Furthermore, De/Centralize 2018 also aims to strengthen the bond between the communities in North America with that of Asia as collaborative stakeholders. Several themes will be explored throughout De/Centralize 2018, including decentralised applications, legal and regulatory issues, capital raising and the evolution of the cryptoasset ecosystem–all lead by industry movers and shakers.

Confirmed speakers include Singapore’s Steve Leonard, CEO of SGInnovate and Timothy Draper, founder of DFJ (via teleconference), an American venture capital firm focused on growth-stage investments in enterprise, consumer, and disruptive technologies. Also present is Meltem Demirors the founder of Athena Capital.

“A lot has been said about investment in cryptocurrencies, which is on track to becoming a trillion dollar asset class,” says Aditya Mishra, co-organiser of De/Centralize and COO of Zenprivex. “Our focus on De/Centralize is less on the speculative nature of currencies and more on the macroeconomic ideas around the foundational technology. To this end, we’re extremely pleased to be bringing some of the world’s most renowned investors, regulators, and blockchain thought leaders to Singapore, and to further Singapore’s presence on the global fintech and blockchain map.”
