About Bit.Country

Bit.Country is an EVM-enabled blockchain network for user-created metaverses and games.

Everyone can start their own metaverse for their people with the 3D world, NFTs, play-to-earn & build communities to earn, and takes community engagement to a new dimension on web3.0.

Our network supports Ethereum-compatible smart contracts, developers can deploy their existing Dapps or build brand new ones for bit countries.

In each bit country, users can use $NUUM or supported tokens, the local marketplace, and the local DAO that governs the community and makes decisions for issues such as the supply of assets.

The Inception

In early 2018, Ray Lu, our Co-founder & CEO, while attending the US-China blockchain conference in San Francisco, visualized a future digital world for virtual assets and virtual life. Making it meaningful and real through a trustless network of value, which is a strong link between the metaverse and reality. He bought the domain name right on the spot and started imagining a new venture.

Start your own bit country for your people

Since then, his team Justin, Shannon, and Daniel at, with their master-apprentice culture, started the proof of concept. In late 2018, Ruitao, CEO and Co-Founder of Acala Network, also his former colleague and friend, introduced Substrate/Polkadot technology to him. This new technology excited the team as they found that it was the only framework available on the market that can implement the ultimate vision of Bit.Country with environmental sustainability.

“We could have raised capital eight months earlier in the current market, however, we chose to build milestones first and create a long-term thinking culture. Not only for the community but most importantly for ourselves, the co-founding team members.

This long-term thinking is evidenced by our seed round valuation, we aimed for a humble valuation to give our end users room for growth.”, says Ray Lu.

Ray Lu is a seasoned entrepreneur and has successfully launched three multi-million dollar startups in tech and real estate, and his group currently has an AUM of $US 50M. (Pre Bit.Country)

Now, I am committing the next 10 years of my life for a metaverse future, it is a great feeling that we can bring web3.0 to everyday people like us.”, says Ray Lu.

Our Approach

Education is the door to many great things, as founding members of Industry Connect, a well-known global tech educator, our proven strength is to educate people for success.

We have launched several courses to bring people to benefit from the Web3.0 movement. Those are the Substrate Runtime Developer Academy (partnered with Acala Network), and the world’s first Metaverse Career Academy.

Education will allow us to bring awareness to this new paradigm while growing an elite community for the metaverse future. More

Our Team

Everyone in the team is a believer in a metaverse future, and we have talented staff from the Pacific regions, Europe, Silicon Valley, and Asia; with a diversity of skills and experiences accumulated from large-scale solutions to great community development.

Our secret weapon is education. Industry Connect has been serving the world in the tech education space since 2013, and our group has benefited greatly by having a direct relation to some of the top talent at the beginning of their journey. Some had become co-founders in the startups that we have launched over the years.

After recent acceptance into Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator, we are mentored by experienced blockchain experts, and connecting with more partners.
