Stablecoin Summit 2023: Asia’s Pivotal Stablecoin Summit
Singapore, renowned as a global blockchain hub, has once again solidified its position in the ever-evolving world of digital finance by playing host to Stablecoin Summit 2023.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) recently introduced its groundbreaking Stablecoin Regulatory Framework, receiving enthusiastic international acclaim. This move further cements the nation-state’s role as a pivotal player in the blockchain industry.
Consequently, it is fitting that Singapore has been chosen as the host city for the inaugural Stablecoin Summit, scheduled to convene at the iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore on September 15, 2023.
The key focus was on Stablecoins and how its growth would be mighty impactful for the overall crypto industry.
The stalwarts from the Stablecoin teams assembled together to convey their messaging and thoughts behind the Stablecoin Regulatory Framework that will be in play as well as how it can be a growth catalyst for the overall crypto industry.
The event, organized jointly by XREX and the Unitas Foundation, promises to be a pioneering gathering focusing on the transformative potential of stablecoins within fintech, cross-border transactions, and business-to-business (B2B) payments.
The summit aims to spark innovation and foster collaborative efforts within the financial sector in Singapore and beyond, immediately following the TOKEN2049 conference.
Stablecoin Summit 2023 speakers:
The Stablecoin Summit will feature influential thought leaders such as Cynthia Wu, the co-founder and COO of Matrixport; Lennix Lai, the Global Chief Commercial Officer of OKX; and Hassan Ahmed, the Country Director of Singapore at Coinbase.
These experts will engage in discussions on the practical implementation of digital currencies for financial institutions, cross-border merchants, and small business owners, and how these developments impact the everyday consumer.
Attendees can look forward to participating in conversations with leading stablecoin providers and protocols, including Circle, CELO, Mento Labs, Unitas, and Goldfinch.
Wayne Huang, the co-founder and CEO of XREX, expressed his pride in bringing the summit to life, stating, “XREX is proud to bring this summit to life with partners and speakers from organizations who share our vision of stablecoin adoption in real-world use cases.”
XREX, a blockchain-enabled financial institution with a focus on emerging markets like India, has witnessed firsthand how stablecoin payments have resolved USD liquidity challenges, providing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and merchants with access to the global market.
Huang boldly asserted, “We’ve seen first-hand how stablecoin payments have solved USD liquidity issues and helped small and medium enterprises and merchants access the global market. We believe stablecoins will be the next trillion-dollar industry.”
It’s astonishing to consider that less than a decade ago, the notion of sending billions of dollars internationally without the involvement of a trusted third party was deemed impractical. Sceptics dismissed the idea of transferring substantial sums for mere cents in transaction fees as a far-fetched dream.
However, the financial landscape has undergone a dramatic transformation, granting individuals, businesses, banks, and governments access to stable, reliable, and trustless transactions of almost any size, all thanks to stablecoins.
