Wang Sicong, the son of Chinese billionaire and investor Wang Jianlin, made yet another splash in Chinese media this week for grabbing over 130 thousand RMB ($19,800 USD) in three days by answering twenty-five questions, covering a wide variety of topics from investment to his sex life on a Chinese online Q&A platform. The price for each question started at 3,000 RMB and has since surged to 4,999 RMB.

Spurred by the news, Fenda, the platform where Wang answered these questions, has received a boost in popularity just one week after their official launch on May 15.

Fenda, which means one-minute answers, is a mix between Quora and Reddit’s AMA, and is operated through a WeChat enterprise account. Answers are delivered via voice messages and are no longer than 60 seconds – hence the name of the service.
