December 3, 2019 BACK TO PRESS RELEASES

The 14th global edition of Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit debuted in Thailand yesterday with over 300 crypto enthusiasts in attendance. After covering five countries this year, the global blockchain and crypto conference extended its footprints in one of South East Asia’s most active crypto markets for the first time. WBS Bangkok saw the participation of regional and international C-level executives, blockchain and crypto pioneers, industry experts, investors, solution providers and startups who came together to discuss the current and future trends in blockchain and its significant impact on Thailand’s digital economy. The conference took place after Trescon’s Startup Grand Slam Pitch Competition that brought together leading early-stage startups for a live on-stage battle for the most innovative ideas in the emerging tech space. BabyToken - a cryptocurrency and a blockchain ecosystem created by one of the most popular healthtech apps in the world - Pregnancy Tracker was the winner of the pitch competition. The summit also hosted an honorary award ceremony to felicitate EXW    Wallet  as the Best Wallet of 2019 along with the Best Blockchain Entrepreneurs Under 30 namely, Benjamin Herzog, Founder; Manuel Batista, CO–Founder and Pirmin Troger, CO-Founder/ CNO of EXW Wallet. 

WBS Bangkok had a cohesive agenda that essentially explored multiple facets of blockchain and cryptocurrency in the global context and for Thailand’s blockchain ecosystem. One of the major topics of discussion at the conference included the global outlook for 2020. While talking about the legal and regulatory landscape in Asia and Thailand, Kullarat Phongsathaporn, Partner at Baker & McKenzie Ltd added, “We’re likely to see more regulations globally in the digital asset world. This is a good sign, in that it is creating a real impact and more traction, so much so that the regulators are really active. We need a holistic direction from the government, so next year we can expect more synchronization from regulators.

The conference also featured a real-time live polling debate on Blockchain being a foundational layer to create trust within enterprises. The panellists included Felix Mago Co-Founder of Dash NEXT & Dash Thailand; Cris Tran, Regional Head, Managing Director of Infinity Blockchain Ventures and Managing Partner for Asia Blockchain Review; Clayton Roche, Country Ambassador for Maker DAO; Jorge Sebastiao, CTO of EcoSystem, Huawei and Joeri Van Geelen, Managing Partner APAC for Prysm Group as the Moderator for the debate. Interestingly, the poll result confirmed a favourable response from the audience towards working blockchain in the enterprise space.
