The Responsible Blockchain World Championship (RBWC) US was launched at the Frontier Technology Exhibition on Oct 29th, 2018 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley. The Frontier Technology Exhibition is another highlight event after the “Focus on Blockchain” 2018 EventBlock World Tour in Silicon Valley co-hosted by EventBlock and CCTV Finance in September 2018. Both RBWC co-chairs and start-up representatives came together to celebrate the launch of the RBWC US at the Venture Capital Summit.
This event is co-hosted by CCTV, NovaOne, NEWDO venture and IDEAS (International Data Engineering and Science Association), and also partnered with NABA (North America Blockchain Association), SV CAFÉ.COM, NETEASE US, etc. 50 distinguished guests from the technology industry convened in Silicon Valley. The event lasted for 10 hours, including keynote speeches by blockchain technology industry leaders and roadshows of blockchain startups.
The Founder of FinTech4Good, Xiaochen Zhang, who is also the UN ESCAP Digital Economy Task Force Expert, analyzed the pros and cons of the Security Token Offering (STO) and market trends, and introduced the five-day training program provided by the Blockchain Funding Academy of FinTech4Good.
From December 3rd to December 7th, FinTech4Good will join hands with STO’s star companies, US regulatory and legal experts to help entrepreneurs from China and other parts of the world to understand how to achieve liquidity in the capital markets through STO issuance and exchange.
Dr. Ann Shin, Co-Founder of Ultrafund, pointed out various financing tools based on blockchain technology and shared his views on the future trend of tokenomics. Roger Royse, President of the Royse Law Firm, also gave a speech on “The Trend of Token Economy”. He expressed concerns that tokens may have potential risks from the legal point of view. Many projects have spent a lot of time on white papers and tokenization. It is, however, rather more important to spend time building a more comprehensive system of financial instruments to achieve long-term market value. Marwan Forzley, CEO and Co-Founder of Veem, gave a speech on “The Development of Blockchain in the Financial Industry”. Veem’s blockchain-based cross-border payment and settlement solutions will not only effectively reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of cross-border payments, but also meet the regulatory requirements through cross-border collaboration.
