Hello, Unopnd community! Here is a monthly recap for October.
Hope you guys had an amazing October. The chills of winter are about to come but the cold doesn’t bother us. We had another busy month, heating up for each projects.
We give you this month’s updates on our company and projects. Let’s dive in right away!
This month, Unopnd members participated in two major blockchain IRL events in South Korea: Seoul Meta Week 2022 and Blockchain Week Busan 2022.
Seoul Meta Week 2022
Seoul Meta Week 2022 was held in Seoul on October 4 to 6 and featured two main conferences — Blockchain Open Forum and Metacon x NFT Seoul 2022. It was one of the biggest NFT x Metaverse events in Asia bringing various leading international companies and speakers together to share their opinions and create networks.
Unopnd Marketing Director, Nathan Kim joined a panel discussion in Blockchain Open Forum, and Unopnd COO, GD Kim presented about our projects in Metacon.
Nathan Kim joined in a panel discussion “The Accelerating and Ecosystem of Blockchain” with Trevor Owens of Stacks Foundation, Heston Cho of Krust, Bill Byeon of Encoding Labs. He explained how, as an accelerator, it is important to improve the accessibility and usability of Web 3 for the users.
Also, he added Unopnd believes that the Web 3 gaming sector has huge potential when it successfully onboard Web 2 gamers around the world. This is why we have to focus on long-term goals rather than trying to create an ecosystem in a rush. In a bear market, the activeness of Web 3 community users tend to decrease. Therefore, projects need to have convenient and easy-to-use features that will onboard web 2 gamers.
GD Kim introduced projects that Unopnd is currently incubating — Derby Stars, XOCIEY, and Modhaus — and shared how we are building these projects in this bear market.
BWB 2022, was hosted by Busan Metropolitan City at BEXCO on Oct 27 ~ 29, sponsored by Binance, FTX and Huobi. With the theme of “Blockchain, City and Life”, BWB 2022 featured conferences for the advancement of the blockchain industry and provided a space to obtain insight as well as to share information.
At the main conference hall, Web 3 companies in Korea opened a booth to promote their product and get connected with new partners. Chainlink, DWF labs, Avalanche, BNB and Coinness hosted side events for various builders to learn, discuss and network.
Nathan Kim, Marketing Director of UNOPND held a session at Bexco Future Hall on the last day of the conference, Oct. 29, and shared insight about how the community shows potential in the Web 3 game ecosystem.
He emphasized the importance of community members and leadership of the team as these are the main factors that can lead to massive growth of the Web 3 game market. In a sound Web 3 gaming ecosystem, communities create content, educate newbies and help the project spontaneously. Eventually, they will grow socially and financially making the community stronger.
