10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In Asia



  In 2018, Asia was one of the leading regions in terms of growth of blockchain jobs, cryptocurrency usage, innovation, and general openness. Despite some early woes with China banning ICOs, China still produces nearly 70% of crypto mining activity.


  For users and entrepreneurs, the Asian ecosystem is in general a friendly one. For example, in Singapore Bitcoin is taxed as a good rather than a currency, setting a 7% flat tax for trades or purchases using Bitcoin. In Japan, messenger giant, LINE, was just granted a crypto exchange license from the Japanese financial regulator. In Korea, news just broke that the country’s largest entertainment company would be launching its own token.

  对于用户和企业来说,亚洲区块链生态系统总体而言是友好的。例如,在新加坡,比特币被当作商品而非货币进行征税,对使用比特币进行交易的买卖设定7%的统一税率;在日本,通讯软件巨头LINE 刚获得日本金融监管机构颁发的加密兑换许可证;在韩国,有消息称该国最大的娱乐公司SM娱乐即将推出自己的代币……

  Besides the name brand companies that are exploring crypto solutions, there are hundreds of innovative startups and founders looking to radically disrupt their respective industries with blockchain technology. This list contains ten innovative blockchain startups based in Asia worth watching, including exchanges, fintech startups, and more.


  1. Level01


  Level01 is the world’s first broker less derivatives exchange in collaboration with Thomson Reuters. Through using blockchain technology, the platform eliminates middlemen while providing a decentralized trading experience. Users can trade derivatives and options in forex, cryptocurrencies, commodities, stocks and indices, all from the Level01 platform and app.

  Level01 does this by using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for transparent and automated trade settlement on the blockchain, with their unique Artificial Intelligence (AI) analytics called Fairsense that provides fair value pricing dynamically to counterparties in a trade, based on current and retrospective market data from Thomson Reuters. The platform and app are currently undergoing stringent beta testing by 50 experienced traders.


  2. Galaxy Pool


  Galaxy Pool, also known as GPO, is a brand-new asset issuance style on blockchain that utilizes intelligent contracts for initial digital asset issuance. In general, GPO assets can be best described as mining machines used to explore various kinds of digital assets that can obtain value-added benefits of GPO through the repurchase and destruction of pond profits.

  Galaxy Pool,又称GPO,是区块链上一种全新的资产发行方式,它利用智能合约进行初始数字资产发行。一般而言,GPO资产可以被认为是挖掘各种数字资产的采矿机器,这些数字资产可以通过回购和破坏池利润来获得GPO的增值收益。

  With this brand-new asset issuance style on blockchain, more humanistic investment opportunities with free withdrawal rights can be provided to investors.


  3. Biki

Under CTO David Su, CAT’s main focus is building a high-performance DAPP development platform and community encouraging and autonomous system based on software and hardware combined GCloud Everest computing platform. This is the world's first public blockchain (distributed cloud) using CUDA and blockchain technology.

  Columbu(CAT)是一个基于社区的全球开源区块链项目,自2017年开始运作。在CTO David Su的领导下,CAT的主要重点是基于软件和硬件结合GCloud Everest计算平台,建立一个高性能DAPP开发平台和社区激励及自治系统,这是全球第一个使用CUDA和区块链技术的公共区块链(分布式云)。

  The project will allow for a worldwide distributed and free economic collaborative network of intelligent economies. This will happen through a community incentive mechanism and autonomous system to build in real-time. The project has an ambitious roadmap that will include growing its global developer community and other projects within their ecosystem.


  9. KBC


  Registered in Singapore, KBC is the powering token of a global financial infrastructure and range of products focused around gold. These products include an innovative Voice-over-Blockchain smartphone called IMpulse K1, a crypto payment merchant processor called K-Merchant, and a cryptocurrency exchange and trading platform. Together these products and entities combine to form the Gold Imperium, the company’s financial ecosystem.

  KBC注册于新加坡,是全球金融基础设施和一系列以黄金为核心产品的有力象征。这些产品包括一款名为IMpulse K1的创新语音区块链智能手机、一款名为K-Merchant的加密支付商户处理器,以及一个加密货币交换和交易平台。这些产品和实体结合在一起形成了黄金帝国,即公司的金融生态系统。

  The company has attracted heavy interest from users who have seen the benefits of having both gold and cryptocurrency exposure, as well as the ease of use of being able to use each day to day through tokens such as KBC. As both markets expand, keep an eye on KBC.




  TEXCENT is a Singaporean blockchain and fintech startup focused on fully-integrated solutions for remittance, payments, and microfinancing. Using blockchain technology, the company wants to provide seamless and convenient digital financial services solutions to Asia and the world. TEXCENT is currently focusing on the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand as these markets will grow exponentially in the next 5 years.


  Their current products include PAYCENT, an app and hybrid wallet, as well as TEXCENT, a remittance solution with zero fees. TEXCENT has already acquired a remittance license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and is in the process of getting similar licenses for UK, Malaysia and Hong Kong in the coming months. The company is also a member of the Singapore Fintech Association.



  These Startups Show Blockchain's Potential In Various Industries.


  Decentralized networks solve problems across many industries. Thus, it’s no surprise that blockchain companies will reach $10 billion in revenue in the next couple of years, according to ABI Research.

  分散式网络解决了许多行业的问题。因此,根据ABI Research的显示数据,区块链公司未来几年的营收将达到100亿美元也就不足为奇了。

  Distributed ledger technologies (DLT) refer to decentralized, trustless systems, and according to cryptocurrency guru Nick Szabo in “Money, Blockchains and Social Scalability”:

  分布式账本技术(DLT)指分散的、无信任的系统,根据加密货币专家Nick Szabo在《货币、区块链和社交扩展性》一书中所说:

  “Innovations in social scalability involve institutional and technological improvements that move a function from mind to paper or mind to machine, lowering cognitive costs while increasing the value of information flowing between minds, reducing vulnerability, and/or searching for and discovering new and mutually beneficial participants.”


  The technology will see a 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 76% between 2018-2023, according to International Data Corp.

  根据国际数据公司(International Data Corp.)的数据,2018年至2023年,区块链技术的5年复合年增长率(CAGR)将达到76%。

  Value Transfer价值转移

  Blockchain can be a secure medium for value transfer (like the Bitcoin network), where nodes agree on the status of a public ledger. Altcoins, which are smaller crypto projects, appeal to smaller niches. For example, the Free Coin project encourages unbanked people to use crypto, and to switch from fiat to digital funds. Their tech enables peer-to-peer payments that feature low fees.

  区块链可以是一种安全的价值转移媒介(就像比特币网络),其中节点就公共分类账的状态达成一致。Altcoins是较小的加密项目,吸引较小的利基市场。例如,Free Coin项目鼓励没有银行账户的人使用密码,并从法定基金转为数字基金。他们的技术支持低费用的点对点支付。

  A sophisticated project is Global Digital Assets (GDA), a blockchain-focused merchant banking services firm. It helps blockchain ventures to raise funds or gain liquidity through venture capital, public markets, or loans. The firm also helps companies to structure utility and security token offerings (STOs).


  Securing Data数据保护

  DLT has applications outside of cryptocurrencies, from secure voting to supply chain tracking. According to World Economic Forum, wide-scale adoption will lead to 5% increase in global GDP and 15% increase in trade volume.


  Blockchains are excellent at tracking and preserving data, and the capability can be combined with physical hardware like RFID tags to improve logistics, shipping, and warehousing operations.


  Another application is e-voting. Due to concerns with interference, technologists view blockchain-powered e-voting as more secure and private. An example is ZCoin, which launched a large-scale political election in Thailand in late 2018.


  There are also networks that make it easier to comply with regulatory frameworks.


  “The implications of KYC (know your customer) and AML (anti-money laundering) extend beyond cryptocurrencies,” says Mark Homeier, CEO of Maxonrow. “Blockchains have a unique capability to make KYC and AML identification better while preserving user privacy to a specific extent, and concurrently handing users control over their own identification data.”

  Maxonrow的首席执行官Mark Homeier表示:“KYC(了解客户)和AML(反洗钱)的含义不仅限于加密货币”,“区块链有一种独特的能力,可以让KYC和AML识别度更高,同时在一定程度上保护用户隐私,让用户控制自己的识别数据。”

  Maxonrow is a high-throughput transaction blockchain with mandatory KYC verification.


  DLT can protect data. Projects like Veridoc aim to disrupt document management, and applications include the verification of passports, land titles, and education certificates. The company recently partnered with DocuSign to bring the innovation to small businesses.


  Contentos uses blockchain to transform how videos are monetized and shared. The project uses a peer-to-peer model for distributing revenue, and uses a decentralized approach for distributing traffic. The firm’s tech authenticates copyrights, as well as securely records users’ credit score, which measures contributions on the platform.


  Going Mainstream成为主流

  Blockchain is applicable in social media and retail. Forty-one percent (41%) of executives expect their organization to implement blockchain within a year, according to a 2018 survey by Deloitte.


  Dyson Network provides an enterprise solution to accelerate transactions for all decentralized systems which would enable real-time payment and promote all blockchain performance. Payment experience will become fast, easy and friendly just like using a credit card, PayPal, Square and other payment methods.

  Dyson Network提供了一种企业解决方案,可加速所有分散系统的交易,从而实现实时支付并提升所有区块链性能。支付体验将变得快速、简单、友好,就像使用信用卡、PayPal、Square等支付方式一样。

  BitWallet, which operates out of Houston Texas, reduces the barrier to accessing crypto.


  BitWallet simplifies the buying, selling, and storing of cryptocurrencies with an intuitive portfolio app. Fiat gateways with multiple cryptocurrencies are hard to come by with fragmented regulatory statuses around the world.


  Merchant adoption is crucial for mainstream adoption.


  Vexanium is a next-gen blockchain that supports smart contracts, decentralized applications (dapps), and retail penetration. Users don’t incur a transaction fee when making payments. To gain mass adoption, developers built the platform to accommodate 2,000 transactions per second (TPS).


  Reddcoin, a crypto and blockchain project, verifies IDs and enables tipping on social media channels. Supporters, therefore, look at Reddcoin as a social commerce tool.


  DxChain caters to enterprises and consumers who favor privacy and data security. The decentralized big-data network protects sensitive info, and gives users the power to control their data. DxChain’s data storage also protects privacy.


  Blockchain is an innovation whose functions include frictionless transactions, tamper-proof recordkeeping, and data privacy. Organizations can tap into its capabilities to improve their business practices.
