I’ve just seen the speaker line up for Bitcoin Singapore Conference 2013 and they’ve even invited Asher Tan from Coinjar (he’s from Malaysia). Pretty impressive but having it at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore might be a turn off for some as the early bird ticket price is hefty at SGD180 (before 10 Oct 2013).
Nonetheless, I’ve always believe it’s the right time to launch a Bitcoin Business in Asia side since the regulations over here, is not as restrictive as the ones in USA. I also predict Bitcoin usage is set to explode in Asia, especially for gambling, retail, hotel and the travel industry.
Well, I’ve got lots to do before November and drop me an email if you are also attending the Conference (admin AT bitcoinmalaysia.com) so we can catch up for networking purposes.
