Greg Gopman’s Vision for the Multi-Chain Future Is Massive

Published

on

The blockchain space is now bigger than ever and it seems a day doesn’t go by without a new protocol or platform being created. However, with so many blockchain networks to choose from, developers must face an extremely hard decision pretty early in the design process: “Which blockchain network(s) will our new project run on?

While this used to be a pretty straightforward decision in the days when Ethereum dominated the blockchain space, times have changed. The increase in popularity of alternative networks like Binance Smart Chain, Solana, Polygon, Harmony, Avalanche, and many more changed this reality.

Now, with the blockchain space fragmented into multiple smaller ecosystems, new projects are emerging with the aim to facilitate the transfer of data and assets between these networks. These efforts have gained momentum as more developers and companies pour resources into the development of web3, with some tech evangelists leading the charge. One of them is Greg Gopman.

Ever since leaving Twitter, Greg started a process of self and professional discovery that finished with him becoming one of the leading minds in the blockchain ecosystem. Having co-founded Akash Network back in 2017, he would eventually become the Head of Product for Ethernity chain in 2021. Now, he is helping crypto companies by providing marketing, business development, and community-oriented solutions that help them get off the ground.

Greg offers these solutions via Mewn, the crypto ecosystem development agency he founded back in 2021. His agency has established partnerships with popular projects like Kadena, Star Atlas, Ethereum, Siren, Ethernity Chain, and many more. Greg believes that by helping young and high-quality projects develop, the entirety of the blockchain ecosystem will get closer to maturity and mass adoption.

His work in the crypto, web3, and metaverse spaces recently led to Greg being appointed as Chief Marketing & Business Development Officer (CMBDO) for Ankr, one of the biggest projects working on the development of web3. At Ankr, Greg met a project that shares his vision of what the blockchain ecosystem can be: An ecosystem of interconnected blockchain networks that brings power back to users without making development harder for programmers.

While Ankr already supports over 50 proof-of-stake blockchain networks, Greg’s expertise will prove invaluable when it comes to providing developers with new means to make web3 a reality. Just like when he founded A Better San Francisco, Greg is trying to prove that change is the result of many people working together towards a goal.

The blockchain ecosystem has been plagued by headlines that include expressions like “Ethereum killer”, “Is X Better Than Y”, “Founder of X Believes That Y is Dying”, and many more. However, the web3 industry won’t be defined by any one project or any one ecosystem, a vision which Greg understands well.

The question is not if a multichain ecosystem is coming but how soon it will be here. With some luck and the work of visionaries like Greg, this question could be a thing of the past pretty soon.
