The web 3 environment is a new frontier in technology. The current web 2 environment is a sea of information with little direction and no order. Web 3 envisions a world where the internet is decentralized, where there are no intermediaries, and where the user can be in control of their data.
8IGH is a company that wants to help create this new world. They are dedicated to making this new internet more user friendly for everyone. Working on user friendly UI, they are preparing the foundation for mass adoption. An easy-to-use interface that makes it possible for people who don't know how to use crypto or blockchain to interact with it seamlessly for future projects is huge, although it is still a very small portion of the overall effort to mass adoption.
8IGH has been working on the ATL 8IGH DAO project since December of 2020. This project is focused on the development of a web 3 platform that will be used for mass adoption and to provide foresight for the future.
This project is still in its early stages, but it has already helped 8IGH gain more insight into what it may take to onboard people into web 3. The team has discovered that one major obstacle is convincing people that this new technology will be better than what they have now.

Blockchain was first presented with the presentation of Bitcoin. Bitcoin was a digital money, and from that point on, fantasies spread that blockchain and digital currencies are something very similar.
Blockchain is a decentralized record that keeps the records of exchanges, and these records can't be changed. In this way, when an exchange has been endorsed and remembered for a block, it becomes super durable. Presently it will constantly exist in the blockchain. What makes blockchain innovation different is that it is totally decentralized implies there is no focal power that possesses it or oversees it. It is for customers and has a place with them.
The information is saved money on blocks. Each block is comprised of a specific number of exchanges. At the point when a block is finished, the organization supports it, and it is added to the blockchain, making it unchangeable.
Digital money is comprised of two words-crypto and cash. While the significance of cash is evident that it is cash, crypto implies scrambled or written in codes. Thus, the significance of a digital currency is that a computerized resource has a worth like cash. It is made to cultivate simple trade, and that is where blockchain comes into the image. All the crypto exchanges that happen are recorded utilizing blockchain innovation.
The very first digital money was Bitcoin, which became inseparable from blockchain. From that point forward, a huge number of digital forms of money have entered the market.
Let’s be real, conversations about the metaverse are becoming inevitable.
Everywhere you turn, someone is talking about how much they’ve invested into cryptocurrency, Web 3.0 becoming the future, virtual interactions in the metaverse, and of course, buying and selling NFTs.
So while you’re sipping on your dry martini at the bar, let me tell you a little secret… I’m here to shake things up.
I know, I know, it’s a lot to take in, so before you order another drink, let me start from the beginning. I'm 8IGH, pronounced like the number eight, and I’m focused on curating rare sports NFTs that help secure generational wealth for my community.
I was first brought into the NFT space in 2021 by my good friends Jordan Tate and Treyous Jarrells. If you don’t know them yet, you will soon, they’re young visionaries doing amazing work in their respective fields.
Anyways, with their help, I’ll be leveraging my portfolio of assets and a roster of high networth individuals to help bridge the nationwide economical gap for marginalized populations, specifically in regards to access and knowledge of NFTs and cryptocurrency. So dope, right?
Well, it gets even better. Knowledge is power, which is why our one-of-a-kind financial literacy course is so important in accomplishing our mission. We want to grow and establish a community for marginalized populations that is filled with experiences, rewards and most importantly, opportunities to build generational wealth.
Don’t forget, 8IGH WILL be an industry leader in rare sports NFTs.
Let me go back to my friends for a second- I don’t want them to feel left out.
Jordan Tate, a Colorado State University graduate, creative entrepreneur and multimedia graphic designer, has completely submerged himself into the world of cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and blockchain based technology. Tate is Co-Founder and Chief Digital Officer of… well me (8IGH). So yeah, I guess that makes him my boss... But he’ll be overseeing and bringing to life all of our creative ideas - how cool right?!
My other boss, Co-Founder, Treyous Jarrells, a former Colorado State University athlete, who is currently redefining the cannabis and hemp landscape, has dived head first into the metaverse. His strong entrepreneurial skills and visionary instincts make him perfect for the Chief Visionary Officer position, where he’ll influence our direction and help keep us focused on our mission to bridge the economic gap within marginalized communities. Oh and not to spill too much tea, but he’s also a new dad to the cutest baby girl!
Oh yeah, I can’t forget the big guy! I’m so excited to share with you that Tim Patrick, wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, will be our Business Relations Officer. So he’s basically going to be tackling (no pun intended) the gap between players and the metaverse. Pretty cool, right?! To make things even better, Tim will have his own collection of NFTs, exclusively available on 8IGH. Let’s cheers to that!
Well, now that you’ve met my friends and I, why don’t you explore our site a bit? If you see something that interests you, reach out! I’m all about making new virtual friends.
I’ll be back with more fun stuff in the next few days. Logging off and indulging in some much needed self care.
