Professor Yu Xiong

Co-Chairman / Chair of the Management Board

Professor Yu Xiong brings a wealth of experience and business minded success from previous endeavors to the board. The Professor holds a BSC in Computer Science and a PHD in Distributed Computing and Engineering, and has since become a Chartered Engineer. Xiong’s expertise in this field has led to his work being published in various much cited research journals and has amassed a wide-ranging network of peers in the industries of research, business and technology.

Research as an academic has led Professor Xiong to the heights of becoming a Fellow of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, as well as being the current holder of the position of Chair of Technology and Operations Management, in Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University, and the Chief Scientist of the China Block Chain Research Centre, in the Southwest University of Finance and Economics of China, and Chief Strategic Advisor to iFlytek.

Innovation is a key thread in what Xiong has dedicated much of his endeavors to, so the desire to turn his attention to cryptocurrencies is a natural progression and with this venture, he brings excitement and a new energy to the team.

Chair of the Board allows the influence to implement Xiong’s hopes to combine what he knows with what we know, as UKDE enters its next crucial stages of development as the company prepares to launch their new product to the market.

Kind enough to help us grow and develop, we are eternally grateful.
