With all the hype surrounding Metaverse, the NewsBTC team spoke with Tim Bullman, Co-Founder of the Caduceus Foundation to learn more about their initiative. Caduceus is a blockchain dedicated to the development of the metaverse, supporting developers and creators to build their own metaverse, NFT, GameFi and DeFi projects. Here are excerpts from our interview.
Q: Can you tell us a little more about your journey that led to Caduceus?
Team: After successfully launching the first corporate crypto brokerage business in the UK, I met my other co-founders. We shared the same vision that the blockchain sector needs a reliable, robust ecosystem for a global audience to make a meaningful connection with such a new technology. We have analyzed all other blockchain features, pros and cons, and found a unique angle where we can make a difference and provide a truly robust infrastructure for Web 3 developers. The future of the metaverse in the world of the Web3 era will have multiple chains coexisting. A true metaverse would connect all other virtual worlds and transfer personal data and currency between different ecosystems through protocols that span time, platforms, and devices. This is also what Caduceus strives for and actively implements. At its current stage, Caduceus will use the underlying architecture to support various independent applications in the metaverse field. At a later stage, these applications will be integrated and connected in series to realize a system consisting of different applications, different devices and user experiences, which will be the prototype of the Caduceus Metaverse.
Q: What is Caduceus trying to solve?
Team: The Metaverse is a huge topic and will undoubtedly play an important role in our future digital life. However, the development of the metaverse requires high rendering power, and the current cost of various centralized providers is extremely high. With Caduceus’ unique decentralized edge rendering solutions, developers can provide audiences with a simpler, cheaper and highly efficient experience. Metaverse emphasizes an immersive interactive experience for the fusion of the virtual and the real. What the market really needs is an innovator who can not only achieve its own development, but also lead the trend of the metaverse, and behind this innovation be inseparable from the support of edge computing, globally distributed heterogeneous computing power and efficient rendering services. As a new form of metaverse infrastructure, we believe the Caduceus metaverse protocol is technically outstanding. The combination of edge computing and blockchain will lay a solid foundation for credible and efficient collaboration between multiple vertical industries. These compute and compute-derived rendering resources will also meet the compute power demand of Metaverse application scenarios, bringing a more extreme Metaverse interactive experience.
Q: So what is your role in Caduceus?
Team: I have spent the past 25 years building and managing businesses in the capital and digital markets, so I have experience in administrative and operational functions. This coupled with a strong drive to promote business development will be my focus in the short to medium term. We will set a long-term strategy on ensuring strong connections with the community and wider audience to align with their vision as well as our own.
Q: How is Caduceus different from other blockchain protocols?
Team: Four different aspects:
- Super fast transaction speed
- Super low transaction costs
- Custom consensus mechanism
- A unique low-cost decentralized edge plotting solution
On top of that, we’re building a set of tools to improve our development environment to make life a lot easier for future developers. Our goal is to lower the entry level so that more talent can join this exciting space.
Q: What are the different applications and industry verticals that you see Caduceus adopting?
Team: With the focus on enterprise-level products, there is a demand for real productivity tools that provide developers with a friendly and convenient development environment, which is the original intent of Caduceus. Therefore, Caduceus carefully considers “performance, robustness, scalability, flexibility and reliability” in the architectural concept, and provides developers with a decentralized and fully modularized system in line with the current Metaverse market demand. Blockchain with lower transaction costs, higher speed and a strong emphasis on security and scalability. Currently, Caduceus released the main net. At the same time, it will implement a multi-stage network iteration, systematically organize internal and external useful resources, and create software that is truly easy to use with technical advantages such as developer friendliness and complete development tools from a systems engineering perspective. .
We expect game developers, metaverses, Dex and NFT creators to join the caduceus.
