The gaming and animation industries are entering a new era, and Jules Urbach, CEO of OTOY, is at the cutting edge. Growing up a Star Trek fan, Urbach was fascinated by the idea of a Holodeck. This futuristic tech is not yet possible, but Urbach is making studio-tier rendering accessible to independent digital artists and game designers with the RNDR token. Virtually all movies, video games, and TV shows involve massive levels of rendering these days. Urbach’s blockchain approach allows large numbers of decentralized computers to pool their work. The RNDR token is also being used to incentivize NFT rendering, creating a real decentralized community of artists and technologists. Urbach explains it all in an interview with Santiago Velez, co-founder and R&D lead at Block Digital. Recorded on January 25, 2022.
