On November 12-13, 2019, CoinMarketCap – the world’s number one cryptocurrency information site with over 125 million active users globally – held its first-ever global conference: The Capital. It was held in Singapore at the picturesque Victoria Theatre, Singapore’s oldest performing arts venue.
As one of the major sponsors of the event, AAX had a booth at the venue for visitors to learn more about the platform, our plans, and business opportunities. During the event, we also distributed free BTC to anyone who signed up to give people a chance to try our products.
Thor Chan, CEO of AAX, said:
“The Capital provided a great opportunity for us at AAX to expose key industry leaders to our platform and generate awareness about the next generation cryptocurrency exchange and its special relationship with London Stock Exchange Group. It has also been our pleasure to support CoinMarketCap in its endeavor to deepen the discourse around the future of blockchain and cryptocurrency.”
On the first day of the event, our COO, Michael Wong, took center stage and shared our perspectives on the crypto industry with the audience. The title of his presentation was: “Cryptocurrency & Digital Asset Exchanges: The New Generation”.
He described in depth some of the major changes occurring in the industry around institutional interest, regulation and mainstream adoption, but also what cryptocurrency exchanges need to do and strive towards in order to remain relevant and meet the rising demands of a growing user base.
Michael also spoke about how AAX has raised the bar in terms of performance, integrity and security, and how it works to create a trusted environment where investors can trade with confidence.
In addition to meeting industry leaders, influencers and crypto enthusiasts, the team also attended other fintech events during their stay, such as BlockShow Asia, and held meetings with local associates and industry participants to further cement our relationships in Singapore itself.
For us, it has been an absolute pleasure to take part in The Capital, to learn together with other industry participants, and to share our vision for the future of digital assets.
