The majority of shareholders currently are Swiss citizens. The company has two very experienced board members such as a former early stage partner of Partners Group as well as a former BCG consultant and INSEAD graduate.
WHAT BIG PROBLEM DOES THE APP SOLVE?
The ambition for THE ZENE is to lead a new path in social media creating a springboard for creators, spectators and traders to cultivate and enjoy amazing content – rather than turning users into a product for the media industry. The current Social Media industry is Web 2.0 based where users can only read and write. THE ZENE wants to change this and become the first independent, client owned Web 3.0 Social Media App.
HOW BIG IS THE MARKET OPPORTUNITY?
Web 3.0 is transforming the creator economy. There is currently no Web 3.0 Social Media App, ensuring users own and are in full control of their own data. Our approach has been substantially confirmed by dynamic response data including more than 6’000 social media users across global markets, which resulted in up to 50% wanting to try the App of THE ZENE. Moreover the global non-fungible token (NFT) market size is expected to grow by USD 147.24 billion from 2021 to 2026 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (GAGR) of 35.27% as per the latest market report by Technavio.
