So, what's in store for 2022? As the world buzzes with the hype of Web3 and the Metaverse that is driven by the continuous steep uptick in digital adoption, is SEA ready to rumble or are they running ahead of the curve? Find out more this September!
Covid-19 has accelerated society’s transition into a cashless system. Despite parts of the population remaining unbanked and underbanked, the relevance and prominence of digital banking and fintech services is now irrefutably and eventually unavoidable. With the adoption of even newer forms of currencies and digital transactions like Bitcoin and Ethereum, we ask, what comes next in this evolution and how do we level the playing field for all?
Leveraging on the fast and furious trends, Q-Commerce has emerged as an offshoot of of E-Commerce, delivering a new dimension of quick service to cater to on-demand needs. With the changing consumer dynamics, speed is a key defining factor in a time-starved society. How are these E-Commerce giants staying nimble while keeping up with the accelerating tempo?
In 2020, Southeast Asia saw record-breaking capital and investments flood the region, triggering a wave of skyrocketing valuations and aggressive fundraising rounds. After two years, there is now talk of a "winter season". The huge market correction in the US stock market, coupled with a bearish outlook by global Investors and venture capitalists has led to less funding, reduced exits and delayed IPOs for startups in the region. With such a major economic downturn insight, startups will have to cut costs and extend their runways where possible. How long will winter last and what would happen next, remains to be seen.
What seems dystopian and were merely theoretical concepts just a decade or two ago, is now a reality. Even as we race to keep up, the line separating the digital and physical worlds converge evermore—with new ideas, new concepts, and new realities taking shape each day. Here, we attempt to demystify and unravel the threads that make up Web3, to share why this new emerging space, is one we should all sit up and take notice of.
While Digital Banking, Fintech, and E-Commerce continue to play vital roles in forming tech solutions and form the broader crux of the systems we know today, the rise of Neo-Tech like Cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and Web3 have significantly set their foot in every sector. This development heralds the next generation of regional startups within the Climate-tech, Food-tech, Edu-tech and verticals of similar vein, to blaze a path in the global tech battlefield.
The future is now. With major environmental concerns like global warming and loss of biodiversity growing dire, how do we balance sustainability-centric initiatives with the advancement of technology, the natural with the digital? The role tech plays in the creation of a more sustainable future for all, has to evolve in tangent with the pressing environmental concerns we now face. What remains is, what is the best way forward?
