Economic growth in Southeast Asia is pushing business and consumers to look to other areas of opportunity. Blockchain, the core technology behind all cryptocurrency services, is providing new prospects that could result in massive adoption across the region.
In countries such as Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia governments are looking to or are already investing in blockchain technologies for industrial implementation, integration into electoral and health care systems. Some are even looking to use it for anti-money laundering monitoring and policing. Most, however, are still focused on using it for B2B and B2C.
“Southeast Asia is where the growth opportunity for blockchain is. There is a strong need to rally and connect stakeholders in the blockchain community to expedite the technology’s adoption the region,” said Patrick Palacios, chief executive officer of digital customer loyalty services provider Appsolutely.
