Max: Hello, tell our readers a little bit about yourself.
Victor: Hi, my name is Victor. I have been working for more than 10 years in the sphere of business project evaluation and financing in the banking and consulting companies in some CIS countries.
Max: What brought you into the world of cryptocurrencies? What projects have you already participated in? What cryptocurrencies do you invest in?
Victor: In 2013 Taras (CEO of Octopus Ccrypto Capital) introduced me to cryptocurrency and offered to invest into Bitcoin for $180 each. At that time, I was working in a consulting project supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development with one of the Russian banks to automate financial and economic analysis of business clients, so I could not study the issue in detail. Plus, my experience in banking sector and classic approach to risk management did not allow me to invest in such a risky and incomprehensible to me project. I refused and forgot about BTC until December 2018. The events of this period are known to all and I am sure, like many of you, I started to study and follow the development of the cryptocurrency market in detail, but I refused to invest. At the end of 2020, the NFTs token market began to gain momentum very rapidly and I couldn’t avoid this event because I have had a taste for collecting coins, banknotes, gum wrappers, stickers and cards since my childhood. In January I invested in the Octopus F1 pool, in February in the Octopus Street Fighter project on the WAX blockchain, which has now transformed into a full Octopus WAX pool, of which I am the manager. The growth of trading volume and market capitalization of NFTs tokens without unnecessary advertising speaks of the investment attractiveness of this direction.
Max: How did you get acquainted with WAX? Why did you choose this market?
Victor: I became acquainted with WAX almost immediately as soon as I started studying the market of NFTs tokens and I fully agree that WAX is the King of NFTs. It is a safe and convenient way to create, buy, sell and exchange virtual objects (NFTs) to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Max: What are your pool plans for the near future?
Victor: Octopus WAX is a pool that invests in Wax blockchain projects. The main focus of the pool is Collectibles and MMO Games (massively multiplayer online games). The pool’s strategy includes both medium- and long-term investment as well as short-term trading.
Max: Many believe that NFT will grow in popularity strongly this year. Do you agree with this opinion? Why should you invest in this particular sector of the cryptocurrency industry now?
Victor: Absolutely, with 2021 being the year of NFTs, this market segment is rapidly developing, the trading volume in February 2021 is already comparable with the trading volume of the whole 2020 and the forecasted growth of NFT market capitalization in 2021 is more than 300%. Octopus Ccrypto Capital team is sure that this year there will be many interesting, mature and structured projects and invites investors to join our Octopus WAX pool!
Max: Thank you for your replies!
