Technologies altering the world! A unique event – Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Philippines – will bring together leading experts as well as business and government representatives who will talk about industry advantages.
About the conference
It is the first time that Smile-Expo holds the conference dedicated to blockchain technologies in Philippines!
Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Philippines will bring together specialists in the cryptocurrency market and blockchain technologies from the Philippines and other countries. Held in the state capital Manila, the conference will allow participants to share their experience in integrating the blockchain into the government control sector, banking system, trading, media, healthcare and other areas. Participants will discuss all aspects of developing innovative IT products: from the idea to launch.
The cryptocurrency regulation in the Philippines has become the first initiative of such a kind in Asian countries. the rapid growth of cryptocurrency transactions within the country, reaching $6mn, has become a significant factor leading to the statutory regulation.
The conference will involve IT developers, entrepreneurs, investors as well as specialized software and hardware manufacturers. Keynote speakers will include managers of world-renowned companies and representatives of authorities.
On January 25, Manila for the first time will host Blockchain & Bitcoin onference Philippines, an event dedicated to cryptocurrency, blockchain and ICO. Philippines is a pioneer in the digital assets regulation At the end of November 2017, the Philippines` Securities and Exchange Commission announced its intention to introduce cryptocurrencies in the legal field.

For the final leg of our Stellar series, let’s dive deeper into the Stellar ecosystem. Let’s discuss the role of anchors and their importance in Stellar’s payments network.
One of the first Stellar anchors is Coins.ph. Certainly, Coins do not need further introduction. Suffice is to say that Coins.ph is one of the leading mobile financial service providers that enables its users to pay and get paid around Southeast Asia, powered of course by blockchain technology.
Colin Goltra – Head of Product at Coins.ph – will join us to share how Coins are using the Stellar network to enhance some of its products and services. If we get lucky, we might convince Colin to talk about his financial inclusion advocacy. For more information about Coins.ph, please see this link: https://coins.ph/
As usual, we shall endeavor to distribute Stellar Lumens (XLM) to the participants of this meetup.
This is an open event. No need to seek permission if you wish to attend although we certainly appreciate the RSVP.
Our open forum welcomes discussion of other topics not necessarily relevant to the announced theme. However, please allow the organizers opportunity to moderate our discussion.

Let’s discuss Ethereum’s potential to transform the legacy financial system. We’ll also cover the status of institutional adoption in the Philippines or whatever blockchain agenda local financial institutions might roll out in the medium term.
In Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott’s book, Blockchain Revolution, they noted at least eight core functions that are ripe for disruption and blockchain technology’s significant impact on the next steps forward:
Authenticating identity and value.
Funding and investing.
Insuring value and managing risk.
Accounting for value.
What do they actually mean? Do you agree that blockchain technology will have an overwhelming disruptive effect on a traditionally conservative sector such as the financial industry?
