network with low latency, a gap that Cudos can fill with our decentralised cloud computing network🌐    🤝Cudos partners with play-to-earn platform Cornucopias on dynamic NFTs  🎮 https://www.cudos.org/blog/cudos-partners-with-play-to-earn-platform-cornucopias-on-dynamic-nfts/   🌌Why does the metaverse strengthen the case for a decentralised internet? 🕸️ https://www.cudos.org/blog/decentralised-cloud-computing-can-help-push-back-the-tide-of-e-waste/  Show Notes:     0:00 - Intro 2:52 - Who are ​​Cornucopias  6:26 - How does a gaming metaverse work?  11:34 - Development update  19:15 - User-generated content   20:42 - Main infrastructure of ​​Cornucopias  29:10 - Stats on running the metaverse  30:15 - How powerful does your device need to be to play?  32:55 - Tingo Partnership 36:21 -  What’s next for ​​Cornucopias  39:26 - Closing    🔗 Show Links🔗   ✔️ Cudo website: https://www.cudoventures.com/  ✔️ Cudo Compute website: https://www.cudocompute.com/  ✔️ Twitter: https://twitter.com/cudoventures?lang=en  ✔️ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cudoscast/  ✔️ Discord: https://discord.gg/cudos  ✔️Telegram: https://t.me/cudostelegram  #playtoearn #blockchain #cryptocurrency #decentralisation #cloudcomputing #cudos #earncudos # #cloud #stakecudos #crypto #metaverse #compute #buildtoearn #learntoearn #cryptogames #nftgame #nftgaming
