About Wincent –


Wincent is a Fung Scholar from batch 06/07 from the Hong Kong Baptist University.


A former Ernst & Young auditor, Wincent was running his own hostel in Wan Chai when he recognized Bitcoin’s potential and began accepting Bitcoin from his hostel guests to settle payments.  Wincent is consequently a pioneer in this regard as he became one of the earliest merchants in Hong Kong to accept digital assets as an alternative to conventional money.

By 2016 Wincent had established significant mining businesses in China and formed strong relationships with Chinese OTC traders.  In November 2017—sensing the incredible market potential for digital assets here in Hong Kong—Wincent founded Genesis Block to boost digital assets’ standing and availability in one of the world’s premier financial centers.
