We interviewed the CEO of ImToken Ben He at DevCon in Prague in early November last year. If you don’t know about ImToken, you should. It is one of the largest, private companies in Crypto in Asia.

ImToken is currently the world’s largest Ethereum wallet with over 7.51million in installed devices (as of recent stat releases, read more below). It is feature-rich digital asset wallet that enables multi-chain asset management, DApp browsing and secure, private exchange of value. The company is headquartered in Singapore.

In this interview, we talk about Ben’s thoughts on the company success in Asia, on opensourcing their code, on their upcoming hardwallet, thoughts on potential expansion to the US and the outlook for 2019.

We will be sharing a written transcript soon. And you can check out the audio here:
