On April 25th, ICONLOOP was invited by the Malaysian Blockchain Association to attend the Bloconomic Excellence Award, an event focused on exploring blockchain use cases and addressing opportunities and challenges ahead.

In attendance was Josh Choi, ICONLOOP’s Director of Public Affairs, who held a keynote speech on mass adoption and the importance of the public sector. During his talk, he introduced ICONLOOP’s smart city strategy to combine public services with private blockchains, as a demonstration of how mass blockchain adoption could become a reality.

Josh also participated in a panel discussion entitled “Initiatives in blockchain establishment towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0”, in which the panelists discussed the commonalities between blockchain technology’s core values and the fourth industrial revolution (ie. accessibility, trust and human-centric design).
