Tell us about yourself and what makes you stand out as a business owner
My name is Nando Caporicci and I am the owner
of Olitris Technologies.
We focus entirely on bitcoin and have found major success within this niche
industry. I am someone who firmly believes in giving back to society in
whatever way I can. I believe that philanthropic work is something that all
CEO’s should invest their time into. It is our responsibility to make positive
strides in our society for the next generation. This is where I spend most of
my time outside of my normal business hours.
Can you tell us what it was like starting your own business in the blockchain world?
When I first started the market was relatively small. People had not yet bought
into the idea of blockchain just yet. However, this meant that the market was
not yet excavated and perfect to get into at the time. Unfortunately, once
people started finding gold more people would rush to find it too. Starting
Olitris Technologies was relatively easy considering that I did it at the
opportune moment. We have seen nothing but exponential growth since then.
What does your morning routine normally look like?
I’m hard-wired into electronic devices all day. I choose not to check any emails or text messages first thing in the morning because of this. I spend my time slowly waking up and allowing my mind to get a grip on things. I don’t like to rush myself in the morning as it can cause problems down the line. Once I have woken up, I like to spend some time meditating. It is important that I have clarity in my thoughts throughout the day. This helps me stay focused whenever I am working on incredibly important tasks.
On top of your business responsibilities, you are also a father. Can you tell us what that has been like at home?
You definitely lose a lot more sleep than you anticipate whenever you become a father. We recently had a child and our world has been turned upside down. Everything that we do in our business and personal lives is for our children. We want to ensure that the best possible future is laid out for them. We have been reading dozens of parenting books, and we still feel as if we have a long way to go before we understand how to raise a child. However, I will say that it is an incredibly humbling experience to spend time with someone that you created each day.
What do you expect will happen in the future regarding cryptocurrency?
The sky is the limit. People are oftentimes skeptical of a new concept whenever it hits the market. Bitcoin became available over 10 years ago and we are just now witnessing a mainstream transition. It takes a lot of time before people will consider investing their resources into a new idea. However, the numbers don’t lie. We have seen exponential growth over these 10 years regarding bitcoin. I would predict that we will see more mainstream acceptance over the next 5 years.
Do you have any advice for upcoming blockchain business owners looking to make a stake in the cryptocurrency business?
I would recommend that you do as much research as possible. Jumping in head first without knowing what your target goals are is financial suicide. The market isn’t what it was like 10 years ago when I first started. Make sure that you have all your ducks lined up in a row before you start your business. You will know whenever the time is right.
Do you have any advice for your younger self?
I would’ve told my younger self to branch out and meet more people sooner. Never turn down a chance to meet new people. You never know what you can learn from that interaction. It is crucial that you are constantly meeting new people in and outside of your industry. I was more reserved when I was younger than I am now. I would struggle to find the right topics to talk about whenever I was first starting out in the world of business. However, I would soon learn that just being yourself is good enough.
Does Nando Caporicci have any motivational words for cryptocurrency users and business owners alike?
Patience is the most important thing when it comes to cryptocurrency. The market will adapt to this currency over time and we will see more accessibility integrated into this type of currency.
