August 4, 2020

From Blockchain to Bitcoin and the future technology, communities are slowly getting informed and fully recognize the importance of change. Over a month ago, numerous parties virtually united to discuss over 5 different technologies in 5 consecutive days, in 1 single week. 

Asia Blockchain Review team was following through all the sessions, and we believe that it was a worthwhile learning experience for seniors to juniors who are still new in the whole technology to learn a thing or two.

You could explore and easily watch the recorded live session that you can freely access from day one till day five.

When it comes to finance, everything is being looked at and observed from one point to another as we verify the information to approve the data that are being distributed.

As many still look at the exchanges as not governed by the higher authorities, the functional system is the same.

We have peer-to-peer trading platforms that provide users with better security, flexibility to even a centralized system that no one can ever erase for good. The links to the sessions are below.

Education For Free and For All

A pseudonymous programmer called Satoshi Nakamoto created the Bitcoin technology from 2008 to 2012 with a vision for all and the codes.

It was not something that was done merely on the basis of creating, but it had a purpose and that is what we are looking to explore for all, today.

As learning becomes a forever journey that one shall appreciate; the first step of getting started would be by asking yourself a prominent question of “Why do I need this or what is the function of it?”.

Jason Chew of Bitcoin Malaysia mentioned that there would be no purpose for one to get into the bandwagon, if it is solely to attack or being gullible without knowing the whole reason of why future technologies were first created and how to fully utilize it.

Jason further commented that the technology is becoming mature as the years have passed. Henceforth; it has attracted more Blockchain related projects that are well funded in the Southeast Asia market to even across the continent. 

“It is all about finding local user adopters, fans, champions – then things will become a reality.” he said.

Ahead of Time

Before the education series of Southeast Asia DeFi week, there was also Enterprise Blockchain Week of which all of the sessions have created impact among the communities and shared opinions as well as opportunities within the sphere of future technologies.

Decentralized Finance or DeFi is not going against the traditional bank services, but it creates the security and overall authenticity of every single information and data that are being shared, recognized, to even – monitored on every single transaction.

It has now grown rapidly in Blockchain where it functions without gatekeepers, thus allowing almost anyone to develop an application of Decentralized Finance which eventually can be showcased to the whole wide world.
