StormX Team Appoints Digital Industry Veterans
StormX Inc., a blockchain-powered adtech and gamified micro-task solution, has announced the addition of two experts in the digital media and advertising fields, Jon Nolz and Perry Pak. Mobile adtech pioneer Nolz will join StormX as the Executive Vice President of Business Development, with multimedia industry veteran Pak brought on as the Head of User Acquisition. Both hires will assist StormX in driving monetization and user growth through strategic advertising partnerships and expansion into new markets.
The company has created Storm Play (formerly known as BitMaker), and Storm Market, with gamified micro-tasks, where people can earn STORM tokens anywhere, at any time, from any device. With over 1.2 million downloads, over 270k monthly active users across 187 countries, StormX is expanding based on demand. Current gamified micro-tasks include trying out different products and services, like from Hulu, Dollar Shave Club and Final Fantasy. As Storm Market expands, the focus is adding new category of gamified micro-tasks (Storm Gigs) in Machine Learning and QA Testing. The vision is not only about enabling more micro-earning opportunities, but also creating a gamified path for people globally to advance in life with a whole new way of job advancement.
Simon Yu, StormX CEO, said: “Bringing such highly accomplished individuals to the StormX team will enable us to quickly build the networks that will take us to the forefront of the thriving adtech space, and further towards our end goal of creating marketplaces for earning, spending, and economic advancement. In an industry still in its very early stages in terms of what it can achieve, we are excited to have two established experts on board who truly believe in and understand our strategic vision as we continue to develop our platform and provide the highest quality experience to our users.”
In his role of EVP of Business Development for StormX, Nolz brings three decades of high level digital advertising, marketing and adtech experience, having previously held roles as the VP of Business Solutions at Kochava and VP of Mobile Advertising at Hipcricket: two adtech industry leaders.
Nolz remarked: “StormX has already achieved a number of notable milestones in our short history, and I am confident that this is only the beginning of a very rewarding journey. I look forward to forging ahead with our ambitious yet calculated goals that will position StormX as a true representative of the new economy. I anticipate a bright future for our ever-expanding user base and for the monetization of new and existing platforms.”
As Head of User Acquisition for StormX, Pak has almost two decades of extensive digital media experience, and has been building specialized expertise in the mobile user acquisition space since 2010. He has helped set the user acquisition strategy for multiple Microsoft apps, including Bing, Hotmail, and OneNote, in addition to leading the mobile media strategies for eBay, Walgreens, and Realtor.com. Pak’s teams have helped drive over 50 million paid downloads and more than 20 apps into the iTunes Top 25 over an 8 year span.
Pak commented: “The StormX team has a genuinely unique take on the adtech and mobile earning market, and their refreshing vision, enthusiasm and passion for their business is one of the key reasons I was eager to come on board. With the current rate of platform expansion and its already impressive list of strategic partnerships, user base, and credentials, I am excited to see what we can achieve.”
