Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Summit


MillionaireAsia Pte Ltd (Singapore) is pleased to organize The MillionaireAsia Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Summit to be held in Singapore on November 29, 2017.

Emcee Lester Leo is the emcee for this Blockchain and cryptocurrency event.

Blockchain Summit with US Congressman Mr Dennis Kucinich and Emcee Lester Leo

This will be an Investor Focused Conference on Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology. Rapid advances in digital technology are transforming the financial services landscape and such transformations generate new opportunities for consumers as well as service providers and regulators.

Industries that are set to be disrupted the most by this new technology include:

  • Government
  • Legal
  • Insurance
  • Real Estate
  • Travel Industry
  • Energy
  • Banking and Financial Services
  • Healthcare
  • Entertainment/Music and many more

Even the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is suggesting that banks invest in cryptocurrencies and has urged the fintech industry to provide solutions for consumers related to trust, security, financial services, and privacy in this area.

The combined market capitalization of Cryptocurrencies has skyrocketed from US$18 billion at the start of the year to US$100 billion in July. This threshold break is due largely to Bitcoin which recently hit a record high of over US$6,000 (over SG$8,000) in August 2017 with a market cap of over US$70 billion.

Interest in Blockchain technology and Cryptocurrencies has also spiked.

One of the objectives of the Summit is also to update delegates on the latest in regulatory issues by governments in Cryptocurrencies and to guide corporations and investors about Blockchain technology and how to deal with Cryptocurrencies.

US Congressman Dennis Kucinich (1997-2013) served as chairman of the Government Oversight Subcommittee on Domestic Policy during the 2007-08 financial collapse.
