- From Cointelegraph (3-2023):
"Lu co-founded BitSE, the China-based firm that initially managed VeChain before it became a separate entity. Born and raised in China, Lu graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2002 with a degree in electronics and communication engineering. He got his first job in the tech industry in 2002 when he joined the IT company Netstar China, where he worked as a manager in charge of its Global Network Center segment.
The position provided Lu with valuable insight into the concept of data tracking, which he later applied when creating the VeChain protocol. At the time, the company was known for pioneering vehicle tracking technology in South Africa in 1994. He left the firm in 2005.
Lu then joined 3M China in February 2006 as an IT infrastructure manager, staying for three years before taking up the position of IT manager at Bacardi China. He worked at the spirits manufacturing company for about a year and then got a job at Louis Vuitton China as a chief information officer and organization and projects manager. He learned about blockchain technology while attending a Louis Vuitton tech seminar in 2013 and co-founded BitSE soon after. BitSE was initially involved in Bitcoin mining before it transitioned to blockchain development."
