Da Hongfei worked as CEO of IntPass Consulting from 2005 to 2013. He left in December 2013; in January 2014, he founded NEO. The same month, he also founded Onchain.
He taught himself how to code before founding NEO in 2014.
Da Hongfei has said on-record that he welcomes regulation of cryptocurrency mining and trading, as the danger of becoming a victim of fraud is a problem that is holding the potential of the technology back. He has described the current financial system as "outdated, if not broken," and believes NEO will be able to benefit Chinese consumers in a broad sense.
Da Hongfei attended South China University of Technology in the Guangdong Province of China from 1997 to 2001. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Technology and English.
