Get Gold Rich Fast
Speaker: Brian Shuster, Utherverse CEO
One of the pioneers of the internet, Mr. Shuster is the inventor of dozens of issued and pending internet technology patents. He created one of the first and most successful free web hosting companies in history, Webjump.com, which he sold to TheGlobe.com in 1999. After creating several other highly successful internet ventures, Mr. Shuster founded Utherverse, Inc. in 2003 to develop a network of interconnected virtual worlds using a common platform. By 2006 the company was expanded to Canada where Shuster continued to innovate in the virtual world space, culminating in the release of the “Virtual World Web” in the fall of 2009. The VWW now boasts more than 60,000 user generated Virtual Worlds operating on a uniform platform and the world’s first 3D Internet browser. Shuster’s pioneering spirit continues as he continues to develop new use cases for the technology.
Mr. Shuster started playing MMOs many years ago, starting with Asheron’s Call. He developed a character using add on software that he helped develop, which led to the creation of TradeBot, and within months his character owned 50% of the wealth of the entire user base.
Mr. Shuster started playing WoW a few years ago and using similar strategies he was able to crack the WoW economy. By using only the proper rules of the game; no gimmicks, NO FARMING and he can teach any player how to make endless Gold.
