To put it simply, Qiyu is a location-based elastic social networking service aiming to help people in the same area get connected. The app also encourages uses to transform their connection from online to offline with real-life gatherings, using it is like get started with an adventurous journey, you never know what’s gonna happen next, said Gao Cao who designed the product.

Qiyu launched the first version in early last December, as of now the service has more than 60,000 users while more than 13% of them are in Taiwan, which according to Gao Cao is quite an interesting thing. One of the reason, Gao said that is because there’s nothing similar in Taiwan.
