In addition they will have the important appearance from Kobe Bryant, who “graciously agreed” to participate in the event.  Sun went on saying that “niTRon is all about entrepreneurship, and unleashing the creativity of people who feel like they are being locked out of sharing and profiting with their work because big-name companies erect barriers to that content”.

Further Objectives

These efforts all together are there to assist with everything from event server support to migration and development.     

While talking about decentralization of internet, Sun stated: “it is my deep belief that technology should be fair and distributed”. The CEO deeply supports this vision; and tries to back it up via charitable contributions such as the recent one with Binance.

“Blockchain is a collaborative environment; it needs nurturing. We were thankfully in a good position financially to serve as an example to others; long-term thinking and support are what we need to boost the industry in general”, stated Sun.

Finally, Sun also commented on the regulatory field they are believe in. “We are operating under the assumption that regulation will come to the industry in many places. In many ways, it will be necessary to legitimize the market and separate good practices from bad…”, concluded Sun.
