Kakao Ventures has recruited Lim Hyung-chul, CEO of Blocore, as a “value-up partner” in the Web 3 category.

According to an industry on the 6th, Kakao Ventures is operating a value-up partnership, an investment growth support program involving experts in games, blockchain, growth hacking, and organizational management.

Through this recruitment, CEO Lim became a partner in the Web 3 category of the value-up partnership program. Web3 is a generic term for decentralized next-generation Internet technology, including blockchain-based distributed platforms, irreplaceable tokens (NFT), and metaverse.
