The largest and most authoritative blockchain event held in the ASEAN region, “ASEAN Blockchain Davos Forum” was held on 2-3 December 2018 at the Golden Horse Palace in Kuala Lumpur.
This large-scale industry event was jointly sponsored by the ASEAN Economic Research Institute and the ChainAngel Group and Battlechain. It also received professional supervision from the China Electronic Commerce Association, the China Electronic Commerce Association Internet Finance Research Institute, and the China Electronic Commerce Association Financial Technology Research Institute.
The organizer, ASEAN Economic Research Institute, is a famous blockchain research center. It was founded by the world’s top blockchain technological experts. Since its establishment, it has recruited research talents from universities and institutes from home and abroad. The purpose is to explore groundbreaking, industry-specific applications of blockchains and its industrial implications.
The ASEAN Blockchain Davos Forum invited global blockchain leaders, investment agency experts, scholars, more than 200 blockchain media outlets and 3,000 people to attend this forum.
Experts at the conference discussed more than 20 topics, through presentations, workshops, and round-table discussions. Experts shared their views on the physical operation of blockchain, future prospects, and strengths.
“Blockchain is the wave that’s taking over the world. It represents a technological revolution, and is sweeping across all walks of life. Countries are even incorporating it into national security strategies,” said Chairman of the ASEAN Economic Research Institute, and founder and CEO of Monspace Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai while expressing her views on blockchain at the opening ceremony.
Lai also gave an example: “Zug of Switzerland has won the reputation of “Encryption Valley” for a large number of blockchain projects. Dubai is planning to become a blockchain government in 2020, hoping to use blockchains and smart contracts to bring change to all walks of life. The future prospects of blockchain cannot be underestimated,” said Lai.
When talking about hosting the blockchain conference in ASEAN, Lai explained that in recent years, ASEAN countries have gradually embraced blockchain and its related industries. The world sees ASEAN’s openness and potential for emerging industries; so it is hoped that hosting a large blockchain event in ASEAN will open up greater possibilities for cooperation in the region.
“ASEAN is one of the most active economic regions in the world. In recent years, the economy has taken off. Many emerging economies in the world are gradually moving their attention to ASEAN. For example, China has gradually introduced the most cutting-edge blockchain technology into ASEAN, vigorously promoting collaboration between China and ASEAN in this industry,” Lai said.
“We hope to build an international platform for collaboration in blockchain technology, gather industry experts to discuss its application, and promote international cooperation and development.”
For the largest blockchain forum in the ASEAN region, organizers carefully planned a series of topics related to blockchain and its related industries. Guests delved deep into topics including blockchain development trends, new opportunities for industry developments, blockchain theory, decentralization thinking, entity application, future trends, development and risks.
During the two-day forum, blockchain experts, scholars and investment experts from various countries discussed topics about the use of blockchain at the national level, through topics such as “China’s Blockchain Development Policy” and “Blockchain Development Policy in Hong Kong and Malaysia”; there was also a talk on “the application and value of blockchain in enterprises”. Financial experts discussed Blockchain Exchange Strategy, Blockchain Wallet and Quantitative Investment, there were also thought-proviking topics such as Blockchain Thinking and the Blockchain Pass Economy. .
Due to overwhelmingly positive response, the organizers have decided to continue hosting large-scale forums, gathering the world’s top experts to accelerate the innovation of blockchain through professional collaboration and information exchange.
