Mind your pajis :explopants:
Tweet liked by Feng Han of Elastos, Elastos_Korea and retweeted by Brad Laurie. Otherwise, tweet went relatively unnoticed.

The above article is fresh. By coincidence, I pinged the author (xiao jin aka @clouds621518171) about his tweet concerning Newton from a little while back, he said he was releasing a piece in a few hours. Brilliant timing

“Jazzy” Jizhe Xu, aka Lee Wilson, seems to have matured out of his early days, and appears to have become a photogenic visionary. :rofl: @HarryvdV

Jizhe Xu in the telegram, not many questions at the time, but some insights.


Okbuy.com was charaterized as the “zappos of china” back in 2010 by venturebeat. It’s most recent c round (2012) of funding was headed by Tencent Win Win Fund. In an article I am no longer able to find, Shubin explained that 80% of Tencent’s funding was going towards building their back end system, in another interview stating “We are the ‘mall’ for Tencent community.

Shubin’s contribution to Newton will be the protocol level support to build e-commerce dapps like DAmazon, infrastructure for the protocol-based economy - or what they are calling Hyper Exchange. Could we see Tencent involved through their “WeStart” program with Shubin’s new project?
