First and foremost, huge thanks to all who showed support for our event which was co-organized with PSB Academy on 27th November 2019. The agenda of the event was on Blockchain Industrial Impact and to kick-start the launch of the Wadz Beta application.

The event was a smashing success where guys from all walks of life attended the event — VCs, Blockchain enthusiasts, crypto exchanges, students and even folks who were curious on how to implement cost-efficient solutions into their businesses.

Fireside chat w/ Aaron Tan and Anndy Lian

For the first agenda of the event, Aaron Tan and Anndy Lian had a fireside on the impact of Blockchain technology in the supply chain sector.

Anndy Lian comes from a background as an all-rounded business strategist with over 15 years experience in Asia. He currently plays a pivotal role as the Blockchain Advisor for Asian Productivity Organisation (APO), an intergovernmental organisation committed to improving productivity in the Asia-Pacific region.

During the fireside chat, Anndy provided valuable insights on the surrounding Blockchain industry and as well as his opinion on the ideal implementation of Blockchain technology into supply chain processes.

Up next was a presentation by the Wadz team with the topic “Data Ownership, Payments Industry & the Unbanked”.

The Wadz team collectively communicated the issues in the payments industry, data ownership and emerging markets during the presentation while showcasing the Wadz application as a solution.

The Proof-of-Contribution (PoC) governance protocol presented received high praises from numerous audiences — with many believing that its intention of building an active and positive ecosystem will entirely change the way which merchants and consumers will behave and operate.

An Intimate Panel Discussion

Lastly, an intimate panel discussion was held to discuss the surrounding Blockchain climate and their opinions on upcoming applications in the industry.

Led by Co-founder of Blockcast.cc Jenny Zheng, the discussion was very fruitful and informative. A variety of topics were discussed including data ownership, financial inclusion, STOs, token fundraisings and even touched on the more controversial topic of Facebook’s Libra.

By 2030, Blockchain will run in the back-end of most applications but no one will be talking about it like we do right now. — Anndy Lian

This statement by Anndy Lian reinforced the Wadz vision of being an inclusive infrastructure, where Wadz aims to be as accessible as possible to everyone — where even people who know nothing about cryptocurrencies will be able to use Wadz’s application with zero hassle.

Overall, the consensus between the panelists was that the Blockchain space is still in its early stages but it is definitely here to stay and will slowly be incorporated into our everyday life.

Singapore-based Startup, Wadz, Takes on Traditional Payment Firms with the Beta Launch of its Application

Revolutionary payment application, Wadz, is set to take on traditional payment firms, with its anticipated beta launch on November 25, 2019.

Targeting emerging countries such as Indonesia and Vietnam as a start, Wadz offers an inclusive alternative payment technology that will be of benefit to both consumers and merchants.

Wadz stands out by a number of key features. These include the utilization of blockchain technology to speed up transactions; its easy integration to major shopping cart plug-ins; and near-zero processing fees. Finally, a key benefit to the users of Wadz is that users will now be able to spend their cryptocurrencies as a form of payment at merchants of the Wadz payment network.

One demographic on which Wadz is focusing is the “unbanked”. An estimated 200 million people, in the aforementioned countries, have limited access to banking institutions loans, and e-commerce. The lack of access to these banking services ultimately translates to the inability of these “unbanked” to access critical services such as healthcare. By enabling new payment modalities for these services, Wadz hopes to help these people improve their way of life.

Following the beta launch of its application, Wadz will lead an in-depth discussion on the impact of blockchain technology across industries at PSB Academy City Campus, Singapore on November 27, 2019, at 7:00 pm.

This major blockchain event is expected to gather over 300 participants as they get to know this innovative payment technology while discussing alongside the impact of blockchain on the industries of finance and logistics.

Featured among the distinguished roster of speakers is Anndy Lian, author of the book “Blockchain Revolution 2030” and blockchain advisor for Asian Productivity Organization (APO). His knowledge of Blockchain technology and his work has drawn attention from various international media such as Forbes, Bloomberg, Reuters, Yahoo, Nasdaq, FOX News, The Straits Times, Business Times, ABC News, Singapore Business Review, Asia Business Weekly, CBS News, CNET, ZDNET and many more. Anndy believes that this will revolutionize and redefine traditional businesses.

Wadz CEO, Anish Jain, will also speak in the same forum and views this event as an excellent jumping-off point for Wadz as it goes full steam ahead. “Wadz is off to a promising start after attracting over 50,000 merchants in Indonesia and 5,000 in Vietnam, which are expected to onboard to our platform in the first quarter of 2020,” he says. “Adopting the innovations Wadz offers will help merchants grow their businesses so we are confident that these numbers will further increase as we move along.”

Moderating the forum is Wadz’s Regional VP of Partnerships and passionate blockchain entrepreneur, Aaron Tan.

This forum is open to all. Interested parties can register for free at https://www.eventbrite.sg/e/blockchain-industrial-impact-wadz-beta-launch-tickets-81420696495.
