Besides keynotes on blockchain potential in various angles, the event also houses an exciting panel on talent development in Malaysia. Featuring representatives from Infinity Blockchain Ventures, Blocklime, ACCESS Malaysia, University of Malaya and Infinito, the panel tapped into the talented landscape in Malaysia, especially of its blockchain talents. According to Mr. Harpreet Singh Maan, Co-Founder & CEO of Blocklime, Malaysia is facing tech-talent shortages, not just for developer roles but across all spheres, such as business developers to sell and present the technology.

Echoing Mr. Harpreet Singh Maan’s perspective, Ms. Nur Husna Zakaria also stated that one of the key reasons for this situation lies in awareness. Since blockchain is a nascent technology, it is difficult for people to adopt it because they are not aware and understand what blockchain is about.
