Guibert Englebienne, co-founder of Globant, an Argentinian software development company, stated that all companies should be aware of what nascent technologies such as crypto, NFTs, and the metaverse are offering. Englebienne explained that these new technologies might disrupt the operations of existing businesses, and that some time might need to be invested to understand these effects.
Englebienne bases his opinion on the ample scope that these sectors have and how this can affect other businesses that are tangentially close to crypto, like tech. In an interview with local media, he stated:
Organizations in general, when they grow, crystallize in a business model that has been favorable to them and on which they have developed a habit and a custom, but the appearance of new technologies will generate disruption on your business. Devoting a part of your time to being able to understand this is essential.
On crypto, Englebienne has also a positive attitude. However, he believes that this new bear market might be positive for the sector. he declared:
Regarding the recent falls in the markets, I think this is healthy to some extent because it cleans up the landscape and separates those projects that have a solid value proposition versus those that are simply speculation.
Furthermore, he stated bitcoin is “good as a diversification strategy and if one believes in cryptocurrencies, being able to make a bet on it, but always in a reasonable way.”
The co-founder of Globant is also a believer that when it comes to NFTs and their possible uses, saying that these enable interesting business models, but that there must be interesting projects using NFTs that understand “the real potential behind the technology,” instead of just using it as part of the current euphoria.
