On a boring Saturday night, I ended up entering a strange multiverse run by apes. This multiverse reminded me of the Planet of the Apes.
The apes were very wise and wealthy. They made their wealth through their email marketing automation business which they sold to Intuit. They also had a survey software venture, but they got out of that business. Without any business to run, they got very bored.
To relieve the boredom, they entered into strange multiverses themselves. Interestingly, whenever they returned from these multiverses, they would bring back some serum, and 3 pieces of advice that continued to grow their wisdom and wealth.
The apes were very hospitable, and they invited me to their Yacht Club where we sat around in a circle, eating great food and sharing knowledge and wisdom. We had banana cake, accompanied by banana bread for dessert and a delicious banana shake.
The apes were looking for ideas to start a new business. I gave each of their leaders a copy of the book I co-authored and launched this year, The Exponential Era, hoping to be of help. The apes were very interested in the book and asked me a lot of questions. I told them how technologies were converging at unprecedented speeds, creating new ecosystems and disrupting old business models.
I started telling them about different exponential technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Biotech, etc. But when I told them about Blockchain, they really went wild. They started jumping around, beating their chests, and throwing bananas peels up in the air in a wild frenzy. They knew that Blockchain was going to be truly transformative and put them on the map in ways that no one could ever imagine.
The apes then started takings selfies, and before you know it, they had figured out how to monetize their selfies thought NFTs, using Blockchain. Suddenly, the image of these apes started appearing all over the internet and their NFTs started selling for millions of dollars in one of the world’s finest art auctions, making them even wealthier. To celebrate their accomplishment, they consumed the serum they had brought from the other multiverses, and started mutating. This resulted in more selfies of their mutant forms, more NFTs, and more wealth.
The apes were so appreciative of what I had told them about Blockchain, that they gave me 3 pieces of advice, as well as a special serum that they said I should bring back with me from the Multiverse of the Apes. Here was their advice:
1. Launch a new conference and share with the rest of the world the power of converging exponential technologies (especially Blockchain).
2. Launch a new Blockchain platform.
3. Take the special serum they gave me and use it to create a unique NFT.
Following the wisdom of the apes, I am pleased to announce:
1. The launch of CONTEX, the Converging Technologies Conference.
2. The launch of evenTokens, a Blockchain platform for events.
3. The drop of the Premier NFT Celebrating the Launch of a Conference created with the special serum brought back from the Multiverse of the Apes. This Premier NFT will be the first of its kind and the first NFT to be dropped at the evenTokens marketplace on September 30th. Stay tuned … you won’t want to miss it.
P.S.: This little parody is just a fun, light-hearted way to embrace internet culture to discuss recent events and to make a serious triad announcement (no monkey business here). But it is also a way to acknowledge the crazy new world we are living in, where avatars of apes are selling for millions of dollars. If you liked it, please share it with your monkey friends.
