Mr. Angus Lo
Some 10 years ago, as a pilot for Cathay Pacific Airways, Angus’ international connection saw him become an early advocate of cryptocurrencies. Convinced that they, alongside decentralised finance and the rise of NFTs, would have a major global impact, in 2021, he co-founded CoinUnited.io, Asia's largest cryptocurrency platform and NFT collector. Today, it is the region's largest Bitcoin ATM network, with operations extending across 12 Asian jurisdictions. It also maintains digital wallets for more than 10,000 cryptocurrencies, invests in blockchain start-ups and organises cryptocurrency educational activities. The largest NFT collector in Asia, CoinUnited.io manages a portfolio worth more than US$300 million, including Shocked Doge, one of the world’s most valuable digital assets. Established and headquartered in Hong Kong, CoinUnited.io’s 10,000 sq ft flagship store is located in the heart of Causeway Bay.
