Fenbushi Capital Announces Changes in Management Team

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JANUARY 15, 2018 — Fenbushi Capital, one of the first and most active blockchain-focused venture capital firms in the world, announces that General Partner Vitalik BUTERIN will be transitioning to a new role as Advisor. Dr. Feng XIAO and Bo SHEN will remain as General Partners.

Commenting on the transition, Vitalik says, “I am proud to have worked together with the Fenbushi Capital team to support a large group of talented entrepreneurs building out the global blockchain ecosystem. Since co-founding Fenbushi Capital in 2015, both Fenbushi and Ethereum have grown at unprecedented speed. As I believe that 2018 will be a year of action in the blockchain space, I will no longer be able to devote sufficient time to meet the growing demands of both Fenbushi and Ethereum. I look forward to continuing to support Fenbushi’s mission in my new role as an advisor.”

Bo SHEN, General Partner, says, “With Vitalik’s support, Fenbushi has built up its internal team capabilities with unparalleled expertise in blockchain technology, which in turn has allowed Fenbushi to be a strategic partner and close advisor to its portfolio companies, as well as a key opinion leader in the blockchain industry. Just as the name Fenbushi — which means ‘distributed’ in Chinese — implies, we have built a distributed organization at Fenbushi Capital that will continue to grow even as Vitalik devotes more time to Ethereum.”

Dr. Feng XIAO, General Partner, says, “We thank Vitalik for his invaluable help in building Fenbushi Capital to where it is today. Bo and I look forward to continuing our mission at Fenbushi with Vitalik as an advisor, as well as continuing our nonprofit work with Vitalik at Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, where he continues his role as Chief Scientist.”
