I’ve heard politicians accept crypto donations for a while, but now I’m ready to witness something entirely new.
Karel Janeček, one of the presidential candidates for the next election in the Czech Republic, has decided to run a political campaign in the Metaverse using the Polygon blockchain network.
This is another time when politicians are now using the Metaverse to upset voters.According to the details, the campaign will be dubbed in the Metaverse. Somnium space.. The official announcement from Somnium Space was made on Sunday, July 3rd.publication read:
Karel Yanechek (@ janecek252) Is officially affiliated @SomniumSpace As # Metaverse Officially implement his 2023 Czech Presidential election. Please look forward to future announcements.
This is an exciting development, given that many people were willing to develop the Metaverse. Facebook has led the Metaverse revolution by changing the official name of the company to Meta.
Many other Big Tech companies also work in this area. Meta, Microsoft, and Epic Games have joined the Metaverse Standards Forum (MSF). The group will create open forums for new technologies such as AR, VR, Web 3 and Metaverse.
Somnium Space and Ethereum Blockchain
The Ethereum blockchain network powers the virtual reality (VR) universe of Somnium Space. The Somnium Space platform allows gamers to purchase Metaverse homes, virtual lands, and other in-game assets.
In addition, the immersive dynamics of the Somnium Space platform allow users to build, script, and monetize locations. Interestingly, users can do all this while exploring the contributions of other participants in the virtual world.
In addition, users can enjoy multiple experiences with Somnium Space Metaverse. This includes indulging in activities such as swimming, dining and visiting museums. SomnoumSpace aims to provide a unique experience for the people of the Metaverse.
Polygon, an Ethereum Layer 2 scalability solution, is a reliable choice for many players due to its lower gas prices than Ethereum. This would be an interesting example of how Polygon can help empower the presidential candidate Metaverse.
What do we know about Karel Janechek?
Yanechek was born in Plzen. He graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University in Prague in the fields of probability and mathematical statistics. He holds an MBA in Finance and a PhD from Bradley University, Illinois, USA. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the field of mathematical finance.
From 1998 to 2000, Janeček worked as a math analyst at the hedge fund Market Research Ltd, and from 2004 to 2005 he was a researcher at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Based on his experience, he started the company RSJ algorithmic trading.
From 2007 to 2013, Janeček gave a lecture at the Faculty of Mathematical Physics, Charles University, Prague. He specializes in optimal control of mathematical finance.
Yanechek’s fortune was created in a rather dull world of financial derivative transactions.
Still, in the past, he publicly defended his polyamory — he says he gave up on it in 2020 — and started Buddhism.
Known as an anti-transplant activist and philanthropist, he has helped create a variety of charities, from scientific research to anti-corruption. He devised his own electoral system called the “D21–Janeček Act”. This removes the graft from Czech politics, he says.
The Neuron Endowment Fund, a scientific charity he founded, moved away from Janeček last November after criticizing the government’s anti-pandemic measures during his speech at the Czech Nightingale Music Awards, where he devised a voting system.
“I am running for president with a modern, free and confident vision of the Czech Republic,” said Janechek.
“I present myself as a courageous candidate for democracy with the goal of telling the truth, uniting society and raising important issues.”
