EMURGO, the commercial and venture arm of the Cardano project, had a very productive month to start 2019. EMURGO participated in two major international blockchain conferences: Binance Conference in Singapore and Japan Blockchain Conference in Japan. Meanwhile, EMURGO made a major announcement regarding a strategic investment into leading digital merchant bank Y2X as the anchor investor. Y2X is the leading digitally-friendly merchant and investment bank, helping entrepreneurs raise capital for expansion through Securities Token Offerings and other means. Cardano will become the protocol of choice for Y2X and its portfolio firms, especially in the field of regulated STOs, therefore providing an increased value add to ADA holders.
We were also thrilled to receive fantastic feedback from our community about the Cardano ecosystem, our recently released Yoroi Wallet, and our new EMURGO rebranding efforts.
Over time, we’ve been getting more and more questions from the community asking us, “How can I get hired by EMURGO? How can I contribute to the development of Cardano? What is EMURGO’s company culture?”. In our latest YouTube video, Florian Bohnert – EMURGO’s Chief Marketing Officer shares his thoughts on EMURGO’s hiring culture with viewers. Check out the video below:
In this 5-minute video, Florian takes everyone through a part of EMURGO’s new, hip and modern office located in the Akasaka business district in the heart of Tokyo. He shows off our cool event area where future meetups and networking events for the blockchain community (more specifically the Cardano community) will be hosted.
