SlateAsia Episode 2
In the latest episode of the SlateAsia podcast, co-host Jason Fang discussed his recent move to Taiwan and why he believes it is a more crypto-friendly environment than Singapore and Hong Kong.
Jason, who recently moved his venture capital firm to Taiwan, explained that the move was motivated by the more flexible regulatory environment in Taiwan. Unlike Singapore and Hong Kong, which have strict regulatory frameworks for the crypto industry, Taiwan is still in the early stages of developing its framework. This, according to Jason, allows for more flexibility and the ability to explore and experiment with new ideas in the blockchain space.
Jason also discussed the current state of the crypto industry in Asia, highlighting the rise of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the potential for blockchain technology to disrupt various industries. He also emphasized the importance of being in an environment that is open to new ideas and allows for the sharing of those ideas with others in the industry.
In addition to the regulatory environment, Jason cited the strong support for the blockchain industry in Taiwan as another factor in his decision to move there. The Taiwanese government has been actively promoting the development of the industry and has introduced measures to support blockchain startups and entrepreneurs.
Overall, Jason believes that Taiwan provides a unique platform for the crypto industry’s growth in Asia and is an attractive destination for blockchain firms looking to expand in the region.
