The Blockchain Lead Organization & Knowledge Center (The BLOKC) has conducted a review of their 2023 milestones in the Philippines, specifically focusing on their initiatives and community engagement activities related to the Arbitrum blockchain.

2023 Review

In the last three months of 2023, the partnership actively promoted blockchain adoption in the Philippines through a series of events and community meetups. 

In November, The BLOCK shared that over 800 people, including students, working professionals, and professors from Far Eastern University-Alabang IT students and City of Malabon University, participated in its initiative to explore more opportunities in Arbitrum. 

In addition, they also conducted their inaugural online event, “Arbitrum Genesis,” which convened industry professionals and developers to explore the potential of the platform.

Further, in an effort to expand Arbitrum’s reach throughout the Philippines, The BLOKC also visited Mindanao, specifically Mapúa Malayan Colleges Mindanao (Mapua MCM), to share these opportunities. Consequently, the event also marked the soft launch of BLOKC BOX, a 999 non-fungible token (NFT) collection that will be given to community members during events organized for Arbitrum.

This event was followed by another in collaboration with the Davao DeFi Community PH and the DeFi ecosystem Gains Network, where attendees were able to meet founders, entrepreneurs, and students wanting to build on Arbitrum.

Aside from Mapua MCM, Arbitrum and the BLOKC also visited the University of Santo Tomas and had a webinar with University of Batangas. 

“In just THREE months during Q4 of 2023, we have onboarded 13 Universities in the Philippines, ready to explore opportunities in Arbitrum. We have also recruited 16 highly qualified Arbitrum Ambassadors in the Philippines and 8 project partners for Arbitrum Tech integration and community activations!” The BLOKC posted

Accordingly, the firm announced that it will host Arbitrum’s Developers Bootcamp in the early part of 2024.

Last October, The BLOKC announced its intention to drive the adoption of the Arbitrum blockchain in the Philippines.

The BLOKC, acting as the representative and entity of the Arbitrum Foundation in the Philippines, aims to increase awareness and adoption of Arbitrum solutions among Ethereum developers. 

Moreover, the joint initiative sets its focus on empowering developers and companies in the country through activities such as Developer Bootcamps, community meetups, and hackathons, with the overarching goal of nurturing the growth of decentralized applications (dApps).

Arbitrum, developed by Offchain Labs, serves as an Ethereum Layer 2 solution designed to improve network scalability and reduce transaction costs. Tailored specifically for the Ethereum blockchain, this Layer 2 scaling solution aims to expedite smart contract transactions and decrease associated transaction expenses.
