26th September 2018 at Distrii Singapore (2nd Floor), Louis Cleroux, Founder at Timechain, Connie Liew, COO at Coris Asset Management, Eugene Tay, Host / Founder at RockTheBlock.Live, and Abraham Lapuz NEM Volunteer Tech Trainer gave their point of views in regards of Major Announcements, Investment Funds, UPDATE from MAS, Stable coins & Security Tokens.

Business developers, crypto and blockchain enthusiasts as well as compliance were among the 40 attendees.

Few of the topics that were discussed are getting blockchain into mainstream, wallet features, funding blockchain projects by VCs, and smart contracts. It was an agreed point that user experience and security are the top concerns for putting blockchain for mass adoption.

I want to ask you a question. Who uses Lazada, Q10, or any online shopping? Do you know which database they are using to store their data? No. No one cares right? As long you shop online, and you can order and that item can be delivered to you. Right? That is what we care at all. So in blockchain, what I can see and observe on projects and clients is, for you to put the blockchain in mainstream, you need userability.

For us in NEM we educate two factors. Enterprises and second one are the users. Meaning, the enterprise need to have a solution or application that will be using a blockchain. So let’s say Lazada will be NEM’s client now, it will be the same Lazada you can shop online and get the items deliver.

I think the factor or the requirements become the mainstream is for the userability. — Abraham Lapuz NEM Volunteer Tech Trainer

How the wallets will differentiate from each others? How they will become successful?

How we can interact, how we can use those different digital asset management, this something that you guys will able to discover through Timechain. — Louis Cleroux, Founder at Timechain
