When asked what the most important component of any entrepreneurial project is, I believe most people will answer: the team.

Ultrain is currently developing a prosperous community ecosystem, growing both at home and abroad. Ultrain’s “dream team” is at the core of this growth, with numerous innovative theories, extensive engineering experience, and a strong connection to global capital and busineses.

Ultrain was founded at the end of 2017 by three all-star business and technology leaders. They are Guo Rui, the former technical director of Alibaba’s security business group, Emma Liao Zhiyu, former managing director of Golden Brick Capital TMT, and Li Ning, head of IoT investment for Qihoo 360 and former head of Ant Financial’s blockchain team. Other core members joined soon after, such as Ultrain’s Chief Architect, Shen Yufeng, who is the former senior technical expert of Alibaba’s operating system “AliOS” and core architect Google Canada ChromeOS. Husen Wang joined shortly after as Chief Cryptographer, thanks to his experience as the former lead cryptographer at Ant Financial Blockchain.

Most recently, Samuel Xiao joined the dazzling team as Ultrian’s vice president of ecosystem and business development.


Samuel received his Master of Computer Science at Sun Yat-Sen University. He has been engaged in Internet investment and consulting for over a decade, with extensive experience in digital transformation, business model design, IT planning, architecture design and system implementation.

He served as Senior Consultant Manager for IBM’s Global Consulting Services, where he was responsible for end-to-end processes, from IT strategic planning to complex system implementation. Samuel was responsible for clients such as SF Express, Yuantong Express, China Mobile, Huawei and other large enterprises.

Samuel is also a former partner and CTO of the Green Pine Dream Capital, responsible for investment and post-investment management of corporate SaaS, AI and big data projects.

We are proud to announce that, as of today, Samuel has become a member of the Ultrain core team. His roll is dedicated to onboarding commercial applications to Ultrain and building a collaborative ecosystem. Samuel will work closely with the other five members of the core team to create a new business ecosystem, reshaping the trust boundaries of the business community through technology, and jointly realizing Ultrain’s ultimate dream — to create a programmable business society of the future.
