Enterprise Singapore, Infocomm Media Development Authority, and the National Research Foundation Singapore, have jointly launched the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Program (SBIP), investing SGD $12 million ($8.9 million) to build infrastructure for the country's blockchain industry.
The program is also supported by the central bank, who will engage more than 70 multinational corporations, large local enterprises, and information and communications technology (ICT) firms.
Singapore is already one of the major hubs for blockchain in the region, seeing many new players entering the space.
As of today ,there are currently a total of 234 entities in Singapore's blockchain ecosystem, where 91 new entities were launched this year alone.
“As the first major industry-driven blockchain research program, our intent is to proliferate blockchain adoption to a much broader set of industries, beyond just finance,” said IMDA chief executive Lew Chuen Hong. “These efforts allow Singapore to build a strong blockchain ecosystem and establish our role as a Trust Hub.”
