This was the first in the FA Cup history for a Korean ad banner to pop up in the stadium. GLOSFER had also displayed its HYCON banner during the Premier League 2017/18 match held on March 11. This Korean banner accomplished its role by capturing audiences’ attention. GLOSFER made the payment with their own cryptocurrency called HYCON through airdrop.

HYCON, GLOSFER-owned cryptocurrency, displayed its own on-board advertisement in British Premier League fields.

GLOSFER considers this event a meaningful experience for them, as they made the full payment with their own cryptocurrency called HYCON through airdrop, instead of using the normal currency. They also added, “Within the period of such heated competition among global cryptocurrencies, we believe we seized the right opportunity to show the world our advanced technology as well as the brand itself. The world is paying close attention to HYCON now.”

Here is a potential murderer. But he has business potential and will be able to earn a lot of money for us in the future. What should we do? Should we imprison him to prevent him from going on a killing spree or should we let him make a fortune for us at the expense of several lives?

This is an analogy that Glosfer founder and CEO Kim Tae-won came up with regarding blockchain, the base technology for digital currencies such as bitcoin. He regards blockchain as a future growth engine but worries about its negative short-term impact, which is something like gambling.

“If I am in charge, I would put the potential murderer in jail. We have no choice but to do so at a time when transactions of cryptocurrencies go like gambling here. Ethics should come first before business,” said Kim who established the blockchain company in 2015.

“While last year was the year of Bitcoin, this year would be the year of the blockchain. Blockchain technologies will be applied in our daily life and will greatly affect our life.”

Kim said, “Bitcoin has played an important role in increasing interest in the blockchain. Only when blockchain technologies are used in and have an impact on real life, can they be applied to all industries. That means blockchain technologies can contribute to forming a fairer and juster society.”
