We wanted to change everything—even when we were kids.
Hi there. I’m Remy, and my co–founder is Louis. We met in middle school when we were just 11–years-old. At 13 years old, we started playing a video game named Dofus and ended up selling virtual money for actual money and made a few thousand dollars before our parents shut down the entire operation. We’ve been friends ever since.
A few years ago, we witnessed the ascent of blockchain. Louis was coding predictive market algorithms, and I was working in alternative investments at BlackRock, so we quickly understood the opportunity. We convinced some local banks to invest in us, and we turned around and invested it all. As you can imagine, it paid off in ways we would never imagine. This gave us a very unique perspective on the world – and more importantly – realizing that there were so many real problems that we now wanted to solve.
One that stood out to us, being that we had been working with computers our entire childhood, was how to interact with computers more efficiently. It’s a slow process. We started working on ideas on how to solve this. And thus, Metabrain was born.
