On Sept. 15, Chiliz announced it was hiring Julian La Picque as its new Group Chief Financial Officer.
Picque was previously with blockchain platform Covantis where he served as CFO. According to a Chiliz blog, his experience will be “invaluable” as it gears up for a full mainnnet launch of CC2 — a protocol foundation of a web3 development ecosystem.
“The launch of CC2 will also increase the utility of Chiliz native cryptocurrency $CHZ, which is the digital currency of Socios.com,” said the platform.
Chiliz On The Web: Twitter users noted that Chiliz was rising at a time when the market was dropping sharply.
Of course those rallies might end but I don’t like to short those setups when they show resilience. https://t.co/unTt6QJyzu
