LONDON, June 2, 2022 /NewsDirect/–The Vietnam blockchain industry forum co-hosted by Huobi Global and OneBlock Labs drew to a successful close on May 28, with leading experts from Huobi Global and various fields of the Vietnamese blockchain industry having avidly discussed the finer points of the journey toward Web3 and the Metaverse, to the benefit of numerous forum participants.
Titled “The Road to Web3.0 & Metaverse Mass Adoption”, the forum comprised fireside chats, panel discussions and audience Q&A. More than 500 people participated in the event.
Fifteen guests participated in the forum include Samuel Tang, Senior Director for Business Development at Huobi Global, Leon Truong, Vice President of the Association of Financial Advisors, Cuong Tran, Co-Founder K300 Ventures, Trung Anh Nguyen, Co-Fouder TheCoinDesk, and Cris D Tran, Managing Director of Viet Nam Startup Investment Fund.
Samuel Tang opened the event by sharing Huobi’s outlook and development plan in Vietnam: “Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency markets, and also one of the 10 largest markets in the world. Established in 2013, Huobi is one of the leading digital asset trading platforms in the world. Huobi’s most outstanding achievements are its security, liquidity and stability.”
To boost growth in Vietnam’s blockchain market, Huobi Incubator – Huobi’s incubation arm – has established a US$10 million incubation fund to discover and support emerging developers and projects in Vietnam, Southeast Asia, and beyond.”
“The crypto market is growing rapidly in Vietnam. As the world’s leading blockchain and crypto asset company, Huobi sees the Vietnamese market as an important component in its global expansion plans,” said Samuel Tang. “We believe our expertise in the blockchain field will greatly support the development of the blockchain technology community and innovative projects in Vietnam.”
During the first panel, Samuel Tang and four other panelists discussed metaverse mass adoption and speculated on just when the Web3 experience will make its way into our day-to-day routines.
Cris D. Tran from Vietnam Startup Investment Fund discussed the road to Web3 and its application scenarios. Kelvin Phan from Moon Knight Labs discussed the Future of NFTs & the Metaverse.
“The metaverse will gradually replace parts of our daily routines. Many services and product ecosystems are transitioning to the metaverse to enhance the real-world experience for customers,” said Mr. Leon Truong, Vice President of the Association of Financial Advisors.
The last panel talked about the Blockchain Human Resources landscape in Vietnam. During the panel, Dr. Binh Nguyen, founder of the RMIT Fintech Crypto Hub, said, “Since 2016, the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology has recognized that blockchain will soon change the economy, financial systems and society. At the time we began creating suitable educational products, and later introduced blockchain to our curriculum in 2020. Most of our graduates have gone on to work at major companies in the industry. In October 2022, RMIT plans to launch a blockchain business major for Web3, contributing to the creation of a new class of human talent for Vietnam.”
“We are heartened to see many participants share their understanding of blockchain technology, Web3, Metaverse and NFT. Everyone’s understanding of this fast-growing and exciting industry has become more profound since the forum,” said Huobi’s Samuel Tang. “The key intention of such forums lies around enriching the knowledge of the blockchain enthusiast community. I believe, firmly, that we have achieved this goal and Huobi looks forward to actively participating in Vietnam’s blockchain landscape in the near future.”
