Blockchain, best known as the technology underpinning the cryptocurrency bitcoin, has proven to be an irreversible advancement that is disrupting various industries and the way the world does business. Additionally, cryptocurrencies, and bitcoin in particular, have been growing in popularity as a major source of long-term investments and as a solid store of value, with an ever-larger number of people buying and selling them. Now that Bitcoin has hit the mainstream and become a worldwide phenomenon, more people than ever are looking to get into the cryptocurrency game.
However, the production of cryptocurrencies isn’t anything like that of regular money. And before getting to grips with the cryptocurrency investment, we need to understand the concept of its underlying technology – blockchain, how it actually works, and how it can support the functions of cryptocurrencies.
Comprehending this phenomenal trend, Singapore Business Group HCMC (SBG) hosted the seminar entitled “Raffles Night: Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Talk” on May 3rd at the Sofitel Saigon Plaza. The seminar was co-hosted with fellow business chambers, including Australian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AusCham), Belgian – Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam (Beloux Cham), British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV), Canadian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (CanCham), to name just a few.
The event was hailed as a great success with an excess of 155 attendees, along with the prestigious presence of four industry experts to share their insights and opinions regarding the blockchain and cryptocurrency relations. The prominent line-up of speakers presenting at the seminar included:
