Team Updates

With a brand new exchange beta ready to show off to the world, the EMX team was out in full force at Singapore Blockchain Week, the premier crypto event of the year. We attended many events and talks, met with media outlets and early supporters, and established some valuable new business connections.

On Thursday, the EMX team hosted an intimate, VIP-only brunch at The Bird restaurant inside Marina Bay Sands. Interest in the highly exclusive event was overwhelming; over 115 guests were in attendance to try out our private beta and network over Southern food and champagne. Key representatives from major funds such as Signum Capital and Kosmos Capital were present. All in all, EMX and Enecuum’s Crazy Rich Brunch was incredibly successful. For a full recap, head to our Medium.
