Carrying the theme “Blockchain Technology Application: Current & Future Economy,” there were three speakers who were already quite experienced in this field.

In addition to the two things above, Blockchain can be used to grow digital assets whose value continues to rise in the long term. As we know, a crypto asset that is quite popular today, namely Bitcoin, its value has increased by thousands of percent since its launch. Apart from BTC, other coins have the potential to become digital/crypto assets that can be utilized for future asset growth.
