IBL is proud to announce an official partnership with The Business Review – the leading business magazine in Vietnam
On October 17th, 2018, Infinity Blockchain Labs (IBL) announced its media partnership with The Business Review. The signing ceremony took place at the Hotel Des Arts in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, with more than 30 high-profile journalists and reporters in attendance. Accordingly, The Business Review will become the strategic media partner of IBL in the Vietnamese market in the coming time.
Blockchain is best known as the technology behind cryptocurrency, which has attracted billions of dollars in investment over time. However, blockchain has potential far beyond cryptocurrency in many other applications rather than just a medium of exchange and electronic payment.
Blockchain is a breakthrough technology that is expected to have a considerable impact and radically transform significant industries in the near future. Examples of impacted industries include finance & accounting, health, logistics, digital identity, and many more. As of May 2018, more than 26,000 open-source blockchain projects were created and over 800 blockchain startups were established globally.

Most of the major banks have implemented research on blockchain and support programs for blockchain startups. Blockchain is expected to dramatically change the financial and payment industry in creating a value worth $20.3 billion USD by 2030. On another note, Vietnamese businesses also benefit significantly by blockchain technology. Vietnam has emerged as a popular destination for foreign blockchain companies due to its vast amounts of high-tech workers and programmers.
Through this strategic partnership, IBL and The Business Review will collaborate to provide the most diverse and accurate information-sharing platform for an abundance of Vietnamese businesses and investors possessing a profound interest in blockchain technology. Certain risks in investing and deploying this disruptive technology will also be discussed in this sharing platform.
