Albert Hild is the CTO of Mondo Gate AG. He has more than 20 years of experience in building internet businesses and is working professionally since 2016 in blockchain and crypto. He will be speaking at the upcoming World Blockchain Summit in Dubai.
Q. Please give us an introduction of yourself. What’s your background?
Hi, I’m Albert Hild and i’m a serial entrepreneur, working more than 20 years in IT, started out as a web developer in the early 2000, founded several agencies, worked for clients like Audi, VW, Scania, launched different non profit projects like Vegman.org. Right now i’m CEO of Mondo Blockchain GmbH – the issuer of the MNDCC according to German laws and CTO of Mondo Gate AG which is our own Made in Germany custodial wallet provider with bank account and credit card.
Q. How did you get into cryptocurrency? What’s your motivation?
My first contact with Bitcoin was back in 2012, I saw it in a famous german magazine – they had a big special on crypto, the money of the future – I ignored that article and with a slight arrogant attitude I thought to myself: there is nothing that cannot be copied on the internet, so it can’t be real money either. I was wrong, and it cost me 4 years until I finally decided to check back what Bitcoin is doing in 2016. After I read the White Paper and finally understood how the Blockchain worked – I was completely shocked that I may have missed the biggest opportunity of recent human history. So I decided to start with Bitcoin mining, switched to industrial Ethereum mining in North Sweden. For 2021 I decided to go full-time crypto – and all my energy should flow into crypto related business from then. This wish came true since I started with my work on the Mondo Community Coin (MNDCC) in the beginning of the year 2021.
Q. How did you start with your current company? Could you tell us about the business?
In November 2020 I was introduced to the visionary and exceptional guy named Werner Wildberger. Werner has been very active in doing worldwide business in different fields, he had the idea to help people that are not familiar with all the tech to move into the digital world like the natives do and enable people to enjoy the digital products that are available on the market. He imagined to decentralize the e-commerce systems with the help of a token. This token became the Mondo Community Coin (MNDCC) and I was set as the CEO of Mondo Blockchain – the issuing company behind the MNDCC. The concept is to have an affiliate web shop that is organized and feed through decentralized organization by the producers, shop owners and users of that software. We as the central organizer should completely be took out of the system to insure full decentralization. What we came up with at the moment, is the shopping portal that will launch end of 2021, it will contain thousands of partner shops, which will be listed according to our decentralized Community Tools of curation and upvoting. Furthermore we will have staking pools for MNDCC through which the user can empower a particular product with improved marketing efforts, increasing views and leads on the internet. The more people stake into a pool, the more visibility the product gets.
The more visibility and leads the product has, the more sales it will generate, from the sales we will receive an affiliate commission, this revenue will be exchanged into MNDCC and put back into the staking pool as reward. Obviously this will create a big demand for the coin and the staking reward comes from a real world income to the stakers. There is a lot more we could tell about the NFT features as well – but this is something we would like to reveal in Q4/2021.
Q. What would you say is the unique selling point of your company? What makes it different from other blockchains/crypto businesses?
Our biggest unique selling point for me is very clear: we are real people, meaning you can write us, call us, meet us. We are transparent, honest and visionary. We are a team of very experienced entrepreneurs from different areas. Our main mission is to connect real world use cases with blockchain applications and make it easy to use.
Q. What do you personally think about current crypto market trends?
Personally I think trends are very important, but every trend tends to be overhyped in the short term and underestimated in the long run. In my career I have seen many different trends in the IT business, and actually every trend beginning with the dotcom bubble over VR, AR, AI went through the same cycle of hype, crash and then long term adoption success. At the moment I would say that any trend deserves to have its group of people that are following and supporting it – in the long run almost everything pays out. For NFT this is especially true – here it feels like we are experiencing a huge crash of NFTs – but as humanity we haven’t even understood what significance NFTs will have in the future. If we’re able to capture any event or object as hashed values on an openly accessible blockchain – it will enable us to have the fully digitalized, automated world that we all (crypto people) are dreaming of.
Q. Please share your thoughts on the future of Blockchain technology and Fintech evolution
Before 2020 I was not sure where the Blockchain, Bitcoin and Fintech evolution will go, but since Corona has boosted the digitalization of almost everything (who thought that QR codes will be in play again?!), I now think that we’ve reached the critical mass in the adoption of Blockchain and Fintech and there cannot be a way to turn back the time into the stone-age of digitalization. Is there anyone who would like to revive Bank branches, trade his assets only from Monday to Friday, or restrict investments to Gold as the only reserve asset? I don’t think so – the possibility to preserve ones “live energy” into monetary energy (credits to Michael Saylor for this thought, thanks!), access it anytime from anywhere is a killer feature and I would not expect that the world will turn away from this idea very soon. So the adoption and synergy between Blockchain and Fintech will grow and take over the world – what else?!
Q. Do you have anything specific to share about your project?
Yes, i have a special request to the readers and interested people: we at Mondo are working in a high risk, very volatile business area on a ground breaking and very ambitious product. If you have anything that you would like to have improved in the e-commerce of the future, then help us building it – give us a call, write an email or join our Telegram group. Thanks!
Q. How does it feel to be a part of Dubai Blockchain ecosystem by taking part at the 19th Edition of World Blockchain Summit in Dubai on Oct 13-14?
It’s great to be part of the Dubai Blockchain ecosystem! Dubai is becoming the hot spot for crypto right now, with its futuristic approach on basically anything it represents our philosophy and attitude that there is nothing that cannot be done! Dubai is an impressive example of an entrepreneur’s spirit and human performance abilities – we are proud to be part of that exceptional mindset around Dubai.
