Paul Kim, CEO of Notifi: $12 Million raised to Build the Future of Web3 Communication Infrastructure
In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Paul Kim, CEO of Notifi, a Web3 communication infrastructure platform that’s raised over $12 Million in funding, about why mass adoption of this new phase in internet evolution is a phenomenal opportunity for startups, and how Notifi plans to be a central component of this worldwide phenomenon. By providing the best web2 user experience for web3 platforms, Notifi makes sure people get the information they need, from market trends to inbound transactions, without having to stay glued to their screens.
We also spoke about how experience in some of the world’s largest tech companies provided a firm’s high-performance business culture to develop into newer ventures, the importance of integrating with reliable partners who can guarantee support when you need it, and the missing link in the current web3 framework. Paul explains why he believes mass adoption is inevitable, and that means that startups need to avoid the ideology and focus on accessible solutions that work ‘like magic,’ rather than being limited to the crypto-purist economy.
