Could you share something about yourself with our readers?
My name is Nicole and I am currently in charge of Marketing at Infinity Blockchain Labs – one of the largest Blockchain studios in the world. Our in-house team of 40 developers come from various areas around the world with one mission – demystifying and incorporating Blockchain in everyday life and services. I have been involved with Marketing at consumer goods industry, Project Management for multi-national institutions and this is my first endeavor with a hi-tech company. I have always been thrilled to see how this top-notch technology can transform businesses and specifically businesses in Vietnam through breakthrough, cost efficient and forward thinking solutions.
Could you give our readers a quick teaser on what you will be speaking about at the show?
Sure thing. In tandem with startup movement in Vietnam, blockchain promises unprecedented and unrivaled approaches in starting up a new business or disrupting existing businesses. I am keen on discussing with the plenary on the general blockchain landscape and how Blockchain can inspire and trigger untapped opportunities for startups in Vietnam.
Why is this topic close to your heart?
I used to be a startup and encountered various issues when starting up – among which resources (manpower, finance etc.) restraint always stands in the way. The decentralized and resource sharing concept of Blockchain does intrigue me both personally and professionally and I believe the technology itself can open up other efficient approaches for startups and small and medium sized businesses in Vietnam.
What do you think the key challenges are around the future of Blockchain in Vietnam?
Challenges are abundant with new tech in Vietnam including Blockchain. I think mindset is always the first barrier to turning this technology mainstream in Vietnam. The concept of Blockchain is novel, hence not universally adopted across different groups of stakeholders. See beyond your comfort zone and face the possible disruption/revolution, that’s when you can open up your mind and get ready to demystify and adopt this future changing technology.
Why are you excited to attend the show?
Seamless has always been my favorite as the dynamic propeller for players in Payment, Retail and E-commerce to discuss new partnership and business approaches. Such industries are also promising conduits to Blockchain disruption as with existing businesses and I believe Infinity Blockchain Labs will have numerous opportunities to discuss and follow up with diverse industry players at this extensive event. Huge thanks again to Seamless organizers and I can’t wait to see everyone in Ho Chi Minh city this September.
