Michael Xuan, Director at Crypto Expo Asia, said, “Institutional interest in blockchain and Web3 technology remains at a high despite fears of a prolonged crypto winter. As the entire industry approaches maturity, as evidenced by increased regulatory oversight, now is the time for public and private sector stakeholders to work more closely together than ever before.”

He added: “South and Southeast Asia have some of the world’s highest crypto adoption rates. It will come as no surprise that Crypto Expo Asia is seeing record interest from industry associations as well as global and regional players, keen to further discourse around hot-button issues, including artificial intelligence, CBDCs, Web3 regulation, Metaverse adoption and blockchain gaming.”

Imagining the Finance World with Cryptocurrency

Harpreet Singh, President at ACCESS Blockchain Association Malaysia, said, “ACCESS Malaysia is excited to contribute to the discussions around how crypto assets will reimagine the financial ecosystem. As the sector evolves toward mainstream acceptance spurred by the ongoing regulatory developments both in the region as well as globally, we believe Crypto Expo Asia will be a timely avenue to discuss the path ahead for the industry.”

2023 also marks the debut of the Web3 Expo Asia Summit, a sub-event under the auspices of Crypto Expo Asia dedicated to panel sessions around NFTs and the Metaverse.
