SafeMoon CEO John Karony Named a 2022 CEO of the Year by Utah Business

-CEO of the Year Award, ‘SafeMoon Saturday’ at SxSW on March 12 and presentation with UN NGO Committee on March 24 underscore the company’s growing Venture Philanthropy role-

SILICON SLOPES, Utah--()--In its continuing focus on the advancement of crypto technology in support of Venture Philanthropy, technology ecosystem leader SafeMoon is taking giant strides in the first quarter of 2022.

Today, Utah Business magazine acknowledged SafeMoon CEO John Karony as a 2022 CEO of the Year. The acknowledgment is featured in the magazine’s March 2022 issue, which notes "CEO of the Year is a highly selective program in which we honor chief executives who have had an incredible impact on their companies and communities and have made it their mission to change the way we do business in Utah.”

The award is especially fitting following the company’s historic launch of initial technology and the SafeMoon protocol and token in 2021, which has resulted in a participating audience of multiple millions. The company is now making the transition from fast launch to managed company and ecosystem technology provider that is now becoming increasingly ruggedized for long-term success.

To that end, the company is advancing new technology to create and expand a DeFi ecosystem in which an increasingly bigger community can channel the power of the blockchain for business models based on Venture Philanthropy – offerings such as wind turbine technology that can be advanced most broadly and effectively through a collaborative business model that also produces a profit. The result is “Impact with an ROI,” according to Karony, and is rapidly expanding with the support of the #SAFEMOONARMY community that is now multiple million participants strong.
