The Ladies of TOP Network — Introducing our femme fatales

At TOP Network, we are proud to have amazing women who are standing at the forefront of blockchain evolution. Rachel, Angelica, Rico, and Lynn are our “Ladies of TOP Network,” and are going to be the face of our project going forward.

So, without further ado, let’s introduce you to the ladies!

Rachel

Before joining TOP, Rachel had two hugely successful entrepreneurial experiences. The first startup received millions of dollars in financing within a year, and Plug and Play selected the second one as one of the top 20 ventures in Silicon Valley with $20 million in funding commitment.

She is immensely popular in social media because of her experience in the industry and siren-like singing skills.

Q1:When did you first get in touch with blockchain?

2017. When Bitcoin and other and other emerging blockchain projects were becoming immensely popular. In Silicon Valley, there were (and still are) a lot of well-established technology giants and capital funds who were looking to invest in this field. Long story short, I was bitten by the bug, and couldn’t help but join the blockchain family.

Q2:Why choose to enter the blockchain industry?

Being a part of the Silicon Valley, you need to be up-to-date with the latest technologies. In the beginning, it took a certain amount of time to understand the ins and outs of blockchain technology. After my analysis, I felt that this technology will be immensely valuable in the future.

Furthermore, my friends who previously bought BTC and invested in blockchain projects have benefited from it and feel that this is also an excellent investment. So I started investing in the blockchain industry with the money that I earned from my previous entrepreneurial ventures.

Later, many technical gurus, doctors, and entrepreneurs around me wanted to do something in this industry. So, we collectively worked on a project about the application of blockchain technology named “Applications of the Internet” in early 2018. If you want to listen to my other stories, please keep in touch with TOP Network.

Q3: What advantages or disadvantages has the blockchain brought to you?

The advantage is that I have met many smart people who have ideas, creativity, and passion for changing the world. It also challenges me to improve my thinking and ability continually. For example, I have greatly improved my ability to work internationally and collaborate with global resources.

For the disadvantages, well, I am a little uncomfortable sharing this. I have had to experience a lot of failures. But, as an entrepreneur, how can I succeed without experiencing a bit of ups and downs? It’s part of life.

Angelica

Angelica studied in Spain, where she got her Spanish major. Over there, she immersed herself in the vibrant culture and became enthralled by the wildness of Flamenco and the thrill of bullfighting. Plus, she is quite a foodie!

Q1: What is the most memorable thing you have experienced in the blockchain industry?

While I haven’t been in the space for too long, this industry changes literally every single day. So there are many unforgettable experiences, but the most memorable one was how the central government encouraged everyone to learn about the blockchain technology last year.

It was Programmer ’s Day on October 24. As soon as this news came out, the domestic blockchain market immediately heated up. My friends began storming me with questions like — “Are you in a blockchain company? Can you tell me more about it?”

This was so different from how the market was back at the beginning of 2019. Bitcoin was worth only 3,000 US dollars at the time, and many companies in the industry could not sustain themselves. There was so much pessimism in the market. The contrast between the two scenes was particularly strong, so it was quite emotional for me.

Q2: What do you think is the biggest value of Bitcoin?

First, Bitcoin is decentralized. Its original intention was to counter the current currency-centric issuance system in the world. It represents the entire blockchain and cryptocurrency market, which is why its rise and fall will affect the confidence of the whole market.

Secondly, its community-centric. A community where cultures and developers of various countries gather together because of their passion for Bitcoin. It could be argued that the price of Bitcoin is directly tied to this community’s sentiment.

Plus, Bitcoin is immutable, with a fixed upper cap, open-source, and transparent.

Q3: How did you explain your work to relatives and friends?

Most of my relatives and friends have heard of the blockchain, so I don’t need to explain it. It’s just that many people are still skeptical about this industry. However, I am quite confident in it, and hope that relevant laws and regulations can be improved as soon as possible to regulate some operations in the industry.

Rico

Rico graduated from the prestigious Purdue University with a major in chemistry and is a former Fortune 500 employee. She has an undying learning spirit, loves learning, and reading detective suspense novels.

Q1: Why did you choose the blockchain industry?

Maybe it ’s destiny. I never thought I could enter this industry, which is entirely unknown to me. It was just at the end of last year that our President proposed to develop the blockchain industry vigorously, and when I was looking for a new job, I found a company with vitality like TOP Network, so, why not? People should dare to try different things, right?

There are lots of careers that I haven’t contacted with so far. If I have an opportunity in the future, I will try them out.

Q2: I heard that you studied chemistry before. What is the relationship between chemistry and blockchain?

Not really. To be honest, they are two totally different fields. But the existence of everything has its truth. The invention of plastics benefited the entire industry and the world. Even now, people ’s lives are inseparable from chemistry. Although blockchain technology does not seem to be directly related to people ’s lives so far, but with the advancement of technology and society, blockchain will definitely change people’s lives in the future.

Q3: What changes do you think the blockchain will bring to our lives in the future?

I hope that freedom of speech can be truly realized. All user information will be safe and confidential. There will be no malicious attacks and defamation on the Internet. All your words and deeds can be recorded, and everything can be traced back and guaranteed.

Lynn

Lynn is an excellent Korean-speaker, having lived in South Korea for several years. She is a huge animal lover and is a member of the Little Animal Protection Association.

Q1: Who do you admire most in the blockchain industry?

Our boss Steve Wei. Steve, as a technical background, is tireless in pursuing technology. TOP’s investment in technology is evident to all employees, and the requirements for technical personnel are also very high. Plus, he is highly-dedicated and feels responsible for the employees and the company.

Q2: How has your life changed after entering the blockchain space?

Many people ask me what blockchain is. My family still feels that I am not doing business properly after I explained my career to them countless times. However, ever since our President mentioned blockchain technology at the end of last year and our central bank started working on the Digital Yuan, I feel that my career choice has been vindicated in my family’s eyes..

Q3: Do you think that the blockchain will have a significant impact on our future?

Yes. Going back 30 years, did you believe that the internet would be what it is right now? No, right? I feel that the blockchain will have a similar impact over the next few decades.
