8 Decimal Capital x Polkadot

We are excited to announce that 8 Decimal Capital has invested in Polkadot. Polkadot is solving one of the most important problems in blockchain, interoperability, and we believe that the team led by Gavin Wood (previously Co-Founder and CTO of ethereum, Founder/Lead Developer of Parity Technologies and Founder/President of Web3 Foundation Team) is well-positioned to take on this challenge. Polkadot will be launching towards the end of 2019 and we are excited to the next wave of innovation coming into the space!

會上,年僅24歲的阮宇博清晰地向參會者勾畫著區塊鏈在社會和製度層面的影響力評估,以及八維資本在這個行業的佈局。阮宇博認為,中國的區塊鏈行業偏應用以及商業層開發,美國區塊鏈行業更注重區塊鏈基底的技術層開發;去中介化的區塊鏈技術顛覆的是價值交易的環節,優勢在於更加公平和高效的重新分配社會資源;人工智能會讓富人更加富有,但是區塊鏈却会为普通人赋能,重新定義的價值的分配體系;而穩定幣產品和技術會也将重塑全球金融格局。据他介绍,新創立的八維資本已經完成對穩定幣公司TrustToken及其穩定幣產品TUSD、穩定幣交易所Bibox、穩定幣加密交易所Seed CX、Coinsuper等完成股權投資。八維資本在韓國最大的公鏈ICON投資回報率已達50倍,在最大的社區化交易所FCoin的回報率達到100倍。

Entrepreneurs in nascent industries often face challenges that seasoned entrepreneurs might not have. In the blockchain industry, these challenges have included education, adoption and external forces like global regulation. Just “selling” a new technology to clients can be a challenge.

We are in an era where global digital economy and financial system is revolutionizing, and has opened the gates to blockchain — known as the “fourth industrial revolution” as described by the World Economic Forum.

Interestingly, when Marc Andreessen, the founder of Netscape, found himself in Silicon Valley in early 1994, he thought that he was too late and missed the whole thing as the short recession of 1990–1991 hit the technology industry hard. The current stage of blockchain and cryptocurrency development is most analogous to the Internet Revolution in 1994, in which we have invented TCP/IP, HTML, and FTP…
