Hahm Shout, Jenga K, the Korea M&A Center, and ICO PLATFORM PTE. LTD. co-hosted the '1st Global Blockchain Jump-Start Meetup in Singapore' on June 5th at the Spectrum in Singapore.
This Meetup was joined by about 300 influencers in the blockchain field such as Moon Soo Kim, the founder of MC Payment, Crypto Analysis™ and investors from various global investment companies such as Golden Equator Capital, Varidus, IO Group, etc. It was the largest event ever in Singapore where most blockchain meetups are smaller in scale with only 30 to 50 participants.
The Global Blockchain Jump-Start Meetup in Singapore was held in order to introduce South Korean companies' projects to global investors and influencers in Singapore to help South Korea's promising blockchain companies, selected carefully, to advance into the global market.
As the keynote speaker of this event, which opened with welcoming speeches by Jessica Kim, Hahm Shout CEO, and Tammy Ahn, Jenga K CEO, Chul Min Pyo delivered a message about investment value and growth potential of blockchain projects in South Korea under the theme of "The dynamism of Korean block chain companies and competitiveness in the global market."
After the keynote speech, the blockchain projects of participating companies from South Korea such as AI Crypto, Alphacon, iCROWD Coin, NiX BLOCK PROJECT, SEED, WeSing Coin, and ESC LOCK were introduced, drawing attention from the audience. In the case of NiX BLOCK PROJECT, the company arranged a special event during its presentation where the audience was given a chance to directly mine coins.
The Meetup ended with a special event where participating companies and investors networked with one another and actively exchanged their opinions, which led to successful results such as forming partnerships in the investment meetings on the spot.
Choi Rak Jae, Global Sales Director of AI Crypto, AI blockchain project for decentralized economy, said, "It was a great event because I was able to attract direct and indirect investment through networking time and meet investors who said they want to introduce our project to other countries such as Japan and China as well as Singapore.
Kim Sang Dong, CEO of WeSing Coin, a blockchain-based live networking music platform, said, "In order to attract investment we need to make connections with investors and have good PR & marketing strategies besides good ideas and technology. This event provided us a great opportunity to introduce our WeSing Coin project to many investors and some of them showed interests in our project.
Investors also applauded the event.
Local ICO organizer Dr. BK Kim, CEO of 'ICO PLATFORM PTE. LTD.' in Singapore said, "I have visited blockchain related meetups in Singapore more than 100 times to attract investment for ICO, but this is the first time for me to join blockchain meetup of this scale. I have no doubt that this is the largest ever in Singapore."
Ian McKee, CEO of Vuulr, a blockchain-based video content supply chain project, expressed satisfaction, saying "I was able to find a partner in the entertainment field for business in Korea through this meetup."
Shiva Venkatraman, CEO of Varidus, a venture capital company, which operates businesses in Singapore, Silicon Valley, and India, said, Korean market is the third largest in the world in terms of Bitcoin transactions. I hope we can see more of South Korean blockchain projects enter the global market through meetups like this one ('Global Blockchain Jump-Start Meetup in Singapore').
