Introducing RockX

The smartest way to invest in digital assets

The global economy is going digital. Increasingly, more users in developed and developing economies are included in the financial system through mobile digital wallets. More and more users will be exposed to the concept and value of digital assets, especially those on distributed and decentralised ledgers, away from the control of any business organisations and government bodies. The global sentiment towards digital assets and cryptocurrencies has become more favourable and accepting.

But as the ecosystem becomes more complex and dynamic with each passing day, it can be overwhelming for new users to enter the industry and find opportunities with the right risk/reward profile.

We believe that this is the right time for us to build a platform to deliver credible and reliable crypto products for mainstream users who have considered diversifying their portfolio with digital assets, without worrying about the extreme volatility risks, and the steep learning curve to understand the mechanics behind the technology or the dynamics behind the industry.

The blockchain industry is ripe for the taking

The blockchain industry has undergone an immense transformation and maturity under an incredibly short period of time. Not too long ago, Bitcoin would be generally considered as the medium of exchange for shady and illicit operations but it is now positioned as digital gold. Bitcoin mining, the process to verify transactions on the blockchain, is now one of the most competitive and lucrative operations in the entire industry.

We believe that the emerging Proof-of-Stake (PoS) economy presents appealing investment opportunities. As constant development is ongoing to improve the scalability, privacy, and security of public blockchains, blockchain projects like Polkadot and Cosmos are emerging, bringing new models for governance and interoperability suitable for scalable operations and adoption.

Steep industry learning curve

We have identified several barriers that have effectively deter mainstream users and institutional investors from investing in digital assets:

  1. Significant price volatility: The volatility risks make it immensely difficult for investors to time a good entry point.
  2. Information asymmetry: Industry newcomers are usually left to research and discern information by going through technical whitepapers or searching for credible industry reports. Without the right sources of information, investors cannot adequately make sound decisions.
  3. Product risks and learning curve: Dealing with various complex exchanges and different types of wallets can be overwhelming for new users to ensure asset security.
  4. Unsuitable risk-reward investment profile: Not all investors are looking for a high risk-high reward investment profile. Participating in ICOs and margin trading are very risky activities, making it unsuitable for those only looking to expose themselves to a low-risk investment profile.
  5. High technical expertise requirement: Running independent mining and staking operations might not be viable for industry newcomers despite its potential for profitability.

RockX — The smartest way to invest in digital assets

We believe that in the near future, digital assets will present itself as a new global asset class. This is why we are launching RockX — a new comprehensive digital asset platform where mainstream users can participate in the blockchain economy at a suitable risk-reward profile. RockX is the first of its kind in the market where users can diversify and be exposed to different digital assets in one simple interface.

We have radically reinvented how users can maximise their exposure to digital assets in a hassle-free environment by designing an accessible and intuitive user experience for secure and reliable mining and staking services. In the near future, we will introduce a wider range of DeFi products on the platform.


The RockX team is made up of industry veterans with a wealth of experience and technical expertise.

Dr. Alex Lam, the CEO of RockX, is one of China’s most prolific leaders in the bitcoin mining industry. He is the founder and CEO of RockMiner where he led the company in the operations and expansions of large mining farms in China over the past six years. He holds a PhD in Financial Engineering from South China University of Technology.

Dr. Xinshu Dong, co-founder of RockX, is an established blockchain and cybersecurity scientist and practitioner. Prior to RockX, he was the CEO of Zilliqa, which is the first public blockchain in the world to implement sharding technology. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore. Together with Xinshu, the engineering team have years of experience working on and contributing to PoS blockchain projects.

With Alex’s unparalleled experience in the cryptocurrency industry and Xinshu’s technical expertise, we believe that RockX is perfectly positioned to build products that will usher in the next wave of mainstream investors into the industry, accelerating the acceptance of digital assets as a viable asset class.

This is only the beginning. RockX will start with providing reliable mining and staking services, and in the future, we will continue to build on this credible infrastructure where more products and services can be developed and curated to help users explore more opportunities in the digital asset economy.

We will be opening up for early community access very soon. Follow us on Medium and Twitter for the latest updates.
