Changelog Speaker Spotlight - Shaun Djie, COO & Co-founder of Digix

Kristian Kho -

 

CoinGecko will be hosting sixteen exciting crypto projects at the upcoming Changelog stage during Invest Asia 2019 happening on 11-12 September 2019. The Changelog stage offers projects the opportunity to share important updates and development roadmap with conference attendees.


This edition's Changelog Speaker Spotlight brings you Shaun Djie, COO and Co-founder of Digix. He is also the founder of the Ethereum Singapore meetup group - one of the largest in the world with over 8,000 members.  He is currently a Technical Committee Board Member at the IT Standards Committee (organised by IMDA and Enterprise Singapore for Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies) and is also a Regional Partner at Kenetic Capital - an institutional platform for blockchain advisory, technology and investment. Shaun also co-authored Cryptocurrency Wizards (2018) covering the testimonials of movers and shakers in the Asian cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Digix is a Singapore-based blockchain company who’s gold-backed tokens, DGX, are the bridge between the physical world and the crypto world, enabling mass access to a traditional store of wealth.

1) What is the main thing you will be highlighting at Digix?

I’ll be sharing more on what Digix’s progress has been on Digix Gold’s use case - particularly into the borrow/lending DeFi space, payments and store of value. Also, DigixDAO’s has been progressing well into the 2nd Quarter of its launch. I will be able to highlight some good metrics on top of that.

2) What’s the biggest challenge Digix faced this year and how was it resolved?

Launching an on-chain DAO Governance has been challenging, from a community and tech perspective. We are still constantly refining what works best for the community.

3) How would you describe Digix in one line?

Digix aims to be the future value of choice, where tokenized assets like Gold could be used to spend and hold your . 

4) Describe your vision for the future of Digix.

Digix aims to democratize access to a tested and proven asset class amidst the upcoming economic uncertain future.

5) What do you think is the biggest hindrance/roadblock to mainstream adoption of crypto in general?

The need for the responsibility of storage, trust and use case.

6) What mascot would you use for your project? If you already have one, what inspired you to pick said mascot?

This is a thought that never really crossed my mind - the project is bigger than any individual or icon on its own. Digix is built for the people and will always remain for the community and masses at large. I really can’t think of any that might come close to that.
