Hi, I am founder and CEO of CoolBitX, Michael Ou.
I’m proud to say that my family’s heritage is heavily rooted in traditional banking security. Over 20 years ago, my father founded Smart Displayer, a listed Fintech security company that specializes in producing secure bank cards for companies like Apple, Visa, Mastercard and American Express. The company has sold over 10 million units since 2002 and holds 30 patents.
I discovered Bitcoin during an MBA lecture in 2013. Being unfamiliar with blockchain and cryptocurrency, I was immediately intrigued by its design and its ideology. I could see the purpose and the potential of this technology and wanted to integrate myself into the community. I quickly got into contact with some friends at a consulting firm to explore all the possible opportunities and that is how CoolBitX came to be.
