Blockchain-powered social platform Olyseum has announced the addition of Jehan Chu to its Advisory Board.

Founded by Carlos Grenoir and Kevin Mitnick, Olyseum is a blockchain-powered social ecosystem that rewards fan engagement and collaboration, streamlining the connection between fans and stars through the use of Non-fungible Tokens (NFT). Olyseum’s purpose-built rewards ecosystem enables fans to engage with entertainment leaders, sports stars, fashion icons and global trailblazers. Already, Olyseum has brought 40 stars to its platform with hundreds of millions of combined social media followers. Olyseum’s expansive roster of stars — which is being unveiled periodically — is cross-vertical, and includes several motoGP icons, top fashion models, 5-star Michelin super-chefs, music legends and renowned YouTube personalities.

Chu is Founder and Managing Partner of Kenetic Capital — the Hong Kong based early-stage blockchain investment and trading firm — and Co-founder of Social Alpha Foundation, the charity broadening the accessibility of blockchain education and empowering communities to leverage Blockchain for social good.

Chu has earned his credentials as one of the world’s preeminent blockchain and crypto investors and thought leaders, emerging as an industry evangelist in 2013. He is the founder of the Ethereum HK meetup, co-Founder of the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong, a Kauffman Fellow, and in 2018 co-founded Nifty, the world’s first global NFT conference.

According to Olyseum, Chu will provide key strategic guidance on crypto markets with a particular focus on Olyseum’s NFT initiatives and ongoing Asian market expansion.

“Jehan’s unrivalled experience within the industry and strategic acumen will be invaluable as we establish a market leading position with regards to the NFT revolution,” said Olyseum CEO and Co-founder Carlos Grenoir. “Jehan firmly believes in our overarching mission and the methodology we are executing as part of our long term roadmap, and represents a signature addition to our Advisory Board.”

“Kenetic has been investing in and supporting Olyseum and Carlos for over 2 years, and believe they are one of the most important social token and NFT platforms in crypto,” Chu said. “With their unparalleled network and credibility among top athletes and celebrities, they are bridging the crypto world with the mainstream influencer world. I am proud to join the Advisory Board of Olyseum to support them on this next chapter of their mission.”
