introduce some of the best content produced by Chinese artists to
Jaunt’s global users. Today’s release is just a sample of the amazing
content that is yet to come. We look forward to bringing China’s best

in pushing our experiences to the rest of the globe, but it strengthens
our place as a platform with the best distribution strategy in the
industry.”
