KSM Starter Advisor Highlight: Dominic Zhu
Kusama’s primary launchpad, KSM Starter is proud to announce that Dominic Zhu has joined the ranks of its advisory team.
Having only launched his venture capital firm, Lupa X Capital, a mere six months ago, Dominic is a rising star in crypto land and already has the makings of a seasoned player. Of the over thirty projects he has worked with, Dominic is best known for his partnership and role at CardStarter, and for having incubated and advised several of their IDO launches. He also advises several other launchpads, namely Vent, TrustPad, and NFTpad, and is soon to launch his own.
Dominic’s expertise is going to be of immense benefit to KSM Starter; and perhaps even more important, through his industry connections, KSM Starter will get to enjoy dual IDOs with other leading launchpads. As great as this is, it really is just a start, as Dominic’s network is expansive, and far outstretches the blockchain space, to include leading institutions in media and finance.
Speaking on Dominic’s credibility, Co-founder of PhotoChromic.io, Murray Legg said: “We’d not be in the position we are lucky to find ourselves in if it weren’t for Dom’s involvement. He’s fast tracked our conversations and conversions on a number of fronts because of the respect he’s earned from his network in the space.”
Chris Chiras, COO at Gero Wallet, has added to Dominic’s expertise and said: “It is a big pleasure working with Dom, he is very knowledgeable, professional and reliable. He is insightful and very good at making connections with other people and projects. Highly recommended.”
Naturally, KSM Starter is absolutely exhilarated to have landed Dominic as an advisor; thankfully, the feeling is mutual. On joining the team, Dominic said: “As someone who has made launchpads their speciality, I have never come across one so methodically structured as the one Siwon and his team have built. The guys are pros, and have created something that will really level up the industry. Investors are gonna be glad to be a part of it.”
About KSM Starter
KSM Starter, the primary launchpad on Kusama, is built to provide early-stage support and public funding for projects building on Substrate. KSM Starter’s incubator modeled launchpad is driven by the community and shared values of fairness, transparency, and decentralized organization. Unique to the KST ecosystem, community members are incentivized to participate in the pre IDO selection process through higher allocation rewards. Also unique to KSM Starter, collaboration is fostered among launched projects by incentivizing community members to support previous launches by awarding them with improved lottery odds. This along with the KST Ecosystem Council generates a synergistic network effect that empowers all projects to succeed and leave a lasting impact on Kusama.
