InfoCorp Technologies was also featured in a multi-agency curated report by Consensys, the Infocomm Media Development Agency (IMDA), the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Temasek Holdings, titled “Singapore Blockchain Ecosystem 2019”. In page 48 of the report, it wrote about how InfoCorp looks at financial inclusion differently. You can read more about the report here.

“I strongly believe that we have a great solution to solve the financial inclusion problem faced by many unbanked smallholder livestock farmers. With the strong recognition accorded to us at this high profile event, it further affirms what we are embarking on is the most innovative way to help those impoverish farmers in Asia and Africa to get out of the poverty cycle.”

“I would like to say a very big thank you to the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Singapore Fintech Festival organiser for a very successful event, and the opportunity to showcase our unique solution to the global fintech community.”
