The event started with the fireside chat, Aaron Tan, VP of Wadz moderated the session and Anndy provided valuable insights on the surrounding Blockchain industry and as well as his opinion on the ideal implementation of Blockchain technology into supply chain processes. The Wadz team followed up with the launch and introduction with the topic “Data Ownership, Payments Industry & the Unbanked”. The Wadz team collectively communicated the issues in the payments industry, data ownership and emerging markets during the presentation while showcasing the Wadz application as a solution.
Lastly, a panel discussion was held to discuss the surrounding Blockchain climate and their opinions on upcoming applications in the industry. Led by Co-founder of Blockcast.cc Jenny Zheng, the discussion was very fruitful and informative. A variety of topics were discussed including data ownership, financial inclusion, STOs, token fundraisings and even touched on the more controversial topic of Facebook’s Libra.
By 2030, Blockchain will run in the back-end of most applications but no one will be talking about it like we do right now. — Anndy Lian.
This statement by Anndy Lian reinforced the Wadz vision of being an inclusive infrastructure, where Wadz aims to be as accessible as possible to everyone.
Anish Jain CEO of Wadaz mentioned:
“I want to reach out to people who know nothing about cryptocurrencies will be able to use Wadz’s application with zero hassle. This is our ultimate goal!”
Overall, the consensus between the panelists was that the Blockchain space is still in its early stages but it is definitely here to stay and will slowly be incorporated into our everyday life.
