How to Survive in the Crypto Bear Market – Blockchain Fair Asia Panel Discussion


Our Managing Director & Co-Founder will be participating in a panel discussion at Blockchain Fair Asia 2018. If you’re in Manila, don’t miss this opportunity to hear insights on how to survive in the crypto bear market. 

Collin Thompson will take part in a panel with leading VC professionals to discuss the challenges faced by blockchain start-ups in South East Asia at the Blockchain Fair Asia (October 11-12, 2018 Manila).

The session will address current issues impacting the ICO and cryptocurrency market which has seen significant losses, continued fluctuations and a reduction in investor activity. Panelists will discuss the current state of affairs, the changing nature of the blockchain, ICO and crypto space and offer advice to entrepreneurs and founders about how they can survive and thrive at a time when funding is much harder to obtain.

Intrepid Ventures has been active in the industry for over five years and is particularly active in Asia. The company has developed an extensive network of blockchain start-up groups across Asia and the world with just under 10,000 members and is actively working on blockchain education through its publication The Blockchain Review. Beyond the company’s events and educational initiatives, it has worked with companies to help launch their ICO and advised international organisations such as AIA and International Finance Corporation (IFC).

The company is currently developing the Metabase Network, a high-performance blockchain business engine and developer toolbox designed to empower innovators and entrepreneurs, high growth startups and small businesses and kick ass designers, developers and engineers to create, build, and lead the industries of tomorrow.
