“We are building an important platform that will enable young athletes to receive the visibility and rewards they deserve based on their talent level,” Omri Lachman, CEO and co-founder at LEAP, said. “For too long, athletes from certain backgrounds or geographic regions have seen ‘going pro’ as the only solution to better their lives, and we are here to show them that going pro is not the only win. We are bridging the traditional sports industry with emerging talents and fans to unlock a brand new universe where everyone has an equal shot at the title by bringing their physical skills into the digital space.”9 June 2022
Omri Lachman is the chief executive officer of LEAP, a next-generation sporting discovery and endorsement gaming platform which leverages Web3 and blockchain technology.
In Lachman’s opinion, “As a matter of principle, I don’t think people should be rewarded for accomplishing fundamental basic activities, as much as we don’t get incentivised for breathing or drinking water. It’s a good concept to encourage people to live better or be more healthy. That being said, there is a fine line between motivating and incentivising”.
Additionally, Lachman believes that “as part of move-to-earn being successful as a niche, the challenge of user experience will definitely become a bottleneck”.
But even though “it is not perfect”, Lachman did contend that “the move-to-earn buzz is a step in the right direction towards leveraging technological advancements and raising sports-participation figures”.9 June 2022
