At Ideanomics, we are all superheroes. What is your superhero name and superpower?
I do not have a superhero name, but each person is a teacher to me in some aspect. There is an old Chinese proverb: “When three are walking together, I am sure to find teachers among them. I will select their good qualities and follow them.” I believe superpowers come from everybody’s heart.
