Ng Yi Ming, OpenNodes Managing Partner for the Tribe, said:
It’s time for us to appreciate the new reality for business and technology in the light of COVID-19. It seems that the number of new companies that appeared to serve the blockchain protocol level has decreased last year, and more companies have appeared at the blockchain application level. The coming year looks promising for blockchain-based financing, as banks and other existing financial institutions will play a much more important role after COVID-19. The tireless efforts of IMDA and the support of the blockchain community in Singapore and beyond have contributed to the growth of this ecosystem.
