Ep. 12: Bitmain — the Most Valuable Crypto Company in the World?

As a TechBuzz China listener, you must be at least a little bit crypto-curious. This week on TechBuzz China, we talk in-depth about Bitmain, the most valuable company in the cryptocurrency space, which happens to be from China.

TechBuzz China by Pandaily is a weekly technology podcast focused on giving you a peek into what’s buzzing within the tech community in China. It is co-hosted by Ying-Ying Lu and Rui Ma, who are both seasoned China-watchers with years of experience working in the technology space in China. They uncover and contextualize unique insights, perspectives, and takeaways on headline tech news that don’t always make it into English-language coverage.

This week, TechBuzz China’s very own Lu and Ma, along with guest co-host Joyce Yang, talk all about cryptocurrency – more specifically, the biggest crypto company in the world, Bitmain. With profits of $3 billion to $4 billion last year, how did Bitmain manage to hold 70-80 percent of the market share of bitcoin mining hardware? What is its future challenges and how will the Chinese government play a role?

Our special guest co-host this week is Joyce Yang, the creator of Global Coin Research, a content platform that bridges the East and the West in this new global crypto world. In this episode, we also hear from Tim Swanson, the founder of Post Oak Labs, who has heard over 500 blockchain-related pitches, and Jimmy Song, longtime bitcoin developer turned venture partner at Blockchain Capital.
