A Few Highlights From The Interview Eric Pulier Completed With Ideamensch

 

The first question given to Eric Pulier was where he got the idea to create his latest venture called vAtomic Systems. Eric Pulier said that the inspiration for him creating vAtomic Systems was the opportunity he saw in digital games and digital goods with the advent of disruptive technology. Pulier said that there is a big opportunity now in this area thanks to new technology such as mobile GPS and blockchain technology. The increasing popularity of digital goods trading and improved game mechanics further inspired him to launch this new venture.

Getting a good night’s rest the day beforehand is also important to Pulier. After scrambling to get his four young kids ready for school, Pulier says he then tries to focus all his energy and time to the tasks he needs to complete.
