1. Tell us about your background.
I graduated from National Taiwan University with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). I have been the CEO of a few listed companies in Taiwan, some for over 25 years. The public companies I lead are involved in many different industries, ranging from manufacturing, high tech electronics, ERP software, to even B2C internet operations among Asian countries. My personal expertise is business development and M&A activities.
2. How do you feel about blockchain’s future development?
I view blockchain as a business tool with a great future. Although the technology would be considered only at the infancy stage of development, it has received a huge amount of mainstream attention — a great start that will propel it to be utilized in more and more applications and eventually business-generating use cases.
3. Can you see any potential impacts that blockchain will have on your industry?
Being a key decision maker in our venture capital operations, we are seeing more startups studying the use of blockchain to facilitate trust and decentralization in their business models. Although this movement is young and needs time to grow, it is a great sign and a huge transformation from the first generation of e-commerce business models.
4. How did you first meet Alphanu team?
I was introduced to help guide the project by Allen Sung, whom I’ve worked with for quite some time. We serve together on the boards of a few listed companies.
5. What motivated you to become an advisor?
I’m intrigued by AlphaNu’s story and vision of transforming the algorithm trading markets, and curious as to how they intend to rely on the blockchain in creating a trustless business model. I believe that with their understanding of the market and the great minds they have put together to create the ideal solution, AlphaNu will make a tremendous impact upon algorithm trading and change the way that the algorithmic trading markets will operate.
6. How do you think Alphanu will create change?
I believe algorithm trading is soon to explode into the future of Asian financial markets. AlphaNu will be at the forefront of this trend and will enable the movement through an entirely different direction from the algorithm trading markets of the US — a movement that will cause the disintermediation of the traditional fund management industry.
