Singapore, 14 June 2022 – Blockchain Association Singapore (BAS) today announced that the 2022 edition of the Singapore Blockchain Week (SGBCW), will be held from 25 to 29 July 2022. Supported by key agencies and associations such as National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), Banking and Financial Services Union (BFSU), SGTech, and e2i, SGBCW is one of the largest government-supported blockchain events organised in Asia.
SGBCW will bring together industry leaders, academics, innovators, government and regulatory bodies, as well as aid collaboration on a regional and international level, while catering to both virtual and physical engagements in multiple locations through a hybrid format.
Themed “Web 3.0 and Beyond”, SGBCW’s anchor event, the Singapore Blockchain Week Summit, will bring together industry experts and pioneers through a conference and exhibition to be held from 26 to 27 July 2022 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre. The Singapore Blockchain Week Summit will focus on topics such as the outlook towards blockchain and digital assets, regulation, Web 3.0, Decentralised Finance (DeFi), enterprise blockchain, Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), game finance, and blockchain for good, among others.
Highlights for the summit will include a fireside chat with Mr Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and a keynote speech from Mr. Raymond Yuan, CTH founder and CEO of Atlas Technology Management Pte. Ltd (Atlas). Hester Peirce, Commissioner of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), also affectionately known in the blockchain community as “crypto mom”, will also be sharing her insights during SGBCW 2022.
Commenting on the premier blockchain event, Chia Hock Lai, Co-Chairman of BAS said, “Singapore’s blockchain and digital assets industry, although nascent, is primed to grow as adoption and awareness of blockchain grows. It is encouraging to see that SGBCW has attracted a diverse and stellar line-up of industry leaders and speakers from all around the globe to congregate and exchange ideas, which will go a long way towards nurturing the local and regional blockchain ecosystem. I hope that SGBCW will serve as a source of knowledge and inspiration for our members and the ecosystem at large.”
SGBCW will kick off with a Hackathon jointly organised by Morpheus Lab and Huawei. Taking place on 25 July, the Hackathon will showcase finalists’ product demonstrations. Other events taking place during SGBCW include masterclasses and a career fair jointly organised by BAS, e2i, the Banking and Financial Services Sector, NTUC, and the Global Fintech Institute, as well as an exclusive Blockchain for Good Gala Dinner taking place from 26 to 29 July.
Mr. Raymond Yuan, Founder & Chairman of CTH Group and CEO of Atlas Technology Management Pte. Ltd (Atlas), Emeritus Partner of Singapore Blockchain Week 2022, commented, “The pandemic has accelerated the innovation and adoption of digital assets. The digital asset industry is increasingly institutionalised, and Web 3.0 is unavoidable. A thriving digital asset ecosystem can only be built, if all parties including technological know-how leaders can navigate, collaborate, and prosper in this brave new world. Events like the Singapore Blockchain Week allow the different components of the ecosystem to meet. It is through this cohesion that we can achieve our common goal of fair and more inclusive financial markets. Through integrated business lines of Atlas, IDEG and Fundamental Labs, we offer a comprehensive range of value-added services throughout the blockchain ecosystem, and we believe in the sustainable and responsible development of digital asset.”
“Blockchain technology ecosystem is booming with its diversified applications, and ESPORTS 3.0 is one of them. ESPORTS 3.0 is building a Web 3.0 decentralized platform specifically designed to bring Esports into the blockchain by integrating mainly smart contracts among key stakeholders in the ESPORTS industry, unlocking the massive growth potential of the Sharing Economy. GEMS is an Esports 3.0 Platform with a unique online-to-offline system, propelling Esports into 3.0 by integrating GameFi, Metaverse and SocialFi elements. We are excited to share and communicate our ideas and vision in Singapore Blockchain Week 2022,” said Andy Koh, CEO of GEMS.
