The GSX Group, which contains the Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX) and Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), sponsored the True Global Ventures Disruption in Finance event. The one-day conference took place at Credit Suisse, Hong Kong.
Disruption in Finance
All TGV events adhere to strict ‘Chatham House Rules’, designed as an open forum for meaningful discussion, focused on real-use cases and trends in the emerging blockchain industry. The TGV team bring thought leaders from across the world to share their views, and latest innovations. Speakers at the event included, Mathias Helleu, Chairman at 8securities, Samson Lee, Executive Chairman at Coinstreet Alliance, and Greg Kidd, Founding Member / Founding Investor in Ripple, Twitter, Coinbase, and Square. It was a close quarters event, with 135 business leaders, made up of investors, founders, innovative start-ups and representatives from various firms, in attendance.
A wide range of topics were discussed during the event, including, the role of traditional venture capital and how it is being disrupted by blockchain, the future of investing with decentralised blockchain funds, trading, and the landscape of private markets.
GSX Group Participation
Benjamin Soh, Executive Director of Gibraltar Stock Exchange Group, was invited to participate in a panel discussion with Steve Bennet and Lim Qing Ru, Partners at True Global Ventures 4 Plus, along with Yat Siu, Chairman of Animoca Brands, CEO of Outblaze and Partner at True Global Ventures 4 Plus.
Benjamin also took part in a ‘Fireside Chat’ Moderated by Dusan Stojanovic, Partner at True Global Ventures. During their talk, Benjamin spoke of how he became involved with the Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX), and how the company has evolved since then. Dusan Stojanovic asked about the future prospects and horizons of the GSX Group, where Benjamin highlighted the fintech ecosystem being built by the Group as a comprehensive solution for clients, including digital securities through the innovative STACS Protocol.
Ben stated:“This is the year to develop and deliver our vision. We practice what we preach, as a stock exchange, we are the first to go live with a Digital Asset Exchange, known as the GBX-DAX, and we hope to be the first to launch our own blockchain based securities trading ecosystem, known as STACS”.
When the GBX White Paper was released in 2017, it clearly stated the group’s trust and belief in DLT technology and how it will be adopted by the financial ecosystem. The GSX Group would like to thank TGV for organising the event and look forward to more thought-provoking discussions at more events in the near future.
