RYU LIN, a Taiwanese based in Tainan, Taiwan is a graduate from Corning University (formerly known as Leader University) in Tainan with a Bachelors Degree in Visual and Mass Communication.
Starting his career as a designer in an advertising firm, he continued to strive upwards into the media industry, first working in printing and commercial photography before landing the position of Director in charge of web-based products in a local Taiwanese company.
Ryu’s belief in self-confidence, honesty, integrity and hard work plays an integral part in creating one’s future. His previous involvement in web-based companies led him to become a part of a pioneering group involved in cryptography in Taiwan.
When cryptocurrency was first introduced in Taiwan, he and a couple of close friends decided that it was the next big thing to boom in the financial world. That led him to become one of the first few handful of players involved in the crypto platform in Taiwan.
After successfully obtaining some experiences in Forex trading and the US stock exchange, Ryu decided to try his luck in several other pioneer crypto exchanges, such as Bittrex, Poloniex, Bitfinex and several Chinese internal exchanges. Still maintaining his confidence in crypto itself, many of the shortcomings of the exchanges made Ryu decide that it was time for a “complete exchange" that can incorporate all features available to “real" investors.
His vision came with the introduction of some IT individuals during his visit to Malaysia. During a luncheon, the topic of creating an exchange similar to what Ryu had in mind was brought up. That was when the idea of creating Ace Exchange was conceived.
With his vast experience in trading, Ryu has been able to contribute his expertise to the team. His previous collaboration with Forex exchanges, working as advisor and handler of several backoffice systems, has provided him with a springboard into the cryptoworld in both China and Taiwan. He is also well-known to crypto investors both locally and abroad who seek his advice on the current crypto situation and infrastructures.
Now appointed as Chief Marketing Officer, we believe that he has the appeal to garner recognition in international marketing. This would be beneficial for beginners with a vision for the future cryptoworld.
