Comment of the day, by Badpak :
JD is so much more than just an online e-commerce player. It is one of the market leaders in terms of drone delivery, it is the market leader in unmanned stores and is also going to open 1000 unmanned restaurants by 2020. It also has healthcare services, starting to expand their cloud services and supplies tons of restaurants and medicines. I could go on and on lolJD is a very complex company and will in the future be much more than just an e-commerce player.
