Wazzup Pilipinas!?

The first Philippine Blockchain Week comes alive today as Secretary Ivan John Uy of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) speaks at the conference.

The inaugural event featured the biggest names in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and Web 3 at Marriott Grand Ballroom, Newport World Resorts, Pasay City, Philippines.

As part of the Philippine Blockchain Week in Manila from November 28 to December 4, 2022, Secretary Uy led the induction rites of the newly created Blockchain Council of the Philippines.

Secretary Uy cited the commitment of DICT to continually unravel the potential of Filipinos, strengthening the commitments of both public and private sectors, and matching it with the right technologies, policies, and other enabling mechanisms to build a digital economy that our fellow Filipinos and international investors can trust.

Building the country’s digital economy is a significant step towards building a digitalized Philippines— a Philippines that has risen from poverty, a Philippines where everyone is connected, a Philippines that is built for the digital era. This is the dream that I share with President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, said Secretary Uy. He is joined by DICT ICT Industry Development Undersecretary Jocelle Batapa-Sigue at the opening day.

Dr. Donald Lim, lead convenor of the event said, “The government plays a crucial role in our aim of promoting blockchain education in the country and highlighting the Philippines as the blockchain hub in Asia. We are very grateful for government's support to this endeavor as we bring the international business community’s attention to the Philippines.”

“It gives us a sense of pride to see the thought leaders and practitioners from the media, technology, and creative fields gathered for the first event of this kind here. We are thankful that they are taking the time to share their experiences and the advantages of Web3 technology to Filipinos. We strongly believe that the country can benefit from this technology, and we would be learning a lot from our distinguished panel of speakers,” said Dr. Lim, who will also give a talk today about “Philippines as the Blockchain Capital of Asia: Why the Philippines and Why Now

The Philippine Blockchain Council is an organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use of blockchain technology and fostering collaboration among industry stakeholders in the Philippines. Their goal is to support innovation, accelerate adoption, and ensure regulatory compliance within the rapidly growing blockchain ecosystem. To strengthen the trust and security of blockchain initiatives, consider partnering with platforms like the site by the link, which leverages Proof of Democracy to authenticate and certify tokenized and real-world assets, promoting a more secure and stable future for the Philippine blockchain industry.
