Guided by its mission to provide Filipinos with logical, factual and insightful Web3 education, Filipino-led edutech firm Bitskwela is turning to Twitter Space to host the debate titled “The Limits of DYOR: A Debate on Web3 Influencers and Promotions.”
The one-hour debate will begin at 7 p.m. on June 9.
Among those who will present views on the dynamics between influencers and the “Do Your Own Research” or DYOR mantra in the Web3 realm are YGG country manager Luis Buenaventura, Bitcoin firm Pouch.ph CEO Ethan Rose, CNN “The Future w/ Jared, Kate, and Dan” co-host Jared Dillinger, Suzuverse PH and web3 games influencer Em “Kaisaya” Dangla, Web3 content creator MJ Aguilar and Favx Capital and Cryptoverse Academy CEO Marvin Favis.
“As Web3 revolutionizes sectors with its focus on decentralization, privacy, and user control, influencers are becoming pivotal voices that offer insights into its myriad applications. Meanwhile, the DYOR principle encourages independent research before making decisions in the digital space,” said JC Macalintal, chief marketing officer of Bitskwela.
“The key to Web3 mass adoption is education, and Bitskwela has always been keen on working with key operator leaders and decision-makers in the space to forward education. Through Bull or Bear, we’re able to provide level-headed education on pivotal Web3 topics,” added Jiro Reyes, chief executive officer of Bitskwela.
