Cocone had a blast at Paris Blockchain Week

Thu, 13 Apr 2023

Paris Blockchain Week 2023 brought together some of the biggest names in the blockchain and crypto industry. From 20-24th of March, prominent industry players gathered in Paris to discuss and share their thoughts on the decentralized ecosystem’s past, present and future. Throughout the week, Cocone had the privilege to participate as the title sponsor for the event and connect and dive into the wonderful world of Web3 and virtual fashion. Here’s a short overview of Cocone’s activities during Paris Blockchain Week and our thoughts we shared with the audiences.

The first day of the week kicked off on March 20th with the Talent Fair, a dedicated day for talents and employers at the Westin Hotel in the heart of Paris. This full day event introduced us to key recruiters from top and leading companies in crypto, web3 and digital assets, as well as students, candidates and young professionals looking for new job opportunities globally. We had the pleasure to connect with international talent, introduce the background of Cocone and its services and encourage young professionals to shape their careers and find their next dream job.

Investor Day took place in the same venue as the Talent Fair, during which, Woonsuk Lee, Cocone’s Global IR Team Lead, joined the panel discussion on “Talent management: Investing in employee retention strategies” together with talent representatives from Halian, PyratzLabs and DEC Institute. The panel discussed the hiring process of Web3, whether it differs from hiring Web2 talents and unanimously agreed that the Web3 hiring process is the same as the traditional process and each talent needs care and clear focus in the company.

Woonsuk emphasized the importance of inspiring creativity in Cocone’s recruitment process. Cocone's designers make up more than half of our staff (there’s more than 500 of them!) and are the most valuable assets in Cocone. Therefore, we are providing opportunities for our employees to stay creative and be inspired daily by offering flexible working hours, various co-learning events and overseas study programmes and also by investing in our own medical and therapeutic services.

The next day was Web3XP, where the focus was on unlocking the real power of Web3. Carrousel du Louvre was the place for prominent players to gather and discuss choosing the right tech, digital asset ownership, metaverse and more. Cocone had the honor to present a keynote on the event's Master Stage and introduce Cocone’s success story on “How we have sold 16 billion pieces of avatar fashion items to date?”. The keynote was given by Suk-Jae Chang, CEO of Cocone Europe and Chief Global IR & PR Officer, who spoke about Cocone’s background and notable achievements over 13 years of avatar styling & social networking experience.

The Paris Blockchain Week Summit took place over 2 days through 22nd and 23rd of March, and explored the latest developments in blockchain technology and its potential applications across a range of industries. Next to crypto and blockchain companies, Cocone was present with a big booth, which caught the attention of many visitors and presented good opportunities to have meaningful discussions with dedicated professionals, blockchain enthusiasts, investors and entrepreneurs.

During the Paris Blockchain Week Summit, we were also glad to participate on a panel discussion ‘’NFTs, Gaming & Metaverse: what’s your next move?’’, together with people from organisations shaping the future of the ecosystem - The Oikos, The Sandbox, Animoca Brands and EOS Network Foundation.

Our team met with a lot of potential collaboration partners, investors, journalists and people eager to learn more about avatar and digital fashion creation. We are super happy that we participated in the flagship blockchain event and made the first steps in our global outreach!
