The SCB x Bitkub deal update: That is not the point.

Topp tonight reminded me: “Lots of people talking, nobody knows the truth.”

My truth

My truth is that Topp has been hustling since 2013. I have seen him and his ascension from zero to hero, with my own eyes…

My team recorded this video of Topp from my condo at The Address in Sathorn around 2018, this was probably one of the first interviews for his story in English.

The broken flywheel

Now let me tell you another truth… There are a lot of Thai billionaires out there. And I won’t bet the house on having them invest decent amounts with decent terms in your startup.

The point:

Another truth is that, across eCommerce, blockchain, esports, AI/robotics, agriculture, and energy: the technology adoption of the last 10 years and the next 10 years will create Thailand’s next 100 billion dollars of wealth, and some people gonna grab this value for themselves.

Conclusion:

We all need Bitkup to be Thailand’s first unicorn.
