Singapore was dubbed ‘extremely hot and frothy’ in the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) boom-period from 2017 to 2018.

Because all information on companies registered in Singapore is public, a chance encounter led me to check out which companies in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry were registered here.

All analysis of data are based on personal opinions and may contain errors of classification.

These may show interesting metrics as we seek to encourage more frontier technology ecosystems to thrive in Singapore.

I’m hopeful that Singapore will become a vibrant hub for blockchain and cryptocurrency technology innovation.
