When it comes to ICOs, people often become preoccupied with what the ICO is about and what features it can (potentially) offer. However, many tend to overlook who the actual founders of an ICO, which is a critical piece of the puzzle.
Cloudbric would like to officially introduce the C-level team of the reverse ICO concept. Learning more about each founding member’s backgrounds, accomplishments, and hobbies can be invaluable and help users connect better with the team.
Cloudbric ICO’s CEO, Co-Founder, and Othello Expert
[TJ Jung, CEO of Cloudbric]
TJ Jung is the CEO and Co-Founder of Cloudbric. One of TJ’s biggest passions lies in computer technology and information security. To give you an overview, he started off his career in IT security as an associate in 2009 at Penta Security Systems, Inc.
During his time at Penta Security, TJ was credited as the inventor of various IT security related patents, such as specialized data security methods, generation and verification of alternative data in a specified format, etc. He also eventually made his way to becoming the VP of Product & Technology for multiple award winning security solutions at Penta Security.
By 2017, he became the CEO of Cloudbric Corporation (which started as an in-house venture of Penta Security Systems), as well as the Cloudbric reverse ICO venture.

In terms of his personal hobbies, TJ is a major Othello fan, which is a strategy board game that’s played around the world. He once served as the VP of the Korea Othello Association and also ranked 8th in the World Othello Championship in 2003. He is still as passionate of a player today as he was back then.
He’s also an avid and competitive salsa dancer, which tends to always catch people by surprise. Next time, if you’re in need of a dance buddy, TJ is certainly the man to call!
CTO, Co-Founder, and R&B Enthusiast
[DS Kim, Co-Founder and CTO of Cloudbric]
Next up is the CTO of Cloudbric’s reverse ICO, DS Kim. DS brings a wealth of information security knowledge and expertise spanning over 20 years in the field.
DS is also a man that likes to stay busy. He also serves as the CSO of Penta Security Systems, Inc., Chief Director of the POSTECH Startup Incubator called APGC-Lab, and CTO of the AMO Foundation. DS was also the Co-Founder of XBrain and now supports it as an adviser. Sometimes, there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to fill his curiosity and work ethic!
[Tea time with DS]
As you can see from his various business titles and roles in multiple organizations, relieving stress is also vital component of his life. One of his favorite stress relievers is listening to and singing R&B music. In another lifetime, his biggest dream will be to try out for American Idol as an accomplished R&B singer.
Head of Blockchain Development, and Dog Lover
[Min Woo Nam, Head of Blockchain & Security Development]
Min Woo Nam is the head of blockchain development & security development for Cloudbric and brings over 18 years of cryptographic software development and IT experience to the team.
He’s kind of the wunderkind of the Cloudbric team as he’s the team’s leading developer and security expert. Min Woo gained industry wide recognition as the creator of some of the best selling data security products (focusing on PKI and SSO) in the entire South Korean market.
Those close to Min Woo knows that his skills have no limits. If you ask him any technology related question or request, his answers usually seem to be along the lines of, “tell me what you need, and it’s done.”

Cocky or confident? No matter the semantics, Cloudbric values his experience, talent, and willingness to make Cloudbric a high performance ICO solution.
However, Min Woo is not just a talented developer. There is also a much softer (perhaps, fluffier?) side of Min Woo. He is a mega dog lover! As you can see in the picture above, he usually spends his free time devoting his love and attention to his Bichon Frise named Muji.
What the Three IT Security Experts Have in Common

Not many would agree that an Othello master, R&B enthusiast, and a dog lover would make a great team. However, all three together bring a special level of competition, passion, and natural born talent into the same room. More importantly, they all share the goal of making Cloudbric a market disrupting solution in the ICO space.
