A Decade in Crypto banner

In 2011, a university finance student fascinated by monetary history and its future, became mesmerised by the concept of cryptocurrencies. He gave up preparing for his CPA exams and became a pioneering force in a nascent blockchain industry. Jihan Wu’s passion to contribute to the crypto community’s development led him to co-found Bitmain Technologies and in 2019, Matrixport – Asia’s fastest growing digital asset management platform with USD10 billion in AUM and custody.
