Nuseir Yassin, Advisor to LGL, added, “I concur with Mr. Kalsy that joining LGL as an Advisor is a great opportunity with mutual benefits. LGL and HoK have taught me a lot about the future of Web3 and I just hope that I can at least return the favour in this new role. My following of almost 50 million people is going to love learning more about my Pocket Dimension as soon as it gets air-dropped to me after the land sale. Project Origin’s P2E gaming features, the NFT-to-avatar portal and other game-changing aspects of this metaverse are what people want, and I’m interested in helping to relay more of my audience’s feedback to help LGL develop new products and services in the future.”
