Darcy Donavan, Producer, Actress, Artist, creator of stardawgs.com, founder Co-Owner of Income Island, CMO of E-Coin Finance and Author discusses the various opportunities in Web 3.0 and the metaverse for businesses and entertainment industry with Dinis Guarda in the latest episode of his YouTube Podcast Series. The podcast is powered by openbusinesscouncil, citiesabc, and fashionabc.
We are now living in the era of Web 3.0, a new version of the Internet that is focused on empowering users through decentralisation and increased efficiency. Web 3.0 is a term used to describe the evolution of the internet into a more interactive, connected, and data-driven environment. This third-generation internet technology has the potential to revolutionise businesses of all sizes and sectors. With the introduction of Web 3.0, businesses have been presented with a range of opportunities to capitalize on.
E-Coin Finance is a crypto-based project in Web 3.0 with a decentralised and deflationary BEP 20 token. It is an online payment platform through an integrated debit card. Darcy, CMO of E-Coin Finance, told Dinis that the utility of E-Coin lies in the ability to make easy, fast, and secure payments using ECOIN balance.
"I want to help build the position of E-Coins as a leading crypto coin around the world. You'll be able to use the debit card and the wallet. You'll be able to use it anywhere to buy anything", she said.
The increased level of data-driven decision-making and automation allows businesses to better understand the needs of their customers and develop solutions that are tailored to their needs. As the internet evolves, businesses are building effective community spaces that are engaging and interactive where they can harbour authentic relationships with all the stakeholders. These spaces are thriving places to interact and engage.
Darcy Donavan, an influencer with more than 7 million followers across different platforms, told Dinis:
"I'm highly engaged with my community on my social media spaces. I also have great utilities attached to some NFT projects. So, I'm not just giving digital assets but utilities, like getting a role in a movie. So, I'm cutting the red tape and giving people a chance that would never have had this opportunity."
Entertainment in the metaverse and Web 3.0
This new version of the internet has opened up a world of possibilities for businesses and filmmakers, allowing them to create, distribute, and monetise their work in ways never before imaginable.
The defining feature of Web 3.0 is its emphasis on decentralisation. This means that instead of relying on centralised services, like Netflix or Hulu, filmmakers can now create their own networks and platforms. For example, blockchain technology has enabled filmmakers to launch their own streaming services, allowing viewers to access their content directly and filmmakers to monetise their own content, without having to go through a third-party provider.
Based on this ideology, Darcy is currently heading an NFT project. She told Dinis:
"I'm trying to bring Hollywood and Web 3.0 together. This NFT project is tied to film and television Throughout my career, I've met directors and A-list actors, crew, and executives. I'm bringing them onboard with their skill sets and also giving jobs to people in Web 3.0."
Through the means of Dinis Guarda YouTube Channel, she also announced the private sale round of the project, which would be organised from Jan 11-15, 2023.
Recent advancements in metaverse technologies have made it close to reality. With increased immersiveness and interaction, the world is progressing towards endless possibilities that the metaverse holds for the entertainment industry.
The metaverse holds the potential to transform the way we consume and interact with media. It is an opportunity where users can actively participate and become part of the story where the user’s choices and actions have a direct impact on the outcome of the experience.
Speaking about Income Island, a hyper-immersive metaverse project that Darcy is associated with, she explained the level of immersion.
“Doing the movie theatres in the metaverse, and putting movies in it, and the viewers can come to the premieres from all across the world and you don't need your Oculus. It integrates Web 3.0 and Web 2.0 and the metaverse. Anybody with StarDog will be able to go into the metaverse. We are going to have distribution platforms. We have red carpet premieres in metaverse and the avatars will be able to drive up in the meta drives to those premieres.”
Concluding the interview on a positive note, Darcy said:
"When technology emerges, people do tend to get scared. We've just scratched the very surface of what is coming and how it can benefit us in so many ways. It's giving us the opportunities to cross boundaries. I would like to see companies grow together with time, working together worldwide for overall growth in our society. That's our goal, and we are making it happen.”
