Tezos Asia 2019 –

The Future Frontier for Blockchain Technology

Proudly organized by Tocqueville Group and Tezos Southeast Asia

Blockchain technology has seen substantial development and growth in both capability and adoption over the past few years, and 2019 promises to be equally exciting. The increasing momentum and potential to disrupt are two of the many reasons why blockchain technology is here to stay. As infrastructure and network health improve, developers are able to focus more time, energy, and resources on building products firmly rooted in real-world use cases, making it easier for us to incorporate blockchain into our daily lives. Like any emerging technology, the road to mass adoption for blockchain is not without challenges, but the underlying innovation nevertheless continues to evolve and improve.


Governments and businesses alike are eagerly, but cautiously, watching blockchain technology closely to observe how it progresses, waiting for something to signal the right time to experiment with this new tech. Tezos is an open source blockchain protocol which has amassed a global community attracted to its transparency and security. The potential reliability Tezos offers is unprecedented for a blockchain network, and it’s this reliability that will drive disruption across industries. This seminar will focus on three prominent topics in the blockchain industry: smart contracts, file storage, and formal verification.


Join us in this first Tezos Seminar in Asia organized by Tocqueville Group and Tezos Southeast Asia to explore how the Tezos ecosystem has grown and how its key features will revolutionize various industries such as human resources, financial auditing, automation, file storage, and supply chain management towards Singapore’s vision as Smart Nation.
