Cyberport President: Hoping Hong Kong Can Take a Step Forward in Launching a Cyberport Wallet

Roger Lee, the President of Cyberport, stated that since the government issued a virtual asset policy declaration at the end of October last year, more than 180 Web3 companies have built the entire ecosystem, and the number of companies continues to grow at a healthy pace. Most of the companies focus on application areas such as financial services and entertainment, with over 20 companies engaged in Web3-related technologies like data analysis and over 10 blockchain infrastructure companies.

Lee also mentioned that although most of the newly established companies in Cyberport are from overseas, many of them are Chinese. He expressed that although Hong Kong’s digitalization process is not as advanced as other countries or regions, he hopes Hong Kong can take a step forward, such as launching a Cyberport wallet, which he believes will be a great opportunity. Regarding the metaverse, Lee believes that although it is not as hot as last year, many applications have merged gaming and technology, with many users participating. The ebb and flow also have a lot to do with the current financing environment. However, for him, it is currently more about returning to reality, consolidating the entire market, and investors can use reasonable prices to invest in truly capable startups.

We found that 99% of mainstream users give up at the first step, so simplifying this process is crucial.

According to Suhail Kakar, the creator of the DeSo app Onboard, the problem starts even before that. Users often avoid taking the first step because they need to familiarize themselves with blockchain, smart contracts, and wallets before registering.

Refers to the situation where two blocks pointing to the same parent block are generated simultaneously, and some miners see one block while other miners see the other block.

Generally, as miners on one chain become lucky and that chain grows, all miners will switch to that chain, and the fork will mathematically resolve itself within about four blocks.
