This second edition of Crypto Expo Asia also unveiled its latest lineup of headline speakers. The speakers include Henryk Abucewicz Tan, Head of Institutional Sales at Coinhako, the first crypto-asset exchange to receive in-principle approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore; Sebastian Zilliacus, managing director of EMURGO Media, the official commercial arm and a founding entity of the Cardano blockchain; Karthik Rajeswaran, VP of Product at Headquarters (, a web3 finance operations toolkit; Julian Kwan, co-founder and CEO of InvestaX, a Singapore-licensed tokenization SaaS platform and IX Swap, the first automated market maker for tokenized assets; Anuj Shankar, CEO of Luganodes, a Swiss-operated institutional-grade staking service provider; Timothy Tan, Head of Sales and Marketing at Cactus Custody, the institutional custody arm of the leading digital assets financial services ecosystem Matrixport; and Dr. Ben Zhang, co-founder and COO of NodeReal, the leading one-stop blockchain infrastructure and service provider.

"Institutional interest in blockchain and web3 technology remains at a high despite fears of a prolonged Crypto Winter. As the entire industry approaches maturity, as evidenced by increased regulatory oversight, now is the time for public and private sector stakeholders to work more closely together than ever before," said Crypto Expo Asia Director Michael Xuan.

"South and Southeast Asia have some of the world's highest crypto adoption rates. It will come as no surprise that Crypto Expo Asia is seeing record interest from industry associations as well as global and regional players, keen to further discourse around hot-button issues, including artificial intelligence, CBDCs (central bank digital currencies), web3 regulation, metaverse adoption, and blockchain gaming," he added.

"ACCESS Malaysia is excited to contribute to the discussions around how crypto assets will reimagine the financial ecosystem. As the sector evolves toward mainstream acceptance spurred by the ongoing regulatory developments both in the region as well as globally, we believe Crypto Expo Asia will be a timely avenue to discuss the path ahead for the industry," said ACCESS Blockchain Association Malaysia President Harpreet Singh.

This year also marks the debut of the Web3 Expo Asia Summit, a sub-event under the auspices of Crypto Expo Asia dedicated to panel sessions around NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and the metaverse.
