新加坡的区块链生态系统在过去一年里扩大了50%以上,拥有200多家公司

2020-7-7 17:12

 

根据最新的公告,新加坡的区块链生态系统在过去一年里扩大了50%以上,拥有200多家公司。


一年前,我们曾报道新加坡区块链加速器部落推出了OpenNodes,以将新加坡的区块链生态系统整合到一个保护伞下。加速器得到了政府的支持,并得到了信息通讯媒体发展局(IMDA)的支持。区块链映射是OpenNodes的工作。


在上面的图表中,只显示了企业区块链景观的一部分。大图链接如下。如果你对天秤座感到好奇,新加坡主权基金淡马锡(Temasek)今年早些时候就成为了天秤座的一员。摩根大通去年参与了跨境多币种支付Ubin项目。该名单还包括几家区块链Contour贸易融资机构的成员,他们参与了区块链试点项目,包括法国巴黎银行(BNP Paribas)、汇丰银行(HSBC)和渣打银行(Standard Chartered)。


由Tribe提供动力的OpenNodes在“Unitize”上公布了新加坡区块链2020年景观地图。“Unitize”是旧金山区块链Week和Blockshow组织的区块链在线协办会议。这张地图由新加坡政府机构“信息通讯媒体发展局”(“IMDA”)支持。来自世界各地的区块链峰会,如韩国区块链周、巴黎区块链周、特拉维夫区块链周,齐聚一堂共同举办这一虚拟活动,这在业内尚属首次。


自2019年以来,新加坡的区块链生态系统实现了大幅增长。新加坡的区块链景观2020地图新增了91个实体,使其总数达到234个实体。这些实体一直积极参与各种区块链相关的倡议。其中包括万事达、VISA、阿里巴巴支持的蚂蚁金服、腾讯支持的微众银行、WireX、Phillip Securities、SAP、Contour和facebook支持的Libra等。


新加坡的区块链景观2020地图包括了一个新的产业部门,分散化的金融,这是2020年一个值得注意的领域,在这一领域,新公司不断涌现,既有企业也将其服务扩展到各个领域。由于许多全球认可的项目,这方面的活动有所增加。淡马锡最近与Facebook支持的天秤座协会(Libra Association)合作,成为其第一个亚洲会员,还剥离了几家专注于区块链应用的子公司,包括数字身份和贸易融资。德勤(Deloitte)最近的《2019年和2020年区块链全球调查》(Global区块链Survey 2019 and 2020)也显示,越来越多的机构在全球范围内招聘区块链专家。


“现在是我们根据COVID-19评估企业和技术的新现实的时候了。随着更多的公司出现在区块链应用层,服务于区块链协议层的新公司的数量在过去的一年中逐渐减少。基于区块链的金融在未来一年看起来很有希望,因为银行和其他现有金融机构将在covid -19后发挥更重要的作用,”由Tribe提供动力的OpenNodes管理合伙人Ng Yi Ming说。“IMDA对新加坡及其他地区区块链社区的不懈努力和支持,促进了这个生态系统的发展。”


“我们很高兴看到更多本地和国际区块链公司加入新加坡区块链生态系统,并在贸易融资、智慧城市、解决方案和咨询等多个领域进行创新。”尤其令人鼓舞的是,新加坡支持的区块链平台DLT Ledgers等本地公司最近已进军中东和北非。新加坡政府机构IMDA科技与基础设施集团助理首席执行官Philip Heah表示:“IMDA期待更多的合作,将新加坡打造成亚洲区块链中心。”


“区块链不仅可以改变现有的业务,还具有开拓新业务机会的潜力。”它可以促进更高的透明度、开放的商业模式、信息的可移植性和更高的运营效率,”淡马锡副首席执行官Chia Song Hwee表示。“在这个领域有很多发展让我们兴奋,我们期待有更多机会为新加坡在区块链领域的领先做出贡献。”


区块链解决方案在各种现场项目中的使用越来越多,尤其适用于各种COVID-19场景和新常态,并不断发展。


“在IBM,我们加大了区块链项目的力度,以提供食品供应链的可见性,并与当地企业和价值链上的科技初创企业紧密合作,以实现共同的目标。”透明和可追溯性将减少浪费,确保食品安全和质量,通过增进各方之间的信任减少潜在纠纷,并提高获得信贷的机会,”IBM区块链能力中心亚太区负责人Alan Lim表示。

 

According to the latest announcement, Singapore’s Blockchain Ecosystem has expanded by more than 50% over the last year, to more than 200 companies.

A year ago, we reported that Singapore blockchain accelerator Tribe was launching OpenNodes to collate Singapore’s blockchain ecosystem under one umbrella. The accelerator is supported by the government and has backing from the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). The blockchain map is the work of OpenNodes. 

In the above graphic only part of the enterprise blockchain landscape is shown. The larger image is linked below. If you’re wondering about Libra, Singapore’s sovereign fund Temasek became a Libra member earlier this year. JP Morgan participated in Project Ubin last year for cross border multi currency payments. And the list includes several members of trade finance blockchain Contour that have participated in blockchain pilots including BNP ParibasHSBC and Standard Chartered.

Note: we are experimenting with some articles, publishing the announcement, sometimes prefixed with a brief introduction.

OpenNodes, powered by Tribe, unveiled the Singapore Blockchain Landscape Map 2020 at ‘Unitize’, a collaborative online blockchain conference organized by San Francisco Blockchain Week and Blockshow. The map is supported by Infocomm Media Development Authority (“IMDA”), a Singapore government agency. A first for the industry, blockchain summits from around the globe such as Korea Blockchain Week, Paris Blockchain Week, and Tel Aviv Blockchain Week, have come together to co-host this virtual event.

Since 2019, Singapore’s blockchain ecosystem has seen substantial growth. There are 91 new additions to Singapore’s Blockchain Landscape 2020 map, making it a total of 234 entities. These entities have been active in various blockchain related initiatives. Some of these include Mastercard, VISA, Alibaba-backed Ant Financial, Tencent-backed WeBank, WireX, Phillip Securities, SAP, Contour, Facebook-backed Libra amongst others.

Singapore’s Blockchain Landscape 2020 map includes a new industry segment, Decentralised Finance, a notable area for 2020, that has seen new companies emerge, as well as incumbents extending their services into various areas. There has been an increased activity due to numerous globally recognised projects. Temasek has recently partnered Facebook backed, Libra Association as its first Asian member, and have also spun off several subsidiaries focusing on blockchain applications including digital identity and trade finance. Recent studies by Deloitte Global Blockchain Survey 2019 and 2020 have also shown that more organisations are recruiting blockchain experts globally.

“It is time for us to assess the new reality for businesses and technology in light of COVID-19. It appears that the number of new companies emerging to serve the blockchain protocol layer has tapered off in the past year, with more companies arising in the blockchain application layer. The year ahead looks promising for blockchain-based finance, as banks and other incumbent financial institutions are set to play a much more important role post-COVID-19,” says Ng Yi Ming, Managing Partner, OpenNodes, powered by Tribe. “IMDA’s tireless efforts and support for the blockchain community in Singapore and beyond, have fostered this ecosystem growth.”

“We are excited to see more local and international blockchain companies joining Singapore’s blockchain ecosystem and innovating across various sectors such as trade finance, smart cities and solutions & consulting. It is especially encouraging to see local companies such as DLT Ledgers, a Singapore-backed blockchain platform recently expand into MENA (Middle East and North Africa). IMDA looks forward to more collaborative efforts in anchoring Singapore as a blockchain hub in Asia,” says Philip Heah, Assistant Chief Executive, Technology & Infrastructure Group, IMDA, a Singapore government agency. 

“Blockchain can not only transform existing businesses but also has the potential of opening up new business opportunities. It can facilitate greater transparency, open business models, portability of information and greater operational efficiency,” says Chia Song Hwee, Deputy CEO, Temasek. “There are many developments in the space that excite us, and we look forward to more opportunities to contribute to Singapore’s pioneering efforts to lead in the blockchain space.”

The use of blockchain solutions can be increasingly seen in various live projects and particularly applicable amidst the various COVID-19 scenarios and the new normal, moving forward.

“At IBM we have ramped up our blockchain initiatives to provide visibility of the food supply chain and working closely with local corporates and tech startups across the value chain to meet shared goals. Transparency and traceability will reduce wastage, ensure food safety and quality, reduce potential disputes by improving trust between parties, and boost chances for securing credit,” says Alan Lim, Head of Blockchain Centre of Competency, Asia Pacific, IBM.
