The preparation and operations are still in the initial stages, so further details regarding this fund will be shared once they get an explicit confirmation.
Xunlei Limited was integrated under the law of the Cayman Islands as a limited liability company and operated its Chinese business through consolidated VIE companies, including Shenzhen Xunlei Networking Technologies, Co., Ltd. The Company offers a lot of products and services across cloud acceleration, blockchain, shared cloud computing, and digital entertainment to ensure that the users have the most secure, smartest, and most efficient internet experience.

The firm has submitted 95 applications for blockchain patents and thereby has rightly become the most productive companies in the industry. To date, ThunderChain has reportedly applied to over a dozen industries.
