An Essential and Practical Guide to the Chinese Crypto Community

An Essential and Practical Guide to the Chinese Crypto Community

Can’t travel to Asia anymore due to Covid-19? Can’t have that meeting that you wanted anymore with that executive?

As our team receives ongoing questions and pings from our western readers on the things happening in Asia, we are re-surfacing some of the in-depth coverage interviews and write-ups of notable themes, organizations and figures in Asia that continue to be relevant in the cryptocurrency circle. We hope that once travel opens up again, you’ll be more prepared than ever to pursue and learn about the happenings in Asia.


This is a presentation shared by Toya during our GCR workshop.
