On January 25, 2018, Manilla will host the first conference dedicated to the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Philippines.
Our company brings together blockchain entrepreneurs, government officials, investors, developers, ICO organizers.
The Philippines is showing more and more interest in the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. Experts estimate that virtual money transactions have reached $6 million in 2017, exceeding the last year’s figure threefold. The increased hype and growing popularity of cryptocurrencies have encouraged the government to legalize the use of digital money with plans to equal them with securities. Currently, only Bitcoin has been officially recognized as a means for money transfers.
Furthermore, the possibility to license cryptocurrency exchanges is debated. The national central bank Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has already registered and approved five companies to operate as cryptocurrency exchanges.
Besides, the Philippine financial regulator is drafting the rules of initial coin offerings procedures that contain easier terms for ICOs. It is expected that a central counterparty for token trading will be established. Regulations have been already dubbed as favorable.
The rapid growth of the FinTech industry in the country has motivated our company to hold Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Philippines.
