Three-Way Talks’ Blockchain Event Offers Insights Amidst COVID-19

The ‘Three-Way Talks’, a panel discussion on blockchain and the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on it, was held earlier this month, according to a press statement by ChainUP. The discussion focused on latest developments in the blockchain industry, as well as collaborative opportunities during the ongoing pandemic.

The list of speakers featured Singapore-based crypto exchange ChainUP Founder and CEO Zhong Gengfa, CEO of Japan-based CoinTube Shatt, and Co-Founder and CEO of digital news site Cointelegraph’s China arm Vadim Krekotin, the statement said.

Gengfa, who founded the cryptocurrency exchange software company ChainUP, spoke about the young startup’s focus on strengthening online branding and enhancing media cooperation, according to the statement. He also elaborated on the startup’s Enterprise Epidemic Support Plan, an initiative to battle the impact of COVID-19 on the company.

Further, in terms of future plans, he highlighted key areas of focus for ChainUP’s future plans. These included increased compliance with regulators and licensed institutions, and enterprise branding strategies for the platform’s crypto tech ecosystem (which includes one main brand, three sub-brands and five business lines).

He added that a third area of focus was the startup’s expansion efforts to over 10 key markets worldwide, in addition to ChainUP’s headquarters in Singapore and branches in Japan and Hong Kong.

Shatt discussed COVID-19’s impact on businesses, stating that it presented both a challenge and an opportunity, while acknowledging that the global health emergency has been a damper for businesses, the statement said. He added that the downtime was a valuable reprieve that companies can use to focus on future plans.

Additionally, Shatt mentioned that a market breakout is imminent post COVID-19. Apart from strategies for online business exhibitions, Shatt spoke about digital asset management platform CoinTube’s plans concerning family offices, wealth management companies, insurers, and financial planners, geared toward bringing higher quality fintech products into the market.

Krekotin, who co-founded digital news platform Cointelegraph China (CTC) and is its CEO, spoke about bridging global markets. He emphasized that CTC continues to provide local and international coverage despite the ongoing pandemic.

Krekotin also spoke about CTC’s recently-conducted online interview event ‘Focus,’ with early bitcoin investor Jeffrey Wernick. He added that Focus would continue to invite international participation in order to bring leading global voices into the Chinese market. CTC covers blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and fintech news.
