BlockDevs Asia is organizing this year’s Decentralized Innovations Startup Hackathon (DISH2019) together with BlockchainSPACE, SCI, and UnionBank of the Philippines. The hackathon event will now be combined with a fintech conference (Fintech Forum) as the Philippines’ first Inclusive Prosperity Fintech Summit (IPFS). It will be held in two places at the same time, Acceler8 Rockwell, Makati for the Fintech Forum, and Acceler8 Legazpi, Makati for DISH2019 on April 6 – 7, 2019.
The Fintech Forum will be a two-day conference where seasoned speakers across the industry will give insights and share their knowledge about mobile money, borderless payments, blockchain, and more. It will also showcase booths from different fintech companies where attendees can learn about the latest trends and products in financial technology.
The hackathon, DISH 2019, will be a two-day coding, mentoring and workshop event where top developers, analysts, and business enthusiasts will be guided by experienced leaders in the blockchain industry to create a blockchain-based solution that will address real-world problems. It is also an opportunity for the participants to pitch their projects to potential investors.
IPFS serves as the premier platform for anyone wanting to know more about the importance of financial inclusion and blockchain, especially within the field of financial technology. In turn, the organizers hope that this will inspire professionals to create a positive impact within this emerging industry, in order to ensure its sustainable growth.
