KR1 January Update 🚀

At KR1 we support and invest in the best and most disruptive decentralised projects in the world. We support projects and teams looking to help bring about radical change and social improvement through decentralised technologies, and to help fix the broken internet that we have.

We had an incredible 2017 and took a breath at the end of December and we had a thought we would get a gentle start to 2018, but January started off at a blistering pace! To kick off we released news on some investments we made from the tail end of 2017.

PROPS by YouNow

“(…) a few platforms dominate social, and control digital media distribution. Their strength depends on millions of users creating and sharing content, but only a small fraction of the hundreds of billions in enterprise value that they have amassed flows back to those that create it. PROPS ensures that network value flows back to the people who help it grow, better aligning stakeholders across the platform.”
