StormX CEO Simon Yu said, “The outpouring of support we’ve received from both individuals and industry-leading companies and advisors in our community in the lead up to the sale, and afterwards, has been humbling. Thanks to the commitment of our Storm Players and Storm Makers, we are confident that we’ll achieve our vision of creating a gamified micro-task platform that will revolutionize and democratize the freelance micro-task marketplace.
