PUBLISH is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Morning Letter Culture Foundation, the publisher of “Go Dowon’s Morning Letter” (고도원의 아침편지 in Korean).

Go Dowon, a former journalist and the Chairman of The Morning Letter Culture Foundation, is best known for his “Morning Letter,” a daily email newsletter project he started in August 2001. With close to 4 million subscribers around the world, the Morning Letter consists of inspirational quotes along with Go’s thoughts and comments. Go, through the Morning Letter Culture Foundation, also oversees the operation of the Go Dowon Healing Center, a meditation and education center located in Chungju, North Chungcheong province.

Under the agreement, the Morning Letter Culture Foundation will implement PUBLISHlink’s blockchain-based R2E (read-to-earn) solution and reward subscribers of the Morning Letter in NEWS coin, PUBLISH’s native cryptocurrency.

Commenting on the partnership, Go said, “We are excited to begin this journey with PUBLISH as we look to upgrade our platform and grow our readership base to 7.5 million with the help of PUBLISH’s blockchain technology.”

“PUBLISHlink will enable The Morning Letter Culture Foundation to increase engagement by giving back to loyal readers of the Morning Letter in a user-friendly and non-intrusive manner,” PUBLISH CEO Sonny Kwon added.
