Joining IoTeX

“I started my journey as an investor in Singapore about ten years ago after graduating from NTU.

“We focus on building the network, the research, and the whitepaper, which is to provide the architecture and the tokenomics as well as the use cases. This is our interactive process to engage with the community, which provides us with a lot of feedback and participate in the bootstrap process so that you can consider them (the community) as the co-builders of the network.”
