Q&A with Henry Wang!
What is it about CLOUT that made you decide to be part of the team?
The traditional style of the World’s media is central, controlled and regulated. It is old and outdated.
CLOUT is a revolution since its content will be based on crypto and blockchain technology one of which will reflect real content, real meaning, and the real insight.
I see that Clout will be helpful to the entire community globally.
How do you feel being appointed as CLOUT’s Advisor- the one and only person from your country?
It is an honour to be part of this revolution. CLOUT has a whole entire team combined of 13 different nationalities so each Advisor can actually oversee and assure that the content is not just focusing on or from somewhere like the USA. To have a well-balanced mix of people as the advisors assure the integrity of the content – one that is not biased.
What is your message for the people of the world?
Currently there are 3 billion people who are not connected through the centralized banking system.
My belief is through Mesh and Blockchain, we can connect those unconnected and bank those unbanked, and with CLOUT as our Blockchain home or community, we can finally unite the world into one.
