In Blockchain, we trust.  Can this years Bloconomic prove to be a real turning point for industry and global economies?  Increasingly high tensions continue to be felt in the traditional markets due to the China - US trade wars, and meanwhile, Europe braces itself for the United Kingdoms departure from the EU.  The Expo is set to have all eyes and ears keenly focused on the thought leaders and innovators exploring innovative solutions to these new opportunities we face.

Bloconomic (Blockchain Economic Expo 2019) is organised by Alphacap Berhad in collaboration with Malaysia Blockchain Association (MBA) to address some of the fundamental misconceptions in the broader community about Blockchain and to promote the many advantages offered for society and business.  Members of government, business and society will convene at the splendid Connexion Conference and Event Centre in Bangsar which is rapidly becoming the preferred venue in Kuala Lumpur.  The conference centre is an advanced, fresh urban venue purpose-built for occasions such as this.

Last year’s Bloconomic Economic Summit was a huge success seeing a footfall of 3000 attendees, 150 media partners, 30 association members and regulators, 250 investors and venture capitalists, 70 speakers from around the globe and ten academy and universities from all around the world.  

This year's event is expected to be equally as significant, again bringing in government delegates, exhibitors, regulators, research institutes, financial institution, fintech companies, Blockchain technology and industry application companies, cryptocurrency and digital asset-related companies.

As you might expect at an event of such magnitude, there is a fantastic line up of speakers and guests including VVIP YB Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan, Minister of Entrepreneur Development.
