Yat Siu

Co-founder of Animoca Brands

Yat Siu is the co-founder and executive chairman of Animoca Brands, a global leader in blockchain gaming with the goal of providing property rights for virtual assets. He is a veteran investor and technology entrepreneur known worldwide for his leadership in blockchain technology and gaming.

Siu has become the pre-eminent investor in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain-based gaming, presented by its promoters as the next big thing in the global games industry. A vocal advocate of an open Metaverse, he has sold his backers a vision of digital property rights in video games, where players can own their in-game items as NFTs recorded via blockchain, earn as they play, and profit from trading with other players.

Under Siu’s able leadership, Animoca Brands transformed into a global leader in the delivery of digital property rights via blockchain and NFTs. The company also attained “Unicorn” status earlier this year.
