AI, Blockchain, and Gaming: A Conversation with Animoca Brands’ CEO

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a much discussed subject in public discourse, both within and outside of the rapidly growing tech sector, following the rise in popularity of OpenAI’s chatbot ChatGPT.

At the Talk 2023 Proof blockchain and Web3 conference in Paris, Cointelegraph had a conversation with Robbie Yung, CEO of Animoca Brands, to discuss the link between AI, blockchain, and gaming.

Yung informed Cointelegraph that Animoca has had a strong connection with AI for an extended period, both by creating AI companies and using it in game creation. He commented that for art teams, generative AI drastically alters the process of productivity and development.

Twitter has deactivated an AI bot associated with memecoin following Elon Musk’s accusation that it was a fraudulent cryptocurrency.

Regulations on the Gaming and Metaverse Industries: An Interview with Animoca Brands’ CEO

When queried about the effects of regulations on the gaming and metaverse businesses that employ new technologies such as AI, blockchain and digital currencies, he declared that they accept regulations for the purpose of clarity.

He stated that when investors have a better grasp of the regulations, they are more inclined to invest as opposed to doing so in a sector with a lot of doubt.

He remarked, “It’s a chain reaction – we become hesitant to invest, and our shareholders become hesitant to invest in us and so on. This isn’t beneficial for markets.”
