Janice gave an introduction to the Metaverse blockchain’s features and technology, touching on the three pillars of digital identity, digital assets and Oracle value intermediaries. Janice also provided community updates including Metaverse’s recent partnerships with Aion, Maverick Chain and the DraperDragon fund.
We were pleasantly surprised by the warmth and enthusiasm of the Korean community and their knowledge about the blockchain industry. The meetup, together with the team’s experiences this trip, confirmed the importance of the South Korean market for Metaverse. We will definitely be investing more effort into expanding our presence in South Korea moving forward, and encourage our Korean-speaking community members to participate actively in our Discord and bounty program.
Apart from the meetup, Metaverse was invited to participate in the Inside Fintech Conference & Expo held at Kintex from Nov 30 — Dec 1, the largest blockchain technology focused event worldwide. Heavily focused on Fintech 3.0, the blockchain’s impact on the global financial ecosystem and decentralized solutions for financial processes, the conference provided many fruitful opportunities to meet with potential partners and collaborators. We were very impressed by the quality and turnout of the conference — to us, it is a strong indicator of the gaps in the market that blockchain technology has the potential to fulfil and gives us even more reason to pursue growth in South Korea.
