“Nix has access to the Korean and Chinese markets. Our technology is mature and has proven commercials. It will be good if we can capture the European market through Gaimin.io. We have connected our technology departments together this afternoon and this starts our intention to collaborate.” James remarked.
“A big thank you for the roundtable table organized by Blockcast.cc. We had really good discussions on how to work together with Nix Mobba. We have also managed to meet many other friends in Korea who are gaming centric and fully understand the vision of how our platform will change the gaming market. My team were delighted to hear this news and are already working hard to create a formal MOU with James.” Clive said. “Our third IEO with Biconomy gives us even more confidence and a wider reach of target audiences. This latest IEO work gave us the opportunity to return to Korea and meet partners like Nix to further our journey.”
“I flew in specially for this roundtable event and it was worth the effort. I have met numerous gamers over this series organized by Blockcast.cc and many of them want to see what blockchain can do for the gaming industry. I also managed to get a glimpse of the Gaimin.io mining plugin on Clive’s laptop and it looks great! Now, we are looking forward to the public download for the mining plugin.” Anndy Lian, Member of Gyeongsangbuk-do Blockchain Special Committee, Government of the Republic of Korea commented.
