Jack Ma said Alipay’s independence from Taobao was an imperfect but correct decision. Its story of development not only mirrors Jack Ma’s transformation from a start up beginner looking for an angel investment to an entrepreneur who values independent business, but also traces all the steps of innovation and experimentation of the Alipay team – looking ahead and fearless as their leader Jack Ma. When the fast-growing internet market has cultivated mighty participants in the industry such as Wechat and JD.com, Alipay is urged to think hard about how to get ahead. With the launch of Alipay, Ant Financial has crossed borders in recent years – bringing to market products that are suitable for the average person, such as Zhima Credit and small loans for rural areas, so that they could gain access to the financial world; it exported a payment technology to keep track of the long-term development on the globe. Admirable, however, is that in the ever-changing environment, it has never lost the original dream that everyone should enjoy the convenience of the internet.
