Yvan Mudrakowski bringing Iconic & Historical Yachts to the Metaverse with cryptoyachts.art (Episode 253)
Yvan Mudraowski joins us to discuss bringing Iconic & Historical Yachts to the Metaverse with cryptoyachts.art.
Yvan.M is from France and just graduated for a Top Business School. Since the age of 16 he has been managing a boat rental agency in the French Riviera in order to pay my bills, his side hustle and my business school. The nautical sector rapidly became a passion for him. He then assisted a Yacht Charter in Sydney and get back to France with my Boat Skipping license. With this passion, his goal is to bring value to the Yachting industry by applying blockchain and create the 1st tokenized community for the Yachting industry.

Richard Carthon: Hello, everyone, and welcome to another episode of Crypto Current, your host here, Richard Carthon. And today I have a special guest all the way out in France that is working on a project that is super unique that I know that I’m curious to learn more about. We have the captain with the crypto yachts. How are you doing today?
00:00:21:17 – 00:00:52:06
Yvan Mudrakowska: Hello, everyone. Thank you, Richardl, for having me today. If it’s so, so, so happy because yesterday we finally reached the 1500 on the on the discord of over. The first was the first tokenized yacht club. So if you saw the energy source, so good, right, right now with you, but also with my we’ve micromanages was so happy to share, to share about a bit about my project and to talk also about you, about a
00:00:53:24 – 00:00:57:25
Yvan Mudrakowska: space with you today.
00:00:57:27 – 00:01:20:13
Richard Carthon: Yeah, 100 percent, man. Well, we’re looking forward to learning more about you and everything you got going on. And again, you are tokenizing the yacht community, which is extremely unique and we don’t want to unpack that and learn more. But first, want to learn more about you? I believe you are currently finishing up your masters at a pretty prestigious university in Europe. Can you tell us a little bit more about that and your background?
00:01:21:22 – 00:01:53:12
Yvan Mudrakowska: Thank you, thank you. Thanks for having me. So just one thing to mention, the captain is just a nickname for the project. My name is Yvonne Drucker Scott. I’m basically from the north of France, where where I’m just shooting and finished. I’m finishing my studies at the top, the top business school in France and in Europe. So have been I have been developing some nice skills in business for this strain, but also for the past few years.
00:01:53:14 – 00:02:30:03
Yvan Mudrakowska: Since I’m since I’m 16 years old, I have been so deep in towards the yachting industry. I first walked or when I was so young, simply in the water until I didn’t see cleaning from boats. And step by step I took my housekeeping license. I took my yeah. I managed to become simply a manager of football intelligence in the French Riviera. It was an amazing experience and I also managed to go out on my own of my grandfather going going to Sydney during a gap year as your charter.
00:02:30:16 – 00:03:09:26
Yvan Mudrakowska: So, no, yeah, I know that. I know that I will stay focused on the coaching industry for the rest of my life. And when I just go like Winfrey, when you go step by step, I was like, OK, there’s something to do. There is a value to add for the industry and passionate about. So why not? I have this course in marketing, digital marketing, business and and the passion for the for your team. So why not combining crypto and yacht and qualities in peer group together to create the first your club and scale it as much as we as we can?
00:03:10:29 – 00:03:47:09
Richard Carthon: OK, men, so that is extremely unique. The fact that you have such experience within like the community and understanding how that community kind of comes together and then bringing that in, merging that with crypto and understanding how to market and bring it into Web3 NFT metaverse, like so many different avenues that you can go within this space. I guess the first thing that I want to start with is like, what was your introduction into the crypto space and what motivated you to want to try to bring that type of real world yacht experience to the crypto crypto community?
00:03:50:02 – 00:04:21:20
Yvan Mudrakowska: It goes like one year ago when a step-by-step go deep into the crypto in general in general and NFT step by step. I understood that it was not only about buying digital piece of art. I understood that it was also about reaching a community and in the yachting industry, like you have all this yacht club that’s like in the real world that you have like. So they are located at the specific specific place and the country scale globally.
00:04:22:01 – 00:05:00:13
Yvan Mudrakowska: So contrary to contrary, simply with NFT, right? No vanity you can tokenized, tokenized or the membership trike or all your members. And simply tokenization is the best way to scale something. So I got to know more about that. Joining Dao So Decentralized Autonomous Organization. One year ago and I was like, OK, that’s something that’s that’s one of the best thing to do to create and with a community with with your with your own community.
00:05:00:26 – 00:05:13:12
Yvan Mudrakowska: And so step by step, I was like, OK, maybe there’s something. There’s definitely something to do for you. It’s an industry. Creating illustrations are the first to organize your club. So I went,
00:05:15:02 – 00:05:46:15
Yvan Mudrakowska: Yeah, I just got the NFT space like one year ago, step-by-step. I got to know more about all this stuff. All this organization stuff. And I was like, OK, there’s nothing to do for your team so passionate about your team. That’s that’s the opportunity of your life to agree to bring some of the value of food to the industry, to want to go out of your comfort zone. And yeah, you know, Unilever owns such as done for you even to do something.
00:05:46:17 – 00:05:58:13
Yvan Mudrakowska: So that’s why that’s why I decided to take this opportunity and turn it and turn it into something amazing for fortune and fortune into space as a symptom.
00:05:59:26 – 00:06:21:15
Yvan Mudrakowska: Oh, that’s cool, man. And you saw this opportunity, you decided to merge it together, so as we look at the crypto yachts. Is this mainly for the ability to own a cool and have. Is it to then be able to be able to go on a yacht? Can you walk us through like what is the vision of crypto yachts?
00:06:24:16 – 00:06:38:18
Yvan Mudrakowska: Yeah, so first, I just want to say that it’s it took us seven months to to realize the yacht because it’s a manual process. We didn’t use any air.
00:06:41:05 – 00:07:14:01
Yvan Mudrakowska: We didn’t use any algorithm. It’s not that. It’s not, it’s not generative collections. So one by one, we have some bookseller artists. We took the time to create the best collection possible to bring some, reunite the artwork first and then step by step. We were like, OK, we should definitely pursue this. You just take everywhere. We have been thinking about the world that for for the past seven months to finally bring it on on the website.
00:07:14:21 – 00:07:44:29
Yvan Mudrakowska: We got some feedback also from all the early members, earlier Yoshi’s. We call them adoptees. That’s amazing. And we built something with them. No, I’m not perfect. No. The artwork also is perfect. And also, we we purges YouTube. So just to mention, for example, when you when you meet a field, it’s of you. Same as in reality, you will have a that there’s no two dogs, your yachts in the marina.
00:07:45:13 – 00:08:15:27
Yvan Mudrakowska: So this is is this marina number will also be part of the variety show, depending on where you are located in the marina. You are your your yacht will be a more or less more or less rare, more or less. Yeah. Is it true and also why we personal security detail of the marina? So inside the marina, inside the might be so will be inside the website.
00:08:15:29 – 00:08:27:13
Yvan Mudrakowska: You were always free and marina website. We’re able to to rename your yacht, attach to social media and put on board all your latest. So
00:08:28:28 – 00:08:52:22
Yvan Mudrakowska: if you want, for example, two, it looks like a gallery. If you want, for example, to share to share your marina, berth a number with some of your crypto that you to get on board with some of the reserves you put on board of health on the computer. You would just have to show your link and show off that to Twitter, to you, to your relatives or to your Twitter.
00:08:54:03 – 00:09:10:05
Yvan Mudrakowska: That’s cool, so you’re essentially you took the time to, I believe, create seven hundred and thirty three unique pieces of yacht art. And by purchasing one of these, you then have the ability to have an actual marina dock. So not only in the.
00:09:12:14 – 00:09:32:04
Richard Carthon: In a world where you have this are the metaverse, if you will, where you can go on to your yacht. Put your different NFTs on there and be able to show them to the world. You also, physically in the real world, will have a dock where if you have a yacht or boat or what have you, where you can dock your physical ship, is that right?
00:09:33:06 – 00:10:23:03
Richard Carthon: No, no, that’s right. Now it’s just so way free with every platform that enables you to work towards digitally a show of unity onboard. But for sure, in the long run you to trauma, you will be able to attend some, some physical, some like some real events in the world. So in the is a roadmap, so we go deep into the digital thing for the life we want mariners face. Phase two of who’s sponsoring for sponsoring, organizing metaverse events, creating, buying, buying, metaverse reading or on Yacht Club on the metaverse are out to with yachts, crypto yachts and sell it to two or three people in order to fund real life events and the dynamism of our community.
00:10:23:10 – 00:11:17:09
Richard Carthon: So step by step will release a new collection of crypto cruise, crypto or just because same as in real life. If you have a yacht but you don’t have a crew on board, you don’t have any jet ski. It’s not fun. It’s not fun. So we realize this and this is just a few drops will enable or fails to organise the first okwaraji of gear to to to fund them real life events. So we plan to organise free bodies one in Sydney for the agenda, about one in Monaco for the European boat and last one would be would be Miami for sure for the American board in order to to to meet all the all the members and to share a nice experience and experience all along as the world falls for the community member as well.
00:11:17:14 – 00:11:48:14
Richard Carthon: We will also in the real life of funds for the young, young sailing athletes. So we so we will do our best to sponsor saying that in races like bearing like or logo on the summer, saying thank you both for the ball putting our logo on some on some jet ski. Just key provision that professional racer, this kind of thing and step by step with the volume, like with the volume of the
00:11:50:01 – 00:12:08:18
Richard Carthon: yacht and the crypto crew to jet ski with with the addition widget and that we will get, we’ll be able to for sure when central to our phone on we all we all yachting events. And so the final goal of that’s the final goal of us
00:12:10:12 – 00:12:22:22
Richard Carthon: right now is to two minutes after Oslo police to buy a yacht for the community. So it’s just token you you own will be your share of the shot.
00:12:24:27 – 00:12:27:14
Richard Carthon: For sure, it will not happen to us in
00:12:29:21 – 00:12:46:21
Richard Carthon: 2020 22, but step by step with the volume will get because audiences will get the attention with. Yet we will also be able to to attend. We will reach this objective, an ability that is shared by all or the other.
00:12:48:20 – 00:12:56:27
Richard Carthon: Yeah, so very glad to to finally like to manage to get to this point. After after seven months as cool.
00:12:57:25 – 00:13:16:06
Richard Carthon: So you’re you have an international focus. The goal is to get into some major places and like you said, Sydney Miami and I believe one other area and you’re you’re going to allow ultimately to get a yacht in which you have this.
00:13:18:00 – 00:13:51:18
Richard Carthon: Physical, yeah, that your community can either come in, use or throw a party on or you’re really trying to create that fun experience in real world, but also in the in the digital slash metaverse as well. And on this, you you brought up something that I want to go back in and spend a little bit more time on. You have what is called these, these births, these basically these places where you’re going to be able to go in and have different marinas.
00:13:51:27 – 00:13:54:09
Richard Carthon: Can you kind of talk a little bit more about the marina births?
00:13:56:15 – 00:14:34:19
Yvan Mudrakowska: So just simply simply, for the money, not with no, it’s for the River Murray, not so it’s basically after I’ve done anything you or your crew tired, you will be able to log in with your crypto wallet on the website or move on the very secure web for your website, which marina you will be able to select on the map. You’ll marry Lovebird and like, attach your social on your marina, on your own, on your other shore so you’re on your mobile, not attach the NFT you want to put on board of the yacht and rename your yacht whenever you want.
00:14:34:25 – 00:14:45:18
Yvan Mudrakowska: For example, if you want to call your daughter as wall and overnight you want to go it, I don’t know Marguerite first name. It would be possible for you to read, but
00:14:47:14 – 00:15:08:17
Yvan Mudrakowska: I do not advise any. And you want to rename a yacht because it’s kind of a it’s not a it’s bad luck in the nautical or in the ARIA. Renaming renaming of yachts after buying it is kind of bad luck so you can do it. But if I wear a, you’re just amazing, I will not rename you.
00:15:09:27 – 00:15:31:13
Richard Carthon: Got it now. That’s good advice, especially for those who didn’t know that, because I sure did not know that. So obviously you’re going after a community that has a pretty good understanding of yachts and yachts, experiences and everything else. But for those who don’t like, for example, myself, why would someone want to get one of these crypto yachts?
00:15:32:11 – 00:15:55:11
Sure. Sure, sure. Like we focus, all focus is on the nautical industry is a an industry, but for sure, right now we are very, very, very early, even in one year. Some people are we still don’t know what is next. What are the benefits of using NFC to scale to scale an organization?
00:15:57:11 – 00:16:22:14
But yeah, I mean, I mean, we will, for sure. But no, we’ve we’ve some art gallery specializing in Nifty will organize some NFT events with other other, although and if so, for sure. If you if you’re not only be focused on the yachting thing, even if you don’t like it, don’t even interested. Don’t like the nautical vibes yachting vibe. There will be some,
00:16:24:19 – 00:16:30:28
some very nice side events linked linked with the NFT space where you will be able to
00:16:32:13 – 00:17:04:02
Richard Carthon: simply not. You would be able to talk about NFT space in general and meet new people not only from from a community, but from also community we’re going to partner with. And this is, yeah, definitely a way for people that are not very interested in your team to, um, to get some time to get to get some nice vibes from her, from this, from this NFT, we’re going to we’re going to need invasive.
00:17:05:14 – 00:17:18:29
Richard Carthon: Oh, that’s cool. Um, something else that I’m pretty curious about. So you have a really cool road map mapped out. You have some plans on how you’re going to keep expanding, but kind of like just taking a step back from
00:17:20:21 – 00:17:59:24
Richard Carthon: what you’ve been able to create within the crypto community. Where do you see the future of being able to bring experiences like you’ve had from being on yachts and everything and trying to create, like, bring that to crypto? How do you see that continuing those types of experiences continue to be brought in to both what’s called NFTs metaverse in different areas like that? Do you feel like this? Do you feel like we’re still super early? Do you feel like people who are listening to this? This is the right time to be getting in, or should they wait a little longer? Like, what’s what’s your overall opinion on the timing of all of this?
00:18:01:05 – 00:18:33:15
Richard Carthon: Yeah, overall, overall, first is to assess if you want, for example, to lunch for lunch and took a nice community or no like soccer or in the in badminton or, you know, the football. Yeah, football for the both of us is a situation as a situation. Be 100 percent sure that you’re passionate about that and you’re going to spend up. You get and you’re willing to spend the entire life on this project because we are kind of early in the evenings.
00:18:33:28 – 00:18:59:24
Richard Carthon: Right now, it’s moving everywhere, like like some, some some some connection, though worth billions of dollars a year. We should take a step back. Understand the following you should understand the passion we have. It’s just we have to make sure we will be able to to walk on this community for for the very long term. That’s my first advice.
00:19:01:15 – 00:19:13:28
Richard Carthon: And yeah, in terms of timing, we are very early. So even if you see all this footage going on like this age as a crypto, those crypto, I don’t know crypto, you can think.
00:19:16:08 – 00:19:47:21
Richard Carthon: Take a step back and think and think that simply what you’re good at. And yeah, we severely we severely lecture. In my opinion, even if you have an insurance extension of either party, not in 2022, but in 2004, when you’re free, a human interest, take a step back of those markets, then the sense that a demand for the passion you have in your industry and you are with the right people next to you is the right solution to you. So it would be for sure in and your program for you to succeed.
00:19:49:21 – 00:19:57:20
Richard Carthon: If there is a demand, there’s a patient, there’s a skill. The match is effectual to full integration. That’s my that’s my view.
00:19:59:02 – 00:20:25:27
Richard Carthon: Sure, and we appreciate you sharing that view with us and, you know, as we kind of wrap up here, man, I always like to finish up with two fun questions. The first being with all the information that you have right now after the seven months of building in everything you did to be ready to launch crypto on set crypto yachts and to have everything you have going if you impart one or two pieces of wisdom to yourself. When you first got started, what would you tell yourself?
00:20:29:00 – 00:20:48:06
Richard Carthon: Uh, just just say same as as my previous instances, like if I if they did me or if I had been me like something seven months ago, eight months ago when I was doing my own research, just assess where you’re good at.
00:20:50:09 – 00:20:51:08
Richard Carthon: Just think about
00:20:52:27 – 00:21:26:04
Richard Carthon: what will be the best for for you, for you, as a as a good actor, what would be the best yachting collection for you as a collector? So in my, I would just say, I just take your time, take your time. You have to be sure. And you have the skills that you take your time. Just take a step back. Don’t don’t look around. Figure, step back. Look at look at simply what you could implement in your new collection and take your time.
00:21:26:10 – 00:21:44:12
Richard Carthon: Walk Walker on a daily basis. Be consistent and forwards. End, you know he’s going to make it. But don’t. Don’t go. Don’t go. Don’t be stressed. Take your time. They’ll be in a hurry. Because when you’re in a hurry, when you when you hurry, you don’t. You don’t go very far and
00:21:46:02 – 00:22:10:25
Richard Carthon: you can. Financial year or so, it’s not it’s not good to take a very fast decision, so take your time. Stay focused and keep the vision because yeah, sure. If, if, if you know you can, you can give a bad experience if you issue the issue gets you to hurry for for you based on the also.
00:22:12:20 – 00:22:13:09
Richard Carthon: Thank you for that.
00:22:15:02 – 00:22:21:21
Richard Carthon: So be patient. Take your time, don’t rush and just be consistent, be consistent, be persistent.
00:22:21:23 – 00:22:27:07
Richard Carthon: Be an issue that needs to be patient at angry debate you need.
00:22:29:19 – 00:22:52:17
Richard Carthon: For sure, there is a demand is there is a demand that you’re not you’re on the you want to attract you in your team’s. There is a demand that you create the best, the best, the best opportunity possible. Think about the best remote possible agenda you will you will make it again. You would make it the patient and patient it in the locker room.
00:22:52:19 – 00:23:02:29
Richard Carthon: Bring the passion and you have to hear from the captain. Make sure you got that passion there while you’re working on all this stuff. Man, what is the force as we kind of wrap up here? What is a final thought that you want to leave with all the listeners today?
00:23:06:15 – 00:23:13:17
Richard Carthon: So I don’t want to talk again about my my crypto or to my crypto project, my first tokenized yacht club,
00:23:15:16 – 00:23:18:17
Richard Carthon: because we things to reach out other women to talk about it
00:23:21:06 – 00:23:21:21
Richard Carthon: greatly.
00:23:23:16 – 00:23:42:18
Richard Carthon: Just guy, just don’t don’t go right now. We’re very early. We don’t have enough stake back around the market. Don’t go deep into a project directly. Do your own research about the funders. Do your own research about what this metaverse means. Is it going to be
00:23:44:10 – 00:24:14:24
Richard Carthon: added to the the there’s a roadmap and yeah, make sure. Make sure your your you will. You like the artwork you like huge unity and you you trust this this windows, because right now is the crypto space is not well regulated. And even if some people say, Yeah, you’re going to buy, you’re going to gives you a Lamborghini, you’re going to be going to I’m going to go to the moon together overnight or you can get around.
00:24:14:26 – 00:24:38:03
Richard Carthon: So if it’s your first, if this is the first and if you’re going to buy or even as a signal to facilitate your time because there’s so much going on and do your own research, that’s very important. Um, yeah, that’s that will be my last word. And yeah, thank you. That was that was like amazing. Uh, really appreciate
00:24:39:26 – 00:25:01:14
Richard Carthon: the value you your ring, Rochelle to the space. It’s kind of difficult to get some, some in touch with a very valuable podcast and your question. The amazing, amazing for me. Also for all the people that are that are looking for fun, nice, nice. Nice advice,
00:25:03:06 – 00:25:04:27
Richard Carthon: Holly. Nice early advice.
00:25:06:05 – 00:25:28:03
Richard Carthon: Sure. Well, captain, that was a great final thought. Everyone listening go back and listen to that again because he had some really good things to remember in there, especially around doing your own research. Don’t just jump into something and potentially get rug pulls. Those aren’t fun. And there’s a lot of opportunity out here. So what are ways that people can learn more about you and learn more about crypto yachts?
00:25:29:25 – 00:25:30:11
Richard Carthon: So.
00:25:32:00 – 00:26:01:03
Richard Carthon: I am 100 percent transparent. So right now, we are still very pleased there’s only 1500 people, so I can see the tops on message on show directly to two of my coaches, my community. So if you want to get to know more about the project, just go deep into the website. Crypto yachts, those odds joined like reasons are now free to read the words. The team
00:26:02:24 – 00:26:08:08
Richard Carthon: then joins the squad of integration. Even on Twitter is a new message. We will be glad to
00:26:10:01 – 00:26:42:24
Richard Carthon: onshore this this and get to know about about about yourself also. Yeah, I’m 100 percent transparent. So what I share on my mailing, on the on my LinkedIn profile, on the on the on the discord. Everyone know, knows me, knows that I am here for the for the long run, the long shot. And yeah, I don’t. It was any question, even if it was a project. Try to get to know more about this people or to talk to them, interact with them.
00:26:43:02 – 00:26:58:06
Richard Carthon: I think, Gemma, we’ve been organized. For example, we organized a 2000 2000 members. So yeah, then this I don’t do this regularly before, before. This is important and.
00:27:00:00 – 00:27:14:10
Richard Carthon: You are 100 percent sure that the results of both project just just yeah. But why not put your money on that? And in the state, the holdings holding all these are all run because that’s the most important thing.
00:27:15:29 – 00:27:24:25
Richard Carthon: For sure. Well, again, and thanks again for sharing all that information, everyone makes sure you go check out crypto yachts and everyone listening. Stay cryptocurrency.
