Huobi Group announced eight members of the Huobi Chain Expert Advisory Committee in its press release last week, and the names suggest nothing short of illustrious.
The members are Randi Zuckerberg, Jihan Wu, Steve Hoffman, Xiaolei Liu, Ooi Beng Chin, Jeffrey Wernick, Don Tapscott, and Lon Wong.
Meet The Illustrious Eight
As her last name suggests, Randi Zuckerberg is Mark’s elder sister, and was former Senior Executive of Facebook. Randi is Founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media. Along with Zuckerberg is Jihan Wu, the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Bitmain, the largest crypto mining hardware creator. Together, Zuckerberg and Wu are already worth billions of dollars.
Of course, it would be a mistake to discount the other members of Huobi’s think tank. Jeffrey Wernick, an early investor in Uber and Airbnb, is part of the committee. He bought his share of Bitcoins the year they were made available for purchase in 2009. And who fail to recognize Steve Hoffman, who is a household name in the industry, and is dubbed the “Silicon Valley Start-up Godfather?”
The think tank also has other firm executives aboard aside from Zuckerberg and Wu, as Don Tapscott, CEO of Tapscott Group, and Lon Wong, Founder and CEO of ProximaX, have graced the committee with their invaluable expertise and experience in the industry. Tapscott is also dubbed the “Father of the Digital Economy.”
Conversely, you cannot call the committee a think tank without the inclusion of notable academics whose supercomputer-like neurons fire ever so ceaselessly. Xiaolei Liu is a Professor of Finance and Accounting, as well as the Director of Blockchain Lab at Guanghua School of Management at Peking University. Also, Ooi Beng Chin is Fellow of Singapore National Academy of Science (SNAS), and is Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at National University of Singapore (NUS).
The members of the Huobi Chain Advisory Committee were specifically handpicked by Huobi Group for their invaluable contribution to academic, investment, and industry sectors. Together, they will offer professional advice and insights on underlying technology, business model construction, industry application, and other dimensions of blockchain technology. Furthermore, they will provide advice and support during the upcoming election of the Huobi Chain Leader Championship.
The announcement concluded:
“With the help of the expert advisers’ professional knowledge and foresight, as well as the accumulative years of experience of Huobi Group in the industry, we will forge ahead and build a new era of self-financing on a global scale together, so that blockchain industry will become better and live up to the opportunities of the times.”
