According to The Block, Jihan Wu, former CEO of Bitmain, may launch a new project next month. According to sources, the new crypto startup Matrix will become “the largest over-the-counter platform, and at the same time an asset management service.”
We can safely say that a startup will get a good boost at the start due to its close ties with Bitmain. The new venture will offer the company storage and loan services, receiving in return a liquid pool.
According to another source, similar levels of liquidity will lead to lower prices for crypto assets on the platform, which will give the exchange a competitive advantage in Asia.
At the moment, it is not known whether Wu will take up a post of CEO in the new company, and it is also unknown whether Matrix will receive a work permit in China. Let us recall that last November, Wu was demoted from the position of “director” to the position of “head” at Bitmain.
Bitmain is one of the largest players in the cryptocurrency market, while Wu continues to hold 20.5% of the company's shares.
