The two-day Blockchain Festival, the first of its kind in Vietnam, will feature more than 30 speakers, including keynotes from Le Ngoc Giang from the Ministry of Justice of Vietnam, and David Nguyen, president of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce Singapore and chairman of Regulus Investment & Capital Holdings.
"Vietnam is becoming more and more important on the global blockchain map," said David Nguyen. "As such, Vietnam needs more help from global leaders in the blockchain industry, like Huobi. We are grateful to Huobi for organising ‘Blockchain Festival Vietnam,’ which is an important milestone for Vietnam's blockchain development. We hope that this festival will help to increase awareness among ICT businesses, students, and universities.”
Attendees of Huobi.Pro’s Blockchain Festival Vietnam will have the chance to meet blockchain industry leaders, such as Loi Luu (founder of Kyber Network), Larry Liu, (founder of Genaro Network), Li Pu, (chief technology officer of Achain), Mikhail Mironov (head of partnership at ICORating) and more.
Fuelled by a young population with a high rate of smart phone usage and large batches of IT graduates each year, Vietnam has become one of the fastest growing economies. In Southeast Asia, Vietnam has been dubbed "the blockchain country to watch" because of the country's high-tech literacy and engineering resources. According to the World Economic Forum, Vietnam has ranked among the top 10 countries for producing engineering talent.
“Huobi organised the Blockchain Festival in Vietnam to bring industry knowledge, insight, and experts to one of the fastest growing markets in the blockchain and crypto landscape,” said Wu Xing, senior director of Huobi.Pro. “There has been a surge in demand from the Vietnamese market and we hope that by opening up new opportunities here, we can have a positive impact on both the local economy and ecosystem.”
