Interview with Phil Dhingra, Founder of Landemic

Explain to us what exactly are the tiles that the users are buying and what they can do with them? What is the customer experience of your business?The top tiles that are being traded are landmarks and iconic pieces of real estate. It is super fun to own the Empire State Building, Lady Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, or our top traded asset, Petronas Towers. Customers get to say “I bought Yankee stadium, or my hometown, or Buckingham Palace” and this sense of ownership makes the game truly unique.What opportunities and challenges do you see for dapps that leverage digital collectibles, like CryptoKitties?We see that the market for ephemeral digital assets has already approached the 100 billion dollar range, with Fortnite alone making more than a billion from selling in-game items. It stands to reason that a market for permanent digital assets should become a substantial fraction of that.The barrier to entry for dapps, and for blockchain in general, has always been usability, and it’s not something that will get solved overnight. The innovations that companies like Dapper Labs (creator of CryptoKitties) and Landemic are introducing in 2019 are different than what startups were introducing in 2018. I’m sure in 2020 we’ll see significant improvements in usability across the board. The plan is simple — hide the cables, focus on the customers.What are the top priorities for the company right now and what can we expect to see in the near future?Now that we have a budding group of professional players on Landemic, we are going to make it easier for them to buy and sell tiles at volume. We will reduce friction anywhere we see it, until it’s as easy to buy tiles on Landemic as it is to color pixels in Microsoft Paint.What do you think of the latest crypto bull run and what can we expect next year?I think next year, we can expect to see continued focus on transaction speeds and governance. Also, we are super excited to add some new features to Landemic that continue to merge the virtual with the real world.Altcoin Magazine with Phil Dhingra, Founder of Landemic was originally published in ALTCOIN MAGAZINE on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
