NOIDA ( — Alibaba might be preparing for a comeback in China after a regulatory crackdown and some controversies saw the firm fade from the spotlight in late 2020. However, the firm plans to return to being the top player in Chinese markets.

In a recent CNBC interview, Alibaba co-founder Joe Tsai was optimistic, asserting that the e-commerce giant was ready for a resurgence.

Moreover, the news is positive for Alibaba shareholders and could have intriguing implications for Sui, a blockchain project with deep ties to the company’s cloud division.

Tsai’s bullish outlook stems from a belief in Alibaba’s internal restructuring success and the immense growth potential within China’s expanding e-commerce market. The Alibaba executive acknowledged rival companies’ threats but claimed the firm would learn from their tactics.

This signals a renewed sense of innovation within the company that could extend to its blockchain endeavors.

SUI Price Could See Gains Of Nearly 50%
