Sharing insights on digital asset industry & regulations
SINGAPORE and HONG KONG, June 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On June 17, 2022, Antalpha Technologies Ltd, a digital asset platform built for institutions in traditional finance, digital asset and related mining industries, spoke at a forum held by UBS Private Wealth for its clients. Topics discussed include recent market events, investor sentiment from family offices and institutions, how best to capture opportunities and manage risk in the digital asset space, and finding the right balance between regulation and growth.
The panel was moderated by Binnie Wong, Head of New Economy Strategy Business Development of UBS Asia Pacific. Participants included Angelina Kwan, COO of Antalpha Group, Max Liao, Managing Director of Business Development of Antalpha, Sebastian Borget, Co-founder and COO of Sandbox, Henry Chong, CEO of Fusang Corp and Josh Du, Treasury Management at Animoca.
In response to a common question on how one should start investing in digital assets, Angelina Kwan emphasized the importance of doing research, reaching out to experts, and identifying reputable exchanges and companies, with a proper focus on security and safety. Josh Du also shared the importance of understanding the volatility of cryptocurrency investments such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, which could be highly volatile in nature. Also, investors should treat the investment as a "buy and hold" to allow for long-term growth, regardless of short-term fluctuations.
On a final point, Henry Chong invited the attendees to consider the technological aspects of blockchain and digital assets for incorporation into traditional business models – whether it is through the Metaverse, utility tokens, or tokenizing elements of a balance sheet – and bring together the stakeholders of a business, including suppliers, employees and customers.
Max Liao of Antalpha also commented, "Regardless of whether it is a bull or a bear market, disruptive technology still holds its value. The technology behind blockchain and digital assets, metaverse and cryptocurrency, has already begun to change the world and is here to stay. As we move into the coming weeks and months, a similar challenge remains for all businesses and investors. How do we, with open minds, look past the noise during this period of consolidation to identify the opportunities today that will be the engines of growth and profit tomorrow? And how do we, with care and caution, identify the right opportunities to be a part of and invest in?"
Since inception in 2021, Antalpha has been diligently working with influential players in the traditional finance industry for further integration with the digital asset industry. This event is the first of many such outreach and collaboration opportunities in the coming months.
