Asia is the world’s growth factory. Two of the fastest growing economies in the world at the moment China and India are in Asia.

It has been nearly 50 years since the Bangkok declaration that created ASEAN, which has emerged as one of the fastest growing economic blocs is projected to enjoy a GDP growth rate of 3-8% over the next 5 years. It is in this economic centre of the world, in it’s very heart that BlockShow Asia 2018 will be taking place as a part of the Asia Blockchain Week between November 27 – December 1 at the Marina Bays Sands Hotel.

Maturity has Set in the Blockchain Scene

In the previous 2 years, Blockchain has grown to become a nearly trillion dollar market, however valuations have fallen sharply and the market has bled nearly US$ 200 bln. The fall in the cryptocurrency markets has meant that hot money has been expunged out of the system and only serious players are left.

The maturity of the market also means that institutional investors, governments, corporates and technology companies have also gained the understanding that cryptocurrencies and the blockchain are here to stay and are not just a passing fad. Even the World Bank is getting on the Blockchain bandwagon and has hired an Australian Bank to create, allocate, transfer and manage bonds on the Blockchain.

World Bank’s Treasurer Arunma Oteh told India’s Mint newspaper,

“Since our first bond transaction in 1947, innovation and investor satisfaction have been important hallmarks of our success with leveraging capital markets for development.Today, we believe that emerging technologies, equally offer transformative, yet prudent possibilities for us to continue to innovate, respond to investor needs and strengthen markets.”

At the Right Place at the Right Time

We are bringing BlockShow Asia 2018 to the financial hub of Asia at this crucial time for Blockchain industry to facilitate networking, marketing, investing, technology sharing and friendly interactions. While last year BlockShow Asia got the ball rolling and attracted over 1500 attendees and 66 sponsors as well as 67 international speakers of high calibre such as Patrick Dai from Qtum, Brock Pierce from EOS, David Orban, Simon Dixon from Bnktothefuture, Mike Kayamori from Quione, Zoe Adamovicz from Neufund, Alexander Ivanov from Waves.

This year all efforts are on to outdo that memorable event by bringing together 4000 Blockchain related attendees to reinforce our bonds and build trust among the community. The event last year also hosted a startup competition whose winners Bancor and Electrify Asia managed to raise more than US$ 200 mln combined. We believe that our efforts since 2016 in Asia and elsewhere are now bearing fruits as the technology is taken more seriously by both governmental and corporate sectors than ever before.

This year the event will span five days and is an opportunity to take a step towards Blockchain maturity. Expected at the event are entrepreneurs with real track records, investors, talents, traders, developers and startups. Asia Blockchain Week is an experience comprised of 2 big conferences that enrich your network with relevant investors, partners and customers,

Workshops that seek to answer questions of importance, A Hackathon to scout for talents, A start up competition to locate interesting new projects plus every day parties to relax and network.  On the final 5th day of the event enjoy an “Open Doors” day that feature all blockhain hubs, accelerators and companies in Singapore.

Partnership that Strengthens Bonds

Asia Blockchain Week’s strength lies in the strong bonds of partnership and the support the conference is receiving, especially from the local community. Partners for the event include LongHash, a platform for accelerating the development and understanding of blockchain technology as well as ACCESS, (Association of Cryptocurrency Enterprises and Startups), Singapore which is involved in advocacy, education, engagement in the cryptocurrency sphere and is a non-profit focussed on the use and development of digital currencies and blockchain technologies.

Other partners include SFA (Singapore FinTech Association) and SUSS (Singapore University of Social Sciences). In fact, The Future of Token Economy Conference at SUSS will also be joining Asia Blockchain Week. The strong advocacy, research and communal background of the partners ensures that Blockchain tech gets the push it needs in the region.

Let’s Take a Step Forward for Blockchain Maturity

Blockchain as a technology can no longer be ignored and there is hardly anyone whose life won’t be touched on this planet by its unlimited potential. BlockShow Asia 2018 at the Asia Blockchain Week is your chance to contribute to the maturity of Blockchain in its critical evolutionary phase.

Blockchain is getting mature and you can witness it for yourself.  Whether you want to become a sponsor or to buy a ticket, now is the time to participate in BlockShow Asia 2018 and rub shoulders with the best, at the best Blockchain industry conference in the world.
