If you want to follow the innovations happening in the blockchain and NFT space then you need Manuela in your network. Manuela Seve is co-founder and CEO of Alpha’a & alphaa.io through which she is changing the way we think of asset ownership by connecting the physical and digital realms via blockchain certification, licensing, and dropshipping. She has been in the tech and art sector for the past 8 years successfully raising funds from industry leaders such as: Metaprop vc, EOS VC, Chingona Ventures, and Gaingels among others funds. With a background in finance, Manuela worked as an equity analyst at GáveaInvestments, one of Brazil’s most reputable investment management firms. Alphaa.io gives brands verified proof of who their biggest fans are and provides special access to anything online or offline. Some great intelligence and insights shared with us: - How Alphaa.io is using blockchain for authenticity, resale tracking, and community building for sports teams, luxury brands, and companies. - How this technology allows for ongoing royalty tracking on the resale of products, memorabilia, autographs, and more leading to residual revenue, community tracking, and more. For example, 80% of athletes go bankrupt 18 months after they leave the courts but by putting a resale royalty for articles that they create during their careers they can continue to earn income. - How businesses such as Starbucks are using NFT loyalty programs, which is basically just the evolution of the punch card but on a much more massive scale that can also utilize geofencing and provide loyalty rewards in an entirely new way. These digital wallets are the way of the future. - Other unique aspects of NFTs allow for people to purchase NFTs as a pre-order on products which becomes production on demand and can significantly zero waste. - How the rise of the backend revolution and how it will upset power dynamics and what this could mean in terms of government organizations is massive.
