ABCD aims to be backed by every academic community around the world. At present, it has already garnered the support of top-tier academic facilities such as Hong Kong University and Peking University. ABCD firmly believes its influence and footprint can make waves globally and positively change the landscape of blockchain education.
1. Regulation and Compliance
ABCD is committed to clarify the legal misunderstandings between different stakeholders in the blockchain community, successively improving companies’ ability to resolve compliance issues and addressing new compliance and regulatory requirements.
2. Blockchain Economy
Blockchain is emerging as a transformational force to the world’s financial systems, and ABCD’s professionals are here to gather industry insights and updates to determine the areas that stand to benefit the most when powered by this technology.
The true value of cryptocurrency lies at the heart of its underlying technology. ABCD aims to collaborate with tech companies, labs and tertiary institutions to streamline and encourage adoption of blockchain technology.
With all the use cases the revolutionary blockchain technology offers, ABCD aims to consolidate the academic and various industries’ efforts to construct a dynamic platform for all participants such as vendors, developers and users in real-world applications.
With a vision to set a new education standard across the Asia-Pacific region and promote blockchain development for the next generations of talent, ABCD hopes to be an unprecedented impetus to ensure that the talent supply pool can keep up with the exponential growth in blockchain technological demands. In addition, ABCD aims to create the best practices for industries to adopt and pave the way to a brighter blockchain future.
ICOMain.io is proud to be a key player in the formation of ABCD, and we are looking forward to help shape the blockchain landscape together with the rest of the experienced committee. With joint effort, we can put forward the development of the crypto ecosystem on a sustainable level.
