Daniel Eom, who is recently receiving much attention and expectation, introduced Foresting. Forresting is a business model that can generate primary revenue by content itself, unlike the existing SNSs that have to rely solely on advertising revenue. It is said to have secured a competitive edge by complementing the shortcomings of SteamIT, which is called the first-generation block-chain platform.
“Foresting is a blockchain-based SNS platform that will open up a new world. It will make content more easily and faster than the existing SNS, and will increase the efficiency and influence of content providers to produce better contents.” With the help of blockchain technology and new social media we will create a new ecosystem through the operation of tokens. “

In order to have a healthy and clean mind, your body must be healthy first. If you walk in a fitness band, you can get a CyClean Coin depending on the number of steps, exercise bike, I hope that the “CyClean Movement” will spread to all over the world.”
