The Philippines is predominantly Web2. Outside of the country, they are already on Web3. Filipinos are ready to be involved in the adoption and development of this innovative technology. This is a great opportunity to learn as we transition to blockchain technology,” Lim said.

Chezka Gonzales, co-founder of Philippine Blockchain Week and founder of Women of Substance NFT, added that “the Philippines has the promise of becoming the blockchain capital of Asia. To achieve this, we need to learn more about the technology and see it at work. We want more Filipinos to educate themselves about blockchain and experience how it can improve their lives.”

The first Philippine Block Awards will take place to honor the men and women behind building the blockchain ecosystem in the Philippines.
