Adam Hollander Biography
Adam Hollander is a serial entrepreneur and has spent the last decade launching and growing successful companies. In 2011 he founded FantasySalesTeam, a gamification platform that encouraged employee motivation through interactive competition. That company was acquired by Microsoft in 2015 and fully integrated into Microsoft Dynamics CRM. After spending two years with Microsoft as their Director of Gamification, he joined a medical education startup, OnlineMedEd, in 2017 as their COO and fourth employee. Adam spent 4.5 years with the company which now boasts more than 350,000 monthly users and recently completed a $25 million fundraise.
Adam has now turned his attention to a unique and fast-growing market: NFTs. NFTs have been taking the art and collectables world by storm with billions of dollars in sales and certain high-end collections.
“Imagine walking into a museum and seeing a priceless piece of art on the wall. You could take a picture of it, but it wouldn’t be worth anything. You could buy a print in the gift shop, but that wouldn’t be worth very much either. The original piece is valuable because it’s the original,” Adam explained in a recent article.
“Until recently, you could copy a digital asset, like a picture, an unlimited number of times and each would be identical. You could never prove which was the original. As a result, it was extremely hard to value digital art. With NFTs and the blockchain, all of that has changed. Now an artist or company can create a scarce number of digital assets and distribute them with infallible proof of ownership.
This is game-changing not just for art and collectables, but for other types of assets ranging from digital land to medical records.”
“The bar is being consistently reset. A few months ago, you could create an NFT project with relatively low-quality artwork, a completely anonymous team, and it would sell out based purely on speculation,” said Adam. “That’s changing now. Projects are becoming more established and are being treated like companies raising investment with meaningful value expectations. I believe Hungry Wolves will raise that bar yet again by creating dynamic game engagement and competition.”
