Known chiefly as a translator of Satoshi Nakamoto’s original Bitcoin whitepaper, Jihan Wu was one of the first Bitcoin evangelists who introduced the cryptocurrency to early adopters. In 2013, Wu founded Bitmain, which designs hardware and other solutions for blockchain and artificial intelligence applications. In 2019, Wu co-founded Matrixport, a fast-growing one-stop digital asset financial services platform, which became a unicorn in 2021 with a valuation of $1 billion. In 2020, Wu founded and served as the chairman of Bitdeer Group, committed to building the most reliable digital asset mining service provider. Bitdeer Group is one of the largest cryptocurrency mining companies in the world, and its "cloud hashrate" occupies a 36.5% market share.
Wu’s lengthy tenure within the crypto space makes him one of the most credible and influential figures in this line of business.
