If you’ve got a foot in the crypto-sphere, by this point you’ll probably have heard of Crypto Expo Asia, one of the region’s largest crypto events. The follow-up to the Crypto Expo Dubai which took place this past March and was attended by over 4,000 crypto enthusiasts, Crypto Expo Asia allows investors, entrepreneurs, and industry professionals to get together and hash it out over all things crypto, as well as be the first to know about upcoming product launches and partnerships. The event will be taking over Singapore next month, and if you want to know what you get for your ticket, read on. 

Most notably, the expo recently announced partnerships with some of the biggest players in the game. With the backing of major associations like the Asia Blockchain Association (ABA), Asia Blockchain Gaming Alliance (ABGA), Asosiasi Blockchain Indonesia (ABI), Singapore Fintech Association (SFA), and the Singapore University of Social Sciences Node for Inclusive FinTech Blockchain Security Alliance (SUSS NiFT), this year’s conference will emphasize the importance of collaboration among industry players, as well as provide a chance for association members to network under one roof.

Association members will receive access to preferential rates for all sponsorship packages and delegate passes. Interested parties can contact the team for more information.

“The industry’s recent trials have shown just how important it is for the community to engage in productive discourse,” said Shawn Tham, Co-Chairman of the Asia Blockchain Association. “Driving conversations and facilitating solutions to the industry’s most pressing issues is part of the ABA’s raison d’être, and we look forward to the ideas and solutions that will emerge from the conference this year.”

The two-day event will be filled with a slew of presentations and panel discussions covering topics like the shift from Web2 to Web3, the advantages (and disadvantages) of decentralization of finances, the role of policymakers when it comes to crypto investments, and the current blockchain landscape within Asia. The full agenda for both days is available online.

As for the headline speakers, it’s a masthead of who’s who. More names will also be announced in the lead-up to the event, but so far, confirmed headliners include:

  • Hayden Hughes, Co-Founder and CEO of Alpha Impact
  • Chen Zhuling, CEO and Founder of RockX
