Blockchain Summit Singapore

Part of the Blockchain Global Summit series, the Singapore instalment brings together industry leaders from around Asia, exploring how blockchain technology can impact almost any industry. The speakers are largely from well-known established companies rather than cryptocurrencies and blockchain startups, providing keen insights on the technology's place in established businesses.

Blockchain APAC Melbourne

It bills itself as Australia's biggest enterprise blockchain event, attracting over 30 speakers and 500 delegates in one packed day. Discrete subject areas being covered include the technology's role in disrupting existing supply chains, payment and merchant services, education and SaaS, with an emphasis on regulatory needs and networking to be prepared for the disruptive potential of these new systems.


An accessible and entertaining convention intended to be about all things crypto, but especially networking, recruiting and "even some shill[ing]" in its own words.

Expect to find a range of upcoming projects, and some of the best-known influencers in the space.

Block Hedge Asia 3rd Edition

This unique event is especially focused on Thailand, and the potential of the country to become South-East Asia's second-leading blockchain capital after Singapore. It's intended to let anyone discover the potential of the area in practical terms, with a specific focus on understanding the state of the industry in Thailand.

It's intended to be a tightly-focused event around the two key themes of practical applications and limitations of blockchain technology, and investing in the cryptocurrency space.
