I yesterday watched Connie Chan’s video about business models in China. I was surprised by how different Chinese apps are from western ones. The ideas of monetizing live karaoke, selling books by chapters and words, and selling themes for apps were totally new to me.
My interest in Chinese tech keeps increasing over time. I wish I had the capacity to learn Mandarin. I have always been saying if I didn’t have to learn German I would’ve studied Mandarin. It is also an insurance policy for a future where China starts competing globally and changes the course of tech.
