Xsolla Founder, Shurick Agapitov's New Book Chronicles the Landscape of Opportunities in the Future Internet

In the rapidly evolving landscape of technology and innovation, Shurick Agapitov, the visionary founder of Xsolla, is set to redefine the way we perceive the internet with his upcoming book, "Once Upon Tomorrow: Harnessing The New Opportunities The Metaverse Creates." Scheduled for release on March 5, 2024, this literary venture promises to be a compelling guide to the transformative potential of the Metaverse.

Agapitov envisions a future beyond the constraints of existing technologies, where the Metaverse breaks through barriers, serving humanity in diverse aspects such as finance, social interactions, and creative pursuits. Unlike the virtual reality goggles of Zuckerberg's "Meta," Agapitov's vision requires no such barriers, ensuring accessibility for everyone.

For entrepreneurs who might have missed the boat during the rise of e-commerce and mobile internet, Agapitov brings good news - the opportunities within emerging technologies are even more significant. "Once Upon Tomorrow" aims to be a roadmap for those seeking to understand and navigate the burgeoning landscape of the Metaverse.

The digital revolution of the Metaverse, poised to be more powerful than the internet or mobile phones, is not destined to be dominated solely by big Silicon Valley companies. According to Agapitov, anyone with a brand or a story can leverage the Metaverse to build a successful business. With the impending wide-scale adoption just a few years away, entrepreneurs can seize the moment and make their mark in this transformative era.

Xsolla, under Agapitov's leadership since 2015, has become the gaming industry's leading platform, valued at an impressive $3 billion. Operating in over 200 countries and territories and supporting more than 20 languages, Xsolla has continually innovated and expanded its reach. The latest addition to Agapitov's repertoire is X.LA, aimed at democratizing the concepts of Web3 and making them accessible to all.

The book outlines Agapitov's insights into the Metaverse, delving into how it will redefine global communities, work, play, shopping, and brand engagement. While major companies like Nike, Adidas, and Gucci have already embarked on establishing their digital presence in the Metaverse, Agapitov emphasizes that as technology becomes more accessible, anyone can enter the game and create their mega brand.

"Once Upon Tomorrow" unfolds the sometimes elusive concept of the Metaverse, shedding light on the opportunities within this new world. Agapitov draws parallels between the advent of the internet and smartphones, positioning the Metaverse as the next monumental leap in technological evolution.

As readers embark on this journey through the pages of "Once Upon Tomorrow," they will gain a profound understanding of the Metaverse and the boundless opportunities it holds. Shurick Agapitov invites everyone to join him in navigating this wild, wonderful new universe of opportunity that the Metaverse promises to be.
