Zhu graduated with honors from Columbia University in New York with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. Zhu and Davies had worked for Credit Suisse as traders before going it alone. Zhu also had a brief spell in 2012 working as a trader for Deutsche Bank in Hong Kong. He spent more than two years with Flow Traders in Singapore, which was one of his first employment.
Zhu tweeted: “I’m only going to make one prediction for 2022 and it’s that at least 10 nation-states will make BTC legal cash.” Zhu made the statement regarding the adoption of Bitcoin in 2022. He hasn’t said much about Ethereum, likely because, as he stated in late 2021, he thinks the network needs a lot of work to reduce fees. Zhu is nevertheless optimistic about cryptocurrencies in general, calling them “the most significant mega-trend of our times.”
Zhu has been tweeting a lot about mosquitoes this year, offering tips on how to effectively get rid of them, much to the amusement of cryptocurrency aficionados who follow him on social media.
Fans immediately called attention to Zhu’s recent obsession and made jokes about “mosquito” standing for an unidentified cryptographic idea.
Overall, Zhu is anticipated to keep supporting ground-breaking initiatives and projects. Early in 2022, Three Arrows Capital revealed it had organized a private token sale for Near Protocol, an Ethereum rival. Major crypto-focused funds including Dragonfly Capital, Jump, Alameda, and others took part in the funding round, which raised $150 million to accelerate Web3 adoption. It is quite likely that Zhu will continue to look for and promote alternatives that deal with Ethereum’s fundamental problems given his earlier reservations about the platform.
