Crypto Valley at the Singapore FinTech Festival 2018

Crypto Valley Meets Asia

Switzerland sits in the heart of Europe - and its blockchain and crypto scene has become a well-respected hub not only on the continent but all around the world. At the Crypto Valley Association, we believe it is worthwhile building bridges across borders and strengthening the world-wide ecosystem.

To this end, we are traveling to Singapore this fall to attend the Singapore FinTech Festival - connecting Crypto Valley with Asia and in the process making the blockchain world a little smaller. Follow along with us and visit us at Hall 4 Booth 4B19 from Nov 12-14.
