Going Back to the Philippines: Manila Will Host Second Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference

On December 6, the international company Smile-Expo will organize the second Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Philippines – a large event about DLT and cryptocurrencies. The conference will unite leading industry specialists who will discuss the main issues of the technology, ICOs and latest DLT news.

Why Are We Returning to the Philippines?

The Philippines is the promising country in terms of blockchain development as it presents numerous startups working with DLT.

In May 2018, there was an establishment of the Blockchain Association of the Philippines (BAP) – an organization aiming to educate and connect crypto businesses and discover the potential of DLT. BAP aims at making Philippines the country of P2P connections, improving an access to banking and reaching high economic efficiency.

Then, on June 27, Philippines’ Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) announced that it would issue licenses to 25 crypto exchanges. The aim of the rule was to observe how crypto businesses work and protect investors from scam.

Also, British blockchain company Online Blockchain has launched ManilaCoin – a cryptocurrency for alternative financial transactions in the Philippines. It allows the nation to control their money and efficiently mine the coin on computers without the special hardware.

Moreover, the Philippines has a lot of companies that are developing the technology. Among them – an advanced crypto payment app It gives the Filipinos an opportunity to pay bills, buy game credits and get digital currencies.

What to Expect from Our Second Conference?

Our second event in the Philippines will gather technology developers, entrepreneurs, investors, miners as well as representatives of the leading organizations and all crypto industry enthusiasts.


Guests will have a chance to meet with experts from top world corporations working with DLT. Specialists will deliver presentations on assets tokenization and ICO launching.

More than that, speakers will explain how to prevent hacker attacks and share information about how crypto regulations influence businesses.

The unique topic of the conference – DLT in various spheres. Experts will tell the audience how the technology is applied in different sectors apart from finances and will provide use cases from the Philippines and other countries.

Demo Zone and Pitch Sessions

Guests will also visit the demo zone – a space where companies will show their crypto products. Among them – new mining hardware, crypto payments solutions and blockchain-based apps.

The event will also provide a unique chance to find project investments – startups will share their unique ideas during the pitch sessions. Finding new business partners will be possible as well – the event will include the time for networking.
