LongHash: Hi Fuyao, please share with us a little more about what you did before Polkawallet?

Fuyao: I used to be a technical director of the supply chain blockchain department of the China entrepreneurs’ association. Since the inception of the project, I paid close attention to Polkadot and was a member of the community very early on. I participated in every version of the PoC test network and was also the Chinese translator of the Polkadot Wikipedia page.

 

LH: What made you interested in blockchain and to start a project?

Fuyao: In 2013, I learned about bitcoin, and in 2016, I began to pay attention to blockchain technology. Blockchain will be a defining technology of this generation, so I decided to dive into it.

 

LH: Why did you start Polkawallet, what problem are you hoping to solve?

Fuyao: As an early user of the Polkadot testnet, I realised that I need a mobile wallet that could be used anywhere and anytime, so I created exactly that.
