BlockShow challenge: how to make market bullish
BlockShow, an international blockchain conference, which will take place on Nov. 14-15 at Marina Bay Sands Expo in Singapore, says it changed its concept, moving from being a blockchain conference to becoming a Festival of Decentralized Technology.
The event will include nine conferences:
- Investments & Startups,
- Gaming & DApps,
- Money, Trading,
- Privacy & Security
- Marketing & PR.
The team notes that by expanding each topic to its conference, BlockShow strives to bring more innovative thought to the surface. With an expertly curated program for each topic, it will engender an atmosphere in which everyone in the audience is on the same page — spurring discussion and allowing for more rigorous exploration to take place.
Every year, BlockShow is hosting startup competitions, whose participants and winners — such as Bancor, a decentralized liquidity network; Status, a decentralized app startup; Shelf.Network, a decentralized auctioning platform; Electrify Asia, a retail electricity marketplace; and Humaniq, an Ethereum-based financial services app project — have raised more than $1 billion combined.
In 2019, in the framework of the new Festival of Decentralized Technologies, BlockShow says it will initiate a bullish boost for all startups. It will include the competition EXP20, which will have startups battle it out to impress investors, each standing the chance to win significant support — both financial and otherwise. The team notes that the participants of the Startup Boost Contest will have an opportunity to get meetings with private investors, a stage performance, as well as tickets and exhibition booths.
Addy Crezee, founder and CEO of BlockShow, said, “With altruistic approach, by supporting each other, we can boost the blockchain industry and turn it bullish.”
Moreover, the BlockShow Festival of Decentralized Technology will announce new conferences covering other specific aspects of the blockchain industry in the coming weeks.

Establishing a Trustworthy Environment: Blockshow Opens Pre-Registration
As blockchain technology celebrates its tenth year, it is clear the ecosystem has evolved significantly. Nefarious activity has long tarnished the sector, from those who favored bitcoin’s anonymity in illicit online marketplaces through to high-profile thefts from exchanges. What we began to see in recent years, however, is a new, pragmatic approach to these issues, one which reveals a more mature environment ready to engage with malicious actors as a matter of course.
There is a sentiment that 2018 was an underwhelming year for the market but it was, in many ways, also the most dramatic. Almost $1.7 billion was stolen through exchange hacks and scams alone. These figures, released by analytics firm CipherTrace, show a staggering increase from 2017 - exchange thefts increased by 300%, while there was an astounding 1,200% rise in exit scams and other ICO shams.
Despite an overwhelming uptake of KYC and AML procedures over recent years, it has clearly had little effect on curbing the appetite of thieves and scammers. This has led to the creation of analytics tools, such as Crystal, which are able to trace misappropriated funds and help take measures against the users of the wallet.
While the victims of these criminals will likely not agree, there has been a positive side to this increased threat. Not only does it reinforce the message that assets be stored locally, as opposed to an exchange, and that potential investors do their due diligence before investing in an ICO which makes unrealistic promises, but it has accelerated the progress of services which act to prevent, discourage and hold accountable those who would seek to continue pursuing criminal activity in this sector.
As we see this stride towards a self-managed ecosystem that develops its own tools for reactive security, it is most clearly shown in the large-scale public events where experts gather to discuss the more pressing issues of the moment. Blockshow, among the largest of such conferences, was quick to enlist Crystal to provide its risk-assessment technology for all attendees, marking a new stage in efforts to purge the blockchain ecosystem of would-be criminals.
At its 2018 Asia conference, Blockshow supplied every attendee with an innovative Blockchain analysis tool, Crystal. As part of a move to nurture greater security and accountability in the blockchain sphere, Crystal, developed by Blockfury, provides risk-scoring of cryptocurrency wallet addresses, allowing vendors and investors alike to easily identify an individual or company closely associated with malicious activity such as exchange hacking or exit scams.
In January, a major theft from Cryptopia exchange saw a demonstration of new security countermeasures unfold as Binance froze a portion of the stolen funds before they could be sold off. Introducing new techniques for tracking criminal activity promises a much more resilient and attractive environment for investors. One aspect where Crystal shows real promise, however, is in face-to-face interactions.
One of the most effective ways to connect with potential investors is to draw them in for face-to-face discussions and conferences like Blockshow offer the perfect environment to do so, attracting all kinds of funds on the lookout for the next big thing. Every fifth company to showcase their product to Blockshow walks away with a deal, bringing a much-needed sense of financial security in these uncertain times.
These interactions between companies and investors rely on many things, but trust is arguably the most important. With over a billion dollars raised so far, conferences play a major part in fundraising strategies. Introducing a risk assessment to these meetings brings a verifiable means to quickly quantify the trustworthiness of the individual or group, and could serve as a catalyst to the process.
As the market begins to stabilize once more, the conferences of 2019 are anticipated to offer a host of new, exciting ventures. Pre-registration for Blockshow Asia 2019 is currently open and an announcement about its latest initiative will be unveiled on March 7.

Power, Politics and Blockchain’s Bright Future: All The Insights From BlockShow Asia 2018
Power, Politics and Blockchain’s Bright Future: All The Insights From BlockShow Asia 2018
Bringing an international audience of 2800 people to Singapore, BlockShow Asia 2018 was the pinnacle of a year full of excitement, news coverage and heated debate. With around one hundred speakers, the conference came to a close in high spirits. In the wake of dramatic swings in the cryptocurrency market, which saw Bitcoin’s price tumble to a low of under $3700, the event, in partnership with Cointelegraph, was steadfast in focusing on how blockchain is maturing into something that affects our everyday lives. With a strong FinTech and political presence, it also introduced the many other worlds where blockchain’s seeds are starting to sprout - art, security, advertising, gaming, music, infrastructure, and more.
As the third and largest event of an unpredictable year, the huge success of this BlockShow has reinforced the importance of the global movement that has brought blockchain to prominence. It also saw the first ever example of conference tickets purchased through smart contract, a landmark in adoption, “I saw it worked out cheaper to purchase, I could do it easily through Metamask and I like the idea a lot because it provides some additional features, like privacy, or the ability to transfer to other people - these are things I hadn’t even considered before.” This came from Matt, a blockchain developer who purchased the very first ticket using Ethereum.
With such a diverse, not to mention large, selection of presentations, panels, venues and topics, it’s difficult to distill the BlockShow down to just a few of the most important or interesting points. The presence of a very special guest, Jim Rogers, co-founder of the Quantum Fund and Soros Fund Management, was symbolic for many, as one of the financial world’s most important figures gave his time to recognize the importance of blockchain. Furthermore, BlockShow regular Thomas Lee’s evaluation that “Blockchain could reduce costs to the global economy by $4 trillion,” should ring loud and true to those facing uncertainty over the current markets. For the sake of structure, let’s take a look at a few of the highlights of each day, and see what some of the speakers took away from the whole event.
On November 27th, Asia Blockchain Week, which BlockShow stood at the heart of, kicked off with Blockchain2Energy Asia at the center of attention, making its Asian debut by hosting a specialized programme focused on the push to create the digital grid. As one of the most promising blockchain applications currently being explored, BlockShow partnered with Blockchain2Energy Asia to help bring more attention to the amazing work they do, bringing people together to create a new model for power across the globe. Catching the attention of ASEAN members, power professionals and blockchain developers alike, it promises to carve a new model for worldwide energy distribution and payment, in a world where energy infrastructure is mostly outdated, often unsafe and largely inaccessible. As a first major step, this event alone has set us on course for huge advancements in the quality of life for many millions of people.
Though it followed Blockchain2Energy Asia’s rather revolutionary opening event, the first day of BlockShow’s conference at The Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre was no less impressive. In blockchain, no one thinks small. With a packed agenda, BlockShow CEO Addy Crezee kicked it all off with a rousing speech, accompanied by Mithril’s Jeffrey Huang, who created Asia’s most popular live streaming app. The rest of the day had a wide focus, bringing questions about artificial intelligence into the mix, where Dr. Ben Goertzel implored us to consider how we can “make AI a good thing for society,” while emphasizing that “the whole population needs to have control of AI!”, a direction that his company, SingularityNet are pushing forward. We also saw strong debate covering the exploration of a new, post-ICO direction for blockchain crowdfunding. With ICOs having recently become riddled with questions about their value to investors, it’s arguable that a new approach is in order to restore the merits of crypto-based investments.
Speech from TreeCoin tied well with bringing Singapore’s ecological focus to the forefront, as audiences got to grips with blockchain’s potential to help in transforming our entire ecosystem. The project is supported by the Paraguayan government and led by CEO Jörg Schäfer, otherwise known as ‘Mr. Green’, a veteran investor whose mission for the last two decades has been to demonstrate avenues for sustainable wealth creation. In its mission to create a sustainable natural environment, TreeCoin is creating an ecosystem within which participants will be able to directly invest into their afforestation project by purchasing land for planting trees while using the TreeCoin cryptocurrency, as a cheaper and better alternative for tracking transactions.
As the event was focused on the Asian market, recent news about China’s repeal of its cryptocurrency ban stood front and center of the afternoon’s discussions. On this, Huang noted that “China’s ban on crypto is a benefit to everyone else,” while others on the panel set forth further examination into the particularities of the Chinese market: “There’s not going to be a secondary market for a convertible cryptocurrency [in China].” said Calvin Cheng, followed by another panel member who stated “The only reason ICOs will always be banned in China is that the RMB is a non-convertible currency.”
While uncertainty is still rife when considering Asia’s crypto sentiment, leading experts gathered in a panel to discuss the mark that these restrictions have left on the economy as a whole. Furthermore, a later panel explored the potential for blockchain to ‘bring the Asian Tigers back’ - for economies such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and, of course, Singapore, crypto-optimism could pave the way to a new boom in their productivity and wealth. With a panel including Thomas Lee, co-founder of Fundstrat; Sinhae Lee, Founding Partner at GBIC and Block72 International Blockchain Consulting; Jason Fang, Managing Partner at Sora Ventures, Founder & CEO at Sora Foundation; Chia Hock Lai, President of Singapore FinTech Association (SFA), Chairman of Token Economy Association and Zing Yang, who sits on the Board of Directors at the Litecoin foundation, the debate was fueled by a certainty that, if blockchain is to thrive, it will be these economies that enable it to reach the next level of widespread adoption.
Meanwhile, on the Blockshow’s second stage, Motoyuki Odachi, Former Vice Minister of Justice of Japan, Vice President of Finance at Oyraa, Seth Melamed of Quoine and Yabo Cui, Advisor at Deloitte, gave real-world insight into the rapid adoption that’s been taking place in Japan. When it comes to new technologies, Japan is often heralded as the proving ground. Melamed and Cui gave exceptional insight into how interest in blockchain and cryptocurrencies have been propelled well into mainstream society, and how Japan is carving a path for an integrated ‘smart nation’ built on blockchain principles, recently forming the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Industry Association, made up of 16 licensed Japanese virtual currency exchanges. Other developments such as the use of blockchain in the gaming sector, or crypto’s role in transforming capital markets, saw out the rest of the afternoon, drawing a wide array of speakers such as Michael Gu, Founder of Boxmining; Sheree Ip, Board Member at Blockchain Australia, Jason Hsu, Crypto Congressman & Legislator of Taiwan, as well as the Head of Business Development, Asia for Cumberland, Justin Chow.
Cause for Celebration
Having wrapped up proceedings, the night concluded with a spectacular afterparty hosted by Mithril. With a view overlooking Marina Bay and featuring the gorgeous Singapore skyline and the Marina Bay Sands hotel sparkling across the water, it was clear everyone was in high spirits after a completely packed first day. With a number of other parties taking place simultaneously, the Singapore nightlife brought its own charm to boost the already hugely positive vibes that coursed through the crowds. With a later start to the second day, the auditorium was abuzz with people who formed new bonds the night prior, ready for another set of talks, panels and demonstrations about how we bring blockchain to maturity.
Without drawing too much from the day’s agenda, some notable panel members included Mastura Ishak, Programme Director for Blockchain at the Malaysian Industry-Government Group For High Technology (MIGHT), who implored the audience to reach out by stating “I can say that Blockchain has a lot of potential in Malaysia”; Aunchisa Tapanakornvut, Senior Officer, FinTech Department at Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand; Le Ngoc Guang, Ministry of Justice of Vietnam and Josephine Romero - the Philippines’ Presidential Advisor for Entrepreneurship and Advisor to the Chair of ASEAN-BAC. Having representation from political groups has always been a central concern of BlockShow. As governments grow more interested, for one reason or another, in blockchain technology, it is the part of the people to ensure it remains open and is not used as a tool of manipulation or oppression. This well-attended panel showed that there is a lot to do before governments will begin to reap the benefits of the technology but the movement is beginning to become more well-rooted and practical applications are being explored at every level, though this is true in some countries more than others.
As an overview, representatives from across Asia each showed that governments can play a supportive role, with Taiwanese legislator, Jason Hsu, stating “we wanted to make sure that our population can easily use bitcoin in their everyday life - to buy regular products, oil and so on We wanted to make it a lifestyle.” From India came a similar statement, “we have to use blockchain in our modern life, especially in factories and logistics.” Romero followed up to voice the Phillippine’s current outlook, “Agriculture has to use blockchain, while the second sector is tourism, and the third is finance.” It is clear that governments can act both harmoniously and maliciously in their use of blockchain, with Bobby Lee pointing out that “Governments worldwide will do more & more to suppress Bitcoin,” but, in Asia, it seems that the politics are leaning in favor of putting it to good use.
To quickly give a rundown of some notable speakers on this final day of BlockShow’s own event, Henri Arslanian of PwC, Haris Jafar of Ernst & Young, Mark Smedley, Vice President, Global Financial Services Industry Solutions at Oracle were just a few panel members in an incredibly revealing overview of the mass corporate move into blockchain adoption. In discussing the state of over-the-counter crypto trading, audiences were treated to both Jasper Lee, Head of eToro Asia and Luke Wagman, Chief Evangelist of CoinMarketCap, engaging with Justin Chow and others in a well-informed, eye-opening examination of just what’s going on across the trading world.
In the realm of Blockchain 4.0, there was one impassioned takeaway that stood out as particularly poignant, “Blockchain is technology, but it breaks the rules. Across the whole world, governments are always trying to control Bitcoin but it is impossible to do! Why? Because Bitcoin is international - Japan , USA, Europe. Can bitcoin go to 0? Absolutely not. The world won’t change itself; Blockchain 4.0 will change it!” While this roused applause from a lot of audience members, it stands out as fundamentally true, even in an environment of doubt, because, as Bobby Lee stated the following morning, “Digital assets are the future. Mathematics equals trust.”
While the BlockShow Oscars used to stand out as one of BlockShow’s biggest attractions, this year saw the launch of a new unique segment, EXP20. Streamed live from the conference, it saw 16 startups bring their blockchain-based businesses in front of a panel of venture capitalists, including JRR Crypto, Sora Ventures, TRIVE, BCI Fund, Blockchain I, Lune X Ventures, Trive, DYOR Capital, Plutus VC, Zenith Ventures, ZEOS Capital, Blockchain Founders Fund, HUOBI Lab,Fenbushi Capital. The aim was simple - pitch your business idea in five minutes, and hope it stands the scrutiny of some of the sector’s leading experts. Winning meant the support, connections and financial backing to bring the business to a global stage, but losing left the teams with nothing. Unlike the BlockShow Oscars, this model gave each startup the chance to win, regardless of how the others fared. Ultimately, it was HealthDex (an enterprise health data marketplace) and Diro, a platform to verify and share documents, which walked away with the financial backing and expertise from Blockchain Founders Fund, bringing them support that will no doubt soon propel them into the top tier of blockchain startups alongside the likes of Monero, IOTA, Dash and NEO.
Singapore: Open to Blockchain
On Friday, Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and Singapore Academy of Law unwrapped crypto regulation and examined the steps that are yet to be taken to give blockchain the legal backing necessary to make it the economic driving force it promises to be. This included a look at regulation from ICO standpoint as well as smart contracts and overall convergence of technology. Finally, our partners LongHash hosted a hands-on day of networking that opened Singapore’s most progressive blockchain hubs for all to see. Beneath the surface, it gives you the sense of being in an academic computer lab during the mid-20th century. There is an endless amount of research going on, all applied to different areas and each entirely focused on making the work a reality.
Singapore clearly stands at the forefront of blockchain innovation, and we’re sure all of our attendees will be returning home with a new outlook. The world needs blockchain more than it realizes, and without technological havens such as Singapore, we may never see the culmination of just what amazing things are possible. It’s incredibly sad to see everyone leave after living in the glow of one of the most fantastic conferences we’ve had the pleasure of attending - and that’s conferences, period, not just those discussing blockchain. BlockShow will, of course, be returning in 2019, and we’ve no doubt the landscape will look radically different once again. Until then, keep an eye out for announcements and keep working on building a better world with blockchain.

Why should I attend?
There has been a tendency for blockchain conferences to edge away from technology and instead focus on ostentatiousness. Blockchain is not about being showy, or hiring Lamborghinis to entice people into a ‘get rich quick!’ scheme. This not only creates a rift in the community but sends a message of frivolity to the wider world.
It is essential that such events place the technology front and center, inviting professionals and politicians to debate its very real significance at every level of application. That’s why BlockShow balances representation from both sides: the chaos of entrepreneurship and the much slower approach of lawmakers, with plenty of representation also coming from the middle ground.
Startups wishing to take their idea to the next level need look no further than BlockShow Asia. Not only does the event offer discounted rates for company delegates, but there is further incentive for those who wish to set up a booth and directly target investors throughout the event in the main exhibition hall.
With over a dozen prominent VC funds in attendance, it could be the perfect opportunity to attract the next financial boost and receive valuable guidance along the way. Some of the funds in attendance include JRR Crypto, Sora Ventures, BCI Fund, Blockchain I, LuneX Ventures, TRIVE, DYOR Capital, Rock Expansion, Plutusvc, Zenith Ventures, ZEOS Capital, Blockchain Founders Fund, Huobi Lab, QCP Capital, Fenbushi Capital and GBIC.
While it’s important to emphasize that blockchain is serious tech, there will be plenty of opportunities to leave the business behind and let loose on the dancefloor. Meanwhile, there will be startup soirées, get-togethers and impromptu celebrations taking place throughout the iconic Marina Bay Sands venue and in the surrounding area.
This will be an opportunity to forge more personal relationships among attendees and to rub shoulders with the people who stand at the forefront of this new technological movement. If you haven’t got your tickets yet, time is running out. With the event of the year taking place in just a matter of days, this is the last opportunity to be at 2018’s most important blockchain showcase.
Tue Nov 27, 2018 12:55 pm
What is BlockShow?
From a single conference which took place in 2016, BlockShow now hosts multiple events each year. It has a history of targeting the main centers of innovation across the world, setting up specialized conferences in the dominant technology hubs of America, Europe and Asia.
This year has already seen thousands of blockchain investors, engineers, enthusiasts and entrepreneurs attend the European BlockShow in Berlin, Germany and the Americas BlockShow, which took place in Las Vegas, USA. Consistently attracting interest from global figures such as Wikipedia’s founder, Jimmy Wales, President Obama’s Director of Press Advance, Johanna Maska, and Techcrunch’s Editor-at-Large, Mike Butcher, BlockShow bridges the gap between blockchain and the wider world.
The Asia Blockchain Week will see the greatest number of attendees of any BlockShow so far, creating a discourse among many thousands of people over the future of this revolutionary technology.
The reality of blockchain conferences is that it is a merger of abstract technology with social interaction. It is important to separate the Blocks from the Show, addressing each half individually before congregating together to reach a consensus that evaluates both in the real world environment that it must operate in. BlockShow caters to this model.
With in-depth talks about tech-heavy topics such as the integration of blockchain and AI, or addressing the political nuances of governments taking over blockchain, it is necessary to take the time to congregate in the lounge to break these topics down to a personal discussion, one which unites our human qualities with high-level abstractions. For when the technicalities become too much to handle, attendees can visit the on-site art gallery, to see some of the world’s most talked-about crypto-art, including the $6 million CryptoMother, signed by Buterin himself.
As the final event of 2018, this conference will be unlike any other. Not only will it bring representation from some of the biggest names across cryptocurrency and business, partnering with flagship organizations such as Coinmarketcap, LongHash, Treecoin, Mithril, Connectome, Quanta, Vbit, SFA, Access, Blockchain I, Whale Block and many other, but it will also be an opportunity to hear from world-renowned speakers such as Bobby Lee, Tone Vays, Mark Mueller-Eberstein, Prof. David Lee, Dr. Ben Goertzel, Ted Lin, Jason Hsu, Michael Gu, Thomas Lee, Justin Chow, Jehan Chu, Martin Lim, and over 60 more from the diverse world of organizations, companies, politicians, investors and thought-leaders.
In a world-first, this fall’s show will include a live-streamed segment, EXP20, which offers viewers a transparent look into the reality of startup pitches, bringing ten hopeful companies in front of a panel of investors, to convince senior venture capitalists that their idea is worth investing in. To make it all the more nerve-wracking, BlockShow attendees will be able to watch it all unfold in person, on the venue’s second stage.

BlockShow Forging Consensus Across Asian Blockchain market
BlockShow Forging Consensus Across Asian Blockchain market
As we approach the end of a crucial year for blockchain, the number of questions which have come to surface continues to grow each week. In a landmark event which draws the year to a close, BlockShow’s Asia Blockchain Week will amass business leaders from across FinTech to reach a new consensus about where exactly it is headed.
This event, which takes place at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center in Singapore from the 27th November to the 1st December, will stand out as one of the most significant blockchain conferences ever to take place, covering every aspect of the technology and its applications from grass-roots through to international government. There is something for everyone at Asia Blockchain Week and it’s due to be one of the largest events ever to take place in the sector.
While the prime attraction stretches across two days packed with speakers, networking events, exhibitions and panel debates, Asia Blockchain Week includes many other events taking place around the Marina Bay area. The first day of the conference (November 27th) will see the debut of Blockchain2Energy Asia, who have come to stand out as a principal application of blockchain in the energy sector and remain one of BlockShow’s close partners. With well-rounded discussion about energy and distributed ledger technology, it is one of the most important examinations of the future of the energy industry in light of blockchain.
Following the two days of BlockShow, Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and Singapore Academy of Law raise debates about smart contracts and ICO listings and their regulation, trust distribution, and regulations on the convergence of technology.
This will no doubt set the bar for governmental cooperation in the field - act fast, as there are limited places! Our partners LongHash also host a day-long event to close the Asia Blockchain Week, giving conference-goers the chance to hold their final meetings while taking note as to what real blockchain use cases in action look like.

Let us create the future NOW!
In a world where there is no longer any paper money targeted services like health care would become more efficient as fraud and supply chain losses are cut. Education funding would become easier and more economical as cost of remittances over long distances would fall. Students would be able to keep their degrees and diplomas safely in an electronic format which would be verifiable.
People would also begin to notice an improvement in civic services as obtaining licenses, certificates and permissions from local, state and federal government would become faster, simpler and more convenient through blockchain based wallets. Savers and investors would enjoy a trust in the banking and non-banking financial sector as never before.
The fact that most cryptocurrencies would not be subject to fiscal indiscipline by central banks would reinforce trust in the economic system and things like hyperinflation and bank runs would only be present in history books.
BlockShow Asia 2018, blockchain industry’s most acclaimed conference will be held in Singapore between November 27 - December 1, 2018 as a part of the Asia Blockchain Week. The conference is a splendid chance to network, showcase and learn in the spirit of community.Tickets are now available.

Cash as we know it today is completely untraceable. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), one of the greatest impediments to fighting corruption is cash. WEF states, “Every year, hundreds of billions of dollars of government payments and transfers are made in physical cash.
If an era of paperless money dawned, how would life change for all of us?
These include government salaries, health payments, pensions and financial support for families in need. Such payments are often difficult to trace, insecure and inefficient. The anonymity of cash makes it vulnerable to skimming off the top, and to “ghost” recipients who don’t exist. This is not a minor issue. It causes more than $110 billion in losses every year in emerging economies.”
Now that physical money has disappeared refugees can get their dues in digital currencies directly and better tracking can be enabled of what services have already been rendered to them. Homeless, destitutes and the less privileged can get benefits either in cash or kind and immutable blockchain technology can be used to track funds or goods transfers.
This will eliminate pilferage and help in proper deployment of government subsidies. At BlockShow Asia 2018, we have a chance to discuss solutions that can be deployed to create a better world in the future whether we use cash or end up in a world with no paper money.
Blockchain world’s best known event BlockShow will come to Asia between November 27 - December 1, 2018 in Singapore at the Asia Blockchain Week. Rub shoulders with Blockchain industry’s who’s who. Tickets are available.

BlockShow Asia 2018
BlockShow will come to Asia between November 27 - December 1, 2018 in Singapore at the Asia Blockchain Week
BlockShow is bringing Asia Blockchain Week to Singapore. Audiences are all set to be enthralled by over 100 speakers between November 27 - December 1, 2018 at Marina Bay Sands Luxury Hotel. The first ever organised by BlockShow, the Asia Blockchain Week brings together a diverse array of investors, entrepreneurs, developers, pundits and experts together. A five day networking opportunity but also a great place to listen to insights and discover where Blockchain is headed and how it is reshaping our world.
A conference that defines Blockchain
Blockchain isn’t just a passing fad, it is a technology whose time has come. BlockShow has been highlighting the importance of this since 2017. In the following year, BlockShow capitalised on their work and helped welcome millions into the Blockchain fold. Now the writing is clear on the wall, it is time to help Blockchain mature.
This can only happen when people come together and share their own unique experiences and values. As Venturebeat calls BlockShow, “The flagship event, which has grown quickly to become the largest Blockchain technology roadshow.” and Forbes describes BlockShow as “Major Blockchain Conference.” The reputation of BlockShow is its main draw.
Speakers that create discourse
The backbone of any great tech conference are the people who participate. This year at the Asia Blockchain Week, there is a lineup of excellent speakers that will take on the issues that surround Blockchain.
