Kicking July off with a bang, The Blockchain Hub hosted a full-housed crypto meet at 9 Temasek Boulevard – an address most are already familiar with as Asia’s blockchain sanctuary. Singapore’sleading blockchain advisories, Talenta and BlockConnectors, were the brains behind the eventful meet that was driven by parallel visions of creating an all-inclusive platform for blockchain education and stimulation.
For a cryptocurrency event, the evening was an unconventional one considering the impressively diverse range of topics covered. While most blockchain meets are hosted to drive exposure for mercantile projects, Crypto Night chose to take the educational route by offering an informative side stage that ran simultaneously in addition to the usual corporate pitches over by the main studio. Its organizers understood that the 200-strong crowd were unique individuals who came from a myriad of backgrounds and it is only through offering varied content that engagement can be maximized.
“We understand that there is interest in ICOs and in blockchain projects. However, we also understand that there is a role to play to educate the business community about Blockchain and cryptocurrency. Last night we offered several sessions to demystify Blockchain for those that are new to it. Events like this one are necessary for ongoing health of blockchain.”

While pitches housed at the main stage proved to be remarkable with promising ideas and innovations, content shared on the side stage packed just as much of a punch. Topics covered during the 4-hour run addressed diverse perspectives, ranging from a basic introduction into blockchain technology, to regulatory outlook of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), and privacy issues in view of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
When it came to the most prominent takeaways of the night, many agreed on the same: prime connections can be built through a gathering of such scale. With a reasonable proportion of the crowd made up by influential industry figures and high-profile representatives, attendees had ample opportunity to meet business developers from the likes of Ethereum Foundation, Huobi, Consensys, Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange and many others through spontaneous mingling.
“Crypto Night was a great collaboration between BlockConnectors and Talenta. The experienced and well-connected team put together an evening of all things crypto featuring well-known representatives from the industry. The event catered to a group of Project Owners, Investors and Blockchain Enthusiast, and delightfully saw a huge turnout from the respective groups. This is just the beginning of more Crypto Nights as the team strives to make it a sought-after event for the Crypto Community in Singapore and beyond.”

Representatives from both Talenta and BlockConnectors agreed that this event was an effective platform for gathering people within the blockchain community; as well as fostering strong synergies through the networks built. Following the success of the event, key representatives have expressed interest in progressing Crypto Night into a monthly affair at The Blockchain Hub.
