Don Diablo is launching his own cryptocurrency Hexcoin that will be used for a new VR/AR/XR crypto channel. Hexcoin will kickstart a hyper reality world called Hexagonia, which is also the name of his podcast and tied into his label, Hexagon.
If you head to the website for Hexcoin, you will feel like you are at SXSW, with a tech buzzword every sentence. It promises this is the “world’s first hyper reality (AR/VR/XR) 'crypto' channel.”
"As a creator of electronic music, I’ve always been engaged in technology and how it can connect my art to the outside world," Don Diablo said. “With HEXCOIN and HEXAGONIA, I see a future where the line between fan, artist and technology blurs, and creativity is unleashed in powerful, measurable ways. I’m extremely excited to welcome Hexagonians and future fans to the next level of technology in music.”
The coin is being launched with Gaze Coin, a currency token. An ICO will be announced in the coming weeks. People can express their interest on the website.
DJs are the ideal people to get into crypto because the business is based on technology. Don’t be surprised if many more big names get involved. Some will do it with awful ideas for a quick buck and others because they actually care. That is just how tech is.
