The Avengers of the EOS Community
We call ourselves the Avengers of the EOS community. EOS Asia has an all-star international founding team that brings together talents of China, Europe, United States and South Korea.
We are a very technical team. Our core technical members are backed by Silicon Valley incubator Y Combinator. We have built applications used by 10s of millions of users.
A little bit of background about myself.
My name is Dafeng. I’m the co-founder of EOS Asia. I also co-founded Strikingly.com, which is one of the largest website publishing platforms. We have more than 2 million people who published websites through Strikingly, backed by Silicon Valley incubator – Y Combinator. I started coding when I was 14 years old and during college, I created 3 Facebook apps that have 20 million users. So I have quite a bit of experience running distributed high transaction systems.
I co-founded EOS Asia with Joseph Fanelli. He is the founder of EOS Link, EOS Go China ambassador, and the co-founder of webao.co. Joe and I met through a mutual friend. We are both like the biggest EOS fans around, so our common friend decided to connect us both. And when we met each other, we immediately bonded together very well. We both share the passion for EOS and want to make EOS community better. Joe was already quite involved in the EOS community at that time, helping EOS Go and also helping BPs in China to set up their tech infrastructure. I was working on EOS-based DApps games.
Making Blockchain Technology Mainstream
Both of us are very passionate about EOS because we believe in order to make blockchain technology a mainstream technology that everyday people can use, the EOS platform needs to have killer DApps that have widespread adoption. That is if we want to make blockchain technology, not just a technology that geeks use, but also allow everyday people, like my parent and my friends, to use. We can only achieve it through DApps.
EOS is the only platform at the moment, but we see great possibilities.
