Meet Orion Depp, Community Growth Advisor

Author: Synesis One

“One of my favorite things about Synesis One is the team. It’s exactly what crypto needs right now,” he concludes.

To kick off our highly anticipated listing on Raydium today, we are pleased to introduce you to Orion Depp our Community Growth Advisor, who brings with him a hugely diverse and varied background and an understanding of what makes a transformative crypto proposition. He was excited to advise Synesis One due to the combination of our transforming traditional financial models and out of the box thinking.

“Synesis One is creating the ultimate use case for those interested in investing, P2E, and creator-based economies such as NFTs. If executed well the project could raise the bar of innovation in the crypto space,” he tells us.

A Tech and Crypto Native

Orion has worked across a number of industries and positions. He is a 40 under 40 recipient of the MBA in Investment Management from the University of Southern California. He has also studied at institutions such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the London School of Economics (LSE) and the University of California San Diego (UCSD). He has had a long and varied career in the worlds of tech and blockchain. He began working as a developer with Apple at the age of 17. He’s since gone on to found a Fintech VC that secured over 10 exits, including one to Amazon. He’s worked as a crypto analyst and researcher covering altcoins. He’s contributed to the execution of the largest ICO in South America. He works as a hugely admired and regarded advisor in DeFi and NFTs.

His enthusiasm for tech paved a natural avenue into crypto.

“ I started my own online investment bank but back then we didn’t have the technology or decentralization to do what I envisioned. Crypto was a natural evolution of my vision of aiding retail investors to overcome the power of big banks and corporations. I officially started working in crypto in 2017 when I became the first institutional research analyst to cover Altcoins and I initiated coverage on the Binance Coin (BNB) at $6,” he says.

In particular he grew to become a notable expert in Solana. Solana is set to be the biggest growing blockchain as we head further into 2022; it can support 50,000 transactions per second at a much lower cost than many of its rivals.

Solana is the Future

“Solana is the fastest and cheapest- large blockchain on the market. It also combines strong aspects of centralization and decentralization, striking a balance between the two and provides structure and organization to NFT protocols and marketplaces,” Orion confirms.

In fact his huge support for Solana was the way he made a connection with Synesis One and our work as a growing name in the world of NFTs on the ecosystem.

“I’d been working with the Solana ecosystem since 2018 when one of my projects received funding from Alameda Research. I had heard great things about Joshua Hong and felt that Synesis One was going to be a potential forerunner in Solana’s quest to be a leader in the NFT space,” he remarks.

Solana’s attributes make it the ideal place for the emerging world of the metaverse and NFTs. Orion sees them as a huge opportunity to push growing communities and new economic models. He explains:

“Gaming and the Metaverse have exploded as a result of a global redistribution of wealth to the emerging economies. As we continue to see crypto sub-economies in emerging markets such as gaming or metaverse grow until global purchase power parity becomes more equitable, especially in Southeast Asia and South America.”

The Importance of Community

And community is a huge part of what Orion looks for in both his work and personal investment. Which is one of the reasons he has invested in Synesis One, as well as choosing to work with us.

“I think the community should do very well. In addition to being an advisor, I’m also a Synesis One investor and think loyalty to the project will pay off,” he says.

And community is something that Orion has noted that is already inherent within the organization.

“One of my favorite things about Synesis One is the team. It’s exactly what crypto needs right now,” he concludes.
