TokenNews Philippines, launched in this August, was featured by local online cryptocurrency media BitPinas.
A Hong Kong Based ICO Advisory firm, TokenNews HK Ltd., recently launched a new branch in the country, Token News Philippines. This branch aims to spread knowledge and understanding about cryptocurrency among Filipinos not only focusing on the investment side but also how this technology will bring many benefits to the country and its people.
Announced during a press conference on August 27, 2018 at Okada Manila Hotel, the Token News executives launched its Philippine branch, Token News Philippines. It will be headquartered at Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig City, Metro Manila.
Token News Hong Kong chose the Philippines as its branch in Southeast Asia for a lot of reasons and Mr. Yuki Takarabe, the consultant and head of TokenNews Philippines cited a few. First, he shared that according to the United Nations data in 2015, 1/3 of the Philippine population or around 106 million are millennials. This is the generation that drives and uses emerging technologies like cryptocurrency and blockchain.
The second reason is because the country is an English speaking nation. This makes it easier to establish businesses compared to other countries. Mr. Takarabe also cited his plans on putting up his own business process outsourcing (BPO) office here.
