With a mission to push the country forward by empowering the next generation of builders, creators, and founders in the web3 space, the Filipino-led blockchain community Web3PH hosted Panimula, an “exclusive gathering for key technology figures from both the public and private sectors.”

The gathering, which happened on January 26, 2024, was held in collaboration with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and ICP.Hub Philippines.

In a statement, Web3PH shared that Panimula was attended by different personalities from different government bodies, private enterprises, and crypto-focused community organizations.

Moreover, the gathering was said to be not just a community meetup, but also a strategic arena for these stakeholders to explore potential partnerships.

During the event, DICT-Industry Development Bureau (DICT-IDB) Director Emmy Lou Delfin urged the present stakeholders to utilize technology to open opportunities for Filipinos: 

“As we stand at this crossroads, the possibilities are boundless. The enthusiasm of everyone present today reflects the incredible potential that these technologies hold—the power to reshape industries, economies, and most importantly, the lives of fellow Filipinos.” 

This was seconded by Web3PH Core Member Bea Llana, adding that the gathering of government bodies, private enterprises, and crypto-focused community organizations is the start of different initiatives the will benefit Filipinos. 

“By bringing together government, private enterprises, and community organizations, we create a space for all these separated bodies to connect and have meaningful discussions—all for the single goal of taking coordinated steps to web3 adoption,” Llana stressed. 

Another Web3PH core member, Justin Wee, then presented the community’s calendar of activities, which comprises a series of events “strategically designed” to engage various stakeholders—builders, creatives, and normies, among others. 

As per Wee, stakeholders are welcome to join the activities mentioned that can strengthen their goal to foster collaboration among all participating entities.

“Being for the community, it is only necessary that these events are powered by the community itself. We want to involve everyone in the planning and execution of these events to ensure that the initiatives are aligned with the needs and aspirations of those we inevitably serve,” he explained.
