Founder and CEO at Qtum, Forbes China’s 30 under 30 2017.
Patrick discovered blockchain technology while doing research for his Ph.D. in Communications and Information Systems at China Academy of Sciences, but when finding out about the immediate opportunities in the private sector, Dai focused his efforts.
Patrick previously worked at Alibaba as a senior product manager, but his passion for blockchain technology drew him away. Dai has been working in the blockchain industry since 2012 and has lent his expertise to the notable projects like Factom as a technical advisor. However, Patrick is most renown for his work as the co-founder of Qtum, which he has spent over a year developing.
