“We are excited to host one of the biggest blockchain events in our region — BBC. This would help the hyperlocal community to learn more about the power of a decentralized economy through blockchain technology. The ability to build where you are, regardless who you are, is a strong affirmation to motivate builders from the countryside to start innovating in tech to help their local digital economy grow while working on their respective provinces and regions.”
Ismael Jerusalem, CEO of Ownly said in a statement.
With the region’s thriving local tech industry, and startups, projects, and companies already beginning to venture into the world of blockchain, the series of these blockchain-focused events are perfectly timed to be an avenue for everyone in the local industry to discover promising startups and projects, join hands for partnerships and collaboration, be affiliated, and be exposed to new learnings as projects introduce their initiatives in a more intimate setting, by meeting and organizing in-real-life (IRL) events.
BBC is made possible by our co-presenter, the Department of Trade and Industry, our sponsor, DivinaLaw, together with our media and community partners, Block Tides, BitPinas, Asia Token Fund, CoinVoice, and Bicol IT.
