Shizhe Fan

I was born in 2002 in Shanghai, China and moved to California in 2010, where I went to school.

In 2020, when the pandemic started, I got bored and started social media, which got me into the creator economy and NFTs.

As I started trading and building NFT projects, I realized that there was a huge inefficiency in the NFT secondary market, so I founded Waterfall in order to solve NFT price discovery.
