She works with the bricks and mortar as well as the newest NFT use cases to have a deep, vertical and horizontal understanding of the current developments.

Apart from pixel streaming, immersive experiences and accessibility, Ida has a human-centred approach to metaverse and web topics. She believes that the new technologies should seamlessly support our daily life, and provide an immersive way to interact with the internet that replaces the clunky and flat interactions we currently have today. Her hope is that we can enable new ways of digital interaction that should spend less time online. She is also passionate about using new technologies to solve sustainability challenges and create new economies.
