Bitskwela Mid-Year Review: Key Wins in 2023
What key partnerships, product launches, or strategic decisions would you consider as your organization’s significant wins in the first half of 2023?
Bitskwela celebrates a lot of wins for the first half of 2023. One of the highlights, we launched two sold out Bull or Bear: Events, Bull or Bear: La Union and Bull or Bear: Cebu, in partnership with decision makers from both enterprises and government organizations. Both events are now officially sold out, and have spearheaded the Web3 adoption in the regional scene.
Bitskwela has also secured partnerships with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), Ayala Malls, Go Digital Pilipinas, Philippine Airlines, and SPHERA for Bull or Bear: Cebu.
Last June, Bitskwela flew to Malaysia to give a keynote during Malaysia’s Bitcoin Pizza Party by Cryptobilis. During this event, the team was able to get a look at the Web3 scene abroad, and connect with Malaysian KOLs and industry leaders, all in the spirit for expanded education in Southeast Asia.
Other than those, Bitskwela launched our flagship Content Creator Partner Program in partnership with TikTok. The Content Creator Partner Program is an exclusive program that provides Bitskwela’s flagship educational and research products and services to aid Web3 educreators in their content. Led by our resident content creators Chris Rodil and Tony Rebamonte, and our Chief Marketing Officer JC Macalintal, the Content Creator Partner Program provides both due diligence and research for creators, and Web3 storytelling best practices.
Addressing Challenges: Bitskwela Adaptive Strategies
What were the primary challenges your organization faced during the first half of 2023, and how did you address them?
The bear market definitely lessened public interest around Web3, since the interest of Filipinos were piqued during the bull run for money making schemes.
But Bitskwela’s educational initiative scaled more during the bear market, for we believe that it is during these times that the real potential of Web3 and blockchain technology can truly be understood—where use cases and solutions to real world problems are talked about, and not just the money making aspect of Web3.
Improvements and Metrics: Comparing 2023 with Previous Years
Is there a specific metric that has significantly improved in the first half of 2023 compared to the previous year?
Bitskwela reached four million views on TikTok, and the Crypto Education Philippines Community by Bitskwela reached 10,000 community members.

Which emerging trends or technologies in the crypto space are you most excited about or planning to incorporate into your future strategies and why?
At Bitskwela, we’re most excited about Web3 companies and brands interjecting educational campaigns about their products to acquire more users and community members.
Other than that, we’re also excited about Web2 enterprises building Web3 technology for their user base, Bitskwela partners with these Web2 enterprises who want their user base to understand the applications and how-to’s of Web3 technology.
Goals and Plans for the Second Half of 2023
What are your company’s primary goals and plans for the second half of 2023?
Bitskwela’s DNA is to help Filipinos own a piece of the internet, and guide Filipinos from interest to participation. Our primary goal for the second half of 2023 is to continuously churn Web3 educational content including but not limited to guides, courses, and modules to help people understand Web3 and blockchain technology, and its applications.
In addition to this, Bitskwela is also securing exclusive partnerships with Web3 companies in different ecosystems to make the learning process more actionable for our users and community members.
Bitskwela will launch more strategic and enterprise partnerships with both Web2 and Web3 enterprises to add more value to Bitskwela users, community members, and partners.
