Today’s Asia Crypto News- June 13, 2018
Chinese nationals are establishing hundred billon funds in Singapore; Ripple CEO says China is under-reported; Binance offer fiat trading
I just watched this video of Jihan Wu, CEO of Bitmain, and the Circle co-founders when they were at Consensus 2018. Bitmain then just led Circle’s $110mn Series E round. What struck me the most was that Jihan, sitting in the center between the 2 founders, is wearing a plain, white t-shirt while the other 2 speakers were so suited up. Are the Chinese tech leaders taking a playbook from the Americans?
