The conference took place after Trescon’s Startup Grand Slam Pitch Competition that brought together leading early-stage startups for a live on-stage battle for the most innovative ideas in the emerging tech space. BabyToken – a cryptocurrency and a blockchain ecosystem created by one of the most popular health tech apps in the world – Pregnancy Tracker was the winner of the pitch competition. The summit also hosted an honorary award ceremony to felicitate EXW Wallet as the Best Wallet of 2019 along with the Best Blockchain Entrepreneurs Under 30 namely, Benjamin Herzog, Founder; Manuel Batista, CO–Founder and Pirmin Troger, CO-Founder/ CNO of EXW Wallet.

WBS Bangkok had a cohesive agenda that essentially explored multiple facets of blockchain and cryptocurrency in the global context and for Thailand’s blockchain ecosystem. One of the major topics of discussion at the conference included the global outlook for 2020. While talking about the legal and regulatory landscape in Asia and Thailand, Kullarat Phongsathaporn, Partner at Baker & McKenzie Ltd added,

We’re likely to see more regulations globally in the digital asset world. This is a good sign, in that it is creating a real impact and more traction, so much so that the regulators are really active. We need a holistic direction from the government, so next year we can expect more synchronization from regulators.”

The conference also featured a real-time live polling debate on Blockchain being a foundational layer to create trust within enterprises. The panellists included Felix Mago Co-Founder of Dash NEXT & Dash Thailand; Cris Tran, Regional Head, Managing Director of Infinity Blockchain Ventures and Managing Partner for Asia Blockchain Review; Clayton Roche, Country Ambassador for Maker DAO; Jorge Sebastiao, CTO of EcoSystem, Huawei and Joeri Van Geelen, Managing Partner APAC for Prysm Group as the Moderator for the debate.
