What do you think is the most important blockchain and/or crypto development in the Philippines/Globally in 2019?
After working on multiple blockchain-related projects myself, there’s a good number of various quality blockchain cases. Venture production studio focused on building and scaling tools, disruptive startups, core integration components, B2C DApps and enterprise software products powered by decentralized technologies, education and a lot more.
I would love to highlight the world’s first asset-backed cryptocurrency advocating a resource-based economy for humanity and was created to distribute the value of natural resources and selected philanthropic assets directly to the people and organizations to ensure that Humanity has a stake in the protection and conservation of our planet. The Maharlika Coin (MHLK) is the world’s first asset-backed, wealth distribution cryptocurrency. Issued by the Swiss-based Formula Green Foundation in partnership with the Maharlika Trust, the use of MHLK advocates a “Resource-Based Economy or Shared Resources Economy” for humanity where we believe that the world’s basic resources should be protected for the people and by the people. The key clusters which provide the value of MHLK encompass key advocacies which protect and manage our water supply, the transition and use of Fusion Energy, ocean & reefs conservation, key minerals, ensuring our food supply, and most of all, human capital.
What is your company/project/group looking forward to this 2020 in this space?
- We are looking to create more innovative campaigns to promote projects.
- Expect more roadshows for the coming years.
- Looking to expand and have an office all throughout SEA for Asia Token Fund News.
- Block PR Asia is looking to create more appealing helpful strategies to help companies and projects.
What do you personally look forward to in this space?
What do you see for the Philippines in 2020 in this space?
More interested participants and enthusiasts to learn more about Blockchain Technology. By all measures, 2019 was a remarkable year for the blockchain and crypto space. We have a lot to look forward to in the next year. Overall, the next year is shaping up to be crucial for the blockchain technology and digital assets ecosystems. I can see the year 2020 when the major blockchain protocols and digital assets continue to grow in usage, metrics and adoption rates.
