Welcome to Unblock Bangkok in June! This month, we will explore the possibilities of blockchain at this latest meetup under the topic, “Thailand’s Blockchain Ecosystem: Potential Investment Opportunities.” Join us on Thursday, June 27th, 2019 from 6:30 – 9:30 pm at SPACES Chamchuri Square in Bangkok!
In this meetup, we will discuss the prospects of the crypto and blockchain landscape in Thailand — whether Thailand is still a red or blue ocean and what are the key perspectives, challenges, and opportunities for new players. We will welcome speakers and panelists from leading tech firms, including Alex Medana, Co-Founder & CEO of FinFabrik; Alexandre Kech, CEO of Onchain Custodian; Ian Lee, Vice-President of Signum Capital; Vincent Nguyen, Co-Founder & CEO of T-BOX; Marcus Lim, CEO of Zipmex; and Stephen Ng, CMO of SE Digital.
Unblock is a monthly meetup series discussing the hottest topics in blockchain, held in three cities: Bangkok (Thailand), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) to bring together key stakeholders and leading blockchain players for an eventful night of sharing and networking. We hope to continue fostering a strong community focusing on blockchain education and spreading awareness of how blockchain technology can positively impact our society.
Come for a fun evening of discussions about the latest movements in the blockchain and crypto community and connect with key players.
