Media Statement: Celebrus chosen as the Top 10 Blockchain Tech Consultancies in APAC!
Malaysian Firm Named Top 10 Best Blockchain Consultancy In Asia Pacific for 2019
Celebrus Advisory, a bespoke and compliance-first consulting firm for blockchain technology has been awarded the Top 10 Best Blockchain Technology Consulting / Service Companies in Asia Pacific for 2019.
This recognition is bestowed by APAC CIO Outlook, a Silicon Valley based trade journal for CIOs, CTOs and other senior level IT buyers across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. It identifies and profiles emerging companies providing cutting edge solutions to enterprises in APAC, with deep background research on hundreds of vendors for every technology and industry vertical.
Celebrus, a company registered and based in Malaysia, joins an elite group of past winners which include prominent global leaders in the blockchain industry such as Huobi based in Singapore and Vechain based in China. It is the only Malaysian on the list this year that also features leading names like Quoine (Japan) and TRON (China / USA).
In accepting the award, Celebrus co-founder Edmund Yong said: “This is a huge validation for a startup like ours playing on the global field. We serve a need for proper risk management and due diligence in this new and growing industry.”
He added: “This is a Malaysian success story. We share this honor with the local blockchain industry as we stand on their shoulders! We do not have to be a blockchain backyard to other countries, but should strive to put Malaysian talents on the map and export our services to the rest of the world.”
According to APAC CIO Outlook, the winning considerations for Celebrus are its expertise on the regulatory and technical aspects of blockchain and its application in the crypto-driven economy, and its ability to leverage on a “cottage-industry business model” to serve the global market.
Celebrus is a member of ACCESS Blockchain Association (Malaysia), the main industry body that promotes and advances the adoption of blockchain technology in Malaysia and the ASEAN region.
ACCESS Blockchain Association’s President Rene Bernard said: “International recognition like this shows that there is growing economic potential for this industry, and that many Malaysian technopreneurs in this space are a force to be reckoned with – like with Celebrus today. At ACCESS, we nurture home grown talents and startups to ‘empower the nation through blockchain technology’.”
Blockchain is an Industry 4.0 technology and a key infrastructural pillar of the Digital Economy that Malaysia is pushing towards. Its regulators Bank Negara and Securities Commission have recently developed a regulatory framework for digital assets.
