Tu majored in Information Technology in his college days, which led him to crypto early. Amazed with the power of decentralization, Tu first got into the market in early 2017. Since then, he knew that this was going to be his career. With a background in digital marketing, Tu started creating social channels to help educate people about crypto in 2019. He soon has gained huge followings on different social platforms such as Telegram and Discord.
