Congrats to team Solana (one of my portfolio companies) for climbing to seventh in the Crypto Top 10!  Solana is slowly becoming the de facto standards for DeFi and NFTs.  Here are the hundreds of projects now building on Solana.

On October 4th at 6 pm PST, FoundersHK is hosting its very first Demo Day with  Batch 1 accelerator companies. From fintech, foodtech to edtech, you will get to meet 12 amazing companies.  Join us.

Yesterday was a big moment in the history of mobile apps.  Epic Games' Tim Sweeney landed a big win against Apple's Tim Cook. The judge ruled that Apple must allow developers to send users outside the App Store to make payments—the biggest change to the platform since it was created in 2008. Great moment for embedded fintech startups!
