Tel K. Ganesan via 360 MAGAZINE

Tel K. Ganesan

Founder and Chairman of Kyyba


Tel K. Ganesan moved to the United States with bright dreams. After being able to earn an engineering degree in India, a change of environment was a challenge, but Tel overcame all those adversities to finish his postgraduate degree as he began his path to success.

His attitude has never allowed him to give up on what has made him Tel K. Ganesan, mentor, philanthropist, and businessman. “If you want an opportunity to knock, it’s time to build a door,” Ganesan says.

Ganesan grew up under the strong influence of his mother’s pursuit of the American Dream. Eventually, Automotive Engineering brought Ganesan to the United States, specifically the city of Detroit, where he pursued a master’s at age 21. He has lived in Detroit for 30 years and has never wanted to leave since he came. He chose this place as his home and to contribute his grain of sand in the city, he is rebuilding everything that has to do with the business landscape with Kyyba Inc., consisting of Kyyba Innovations, Kyyba Wellness, Kyyba Music, Kyyba film, and Kyyba Kidz.

Tel K. Ganesan is the CEO of Kyyba Innovations and President of Kyyba Inc., Engineering Services and Software Products. The Kyyba brand has expanded into film productions through his company Kyyba Films. According to Ganesan: “I started as an ID entrepreneur and then diversified into other areas lately into films, music, Fashions, and wellness so that’s what I’ve been doing so far.’’

Tel K. Ganesan has always believed in doing what the heart says. With the founding of Kyyba Kidz, he has pursued his dreams of making the world a better place by helping the most disadvantaged children. Ganesan has always been grateful for the education and healthcare he received growing up. “A lot of major tech companies are run by people of Indian origin,” Ganesan emphasizes, “the root cause goes back to the societal conditioning of putting education in the mindset of people.” Through educational programs, the foundation seeks to bring trust, honesty, growth, and confidence to every child in need. The main goal of Kyyba Kidz is “to increase the cognitive and psychological awareness of young people to help them achieve great achievements in life by choosing the right career” explains Ganesan on his website.

Ganesan is a testament to faith in his American dream and entrepreneurial spirit. As stated by Tel, “you have only one life. At this point in life, I’m doing something for my spirit which is really getting into this creative space.’’ With perseverance and hard work, he has taken his career from businessman to film producer. “Whatever I learn in one business I apply to another business in another industry and keep it going so I know.’’ Tel Ganesan admits.

Kyyba Films in association with Nasik Rav Media releases “Trap City” starring Brandon T Jackson and actor and GV music composer Prakash. WATCH TRAILERS HERE. As a film producer, Tel Ganesan has an exciting project ahead of him. “I learned about trap culture… And that anyone can be in a trap because of the environment, society, economics, and sometimes even psychological conditions,” he recalls, “and I took this as an inspirational and spiritual awakening of understanding what’s really happening.” “I want to send an inspiring message on how to get out of the Trap through this movie,’’ Ganesan clarifies.

Ganesan is thrilled about the upcoming release of “Trap City” around the first quarter of 2023: “I’m gonna graduate from this one (Trap City)…this is like cutting my teeth into the film business.” Some of Ganesan’s projects after the release of the movie “Trap City” are working in the world of the metaverse and seeking collaborations with other companies with much larger budgets.

Call him a film producer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, innovator, guide, or speaker; Tel K. Ganesan really is an all-rounder. Today, his dreams are a reality. Like any other successful human being, he has pursued ambition with a never-give-up attitude: “Successful people do what unsuccessful people aren’t willing to do. I don’t wish it was easier; I wish you were better.”

HIVE’S FASHION TAKEOVER

*Featured image by Lynn Rossi

The month of September is a yearly indicator for change. It’s mostly for the seasons, but for fashion, it’s brought something extra. The advent of NFT, a digital fashion, has transformed the retail industry in recent times. Shows like HIVEMIND, inspired by purveyors SAIbysai and This Man’s Brand, provided a visual depiction of this phygital trend. Featuring innovative NFT drops in tandem with a live catwalk, the production catapulted spectators into a new age of style.

SAlbysai’s phygital NFT collection with art by Danica Robinson, dropped during her first runway show on September 16 in NYC. The NFT project was produced by Hive and is available on the foundation marketplace.  The event sponsored by Hive and Satoshi’s Closet included a tangible fashion presentation by SAIbysai. Lastly, we held a pilot screening of HIVEMIND by Hive–which recently won “Best NFT Film/Video” at the iHollywood Film Festival. Subsequently, Hive released their WLT skin which permitted access to additonal NFTs and upcoming exclusive events.

The fusion of fashion and technology was groundbreaking. It sparked a deeply rooted conversation from an acclaimed panel of professionals: the founder of Satoshi’s Closet, Michael Pastko; founder of Hive, Bee Davies; and designer of Made by Mena, Chris Mena. Both participants and guests tremendously benefited from this mind-blowing presentation.

Another spectacular event was Holotopia. It’s a new XR fashion event which took place September 24 in Long Beach at Thunder Studios. Of late, This Man’s Brand, powered by Hive, dropped a phygital NFT collection with art fabricated by Chris Arvan. Lastly, cutting-edge AR technology was exhibited from NFT Marketplace DRESSX while XR production was showcased from Holotopia’s team at Metajax, form-u.la and Thunder Studios. The show was streamed live on Decentralland and Twitch, allowing attendees a whimsical behind the scenes peek into the new world order.

For those who missed out on this avant affair go HERE.

Matthew Morgan is an cannabis expert and entrepreneur whom is interviewed by Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE

Matthew Morgan

Listen to Vaughn’s full chat with Matthew Morgan on the 360 MAG podcast HERE.

College dropout and emerging enterpriser Matthew Morgan has effortlessly blended the cannabis industry and the metaverse with the fabrication of Cannaverse Technologies. As a trailblazer in his field, Matthew’s dedication to expanding the cannabis market was simply a magnanimous achievement. In recent times, 360 Magazine has had an opportunity to discuss his vocation and upcoming initiatives.

In his early twenties, Matthew worked as a commercial real estate agent. In 2008, after the economic collapse in the United States, he underwent a financial shock, quickly realizing that he would have to look for a new job. In search of new employment, Matthew noted the growth of medicinal cannabinoids. He soon noticed that the industry was on its way and jumped at the chance to dive into the business.

While the decision to switch hustles was a tough one, Matthew persevered and finally found victory. From the ground up, he constructed various verticals: Bloom Dispensaries, Tryke companies, Reef Dispensaries, Ignite Cannabis Co and Green Axis Capital.

It continued throughout 2020, when the pandemic hit. Quarantined, he was approached in August 2020 for a conference on cannabis. At first, Matthew became confused. After registering, he could take part in such an event, as it was virtual.

Matthew resolved to participate in the conference, despite his parents’ reluctance and found the gold by doing so. He was therefore catapulted to an intersection between Marijuana and Web3. When it reached higher altitudes and epiphany — a virtual immersive reality clinic.

More recently, he plans to pursue his instructions by acquiring as much capital as possible to help others in need. Finally, another tycoon interested in restructuring an upside down dilapidated society with the proper use of technology.

In short, Morgan understands that only a community-based collective will eradicate the marginalization of poor, underprivileged and abandoned pets.

All in all, Matt admits that this will not happen overnight, but at least his feet are firmly anchored. In the end, NASA aimed at the stars and landed on the moon.

Millennials and the Metaverse: Here’s where Gaming and Engagement Come into Play

The digital age has taken over our daily lives. We now have technology that does everything for us – wake us up, read us our daily news, count our calories – the list goes on. But what the digital age has done for us most: provide fun and engaging ways for us to spend our downtime. 

The gaming universe has become one of the most flourishing industries of all time. With millions of games to choose from, like Bubble Hit, people of all ages can connect, engage, and enjoy. Recent reports show that the younger the generation, the higher the likelihood of engagement in the mobile gaming industry. Studies have shown that every 8/10 Millennial and Gen Z consumers are playing video games. Gaming is even on track to replace movies and television as the preferred form of entertainment. With numbers like this, it is a no brainer to begin ventures into this highly grossing marketplace. 

This thought is actually what created the staple of today’s gaming: the metaverse. With gaming on the rise, something had to be done to take it to the next level. The metaverse is an immersive virtual reality. Gamers enter this virtual world, “live”, and participate in activities in this virtual world. You may, in fact, have seen or heard of the metaverse in many different aspects besides gaming. The idea of NFT’s/cryptocurrency, for example, is another aspect of the metaverse. Games like Roblox, Minecraft, and Fortnite are examples of popular gaming sites that have immersed their users into the metaverse. 

But what exactly about the metaverse makes it so attractive? 

You can have fun with your friends anywhere,anytime. In the past, games could only be played together in person. But the metaverse extends the fun. Just the click of a button can take you into a new reality with all your friends. But the metaverse does more than just connect you with your friends – it can actually make you money. 

“I want to level the financial playing field and give the masses the opportunity to reach financial wealth,” remarks CEO John Vitti of VersusGames

Vitti transcended the already futuristic metaverse by going a step above and beyond – instead of simply having fun, you can have fun and earn money. VersusGames is a prediction-based gaming app, allowing you to make predictions that test your knowledge on all things pop culture. You enter a one-on-one match up, earning money through correct predictions. In addition to those earnings, by referring a friend, you earn 5% of their earnings. Players are earning so much that they’re even quitting their jobs! Here, the idea of the metaverse takes on a new meaning. The metaverse extends from the virtual world to reality, allowing you to turn your gaming into real-life profit. 

VersusGames also allows influencers and celebrities to engage with their fans. As creators host games, they are able to earn consistent profits from their engagement. Unlike other big tech giants that only have a small pot of funds for all of their creators, VersusGames ensures creators get value for their time. But VersusGames is more than another PR opportunity – celebrities like Kevin Hart, Jason Derulo, and internet superstars Josh Richards and David Dobrik find VersusGames a meaningful way to form genuine connections with their fans. 

VersusGames is a great example of how engagement is enhanced through the metaverse. By turning virtual fun into real-life profit, consumers aren’t just engaging with the product once, but consistently coming back for more. Besides a higher retention rate, the metaverse provides another layer of enhanced gaming. With tools like virtual reality sets, you aren’t simply playing a video game, you are inside of one. Gaming goes from a 2-D to 3-D experience. The physical gaming experience has become more immersive than ever, as well as the real-life opportunities that go with them. Gaming isn’t simply a passtime anymore. Thanks to the metaverse, it has become a lifestyle. 

With every innovation comes its skeptics. Many are worried about the impacts of the metaverse on privacy. With new technology like the metaverse, so much is unknown. From tracking your physical movements and patterns when you play games, to tracking personal and financial information in transferring gaming money to money in the bank, a lot of consumers are worried about the implications of these actions. Companies are ensuring that with this brand new technology, consumers remain the priority. Privacy laws regarding the new metaverse technology are now being developed to protect consumer privacy first and foremost. 

Another fear with the metaverse is its implications on its players’ physical and mental health. By entering such an immersive world, some players have experienced a feeling similar to a hangover or depression period after exiting the game. When switching from such an exciting and immersive world, the switch back into reality can sometimes be challenging. Companies like VersusGames have worked to ease the transition by providing real-life opportunities for advancement from the games, and allowing social interaction to be a large part of the game. By staying connected to others in the metaverse, players’ confidence in their abilities to interact is high, helping bridge the gap of social anxiety, and encouraging more genuine connection in reality. 

To sum up, here are the key features the metaverse provides your gamers:

  • An immersive and engaging gaming experience
  • Opportunities for profit
  • A great way to connect with friends/family

Gaming is redefining the entertainment industry. As the younger generations are now engaging with entertainment more often, gaming has become at the forefront of priorities. The era of the metaverse is here – it is time to get on board!

Will we Have Complete Control of Our Own Environments in the Metaverse?

The metaverse is on the way, and the hype around it is gaining serious traction. It could be completely transformative, changing the internet as we know it. It will have a major effect on many industries, with social media expected to be at the forefront of this new platform.

Social media users today have a multitude of privacy options so they can control what people see. However, there are questions about how and if this will translate to the metaverse.

Social Media Users Are Currently Able to Select Their Privacy Options

One of the reasons why social media sites have enjoyed such amazing success is the fact that users can tailor their own environments. They can see what they want to see and show people what they want to show them.

A lot of social media users value their privacy with the utmost importance. Nearly 80 percent of Facebook and Instagram members have adjusted their privacy settings in the last year, highlighting how crucial these features are.

According to an infographic from ExpressVPN, there are various ways to stay safe and private on social media. This includes having multiple accounts for different purposes, reviewing photo tags, and limiting posts to close friends. Users have so much control over these settings that they can create their own social media experience.

How Will This Translate to the Metaverse?

Because so much is unknown about the metaverse right now, it’s hard to know how these privacy settings will translate to this new world. According to XR Today, the metaverse will serve a wide variety of functions. This will include socializing, working, and playing. If people are using this world for different things, it may mean that their settings will have to alter depending on what they are doing.

Users may interact with the metaverse on different levels, some of which will give them more control than others. It’s reasonable to imagine that in social scenarios, everyone will have the power to show and see things in the same way they do now. However, when entering wider social settings like groups or entertainment zones, users may be exposed to content that they have no power over.

Metaverse inhabitants may still be able to block people as they can today on social media. If they encounter a blocked person in a social setting, they may not be able to see the face of their avatar or interact with them in any way.

There are already some theories about this, such as the ideas posed by Futurism. Metaverse users may be able to block things that they don’t want to see and go about constructing their own virtual worlds over time. Eventually, this could lead to bespoke experiences for everyone who enters the metaverse.

There’s no doubt that it’s going to take time for users to adapt to the metaverse. It is also likely to go through a lot of teething problems before it is as advanced as the world of social media today. Users have grown accustomed to constructing their own online spaces, though, and the metaverse is likely to offer similar options.

Osean world

OSEANWORLD POP-UP

25-year-old digital artist Osean has announced his latest collaboration within the metaverse. Joining forces with social impact-driven metaverse gaming platform REALM, Osean has created NU RADIO, a unique and creative space encapsulating the richness of Oseanworld, the passionate inclusivity of REALM, and the interests of Ocean’s dedicated fan base and engaged community. The creative team will take to Elizabeth Street, NYC, on June 21-22 for a NU RADIO-themed pop-up which will allow attendees to go on an AR scavenger hunt around the City.

The scavenger hunt will feature a trippy neon arcade, where fans and media will gain a first look at Oseanworld’s latest adventure. Fans will be led on a scavenger hunt around Manhattan, collecting points via the Realm app at each designated stop. There will also be plenty of chances to win prizes from Ocean’s highly sought-after digital and physical clothing and accessories collections. Osean and REALM have both dedicated their platforms to bridge the gap between the digital landscape and reality, and this pop-up is the perfect opportunity to explore what that looks like. Attendees will also be able to play the Beta of NU RACE, with the official REALM beta launch taking place on July 21st in NYC

REALM presents an entirely new canvas for Osean, allowing him to take his artistic visions for the dreamy Oseanworld universe to an even higher level. REALM weaves AR, VR, and mixed reality into its platform, employing the most innovative tech and enabling artists to expand their creativity with very few limits. 

Osean, who has collaborated with big-name music artists like Offest, Madeon, Lauv, and Trippie Redd, works at the intersection of anime, self-actualization, and Gen Z pop culture. Coming of age in a generation that has lived largely online, Osean seeks to represent this experience while providing a chance for real connection in an increasingly digitized and decentralized universe. 

NU RADIO will allow for limitless creativity. The platform will feature a main hub with multiple minigames where players can be fully immersed in Oseanworld. Users will lose themselves in NU RADIO City: a beacon of socializing, quest discovery, and NU RADIO racing (a multiplayer racing game with prizes and custom Oseanworld avatars). Featuring candy-colored skies and Osean’s signature character, Mad Monkeii, NU RADIO will be available on iOS and android, with PC and VR versions to closely follow. The NU RADIO official game “NU RACE” is set to launch later this summer and will allow multiplayer races in true Oseanworld fashion.

CEO of NFT VIP Julie Lamb via 360 Magazine

JULIE LAMB

NFT-VIP: Bridge to Reality

Julie Lamb, the CEO, Founder, and Executive Producer of How-To with Julie Sue, is a problem solver, storyteller, digital content creator, and economy connector. She is a collector of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum and is passionate about helping brands build their identity using current tools and a highly selected network of virtual agents to develop the entrepreneurial capacity of brands. She has already collaborated with multiple popular brands such as iHome, Disney, KidDesigns, Hasbro, CES, KeaBabies, Michael Todd Beauty, and Crown Goose USA. 

Listen to Julie Lamb’s full conversation with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

While studying music, Julie went to Europe and started working on fashion collections. She finally settled in New York, where Julie has 30 years of experience working as a model. By highlighting the activity with Brunello Cucinelli on Saks Fifth Avenue, Julie mentioned that her creative confidence was greatly inspired after moving from a small Southwestern town to the Big Apple, New York City. 

Julie has long loved the worlds of tech, digital, and speed: ‘I like being able to share things digitally.’ At the forefront of the crypto wave in 2017, she bought Ethereum, a digital platform used to make smart contracts, allowing entrepreneurs to create decentralized applications, as in the case of Julie. 

Immersed in the realm of cryptocurrencies, the trailblazer supports projects like Non-Fungible Token (NFT). As a rapidly developing industry, NFT is becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell digital art, spanning industries like sports, music, fashion, film, games, etc. The annual NFT conference, held in multiple cities (including New York City and Los Angeles) around the United States, attracts hundreds of guests from various fields who speak about exponential growth and future trends in different verticals and how the digital landscape can incorporate this new tradeable product. 

As an NFT-VIP (in which 360 MAGAZINE will serve as one of the media sponsor), Julie’s mission is to shape the NFT industry into diverse communities made of global thought leaders who share like-minded values and beliefs. Last April, she attended the Miami NFT week and served as its Executive Producer, where she focused on igniting new dialogue amongst attendees and tastemakers on topics related to technology, creative installations, immersive art, and performance. Julie can be recognized as an economy connector for providing the space for several minority-owned businesses in this conference to discuss the present and future of the meta-universe and how it affects them. 

Although the attendance was underrepresented and some representative minority-owned businesses felt left out, Julie declared her conditional support for the voice of women and the LGBTQ community. Meanwhile, this kind of offline meeting takes highly digital products further into reality, narrowing the society’s discrimination against aging. In addition, she is fascinated by using Web3.0 and its implementation with artists in the fields of music, fashion, and the token economy.

An example of this is that the international brand Gucci has started a multi-directional exploration to embrace the digital world, which associates a luxury brand with emerging technologies through a series of avatar experiences; i.e. exhibitions of Gucci art, mini-games, and digital item purchases.

Julie is now preparing a private event in New York City with NFT VIP sponsorships from June 19th-22nd at Margaritaville Resort Times Square, owned by the real estate and investment firm Soho Properties. Surprise celebrities will be attending that directly tie in with her message and bring new inspiration to the community. Sponsorship opportunities available for this four-day event.

In the field of cryptocurrencies, that features multiple sponsors, will have an additional sponsor called the crypto coin concierge. They will cover the luxury travel for the most elite global clients in the world of cryptocurrencies and with payment through these. Julie tells us that her company has also partnered with iHeartRadio on Crypto Radio in the marketing industry.
