Panel Discussion: The “Hunks” of Blockchain on their own POVs on Blockchain after 10 years!
By attending the BIT conference in Okada Manila last Sunday, we became familiar with local crypto exchanges. We were able to identify some existing Blockchain users and projects as well as its connection to the mainstream media. We also got the chance to network with other blockchain enthusiasts. We believe that Blockchain will be the definitive technology come the 2020 decade. It will surely be a catalyst for good governance in our country (as described in the book that we’ve won), but we should lit the fire on how local businesses adapts to it to be able to push for this.
Looking forward to more of this kind of event in the Philippines. Credits and more power to the organizer, Asia Token Fund. It is through events like this that individuals gets to understand more what Blockchain is all about. Until BITS2020!
