This website features the main projects Kai has created, but there were many in-between that are noteworthy.
CraftFest was a real game changer for Kai, starting his journey in entrepreneurship before high school. What started out as a single-player world on Minecraft became a popular multiplayer server with mini-games and ranks players could purchase. It turned in to a lot of income for a 14 year old, and required Kai to learn everything from coding plugins to marketing and managing a community.
As the server grew, Kai (known as kaimaikai in-game, and later on CraftFestMC) ditched the old single-player world and put together a hub with various game-types players could enjoy. This led to more people joining and more ranks being bought. CraftFest became a community like none other, sparking friendships and opportunities for the future. In fact, many of Kai's current friends and business partners are from the CraftFest days, where they met and played on that very server.
Unfortunately CraftFest met its demise when the host shut down and the files were lost, but the experiences were never forgotten and Kai would take everything he learned from it to the next project, making it bigger and better.
VaultCraft was the first step towards real business and competition for Kai. At this point in time there were a ton of popular Minecraft servers, so standing out was difficult. It wasn't going to be easy alone, so he got together with two developer friends, Connor Hollasch and Nick Peterson, to create an advanced prison-themed server.
With more experience this time around, the server grew much faster than the previous one. There were Twitch streamers and YouTubers advertising VaultCraft, bringing hundreds of players, and our entertaining theme kept them around. Players could design cells, mine to rank up, create gangs and more. The server started out hot but burned out quickly. Interest in prison servers decreased and the community got more saturated, so Connor, Nick and Kai decided to move on to new ventures.
After developing and designing all the websites for his previous projects, Kai decided it was time to make a company out of his new skills and provide web design services to the gaming community. Yeti Crew was a small team of hard-working people who brought dozens of websites to life. With great reviews and a working referral system, Yeti Crew gained a lot of hype and got a ton of clients who needed websites for their game servers and hosts. After a very successful run, Kai decided it was best to move on to something new, having saved up a lot of money for new projects.
MyMCServers was the first large-scale company Kai founded. After running various game servers (most notably CraftFest, FlexGaming and VaultCraft) he decided it was time to take it to the next level and start hosting them. His co-founder, Nir Zemer, was a connection from VaultCraft and had a lot of pull in the Israeli gaming scene. Kai handled the development while Nir handled the advertising.
Before long, MyMCServers was one of the largest Minecraft server hosting providers in Israel, and had thousands of other customers worldwide. They secured dozens of partnerships and moved into dedicated servers and website hosting as well. After only 9 months since the launch, MyMCServers was sold to a private buyer.
After the success of MyMCServers, Kai branched out to more forms of hosting and cloud computing and founded DediFire on his own, offering dedicated, web, and game server hosting for 20+ different games. With a foot in the industry already, Kai was able to gain hundreds of clients in countries all around the world. Ben Adamsky joined the executive team later on to take on the role of COO.
In May of 2016, a few members of the DediFire team attended WorldHostingDays (WHD) in Phoenix. After a few investors hopped on board, DediFire was able to get colocation in Chicago and Amsterdam following a deal with Singlehop. This opened the door for new clients in Europe, leading to a partnership with Discord.FM, now known as Amped.
After about a year of DediFire being online, global Minecraft hosting was getting more saturated and cheaper by the day, so DediFire turned its focus to dedicated and VPS hosting under new management at GodlyCloud.
After many projects in and around game hosting, Kai decided that he wanted to stretch his wings a bit and go out of his comfort zone. This is where Libs vs Cons comes in, a physical card game about political stereotypes. With minimal experience in digital art (aside from web design) Kai made all the artwork for the game himself over the span of a few months. Approaching the launch date, Kai brought his business partner Ben Adamsky on board to help with shipping and manufacturing.
Although the Kickstarter was unsuccessful, the card game is soon to be completed and discussions are open with multiple publishers. Libs vs Cons is looking at a release sometime in 2018...
With his recent success in web design and cryptocurrency investing, Kai decided it would be a good idea to merge the two worlds. Konjure is in development to be the website builder for decentralized applications, with an ICO planned for Q4 2018.
Hello, 'grats on finding the secret menu. Thanks for visiting my site and learning about my journey as an entrepreneur. I didn't envision my life going this way; I actually planned on going to college to become an architect. That was before I realized working for other people made me want to off myself, of course. Don't want to throw a giant wall of text at you so I'll get straight to the point: I thoroughly researched and experimented with religion and found absolutely nothing, so I decided to dedicate my life to finding a way for all of us to avoid death, since chances are, it is the end. These projects I'm working on are preparing me to take on a feat of that magnitude.
Anyways, as your reward for finding this secret, enjoy some old videos!
