We are excited to support Ethernity in defining the future of digital collectibles,” said Jehan Chu, Managing Partner, Kenetic.
“Having Jehan on board is a big win for the Ethernity Community and the NFT arena as a whole. His expertise and NFT initiatives have inspired us so far and we’re very optimistic about the vision he brings moving forward. We’ve been working in parallel in the blockchain space for nearly a decade now – it’s about time we work more closely. NFTs are the catalyst that drew both our attention and ultimately brought us together.” Nick Rose, Founder, Ethernity Chain. ” Nick Rose, Founder, Ethernity Chain
