Telum News Watch: “Cutting the Fat Off” the Metaverse Hype

Sam Reynolds covers the Asian market of blockchain, digital currencies, new tech, NFTs and metaverse from Taiwan. He recently caught up with Telum Media and shared some of his insights towards the industry, as well as themes he is interested in covering.

Some highlights:
  • Sam covers the hype cycles of technology. He wants to see through the noise and find the real value of the different NFT products and metaverse projects. 
  • He is constantly on the lookout for analysts and experts who know the data and can provide colour to what’s happening in the space. He wants to pin down players who can last through cycles, with the value that can be realised after “cutting the fat off”.
  • He sees the abundance of talent as a unique feature of Taiwan’s technology sector, with a lot of coders and under-valued professionals in a localised business environment.
