Jack Lu – Wanchain & lessons learned running a $35 million ICO
|Jack Lu is a blockchain architect and entrepreneur who graduated from Peking University & The Ohio State University. He cofounded Factom; Wanglutech, Wanchain and the TXACE.|
Wanchain’s vision: to become the infrastructure and platform which connects and exchanges value between different blockchains. Think of Wanchain as a digital bridge; the decentralized version of traditional banks in the current financial ecosystem. Wanchain would connect a user’s accounts between different blockchains. The platform does this through the use of cross-chains, which provide the essential framework to manage and interact with financial applications based around digital currency and assets.
“In essence, Wanchain is an infrastructure protocol that allows individuals to exchange digital assets between different blockchain networks in a decentralized way,” said Jack Lu, founder of Wanchain and former CTO of Factom, in an interview with Bitcoin Magazine. “This will significantly boost the liquidity of the digital assets and have the greatest potential to reform the financial market. The foundation of digital assets exchange will be laid with Wanchain.
When asked how confident he is that Wanchain will realize its ambitious vision, Jack Lu does not flinch, “From the beginning Wanchain has been an international team with global vision. I have experience on both the technical and business side in the blockchain world. If you look at our team, you will have a sense that we are all the elite in the industry. That is why I feel very confident.”
