1. About Blockchain Innovation & Technology
On May 5, 2019, the leading blockchain media, Asia Token Fund, formerly the first blockchain news in the region, will join BlockAce, Rapidz, Gosh Talk, AFIN, AVXchange, OnBUFF, Chain+Capital and other partners Node Capital, Bibox, BlockTides, The Face and Coderschool to co-host “Blockchain Innovation & Technology (BIT)” for the second time in Vietnam. Other events in the program will take place in big cities of Southeast Asia including Bangkok-Thailand (April 25), Manila – Philippines (April 28), Ho Chi Minh – Vietnam (May 5).
Started off as a media company, with over 80,000 Subscribers and strong social media followings, AsiaTokenFund (ATF) has launched the app called ATF that allows users to read the latest news, market analysis, store their cryptocurrency, buy or sell cryptocurrency, transfer to friends or purchase using cryptocurrency at merchants. ATF is now available on both Android and iOS operating systems.
Last year, BIT 2018 in Vietnam has received tremendous attention of technology and media units with 31 publications and 2 TV news. “I always think that without the help and support of our partners, BlockAce definitely would not have the opportunity to develop and bring BIT back for the second time”, said Ms. Le Anh, founder of BlockAce and CBO of Asia Token Fund
From 2018 to 2019, Southeast Asia is considered an emerging and potential blockchain market, the region’s economic force has become one of the driving factors that facilitate global growth. A report from Deloitte estimated fintech investments in Southeast Asian countries in 2018 exceeded 30% compared to the $ 5.7 billion invested in 2017. Moreover, more than 60% of investors from Southeast Asia said technology was their major interest during the period 2018-2019, which was headed by fintech, followed by AI and blockchain. After a thriving year of ICO trend, 2019 marks a new development potential with STO (Security Token Offering) and IEO (Initial Exchange Offering, a form of crowdfunding capitalization through a token offering on the cryptocurrency exchange), promising to bring innovative development and opportunities for traditional financial institutions to join the blockchain market.
In order to increase mass adoption and raise brand awareness, the projects will be supported by communications and connecting traditional business partners through live sessions, presentations on the stage as well as on the national television. This is an opportunity for the development team to approach and satisfy investors and exchanges, develop and expand opportunities for future cooperation.
Usually, male speakers and experts account for 90% at technology events. The reason may come from the fact that only a few women really care, or partly lack of confidence due to prejudice and social tradition. Realizing that, during the 2nd BIT event in Vietnam, BlockAce team decided to spend 1 of 2 main panel discussions for female leaders in the industry from countries in the Asia Pacific. Thereby, we wish to create an intimacy between women and women and convey the message that women also has enough capacity, passion, and strength to participate in the blockchain space.
Moreover, BIT is very pleased to cooperate and accompany the media units (HTV, THE FACE)
Especially, during the start and end of the event, the organizers and sponsors will also bring airdrop gifts, prizes encompass $1000 BIX Token, $500 Bibox T-shirt from Bibox, 50 BBGC caps and 02 scholarships worth VND 20,000,000 from CoderSchool specializing in training on new technologies, anticipating trends including courses on. there are also 15 AFIN Wallet Touch (worth $ 70 / product) for individuals and communities interested in products as well as becoming AFIN Vietnam representatives.
