Da Hongfei on NEOs Future and the Cryptocurrency World
To the NEO community, Da Hongfei needs little introduction. However, to those who have yet to dive into NEO, some foundational information is proper. Da Hongfei is the founder of NEO (formerly known as Antshares), a blockchain platform for distributed apps. He is also the founder and CEO of Onchain, a blockchain development company for enterprise-level companies and institutions.
Hongfei is widely regarded as one of the principal figures in the cryptocurrency world, especially on the subject of blockchain adoption in China.
Behind his amicable personality and candid jokes of his chubby and humble early cryptocurrency days is one of the key strategists behind a cryptocurrency with an all-time-high market cap of over $10.5 billion, and a burgeoning ecosystem of entrepreneurs and developers.
The following interview with Da Hongfei was conducted at NEO DevCon by Alex Moskov, Colin Harper, and Bennett Garner. We jump into several topics concerning Hongfeis vision for NEO, the cryptocurrency world at large, as well as a few questions concerning the psyche of the man at the helm of a multi-billion dollar movement and technological revolution.
