Forbole has been born (officially)

(中文按此) On 24 Oct 2017, Forbole has been born. Who else was born on 24 Oct? One of them is Stephen Covey, the author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, one of the best selling self-help books ever.

Covey coined the idea of abundance mentality, a concept in which a person believes there are enough resources and successes to share with others. We are not playing a zero-sum game. Your success is not necessarily made at the expense of mine. If I help you this time, and you help me next time, both of us will become better. If more people think like this, our world will become a better place.

So, what is Forbole?

“Forbole” is a portmanteau of “for” and “Bole”. We are sure you know what is “for”. What is “Bole” then? Time for a Chinese lesson.

“Bole” was the legendary inventor of equine physiognomy, which is a technique to “judge a horse’s qualities from appearance”. In Modern Standard Chinese, Bole figuratively means “good judge of (especially hidden) talent”. (

We are so lucky that we have met a lot of Bole in our life who unleashed our potential and helped us to grow. We would like to help more Bole to discover more hidden talents. That’s why we founded Forbole, a reliable social ecosystem based on recommendations, referrals, and rewards, enabled by blockchain.

The pre-ordering of our premium memberships (which will include Boleus Tokens, the crypto-tokens we will develop) has started. Join us as a Bole to make this world a better place full of opportunity, success, and happiness.
