Q&A with Professor Loh
Q: What makes ArcadierX different from other projects?
The unique selling point of ArcadierX is literally the “X-factor”. More than just a compelling business model for the coming ubiquitous online marketplaces, ArcadierX seems to be able to pull it all together through a superior configuration of tokenized offerings.
Q: Why did you choose to join ArcadierX as an investor/advisor?
Actually it may be some sort of a coincidence. I was a panel speaker at a blockchain summit on ICOs. Arcadier’s management team happened to be there. I guess there was some “chemistry” of convergent thinking and then the “physics” of getting together happened. So I came on board.
Q: What do you love most about the ArcadierX team?
The team obviously has the necessary experience and expertise. What struck me most is that they are real people and down-to-earth. In fact, they are so committed and passionate they sometimes forget to eat! In my first visit to the humble premises of Arcadier to meet the management team, it was almost 3pm and they seemed to have forgotten to eat lunch. We walked to the nearby open food court and discussed business while gobbling down some food.
Q: What’s a random fact about you?
I read the news a lot, almost every free minute of the day. It’s like devouring the news. Maybe this is because I get quite a bit of media calls to comment on all sorts of business issues, as part of my job, almost every other day, so I have to be always on my toes.
Q: What is your view on the bear market?
A bear market is really a great way to separate the wheat from the chaff – good companies will prevail. For these companies, things will go up. I like this famous poetry line: “O Wind, If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”
