“Singapore is a key strategic location for LongHash for three reasons 1) friendly regulatory environment and generous government support, such as Enterprise Singapore’s backing of LongHash; 2) vibrant South East Asia blockchain community with Singapore at the center of it; 3) vast amount of potential use cases for the use of distributed technology. We expect to see Singapore playing a pivotal role in shaping global blockchain technology landscape,” said Emma Cui, CEO of LongHash Singapore.

LongHash’s mission with their base in Singapore is to accelerate the development and understanding of blockchain technology.

Aside from partnering with Enterprise Singapore, LongHash also has global partners that include blockchain venture capital firm Fenbushi as well as Chinese conglomerate Wanxiang Group.
