Beacon Mentor Announcement - Jeff ‘Jiho' Zirlin

Beacon Core Contributors

We're thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Jeff Zirlin, affectionately known as "Jiho", to our diverse community of Beacon Mentors.

An influential figure in the web3 gaming industry, Jiho is the Co-Founder and Growth Lead of Sky Mavis, the studio behind Axie Infinity. Axie is a pioneering game in web3 that is largely credited with being the largest NFT gaming ecosystem, and one of the first games to implement NFTs into its platform. 

With a fascination for games like Starcraft and World of Warcraft, and an endearing love for collectables, embodied in a cherished Pokémon card collection from his youth, it seems that Jiho was destined to make a huge impact in the web3 gaming world.

Most recently, 'Axie Infinity: Origins,' Sky Mavis’ newest title, has successfully debuted on the Apple App Store, representing a major breakthrough not just for Sky Mavis, but for all of web3 gaming.

Our founders are looking forward to absorbing all that Jiho has to share! His in-depth understanding of the intersection of fun, economics, and community-building makes him an excellent resource for Beacon founders aiming to make their mark in the web3 space.

If you'd like to work with Jiho and the other incredible roster of mentors in our network, we invite you to apply to the next cohort of Beacon here.
