CoinGecko would like to introduce the first episode of the Crypto In Asia Show!
This is an inaugural and experimental show where thought leaders come together to share knowledge and information with each other.
As the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry is still relatively nascent, there are often misconceptions and confusion when it comes to understanding what is happening on the regional/national scale unless you are informed by someone “in the area”. This is the main objective for Crypto In Asia, where developers, influencers and thought leaders from different countries come together and discuss what’s happening on the ground.
This first episode features the following hosts:
See Eun from Nonce Co-working Space Korea, who also manages Studio Decentral - The first Korean blockchain/cryptocurrency Youtube channel.
Koji Higashi, a Crypto Thought Leader in Japan who runs the Youtube Channel Bitcoiner Hanseikai.
Bobby Ong, Co-Founder of @CoinGecko, a crypto data aggregator tracking over 4,000 cryptocurrencies from over 300 exchanges.
The discussion ranges from regulation in Korea, Japan and Malaysia to development of cryptocurrency exchanges as well as trader sentiments in Asia among many other talking points.
