Taking a stand — Singapore Fintech Festival 2019
For the second year in a row we attended Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) and it exceeded all expectations. The Monetary Authority of Singapore has married DeepTech and FinTech by combining SFF with the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH). Thus, the event comprised of more than 60,000 attendees and nearly 1,000 exhibitors!
One of the key themes was the Future of Finance, exploring the innovation that can improve the market infrastructure. A lot of attention was dedicated to the potential of blockchain. More than 35%+ of companies at the event were in the blockchain financial markets space, which is a great indication of the potential for this area to shape the future of financial services.
NZ Trade & Enterprise (NZTE) put together a great exhibition that enabled Centrality to wave the NZ FinTech flag on a global level along with 11 other kiwi companies. It was incredible to be a part of the NZ delegation and connect with talented teams across the industry.
To open the event, NZTE introduced the Haka — a ceremonial dance in Māori culture. Plenty of attendees stayed to watch this spectacular ceremony, learn about the culture and meet the New Zealand contingent of businesses on the stand.
SFF ran for three days, which enabled us to showcase our technology and the seamless integration of our tech with our ecosystem DApps to a huge audience. We took attendees through the projects in our ecosystem, including Centrality FinTech, Centrapay, Sylo, Trackback and PLUG. Unsurprisingly, the interest in blockchain is growing rapidly and there was a noticeable difference in the understanding of blockchain technology from the attendees, in comparison to last year.
