Celebrus Advisory, a consulting firm for blockchain technology has been named one of 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, by conducting in-depth 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  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.”

“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, some winning considerations for Celebrus include its expertise on the regulatory and technical aspects of blockchain and its application in the crypto-driven economy, and its ability to leverage on the cottage-industry business model (a small-scale, decentralized manufacturing business often operated out of a home rather than a purpose-built facility).

Celebrus is a member of ACCESS Blockchain Association (Malaysia), an advocacy group that promotes and advances the adoption of blockchain technology in Malaysia and the ASEAN region.
