World Blockchain Summit Arrives at the Hottest ICO Destination – Singapore


PRESS RELEASE – On a global tour, the summit is aiming to disrupt the APAC market through its comprehensive agenda.

Date, Singapore: Singapore is now the third-biggest market for token sales and has
always been a venue for most of the largest technology summits in the world. Now,
the city-state gets ready to welcome Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit to host the
global blockchain community under one roof. It is taking place on 17-18 July at the
luxurious Marina Bay Sands Resort, Singapore.

World Blockchain Summit series attracts over 20,000 attendees across 10+ countries
around the globe, and it has seen numerous business deals, such as the Govt. of
Andhra Pradesh signing a MoU with VISA to transform the city of Vizag into a cashless
city. Also, US based startup ObEN raised US$ 30 million, and Bosnian cryptocurrency
provider DebitCoin sold tokens worth US$ 5 million on the spot, to name a few.

The Singapore edition is supported by ACCESS, the Association of Cryptocurrency
Enterprises and Startups Singapore, that has been established to develop and
research blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, to help reshape the financial
and commercial landscape of Singapore city. This partnership will help attendees get
connected to the right industry experts for commercial and strategic development in
the blockchain space.

Although the summit serves a platform for a global audience, this edition’s primary
agenda is to also help the blockchain economy within Singapore, by bridging them to
potential investors and venture capitalists. One such Singapore based international
investment firm ‘Life.SREDA VC Asia’, has partnered with the summit to be an
exclusive jury member on the pitch competition panel, with a potential US$ 1 million
investment prize up for grabs.

In an interview leading up to the summit, Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, said
that “The nation of Singapore has always been a technology hub in the entire APAC
region. Their prowess to embrace futuristic technologies is displayed through their
state-of-the-art infrastructure and technological landscape. Blockchain has a bright
future in South East Asia, and the journey will begin in Singapore with the help of
Trescon”, when asked about the decision to hold the summit in the ‘Land of Lions’.

The global summit will play host to blockchain experts and thought leaders, who will
be dissecting multiple applications of blockchain technology within the public and
private sectors, in a series of panel discussion and tech-talks. Some of the influential
speakers set to take the stage are Alex Medana, Co-Founder and CEO of FinFabrik,
Hong Kong; Anson Zeall, Chairman of the Board for ACCESS; and Heng Soon Pang,
