Blockchain in Korea

Blockchain technology has become a worldwide trend in recent years.  However, not so many people understand the technicalities and innovation behind it. The interest in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency hit a record high in Korea recently.  We saw many youths flocking to catch a bite of it. That has led to the rise of notable Cryptocurrency exchanges in Korea. The South Korean government has also stepped in to regulate Cryptocurrency trading while putting measures to ensure its adoption in the mainstream fintech infrastructure.

The Global Startup Conference will feature Blockchain and Cryptocurrenyc industry experts like Roger Ver (, Moon Gyeongil (Director at Seoul Startup Hub), Teppei Nakano (Namcoin), Grace Choi (Cointime Korea) among others.

These leaders will share insights on Blockchain technologies, Policies AI, Fintech, Media, Energy, Healthcare and security.
