Singapore Blockchain Week 2020 sets the stage with global blockchain experts and regulators

Singapore Blockchain Week 2020, hosted by Blockchain Association of Singapore (BAS) and co-organised by NexChange Group, will be held from 21 July to 23 July 2020. The anchor event – Singapore Blockchain Week Virtual Summit will take place on 21 July, followed by a series of meetups, workshops and investor events to be organised from 22 July to 23 July 2020.

 

The event has a stellar line-up of speakers, stalwarts in the global blockchain industry and regulators from various regions. Matt Sorum, the former Guns N’ Roses drummer and now partner at STHORM DLT-based project, will be kicking off the event with a jam session.

 

The highlights of the day’s agenda will include an opening speech from Mr Patrick Tay, Assistant Secretary General for NTUC and the Member of Parliament, and a fireside chat with Mr Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer for Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). The premier event will also witness Hester Peirce, Commissioner of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), also affectionately known in the blockchain community as “crypto mom”, share her insights during the summit. Prior to joining the SEC, Commissioner Peirce conducted research on the regulation of financial markets at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

 

Commenting on the premier blockchain event, Professor David Lee, Advisor to BAS commented, “Singapore is a burgeoning global blockchain node today and plays a vital role in advocating innovative technology such as blockchain to further enhance business transformations. It is encouraging to see that the Singapore Blockchain Week has attracted a diverse and strong line-up of industry leaders and speakers from all around the world to come together and exchange ideas.”

 

Top global speakers from major providers of blockchain solutions will, together with regulators and heads of industry associations, focus on how the blockchain industry is developing and responding to the global downturn caused by the coronavirus.

Flovtec provides liquidity to token issuers and digital asset exchanges. Events like the Singapore Blockchain Week allow the different components of the ecosystem to meet. Only together can we achieve our common goal of fair and more inclusive financial markets.”
