Pony Ma is one of the richest people on the planet. He created Tencent, China's tech colossus and one of the ten largest companies in the world. But few signs in his early years suggest that he would become such a success. Video by Vicky Feng and Lulu Chen

For those uneducated american insisting that Tencent only succeed because they copy facebook, try sending money , or ordering food delivery, or even hire a cleaner for your apartment from your FB app, can you do that ?? Lmao NOO!! WeChat is 100x times better than you normies will ever experience. Oh and also, FB was banned in 2013, and when they were banned, FB's market share in China is already niche and non existent

Tencent has already earned a lot from the western market, they invested in many companies such as Ubisoft and Activision Blizzard. Tencent is also the owner of Riot and Epic Games, which means the famous esports game LOL and the new hot one Fortnite all belong to this penguin. Before the Wechat changed the game, Tencent was fed with online game business, there were 300 million players of their FPS game CF, and many million players of DNF, these 2 games still making billions of RMB a year after 10 years since they came out in Korea and bought by Tencent. Now it's making a game platform called WeGame which is aiming at PC game markets ruled by Steam, in fact, I just bought the PC version of Monster Hunter World with only tranditional Chinese in Steam which still requires a day to unlock, while WeGame users bought the game with a price like 60% of Steam or even lower, were able to play the game 9 hours ago with simplified Chinese.

This is what a company should do, cooperate with the local government, unlike western companies, they think that they are above the local government until they got smacked hard in the fact and get their butt kicked out of china. You are a company not an NGO Your bussiness is to make money not to virtue signal Your politic is not above National ideology or the government Western companies that refuse to follow the law will learn the hard way.

'Pony' was more like a nickname for him in his early days. I believe he now refers himself as Ma Huateng, direct translation from his Chinese name

You have a decent point about their tech and services, but I think the major differences are still access to the market and distribution channels. It sounds like protectionism, but I can't think of any other efficient way to control/censor information flow. :)

Tencent owns: 100%league of legend Minority of epic game(fortnite) 100%clash of clan 25% Bluehole(Pubg) minority of Activision(COD) and more but I can’t remember. As a company earns 50 billions in three months, what’s the point for it to steal your information? What important information do you have? Like which kind of porn you watched?

caulfield (3 months ago)
+Yonoume What do you mean by "without a doubt it is a institutional property"? Also, as far as I know, Cambridge Analytica acquired data through surveys using facebook profiles. The controversy was due to how the survey takers were never told how their data was going to be used. Facebook did not, as far as I've heard, just give them information.
Yonoume (3 months ago)
Like what? specifically? After the controversy over Facebook exploitation of User Data, they provided the Cambridge Analytica with a gargantuan amount of Information that they can use, without a doubt it is an Institutional Property, but what if those were given to something more influential?

Lol no it isn't have you used WeChat? I can order food on my phone and simultaneously order a taxi to get there, when that's done i can go to the restaurant, scan my QR code on the phone and the food is already done. Then i can just pay at the table im sat by scanning the QR sticker they put down, it's possible to actually do this without any human interaction if you wanted to. A friend couldn't pay for the meal? No problem I can pay for it, they can then pay me back all through the same app.

Benjamin Rosen (3 months ago)
Yes, and the result is that China has some of the largest and most successful tech companies in the world, capturing hundreds of billions of dollars of value and massively adding to the technological development of the country. China is following Japan, Taiwan, Korea (Asia) and Europe before it by using protectionism combined with export incentives to rise to the top of the global value chain.

Learn Chinese if you want to make Chinese money. Westerners are hypocrite
MrMentalSoul (3 months ago)
The Chinese rarely have ideas or innovations of their own. Every other smartphone, for example, that comes out of China is a blatant "clone" or "knock-off" of another company's product.

One of the most retarded statements ever coming from someone who i assume went to basic schooling and exposure to internet age ease of information. Motherfucking moron, it's the chinese who invented the pre-requisites that led to european colonialism which eventually led to renaissance and industrial revolution. Firearms, magnetic compass, paper, relatively meritocratic national testing system. You can name so many, why are people still so remarkably stupid despite the ease of access in information nowadays.
