Blockchain’s Explosive Growth in Southeast Asia
Malaysian banks piloting blockchain payment systems, Singaporean incubators investing heavily in 4.0 technology startups, India putting land rights on blockchain and Indonesian regulators developing technology sandboxes - Southeast Asia is quickly establishing itself as a region eager to adopt, explore and innovate blockchain technologies. Vietnam is the latest country to gain attention for its potential as a major hub.
Vietnam’s potential as a blockchain leader will be highlighted at the nation’s first major blockchain conference. The nation is one of the world’s fastest growing economies (6-7% growth per annum) with a young population (over 40% of the 95 million population are under the age of 24) that is hungry for blockchain and other 4.0 technologies. In 2017, universities across the country began offering exclusive blockchain courses and the motivated graduates along with Vietnam’s forward-looking and robust tech talents are exploring blockchain-driven innovations for the nation’s rapidly expanding technology and service sectors. Vietnam Blockchain Week will discuss impacts to these fields inside and outside the region.
Why Vietnam Blockchain Week?

Two uniquely curated panel and presentation tracks will be available - one for business/regulators and one for developers. Key topics will include incubation efforts, how blockchain can impact the unbanked, global supply chains, digital payment systems and IoT. Blockchain’s role in Regtech will be highlighted, including discussions about blockchain regulations, government partnerships and compliance services. Special attention will also be paid to examining Vietnam’s blockchain landscape.
Technology, regulation and development experts from blockchain startups and major corporations from Vietnam and around the world will share their experiences, insights, and knowledge with more than 1,500+ attending professionals.
