Read Excerpts below:-
Jin Yu did so much and gave so much to everyone without expecting anything in return. He facilitated funding some of my last band’s music with new blockchain tech even though we weren’t popular enough to warrant his attention, he just believed in us. He was the opposite of what people think when they imagine the stereotypical “Hollywood” dude. We shouldn’t have lost him. In a world of douchebags and conspiracy theorists, why did it have to be someone who was doing actual good?.
Tl;dr The beginning of July he was a healthy dude and, in what seems like overnight, we got the news that he was in an induced coma and on a ventilator for the bug. It’d been a couple of weeks and everyone was hoping he’d pull through, but today I got the message that he didn’t make it.
This isn’t political, conspiracy theories or trying to prove whose ideologies are right…these are real people, their lives and the lives they’ve impacted. I won’t go into the list of things that most of us know we’re supposed to be doing to protect others and ourselves, because you know that by now. The science is sound and we’re learning more as time moves on. Please please please do those things, they’re not big asks in the big picture.
I would rather be overcautious than lose someone like Jin Yu. And I hope that you don’t have to lose someone to believe the science and do what, somewhere deep inside, you know you should be doing.
RIP Jin Yu, I hope there is a calm where you are now. You deserved better and anyone that knew you are better because of you.
