Victoria, Seychelles – KuCoin, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency trading platforms, announced that its venture capital arm KuCoin Ventures is making a strategic investment in Pixie, the world’s first fully functional photo and video sharing social network on Web3 with the SocialFi concept.

Pixie is an entertaining social media platform that can allow users to earn cryptocurrency. Like a web3 version of TikTok and Instagram, Pixie has taken the lead in bringing SocialFi to the world. Using NFT technology, Pixie users will get all rights to their digital content, such as ownership. With the help of NFT technology, Pixie is a pioneer in copyright protection for digital content from the very beginning of the initial content creation.

KuCoin Ventures’ new funding announced today will be used to support the expansion of Pixie’s team and many other aspects, such as product, technology and security, to improve its user experience and launch more innovative products.

Pixie will make huge and continuous profits through advertising, which means that Pixie is quite different from the project which relies on the membership of more paying users. As a Web3 version of Instagram or Tiktok, I think Pixie has huge imaginative space in the future.

Amjad Suleman, Chief Commercial Officer of Pixie, said: “Pixie is founded on the idea that the public will realize that multinational social media companies are making billions from their content, and they won’t see it. a cent. Using our cutting-edge knowledge of blockchain technology, we have built what we believe to be the world’s first SocialFi network. Ensuring users have true ownership of their content is what Pixie is all about, and we hope this will spark the start of the “socialize to win” era. The investment is vital for Pixie’s next stage of expansion. It is an honor to receive investment from KuCoin. With their support, we will work to further improve the SocialFi ecosystem and facilitate the free flow of asset values.
