Phillip Pon has been named CEO of Artifact Labs, a notable Web3 and NFT company based in Hong Kong. Pon, who has extensive expertise in the blockchain business, will succeed Gary Liu, who will join the company’s Board of Directors as Founder and Director. Artifact Labs’ employment of Pon accelerates the business’s objective to ‘Preserve and Connect History’ on the blockchain, and indeed the company remains dedicated to assisting enterprises in adopting Web3 technology.

Pon formerly served as BC Technology Group’s Group Chief Operating Officer and as President of OSL, a publicly listed digital asset firm.

He brings a deep understanding of how blockchain technology can revolutionize traditional markets, and how digital assets can serve a new generation of consumers. I am proud of what we have achieved at Artifact Labs, and I look forward to seeing Phillip lead the company to even greater impact.”

In the report, Pon added, “I am thrilled to join Artifact Labs as CEO. Artifact Labs is dedicated to helping brands, cultural institutions and other intellectual property rights holders design and execute a strategy to enter Web3 with confidence and with measurable returns. We are keen to support those ambitions and I am excited to drive this mission forward with our talented team.”

In January, Artifact Labs announced a collaboration with celebrated Hong Kong retailer Goods of Desire (G.O.D.) to launch “請: The Invitation” (pronounced cing2 in Cantonese), an NFT project and community for rediscovering Hong Kong through exclusive and reality-bending events, and engagements with the city’s most unique characters, all while preserving Hong Kong’s most significant historical assets on the blockchain. Additionally, Artifact Labs will also present the world’s first Metaverse Symphony in May 2023, in collaboration with the world-renowned Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
