About Me

About Me

Hello! I’m Terry Jin, a startup founder and astrophysicist based in London, UK. I have a passion for creating tech-based startups and have created been working in the space for over a decade. During my PhD in Cambridge, I founded Blue Gravity Studios in 2019 which is a game development studio that focuses on developing high-quality in-house titles as well as working closely with our partners to produce industry-leading titles.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Experience

2019 - Current
Founder - Blue Gravity Studios

Self-funded and designed video game: (https://littlesim.world/) with production cost of ~ $1.0M USD.  Received multiple funding offers from major game publishers and VCs in the seed round with valuation ~ $5m. Steam release EST Q4 2023.

2013 - 2018
Founder - Bitcore Capital

Algorithmic trading with MCMC random walk techniques and USDT arbitrage with focus on alternative investments. Generated approximately $5m in personal compensation.

2011 - 2013
Founder - Virtual Ventures

Adopter of an early form of NFTs used for eSport focused games. Invested in a diversified portfolio of online assets with strong ROI returns.

Education

2021, University of Cambridge
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD, Astrophysics)

Research on dark matter cluster simulations using a modified multidimensional K-S statistic. By using novel Bayesian inference MCMC techniques it was possible to measure the selection function of the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager interferometer.

2013, University College London
Master of Science (MSci, Astrophysics)

Masters degree with specialisation in planetary nebula, advanced cosmology and quantum theory. Published works on spectrometry integration of HERSCHEL data.

2012, University College London
Bachelor of Science (BSc, Astrophysics)

Emphasis on mathematical methods and specialisation in astrophysical processes, cosmology, astronomy and general relativity.

Main Interests

Startup Theory

Every success, while unique, follows a blueprint with an underlying ruleset that can be reliably reproduced. This is how many startup founders (myself included) are able to build valuable startups that succeed iteratively in rapid succession. 

Technical Founder

My academic work specialises in dark matter cluster physics using Bayesian statistics with an emphasis on random walk processes. My bias towards tech-focused startups derives from my belief that it is the most efficient way of driving growth.

Project Management

Project management is one of the greatest weaknesses of startups. It has been one of my priorities to achieve optimal workflow structure as it is the simplest and most cost efficient way of dramatically improving productivity.

Game Development

Hardcore gamer. I reluctantly admit that I've played almost every mainstream PC/console game since the SNES days. 5000 hours of DOTA, roughly. Link to my Steam page for anyone who wants to invade on Elden Ring ~

Game Design

I create design documentation for  my own launch titles as well as supporting many other indie and blockchain studios. I always emphasize authenticity and originality as those are the absolute priorities when creating a new IP.

HR / Recruiting

One of my passions has been team building as I strongly believe the success of a startup is fundamentally dependent on the strength of each member and is significantly more important than product.
