Blockchain Co-working Space Opened in Philippines to Promote Blockchain Technology


The Philippines’ first blockchain co-working space has opened in Makati City to bring fintech companies in Southeast Asia closer through collaborative events such as seminars, workshops, networking, and training sessions.

Aptly called the Blockchain Space, the project was co-founded by Steven Suhadi, chairman of the Indonesian Blockchain Association, and Albert Goh, CEO of UnionSPACE. The venture is a partnership between Manila-based workspace provider Acceler8 by UnionSPACE and Indonesian fintech company SCI.

Peter Ing, head of Blockchain Space Philippines, commented:

“We aim to spearhead initiatives in growing the industry by hosting modules from beginners to advanced levels. We will equip members of this community with tools to grow regionally in Southeast Asia through access to capital and network, as well as legal and technical advisory services.”

Prior to the launch of their facility in the Philippines, the initiative has launched a coworking space in West Jakarta and is looking forward to launch more locations in the region.

The initiative aims to bring fintech companies across Southeast Asia together through a series of collaborative events involving networking, seminars, workshops, and training sessions. It also provides a coworking space for companies in the industry.

As a workspace chain, Acceler8 by UnionSPACE offers business solutions such as office spaces, virtual offices, meeting rooms, and event spaces. In addition to spaces, it also gives members access to partners, investors, and venture capital firms across Southeast Asia.

Founded in 2014, SCI helps users reduce costs of cross-border money transfer with its service
