The Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) is considered one of the key FinTech conferences in the Southeast Asian region and this year, NEM had the opportunity to be part of this major event, held at the Singapore Expo.
The three-day conference (12th to 14th November) organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the country’s central bank, drew a huge crowd with a record-breaking 45,000 attendees with almost 130 countries taking part in the conference. The Festival also featured more than 250 speakers, almost 500 exhibitors — 60 percent of which were foreign, and 16 international pavilions. The Festival is the biggest fintech event in the world and provides a global platform for the fintech community to connect, collaborate and co-create.
NEM had the opportunity to be one of the exhibitors at SFF2018 and an international team of NEM staff from UAE, Malaysia, Australia and Indonesia were at the conference to help the Singapore team engage and educate the attendees about blockchain as well as NEM.
The NEM booth itself had its fair share of visitors curious about blockchain and NEM. In fact, a high number of tertiary students were seen at the NEM booth, eager to seek advice on how to get utilise blockchain for their projects. With the high number of students expressing interest in blockchain and NEM, there is hope that there will be more adoption in the future from these future graduates.
Two of NEM’s ecosystem partners, Proxima X and Omniaz, were also in attendance and Omniaz especially had the opportunity to showcase their BevTech solution ahead of their official launch on 1st December. You can watch Raph’s interview with Lukasz Piotrowski, CEO and Founder of Omniaz, below!
