CHILIZ STRENGTHENS KOREAN OPERATIONS

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Hyunmin Han as Managing Director for Chiliz in South Korea with direct responsibility for business development within the country. 

No stranger to the crypto and blockchain industries, Brian was previously part of KryptoSeoul and helped strategy and business development at KryptoSeoul.

As part of the team within Klaytn of Ground X, the blockchain subsidiary of Kakao, Brian also developed international partnerships, focusing primarily on Asia.

On his appointment Brian said “Korea is a very exciting market for a lot of reasons and is one of the most important markets for Chiliz. First of all, Korea is the most heavily connected society in the world with some 96% of adults using the internet. In addition, around 30% of the entire workforce own and exchange cryptocurrencies in Korea, which makes the country one of the most crypto-friendly populations in the world. Lastly, 48% of the entire Korean population resides in Seoul, which significantly increases the potential for mass adoption in this region. With the fast growing sports, esports, and entertainment industries in Korea, I am very excited to be part of this journey with Chiliz.”

 

 

Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO Chiliz, said “Without a doubt, Korea is a major force within the blockchain sphere. I, myself, have visited the country many times over the past year, and have developed strong ties. I’m excited to welcome Brian to the Chiliz team. Having lived and breathed the Korean crypto world for many years, he understands the region and the work that needs to be done to build the Chiliz brand.

Notes to editor: 

Chiliz ($CHZ) is a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms. It fuels the world’s first scalable, tokenized voting & rewards platform, Socios.com, where fans can buy, trade and execute voting rights in their favorite sports teams. The Chiliz project has raised $66 million from some of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges and leading crypto funds in Asia, including Binance, OK Blockchain Capital and Ceyuan Ventures. Chiliz is owned by Malta-based Mediarex Group, a global sports and entertainment organisation, which was founded in 2012.

Socios.com helps football clubs achieve digital transformation through blockchain technology. Socios.com is powered by the Chiliz token ($CHZ), both an ERC20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain and BEP-2 token on Binance Chain. Fan Tokens are specific to a team or a club, and are a finite, digital asset that provides access to an encrypted, immutable ledger of voting and membership rights ownership. The tokenized fan-voting platform uses Fan Tokens, which operate on a separate permissioned side chain. The Fan Tokens are limited in number, and are fungible, meaning their ownership can be traded, and their price is driven by the market. The venture was inspired by the fan-led management frameworks or ‘socios’ of some major football clubs. Dubbed ‘Socios 2.0’, the platform simply represents the digitisation of this model of management.
