“As an important participant in the KCS’s decentralized ecology, we expect to work together with KuCoin in exploring the hidden gem to achieve win-win cooperation and KCS’s self-circulating ecosystem. The KCC Unicorn Contest is only the beginning of our plan, followed by a Hackathon and other on-chain incentives. Of course, we will continue to pay attention to the elite projects in this event. Apart from the prize, we would like to provide liquidity support, brand exposure, and other incentives depending on the maturity of the projects. At the same time, as a fast-growing public chain, we welcome quality talents all over the world to join KCC and collaborate in Web 3.0.”
