With more than 8,000 attendees and 75 speakers, including the likes of IBM, Consensus Singapore was a major hit. Consensus Singapore is hosted by Coindesk and comes on the heels of the massively popular Consensus 2018 in New York City.
Consensus Singapore was designed to integrate the global community, particularly Asia, into the emerging blockchain industry conferences. The conference took place in the context of the larger TechXLR8 conference at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore where 6 different industries assembled under one roof. Leaders and enthusiasts from the Internet of Things (IoT) to Project Kairos Asia all participated in conjunction with Consensus Singapore in an amalgamation of Asian tech innovation.
Orichal Partners – the blooming multi-strategy digital asset investment and blockchain advisory firm – hosted a closing event at Consensus Singapore, the Blockchain VIP Invitational.
The Orichal Partners Blockchain VIP Invitational was a huge success and included some high-profile co-sponsors such as media sponsor CoinsNetwork and co-hosts like Allbit and DNA. The event was helped set up by co-host Events Protocol, whose co-founder Melissa Lou commented:
“We are proud to be a part of SG Blockchain VIP Invitational! Event Protocol, with our technology layer, will make organizing events like these hassle-free! We’re so excited to be at the forefront of integrating blockchain into the events industry.”
The event took place at Adrift by David Myers in the Marina Bay Sands following the end of the of the second and final day of Consensus Singapore. A myriad of investors and startup projects attended, including co-sponsor Allbit, who was really excited about the opportunity to work with Orichal Partners:
“Orichal’s work is outstanding. After witnessing their experienced in-depth advice catered to the projects we have worked with, we are happy to support them in the Korean market.”
Notable sponsors Plutux, RCHAIN, IDCM, and Polymath, who joined the event along with cryptocurrency exchange CoinSuper, whose Head of Business Development Justin Leung, commented:
“This event has been great, during this Consensus week in Singapore, it’s probably the biggest and most exclusive networking event I’ve been to, and it’s a lot of fun. I’m really excited to be in the same room with all the who’s who in the industry. Orichal and I have a strong relationship, with mutual respect, and we are glad that we are moving the industry forward together.”
Orichal Partners is an emerging multi-strategy investment and finance firm focusing on blockchain advisory services. Founded by a team of financial and investment experts with vast experience in high-profile financial firms such as JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, Orichal Partners is aiming to guide upstart projects and ICOs in the booming Asian market.
Scottie Siu, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Orichal Partners, commented on their successful Blockchain VIP Invitational event saying:
“It was a pleasure to host the Blockchain VIP Invitational to end the final day of Consensus Singapore. We wanted to give back to the community who have supported us throughout our journey and helped us generate significant traction in the blockchain industry.”
Orichal Partners is looking to use the Blockchain VIP Invitational and the connections they made to launch a diverse financial services platform for the evolving industry of ICOs and blockchain startups in Asia. According to another partner at Orichal Partners, Anthony:
“Companies haven’t thought about how they will deal with balancing investors’ demands of getting the tokens listed versus managing their project’s roadmap with its associated ‘target price/return’ on their tokens. Unfortunately, most projects assume their tokens will moon without thinking about the token distribution when designing their composition. They also fail to consider the correct time of listing. For example, they will list when there’s no MVP or beta available.”
His statements were re-iterated by Orichal’s Seoul ICO Advisor Marisol:
“Many come to us asking us to save them after listing. They should be planning ahead so we can strategize their market making with our marketing partners.”
As the industry continues to evolve, especially taking into consideration the new wave of digital assets on the horizon and looming regulatory environments, firms like Orichal Partners seek to become the standard for multi-strategy finance and blockchain investment advisories in the region.
