Love him or hate him, Softbank's Masayoshi Son is shaking up Silicon Valley and global investing. He once lost more money than anyone has ever lost in history, but has since recovered to make some of the world's most successful tech investments.

Altair That’s really unfortunate. I do not understand the racism between these two countries. I’m Korean, and I’ve always had the utmost respect and appreciation for the culture. I’m a huge fan of Japanese lit - favorite author being Osamu Dazai. And in fact, I recently had the most incredible privilege of visiting Japan, and I loved every minute. The people there were incredible. Hard to imagine that there are those who harbor negativity.
Bitcoin is not a scam. It's (arguably) over-hyped and overheated, but its technical and fundamentals are solid.
I won't recommend anyone to invest in it though, it was not designed as instrument for investment.
In India he made investments in Flipkart (similar to Amazon)(sold to Walmart)(3 times return on investment), he made investments in Paytm (e wallet company)(according to me will lose the race to WhatsApp payment in future or an e wallet called tez (Google co.), And oyo room (cheap hotels)(the founder is even back by Peter Theil...(I don't have opinion abt it because if u wanna book hotel u got lots of options to choose from so I am skeptical abt it)
This dude bought Sprint, ran it into the ground, achieved 1/10th of the success of John Legere over at T-Mobile and now is bailing out his failures and selling to Tmo. If he is a 'great businessman' we certainly havent seen it here in America.
If you use uber in the USA, if you own a smartphone, laptop or Ipad, the chip inside is produced by ARM, if you shop on amazon, most items are ordered from suppliers on Alibaba and Alixpress and then branded for the American market..In America today, if you want to efficiently coordinate teamwork on projects to move quickly, you use the app Slack..So Uber, ARM, Alibaba (which is also the tech company with the biggest Tech IPO EVER in the US) and last we have Slack. Americans are using his products, most are simply unaware.
Actually, he's ancestors were Han Chinese, then they moved to Korea, after that, he's grandfather moved to Japan. He was bullied in school because of his identity, so his father, who got rich by making sake, sent him to U.S. when he was 16. He went back to Japan in 80s and became a real Japanese by law.
