Lessons From Building RinggitPlus, Why Crypto Fund Management, And What Lies Ahead for Halogen Capital

Hann Liew and Lucas Ooi are co-founders of fintech firm Jirnexu, the company behind RinggitPlus, and after 11 years building the company, they left their executive leadership roles in July last year. A few weeks later, along with a third co-founder Ng Moon Ho, the former director of operations at RinggitPlus, they announced their next chapter in entrepreneurship - Halogen Capital - a digital asset fund manager.

Halogen has a full Capital Markets Services (CMS) licence from the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) to manage digital assets such as cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and tokenized assets, and using the unit trust fund structure, they launched their Shariah Bitcoin Fund last year and very recently soft-launched their Shariah Ethereum Fund.

We speak to Hann and Lucas about the transition from Jirnexu to Halogen, how building a startup the second time differs from the first time, why they have ventured into Digital Assets and crypto space, and the potential ahead for this venture.
