TL;DR: After an unexpected absence from activity in the cryptocurrency space, mining pool (ViaBTC) and exchange (CoinEx) founder Haipo Yang has become increasingly more public. From Twitter to Telegram to GitHub, Yang has reemerged, offering a few details on his present state of affairs and what the future holds for his businesses: ICO, offshore move, future tokens, and even margin trading. He is “recharged and prepared to fight for CoinEx,” Yang told enthusiasts.
CoinEx, ViaBTC CEO Haipo Yang Reemerges: Plan to Move, Decentralize
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Haipo Yang tweeted just days ago. And he has been tweeting and retweeting ever since. For admirers and enthusiasts alike, worry spread after Yang went incommunicado for months. Rumors then began he had been arrested by Chinese authorities, later confirmed by CoinSpice upon his release.
Since then, however, he remained low profile. On 20 March 2019, Yang reemerged in a Telegram chat room belonging to English discussion of his crypto exchange, CoinEx. “It’s good we have dreams,” he posted suddenly to the delight of its more than 10,000 members from around the globe.
“How are you? Long time not seeing you,” a member asked. “I am fine,” Yang answered. “Wow what a relief to have you here, bro,” another commenter stressed. “CoinEx also is fine,” the CEO insisted. There was talk about his recent GitHub activity, and more well-wishers joined the conversation.
Moving, Future Listings, Margin Trading
Questions and statements began pouring in, asking the status of CoinEx generally. “Wait and see,” he answered. CoinEx has been thought’ve to be similar in business model to that of Binance, for example, and so Telegram members asked about the exchange’s proprietary token and whether an initial coin offering (ICO) will be launched similar to its more popular rival. “Sure we will do it in the future,” Yang appeared to confirm. When asked for time specifics, he shot back, “No comment for now.”
On general sentiment about crypto markets tanking, Yang affirmed, “The bear market. Everyone lose,” but assured “It will be good in the future.” Asked about the prospects of a the exchange’s CET coin mooning, “On the way,” Yang cheered. Yet another Telegram chat group member asked, “Are you planning to move to other region?” such as Malta or the Cayman Islands, presumably to get out from under China’s repressive government. “Yes we plan moving to other place, build a decentralized team,” Yang confirmed.
When asked, “How’s the VIAT project going?” Yang offered a quick, “Fine.” Still other commenters were eager to learn about plans for future listings such as ADA, XLM, IOTA, NEM. “Coming soon. It will be listed one by one in the next few months,” the CEO claimed. “We plan to list most popular public chain and tokens,” along with margin trading, according to the back-and-forth between Yang and the group. “We plan to support margin in the third quarter, may be early.” As for issuing more of its CET coin, “No, we plan not issue more CET,” Yang insisted.
