Wei Zhou, CEO of, ("Coins" or the "Company"), the Philippines' leading digital wallet provider and crypto exchange platform, took the stage at the second edition of the Fintech Alliance’s Inclusion and Digital Transformation (INDX) Summit 2.0 to discuss the potential for the Philippines to globally lead the digital transformation of the financial sector.

“The Philippines has proven it can be a global leader in the adoption of financial technology. With over 100 million people, the majority of whom are below the age of 30, we have the numbers to become the epicenter of global innovation in fintech. We are already the leaders in Web3 and with our regulator's progressive mindset in finding the balance between protecting investors and promoting innovation, we are poised to become a force to reckon with,” Zhou said in the leadup to the event.

Zhou appeared on a panel on Day 2 of the Summit to discuss the challenges posed by the adoption of new technologies in the financial sector, and the progressive steps taken by industry and regulators in the Philippines to promote innovation, upskill the workforce, and develop relevant competencies. Zhou spoke alongside other leaders from industry and government, including Emilio B. Aquino, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, who delivered a keynote address introducing the panel.

“As the world moves into the Web3 era dominated by digital currencies and blockchain technology, the Philippines is ahead of the curve in terms of both user adoption and homegrown technology development. With hundreds of millions of people now owning digital assets and relying on crypto’s instant transactions and cheap fees to make payments and send money seamlessly around the world, regulators in the Philippines have pursued a balanced approach that encourages crypto platforms to operate within a well-thought-out regulatory framework that protects citizens without stifling innovation. That is an incredibly encouraging sign for the country’s ability to remain at the forefront as innovative new technologies continue to transform economies across Southeast Asia and around the world,” Zhou added.
