Prior to joining BitPay, Ordano worked as an engineering intern at Google while attending the Instituto Tecnologico de Buenos Aires engineering school. In addition, Ordano worked on a few Bitcoin-related projects. Meilich studied neuroscience and economics at New York University and used Bitcoin to run his outsourcing business in college, which struggled due to the country’s strict laws. This application made him aware of the “freedom” that blockchain technology offered, which encouraged him to join Voltaire, a Buenos Aires “hacker house.” Before starting Decentraland together, Meilich and Ordano got to know one other at Voltaire.
In 2022, Decentraland has already commemorated a few significant events. Most notably, Samsung revealed in the first week of January that it will create a digital version of a real-world store in New York in Decentraland. This was one of Decentraland’s largest brand takeovers, according to the electronics company.
Decentraland and Tennis Australia collaborated to stage a digital Australian Open competition. A virtual reconstruction of several Melbourne Park tennis-specific sections will be a part of the effort. According to a spokeswoman for the Australian Open, they will keep working with Decentraland in the future. In 2022, it is anticipated that Ordano will continue to pursue significant brand deals, and with his active support, Decentraland’s adoption will continue.
