What is your field of expertise?

I have led a lot of projects such as Elaphant, Elabank, Cryptoname, Shadowtoken and FilDA. I have also participated in and supported many other projects. Therefore, it seems that initiating projects is my field of expertise, but my ultimate goal is to enhance the Elastos ecology and community through project incubation, so that the Elastos can rapidly develop.

What is your goal with Elastos by the end of the Council’s next term?

I have worked on many projects, some successful and some unsuccessful, so I have a good understanding of what a project needs, and what we need for Elastos. I hope to share my experience with you through the CR platform, and I also hope that, with this platform, I can exert greater influence in the ecological community and better promote the development of the project.

What is the main issue with ELA, looking at its market performance (dropping out of top 100, currently sitting 500+ in terms of MC)?

The crypto world has evolved from public chain to DeFi and NFT over recent cycles, but we still stay where we were. We should absorb the driving forces of this era and combine our technical concepts to prepare for the next generation cycle. In addition, we need the community to unite as one. If we keep selling such cheap ELA, even a good project will end up struggling due to the loss of the community.

What should be Elastos’ killer dApp in your opinion?

It’s hard for me to predict what a killer dApp is. Vitalik said that ETH itself is a killer dApp because it has bred countless dApps. I think what we are looking for is an application paradigm of the next generation, similar to DeFi and NFT, which can meet a wide range of demands. We must find it and support it, so that we can be closer to the mainstream in the next wave.

How are you going to contribute to the CR Council if you get elected?

First of all, I will contribute my knowledge and experience to the CR Council. Secondly, I can work with other council members on eco-projects. Finally, the projects I am involved in can also participate in the interaction with CR and other eco-projects.

If you are running for your first time, please introduce yourself to the community. Tell us a little about your background, prior experience, and personal vision for Elastos and Cyber Republic. Or, if you are a former council member, please share your contribution to the CRC that you have made.

As mentioned above, I initiated and participated in many projects, and am a current Council member. I learned and grew up through acknowledging and reacting positively following mistakes. The biggest mistake I made in the last session was to reject the Elacity proposal.

Since then, I have changed my assessment perspective on community proposals and listened more to others’ opinions. I want to say sorry about projects similar to Elacity, but these experiences have improved my understanding. I think I can do better in the next CRC.

Would you say the design of suggestions and proposals, and the CRC in general, has been effective? What could be improved?

In addition to supporting eco-projects more broadly, I would like to see some more specific changes implemented, such as adding a freezing function to our ESC in the face of a hacker attack, so that malicious hacker accounts can be locked down. Of course, it would require an authorization of CR Council. I hope to push forward the proposals in this regard.

Who else would you endorse for being on the Council with you?

Ryan, who is a real entrepreneur, and I hope to continue to work with him.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

We have been together for five years, and we hope that all holders in the community can continue to maintain their faith and hope. We should see that although we are as yet not good enough, we have also created self-contained projects such as FilDA, Glide and Elacity.
There are still many people working for them, and the desire and effort to improve will not diminish. If we can unite, we still have the opportunity to take center stage.
