The 13th global edition of Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit successfully concluded in Dubai last month, pulling together over 1000 participants that included C-level executives from enterprises, policy makers, top blockchain and crypto pioneers, industry experts, investors, solution providers and innovative startups. Even so, the gung-ho spirit of blockchain and crypto enthusiasts still seem to be up in full swing. With this edition, the year 2019 will see four new locations that WBS has touched upon including the already concluded Kuala Lumpur, Taipei and India editions. The summit is taking place on December 1st and 2nd at the Intercontinental, Bangkok.
With its recent strides in the blockchain and crypto space coupled with vehement government support, Thailand is marching ahead as one of the most crypto-friendly development zones in Southeast Asia. Mohammed Saleem, Founder and CEO of Trescon speaks with an excited tone about the upcoming Summit, “Thailand has a very active blockchain and crypto ecosystem, making it an ideal location for budding blockchain & crypto projects! This edition will focus more on helping Thailand improve its regulatory framework. I am really thrilled to hear more about Thailand’s blockchain and crypto ecosystem from some of the most forward-thinking industry experts, investors and startups who will help achieve the nation’s vision of ‘Digital Thailand’”.
