We had the good fortune of connecting with Sidney Salvodon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sidney, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Love this question! So, a lot of what we do at Everyday Rooms intersects with the NFT industry. The industry is growing rapidly. It’s becoming more and more main stream every single day. Worldwide adaption is strengthening and the year-over-year sales numbers speak for themselves.
Many people have began learning about NFTs over the years, but I don’t think people are truly aware of the industry growth that has occurred in just the past few years.
In 2019, NFT sales volume was $8.6 Million, in 2020 85.7 Million, in 2021 19.6 Billion.. with a B, and in the first 10 days of 2022 sales volume was over $2+ Billion which is bananas. Needless to say, I’m very excited for what the next decade has in store.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Yes, I’d love to!
Everyday Rooms (everydayrooms.com) is where artists and influential brands come to amplify their NFT launches through gamified event experiences. It took us a few pivots to land where we are today, but since the very beginning we knew we wanted to focus on events and experiential activations.
The NFT space is growing rapidly, and by way of skillset & background we decided to center our attention on serving members of the music and entertainment industry.
One thing that makes Everyday Rooms unique is that we are apart of the 1412 Group (1412group.com), which is a holding company and ecosystem of brands created for social impact in the country of Haiti. For us, this means 33 cents of every dollar we generate in revenue is allocated towards the Greater Haiti Project (greaterhaiti.org).
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
One of the first places that come to mind is Joey DTLA. The 2022 new year has just started and I have already brought two people there this month, and we are only in January. My favorite item to order on the menu is their Korean Fried Cauliflower. My absolute favorite!
When it comes to beautiful sights and peaceful views, you will generally find me in Long Beach. I enjoy the pier, the restaurants, and the lovely beaches. We always have a good time in LB!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
If there was one person that I could shoutout this person would be my Mother, Sciama Francois. After God, my Mom is the only person who has been there for me since day 1, literally. As a single-mother, she did every single thing in her power to make sure I had everything I needed as a growing young Black man in America. Whether it be my personal journey or my career, my Mom will forever be one of my top mentors and supporters in life.
