#Solana #Korea #Crypto

6月8日,Solana Labs游戏总经理Johnny Lee称,Solana Ventures和Solana Foundation已经设立1亿美元的投资和赠款基金,向韩国Web3初创公司提供资金,并将专注于投资韩国的游戏工作室、GameFi、NFT和DeFi项目

Solana是什么?Solana 创立于2017年,是一个总部位于瑞士日内瓦的DeFi(去中心化金融)区块链项目。技术团队致力于将Solana打造为一条根据摩尔定律扩容、为大规模应用提供高性能和低费用的公链,凭借着新的运作机制,解决了比特币和以太坊区块链中存在的传统吞吐量限制的问题,因此被称为“以太坊杀手”,也因其可扩展性,被业界称为“加密货币界的VISA”

这么多国家,为什么偏偏是韩国?亚洲国家为数不多的加密货币主要市场中,韩国用户尤其活跃,更是一度包揽了全球三分之一的加密货币交易量,让世界各国望尘莫及,与其他的用户对比,韩国的虚拟货币投资者更愿意以更高的价格购入加密货币,在业界被戏称为“泡菜溢价”。而韩国用户之所以如此迷恋加密货币,主要有政治、社会和经济因素。

韩国人为什么喜欢加密货币?南北韩问题争论不休,邻国频密的各种核试验和军事威胁在韩国人民的生活当中埋下隐患,而比特币的无国界性恰好能给予韩国人民面对随时爆发战争的一丝安全感。在韩国的新生代中,投资加密货币也成为一种高等教育分子用以抬高身价,区分自身和普通同龄人的手段。

而Solana选择投资韩国,除了韩国人民对加密货币的需求和黏性高于其他亚洲国家之外,同时也是因为韩国国内游戏产链、电子移动支付和互联网系统相较于其他国家更成熟。Solana Labs的游戏总经理Johnny Lee表示,他们发现大部分的韩国的游戏产业已经自主转向发展web3,是亚洲不可多得的加web3沃土。在韩国,他们能找到更灵活变化和种类不同的初创团队,并且有望能够在不久的将来将web3游戏普及化。
