Autumn in New York (Q4, the 4th business quarter) is a beehive of activity! There is the general excitement of back to school and back to work, combined with so many global forums and conferences … Midtown Manhattan traffic at a standstill, so it’s actually faster to walk from event to venue, than it is taking a taxi, bus or rideshare.
It’s an annual, en masse ‘back to business’ – when world leaders descend for #UNGA – the United Nations General Assembly – and celebrated works-in-progress, like the renovation (modernization) of the Museum of Modern Art, open to new vision!
It’s a time of year when politics, art, music and fashion collide in competing events throughout the city… When traditional finance resumes on Wall Street, and ‘disruptive’ new digital currency platforms attract younger, perhaps more adventurous players.
On September 27th and 28th, the 2nd annual World Blockchain Forum returned to New York to join the excitement.
I was able to speak briefly with Bella Fang, chairman of New York WBF Group and founder of WBFex, the World Blockchain Future Exchange:
WBFex was established on Wall Street in 2018 and registered in Singapore in January 2019. The executive team is comprised of financial technology veterans from New York, Singapore and China… committed to building a long-term trading platform that is user-oriented, safe, convenient, fair and open.“
Miss Fang went on to discuss the safety of this particular cryptocurrency exchange, stating “WBFex has been very disciplined.
We always take ‘compliance’ as the core, and embrace regulation.“
