Rongxin and I worked together last semester as he answered Capital One’s thought-provoking question to the students of “How might we leverage the blockchain to create financial identities that are country independent” as part of Cornell’s Product Studio Challenge. Rongxin assembled a team of diverse Computer Science Masters students (mostly) and himself (Cornell Tech MBA) and advisors – including myself – to turn their answer into a prototype aspiring to become an independent business. I’ve been impressed with Rongxin’s and his team’s grit, educations, previous work experience (Zillow, Credit Suisse, Trax, Weizman, Calexus) and knowledge of blockchain tech and applications. I think ZeroBit would benefit from and contribute to Techstars Barclay’s. I’m pleased to make this recommendation.
