Report: (English/Japanese)
Mr. Bobby Lee with his BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford is "co-founder and CEO of BTCC, the leading bitcoin financial platform and the longest-running bitcoin exchange worldwide," according to Stanford's event website.
His seminar at the Engineering Center Auditorium has revealed why he has been so successful in this highly controversial business in the tightly regulated country.
After explaining the basic concept and nature of bitcoin, including "bitcoin mining," which itself is an interesting process, he turned to why bitcoin is so popular in China and also how to make a good entrepreneur in China, rather than getting into technological details about bitcoin, such as "blockchain," which most of the audience was interested in.
Furthermore, in taking up the Chinese situation, he emphasized mostly positive aspects (saying "the Chinese like bitcoin because it represents the digital future" and "the Chinese government seems supportive of bitcoin") and minimized the widely believed negative aspects (saying "bitcoin is not so heavily used to evade capital controls in China").
So, this seminar turned out to be a kind of promotional pitch rather than an academic explanation about bitcoin and its acceptance in China.
In any case, he is a terrific salesperson, and it is now understandable why he has been so successful in China for so long.
