谷歌前员工创立xGoogler区块链联盟

三位前谷歌员工组建了xGoogler区块链联盟(以下简称GBA),这一社区将成为从业者进行区块链技术探索、开展对话的开放环境,能够汇集现任和前任谷歌员工分享想法并在区块链领域开展合作。

随着区块链热度的上涨,谷歌、摩根大通等巨头纷纷进入该领域,区块链人才也成为稀缺。

据Techcrunch报道,区块链是当今劳动力市场中增长速度第二快的行业,每个区块链开发商都有14个职位空缺。

一方面是区块链人才稀缺,一方面是巨头面临人才流失。为了区块链行业的高回报率,这批人才大多选择自主创业。此前,Overstock的CFO离职,将任职区块链初创公司。摩根大通区块链高管Amber Baldet也辞职投身区块链创业。对此,摩根大通方面表示,“Baldet以其卓越的才能帮助我们组建了如今的团队,我们感谢她的付出,也尊重她的创业决定。”

而国内的腾讯、阿里、小米都面临了区块链人才离职创业的情况。

为解决区块链人才需求问题,区块链联盟应运而生,这是前谷歌员工Hitters Xu,Daniel Wang和Andy Tian的创意,他们现在正在运营一些中国及其他地区重要的区块链项目。

这一团队由曾在谷歌工作过的区块链项目创始人、团队成员、投资者和顾问组成。GBA将作为谷歌员工开展区块链技术调查,进行对话和发展的协作空间。

Hitters Xu在区块链领域的履历十分出彩。作为前谷歌员工,他不仅是公共区块链星云的创始人,还是蚂蚁金融区块链平台的前董事。对于GBA的组建,他认为在古典互联网领域最有影响力的谷歌人,也将在区块链领域发挥重要作用。

另一创始人Andy Tian则表示:“从Android到AI,Google一直处于全球新技术的前沿,作为Google员工,我们可以扩大区块链对全球所有人的影响,为他们带来独特的体验。”

GBA也计划通过该社区,让前Google员工孵化出高质量的区块链项目。该社区目前活跃于旧金山湾区,北京和上海。他们希望让所有前谷歌人都能在此交流并孵化出新项目。

面对人才离职创业,前谷歌人通过建立沟通交流的社区,吸引谷歌人于此释放创意与活力。京东也与谷歌不谋而合。

为了吸引人才,京东于今年2月推出了一个名为“AI Catapult Accelerator(AICA)”的加速器项目,以扶持初创企业在区块链领域的业务。不过,京东严格控制入驻企业的活动,一旦发币立刻终止合作。此前京东已经终止了与Nuggets的合作。

Blockchain's popularity is soaring. Tech giants are moving into the field and blockchain expertise is in high demand. TechCrunch has reported that blockchain is second-fastest growing industry in today's labor market, with 14 job openings for every one blockchain developer.

To help address this demand for talent, three Googlers-turned-blockchain-entrepreneurs are starting a community to bring together current and former Googlers interested in the blockchain industry. This community will serve as a collaborative space for inquiry, dialogue and development regarding blockchain technology for Googlers.

The group, named xGoogler Blockchain Alliance (GBA), consists of blockchain project founders, team members, investors and advisors who once worked at Google.

GBA is the brainchild of ex-Googlers Hitters Xu, Daniel Wang, and Andy Tian, who are ex-Googlers that now lead some of the most prominent blockchain projects in China and beyond.

Hitters Xu, founder of Nebulas said, "Googlers who are prominent influencers in 'classic internet' can play important role in blockchain space.

Andy Tian, founder of GIFTO said, "Google has always been in the forefront of new technologies worldwide, from Android to AI.  As Googlers, we can bring our unique experiences to expand blockchain's influence, to everyone, everywhere."

The GBA's core members are:

Hitters Xu, blockchain pioneer in China and founder of Nebulas—a next-generation public blockchain. Hitters was previously part of the Search & Anti-Fraud team at Google, and would go on to found AntShares (NEO), and become the former director of Ant Financial's Blockchain Platform (Alibaba's financial arm). Since 2013, Hitters also founded BitsClub (the first blockchain and bitcoin community in China), ICO365 (one of the country's largest ICO platforms) and FBG Capital (one of the earliest crypto funds).

Daniel Wang, founder of Loopring—a decentralized exchange and open protocol. Daniel is a former Tech Lead at Google, co-founder & VP of Yunrang Technology, Senior Engineering Director at JD.com, co-founder & CEO of Coinport Exchange, co-founder & VP of Hygene Online, Senior Director & Blockchain Researcher of Zhongan Technology.

Andy Tian, founder & CEO of Gifto—a decentralized universal gifting protocol and serial entrepreneur. Andy is the CEO of Asia Innovations Group, a leading mobile entertainment group in Asia. He was previously general manager of Zynga China, and a Strategic Partnership Development Manager at Google, where he was responsible for bringing Android to Asia. He received his Bachelor and Master's degrees in computer science from MIT.

GBA aims to bring together ex-Googlers to advance each other's ambitions in the blockchain space. Blockchain at the moment is a hotbed of innovation, and is ripe for transformative ideas and breakthrough technologies.

Googlers, as some of the most innovative and forward-thinking people in the world, can play a big role in accelerating the success of blockchain. With GBA, these individuals now have a meeting point to share and build their ideas about blockchain.

GBA, through its network, also has plans to incubate high quality blockchain projects by ex-Googlers. The community is currently active in San Francisco Bay Area, Beijing and Shanghai. All ex-Googlers are welcome to join the community and help contribute to the future of blockchain.
