After the popular richest man Musk took charge of Tesla’s deployment of bitcoin, a Chinese “veteran” technology company also officially announced the launch of bitcoin.
Since yesterday evening, the currency circle has rejoiced again. After the popular richest man Musk took charge of Tesla’s deployment of bitcoin, a Chinese “veteran” technology company also officially announced the launch of bitcoin. Meitu Xiuxiu announced on March 7 that it would purchase USD 22.1 million worth of Ethereum and USD 17.9 million of Bitcoin on the open market on March 5, for a total price of approximately RMB 250 million.
In addition to the announcement of the listed company, Cai Wensheng, the head of Meitu, also admitted the investment in the circle of friends, which he described as “the value reserve for the long-term development of the blockchain.” Just like Tesla, Meitu’s behavior is more like the “first shot” of Hong Kong stocks investing in Bitcoin.
The Hong Kong version of “Tesla” has been released, who is Coinbase?
Just like Tesla’s layout of Bitcoin before, the execution of the $1.5 billion Bitcoin purchase order is Coinbase. It is reported that Coinbase helped Tesla complete this investment in the first week of February. Subsequently, the execution side of many US listed companies entering Bitcoin also fell on Coinbase.
While Cai Wensheng claimed to be “the first Hong Kong listed company to purchase BTC digital currency”, the voice of “Hong Kong version of Tesla” was endless. While everyone was in the carnival, another question was raised at the same time, who is Meitu’s Coinbase? The reason why everyone pays attention to this is because Meitu may only fire the “first shot”.
Just like the U.S. stock market, the deployment of Bitcoin by Hong Kong-listed companies is not a one-shot deal. There will be other companies in the future, and Meitu’s executive will provide them with more reference.
Cai Wensheng accumulated wealth through early Internet entrepreneurship and later became one of China’s most famous Internet investors. In 2014, Cai Wensheng invested in Ouyi OKEx and purchased the first Bitcoin. At the beginning of 2018, Cai Wensheng once became the rotating group owner of the smashing “three o’clock blockchain” community.
On February 23, 2018, the MiChain (token “Mei Mi”, BEC), which is inextricably linked to Meitu, landed on the cryptocurrency trading platform Ou Yi OKEx. But after two months of operation, the BEC contract suffered serious loopholes, and the project went bankrupt. Meitu said that BEC is not issued by Meitu, but an independent third-party organization, but Meitu has cooperation with it overseas.
Obviously, Cai Wensheng and Ouyi OKEx have a very close relationship, and this time Meitu’s purchase of Ethereum and Bitcoin is likely to be Ouyi OKEx. Ouyi OKEx may take this opportunity to become the main executive party of the encrypted assets of Hong Kong listed companies.
Who will be after Meitu? Ouyi OKEx has a huge potential customer base
After Meitu, who will become the next Hong Kong listed company to deploy Bitcoin?
Meituan may be one. Just in February this year, when Bitcoin reached a historical high, Meituan CEO Wang Xing once said on Fanfou that in theory, Satoshi Nakamoto is already the world’s richest man. It is understood that Wang Xing bought Bitcoin as early as 2013. At that time, he stated that he “must use practical actions to pay tribute to this extraordinary imaginative creation.” In the following years, he repeatedly published his opinions on Bitcoin. Thinking.
The same investor background, the same listed company in Hong Kong, and the same long-term focus on the cryptocurrency industry, have too much in common. After Meitu, the two companies with one word difference have the same entry into Bitcoin.
In addition, there are a large number of high-quality Hong Kong stock technology companies such as Tencent, Alibaba, JD.com, Xiaomi Group, SMIC, and Kingsoft. This makes Hong Kong’s cryptocurrency market more “imaginative”. If they also choose to enter Bitcoin, the selected “executor” may also use this to break out of the “first-class” and become a “super-first-class” existence in the digital currency trading world.
