Rahul Sood Returns And Builds His Own Metaverse With Irreverent Labs


One of the most innovative individuals in the esports industry, Rahul Sood, has made a return to gaming after he became the driving force behind a new start-up business called Irreverent Labs.

Mr Sood, who is best known perhaps for his work with Microsoft Ventures and latterly Unikrn, the crypto-based esports betting site that has recently been taken over and which is set to return at some point next year, has a long history with gaming.

He was the founder of VoodooPC, a maker of custom PC’s designed for gamers that he sold to Hewlett Packard in 2006 and became HPs lead designer for gaming computers until 2010.

It is little wonder then that Mr Sood has returned to his gaming roots, albeit allied with emerging Blockchain technology for his new venture.

What is Irreverent Labs?

According to the lead in paragraph on their website, Irreverent Labs say:

“We’re reinventing how games are played, owned and watched by merging advanced machine learning, engrossing gameplay and blockchain technology. We’re building hundred-year games, designed to grow across decades of breathtaking depth and fun.”

Mr Sood’s new company will attempt to merge gaming technology with the power of Non-Fungible Tokens, which can use the blockchain to authenticate digitised items.

Part of the company’s working brief is to develop a game that people can pick up easily to play on the blockchain and which will still be around in a century’s time.
