Web 3.0 is the future of the internet, and it’s not just about new technology or faster connections. It’s a completely new paradigm, a decentralized network built on blockchain technology that promises to revolutionize how we interact online. Cuyler Pagano, the young and ambitious CEO of Abraxas DAO, is quickly emerging as one of the most innovative and forward-thinking minds in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Cuyler Pagano is not your average entrepreneur. He’s a visionary who’s always looking ahead, anticipating the next big thing. From successfully creating and selling two comic books to building a blockchain-based platform that aims to revolutionize the gaming and entertainment industry, Pagano has a unique perspective on the potential of blockchain technology and its ability to transform the internet as we know it.
At the heart of Pagano’s vision for the future is Web3 technology, which is set to redefine how we interact with the internet. Web3 technology promises to provide a more decentralized, secure, and transparent online ecosystem by leveraging the power of blockchain, NFTs, and cryptocurrency. For Pagano, this represents a paradigm shift in how we approach the internet and how we value and transact with digital assets.
Pagano’s passion for Web3 technology and its potential is reflected in his work with Abraxas DAO. The platform aims to create a more decentralized and democratic gaming and entertainment industry by providing actual ownership of assets and empowering creators and users to have a more direct say in how the industry operates. Abraxas DAO’s mission is to create a more equitable and transparent ecosystem that prioritizes the needs and interests of its users over profit.
“We founded the company with the intention of bringing Web3.0-based blockchain technology to artists and creators at an affordable rate, making it easy for the average user to bridge the gap between Web2.0 to Web3.0,” Pagano explains. “While custom developed solutions can be costly and time consuming to build, we offer a solution that’s been proven to work and is easily reproducible.”
Pagano’s journey has not been without its challenges. “With blockchain technology still in its early stages, we haven’t seen the adoption rates that we would like,” he explains. “We know great things take time, and we are continuing to build so that as user adoption increases and the average user starts to participate in Web3.0, we will have the technology ready. There is already a large user base for cryptocurrency and blockchain tech, and it’s our hope we will see a wider adoption of digital collectables and Web3.0 entertainment products in the near future.”
During a recent interview, Pagano shared his vision for Abraxas DAO and the future of Web3 technology. When asked about where he sees Abraxas in five years, Pagano expressed his desire for the platform to be a leader in Web3 entertainment. “We are starting with our own comics and games and will expand to provide services that will help other creators enter the space in the future,” he explained. Pagano sees the entertainment industry as a significant player in the Web3 space, with decentralization and true ownership of rights from a creator’s standpoint being key components. From a user’s perspective, there are many benefits, including verifiable authenticity and the ability to easily resell collectibles.
Pagano acknowledged that funding isn’t necessarily a struggle, but it’s something that the company is currently dealing with. With a limited budget, Abraxas has to carefully select which ideas get attention and development. To address this, Abraxas DAO is opening up its first round of funding to private investors in the near future, with the goal of raising $300,000 in capital. With more funding, the company can expand its product offerings more quickly and continue to innovate in the Web3 space.
Despite the challenges of launching a blockchain company during a market downturn, Pagano has continued to innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible with Web3 technology. He has successfully raised funds for Abraxas DAO and released several products, including the open beta of the Punkin Patch game on Android and iOS and two WordPress plugins for Web3Plugins.com, Token Gate, and Coin Gate.
Looking ahead, Pagano sees Abraxas DAO as a leader in the emerging GameFi industry, which blends gaming and finance with blockchain technology. He also hopes to see one of his comic books adapted into a movie or animated series. For Pagano, the future is full of endless possibilities, and he is determined to be at the forefront of the Web3 revolution.
