PODCAST: Crypto Entrepreneur and Mirai Labs Founder Corey Wilton Tells His Story


I had a pretty interesting guest on the TBEN podcast this week.

Corey Wilton, a serial entrepreneur, tells me his story. A boy from the Gold Coast in Australia, he failed to go to university. Today he runs a metaverse company, Mirai Labs, out of Vietnam with 75 employees, and has some great stories about the hysteria of recent years.

Honesty can be hard to find in crypto, but Corey has it. Adept at discussing the dark side of crypto – the pump and dumps, the scams and countless other issues – he also delved into his mistakes and the hurdles he faced, including a failed business inspired by Dollar Shave Club.

For entrepreneurs in space – or indeed for entrepreneurs outside of space – this is worth a listen (if you’ll excuse my bias). There are many lessons Corey has picked up despite his young age, and they are interesting to hear him talk.

Of course, we also chat about blockchain gaming and crypto in general. The sector has clearly retreated en masse and we discuss this new environment and how the easy gains of the bull market are long gone.

I especially enjoyed the blunt review of many projects that just try to tokenize everything regardless of use cases. The bull market is insane to look back on right now, but Corey was right in the middle of it and has some compelling stories to tell.

Despite the launch of Pegaxy, the metaverse racing game, just a year ago, it quickly shot up to 500,000 users before the bear market hit.

Corey now plans to build, improve their still-evolving game and build on everything he’s learned so far. This was a fun one.
