Both the ecosystem and the community of any project play a pivotal role in its success. At Salad Ventures, the team believes in the ethos of ‘collaborate and not compete’, so working with the right partners can make a huge difference.
Through the official announcement of our partnership with OKC (OKX Chain), we are extremely thrilled to share that the OKX Chain (OKC) joined us as a co-host of Salad Tuesdays, one of Web3’s hallmark networking events.
A Curated Ecosystem
In the latest edition of Salad Spotlight, we caught up with Nicholas Soong, Director of OKX Chain Ecosystem, Asia Pacific, to learn more about OKX Chain’s recipe for success. Nicholas emphasized the importance of building a curated ecosystem of partners and infrastructure that can drive growth and innovation.
Salad Ventures is just one of the many partners that have contributed to OKX Chain’s ecosystem. This is further fueled by OKX’s partnerships with Formula 1 team McLaren and Premier League giants Manchester City, which has helped build an impressive roster of top-tier partners. This network of collaborators, according to Nicholas, is essential to their goal of creating a top-tier product in a leading ecosystem.
As part of this effort, OKX Chain is constantly on the lookout for promising projects, developers, and VCs to bring them all into their ecosystem as they form the foundation for the ecosystem to grow. By continuing to cultivate a strong ecosystem of partners and products, OKX Chain is well-positioned to remain a leader in the Web3 space.
“We are constantly looking to work hand-in-hand with promising projects entering our ecosystem to help accelerate their growth through the various resources that we provide.”
Propelling Forward Together
Nicholas added on that Salad Tuesdays stood out for having a specific audience that was easy to engage through meaningful interactions within the Web3 domain. Salad Tuesdays consistently drew people who were already familiar with the business, in contrast to other networking events that frequently focused on integrating professionals who were not natural Web3 users into the field.
By partnering with a well-respected mainstay event in the Web3 community, OKX Chain was able to continue building strong relationships with like-minded professionals while also showcasing their commitment to the industry.
“Salad Tuesday’s audience is pretty different compared to other events. Most people are still new to Web3 and that’s the crowd you kind of get at most events. At Salad Tuesdays, the crowd is much more targeted, and it’s easier to get useful insights during these networking sessions.”
Nicholas predicts that the next big thing in the industry is likely to be SocialFi. He believes that SocialFi will revolutionize the way individuals and businesses connect and collaborate in the Web3 space. Whether it’s forming new partnerships or networking with like-minded professionals, SocialFi has the potential to take the industry by storm.
With OKX Chain as a strong partner in their ecosystem, Salad Ventures is well-positioned to take advantage of this exciting new technology and continue writing new narratives in Web3.
For our next guest, Nicholas wants to find out:
“What do you reckon will be the next big narrative in the Web3 space?””
Salad Ventures is extremely excited to partner with OKX Chain through our community events, but this is just the beginning. Stay tuned for more updates on what the team will be working on together with this brand-new collaboration between both projects.
We are excited for what’s coming, so be sure not to miss out on the next event by connecting with us:
