Blockchained India continues to unite the greatest minds in the Web3 space, and this time through their Back the Buidlers unconference.
On December 3, Back the Buidlers welcomed a global community of builders, investors, and supporters at Marriott, Bangalore. The unconference was aimed at assisting builders with the best strategies to make it right in the bear market.
Organizer and Quick Glimpse
Back the Buidlers was hosted by Blockchained India and OG Club, together with Metapolis, the world’s first Metaverse-as-a-service platform, and CoinDCX, India’s largest crypto exchange.
It was supported by Drife, Token Amigo, Polkadex, GoSats, Riva Metaverse, My Own Internet, and Scrappy Squirrels.
The event was filled with much-needed and important discussions, networking sessions, and of course a gala dinner and music by the poolside.
It marked the presence of key players from the industry who interacted with builders and guided, mentored, and supported them to thrive in the bear market.
“It lights me up to see the ecosystem has come so far without any support from the government or big institutions. Speaks a lot to the thought that nobody can stop an idea whose time has come. Together, the ecosystem has made so much happen and I see the future to be even brighter” – Akshay Aggarwal, Draper Dragon
The unconference continues gaining popularity among top Web3 professionals and enthusiasts because of its exceptional niche networking.
The stage opened with a keynote address by Mohan Kuldeep Ponnada, Co-founder and CEO of Metapolis, who shared his vision of the metaverse, real myths, and giant opportunities. He added –
“Back the Buidlers unconference has been an amazing platform for us to engage with the right stakeholders to bring the Metaverse vision to the next generation of change-makers and other ecosystem partners”
This was followed by an excellent panel on “Investing strategies in the bear market.” The panel included investors like Rohit Jain from CoinDCX Ventures, Akshay Aggarwal from Draper Dragon, Aditya Saraf from Spartan, and Ankur Choudhary from Woodstock Fund. It was moderated by Sameer Malik from Token Amigo.
With the changing market sentiments, the panel discussed various strategies and the KPIs (key performance indicators) that investors are focussing on.
Yet another panel excited the audience with a fantastic topic– “Survival of the fittest: How to build strong companies in the bear market.” It was moderated by Akshay Aggarwal from Draper Dragon, with Mohan Kuldeep Ponnada from Metapolis, Gautham J. from Polkadex, Firdosh Sheikh from Drife, and Sameep Singhania from QuickSwap as speakers.
The panel highlighted the need to not just build but “build a product that solves real user problems.” They also advised the audience to be choosy when launching a token and only launch it with a fantastic utility to it.
This was followed by the final session on “Myths and realities of building in the bear market” with Anantha R. Krishnan from MOI Protocol, Jagdish Pandya from Riva Metaverse, and Roshan from GoSats. The panel was moderated by Subhendu from OG Club. The experts shared the right approach to building for the new builders, which includes figuring out what the problem is and why Web3 is the key to solving this problem and then start building.
The unconference concluded with a high-class networking event at the Marriott poolside.
“Blockchained India did a fantastic job of getting together a relevant and highly curated group of people and facilitated meaningful conversations through both structured panels and informal interactions.” – Rohit Jain, CoinDCX Ventures
