Surrounded by the looming towers of traditional banking institutions of Singapore’s financial district and the backdrop of the iconic Marina Bay Sands, our next-generation stablecoin made its debut in the Asian market and on the global crypto stage.

Taking place at the historical 1919 Waterboat House, Anchor’s event entertained guests with a stimulating panel discussion on the topic of “Crypto Beyond Trading,” alongside complimentary drinks and canapes, as well as a photobooth adorned with nautical-themed props. 

Anchor’s visionary Founder and CEO, Daniel Popa; CPO, Tijana Damjanović Gertner; and CCO, Olya Moskalenko, presented a keynote on Anchor’s most recent milestone developments, our stablecoin’s tokenomics and non-flationary financial index (the MMU), as well as Anchor’s mission and vision for driving global economic stability. 

Our entire team present included also COO, Cristian Bronescu; CMO, Miloš Milosavljević; and Vice President of Government Relations, Andrew Sarega, who had traveled from across Europe and North America were delighted to engage with the crypto and fintech community in Asia, as well as Invest: Asia conference attendees from around the world. 

The panel featured some of the industry’s top influencers and thought leaders including YouTube Influencer and CEO of The Moon Channel, Carl Eric Martin; YouTube Influencer and Co-founder of MMCrypto, Christopher Jaszczynski; Head of Brand Marketing and Communications of Liquid, Katherine Ng; Founder of B21, Nitin Agarwal; and our very own Chief Product Officer of Anchor, Tijana Damjanović Gertner.

The Crypto Beyond Trading panel discussed ideas about mass adoption, what needs to happen to bridge the gap between where we currently are and where we need to be as an industry, the current and future crypto landscape, and more. All the panelists shared a similar sentiment regarding Facebook’s Libra, which is that while it is helping to garner attention and drive adoption for the cryptocurrency industry, it is not a true, decentralized cryptocurrency in and of itself. 

Michael Nye, host of Evolvement Podcast and mediator of the panel expressed, "#AnchoredInAsia was the perfect way to close out the week of networking and events in Singapore alongside the Invest: Asia conference. Our rockstar panel discussed everything from crypto payment solutions to the need for a stable store of value, and I look forward to sharing the conversation with our listeners soon on the Evolvement Podcast."

#AnchoredInAsia constituted Anchor's official launch event to celebrate ANCT’s first listing on the Liquid exchange, ANCT’s upcoming listing on IDEX at the end of September, and the release of the Anchor Wallet best testing program.

Anchor Founder and CEO Daniel Popa said, "Singapore is a growing hub for crypto innovation, and we see great potential and demand in the Asian market for a stablecoin, such as Anchor that can bring long-term price stability and short-term hedge against volatility to the region. It was an honor to celebrate our official launch alongside some of the most ardent crypto enthusiasts, investors, entrepreneurs, and innovators in the space."

The networking event gathered more than 120+ attendees, including crypto traders, exchange representatives, investors, influencers, and notable crypto media. All attendees that were present are eligible for an airdrop of 50 Anchor Tokens (ANCT), upon passing KYC, that can be used for buying, trading, and selling ANCT on the Liquid exchange.

Stay tuned to Michael Nye's Evolvement podcast to listen to the panel discussion and hear what global crypto influencers and experts had to say when it comes to Crypto Beyond Trading.

PRESERVE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOLDINGS


Anchor is a two-token, algorithmic stablecoin pegged to the sustainable and predictable growth trend of the global economy.  Anchor offers token users long-term price stability, preservation of purchasing power, and protection against inflation, while hedging market volatility.

Stablecoins backed by fiat and real world assets are susceptible to the same market fluctuations, depreciation, and loss of purchasing power as their traditional counterparts to which they are pegged. The global economy, on the other hand, has a sustainable and predictable growth trend with global GDP steadily increasing over time. Providing an alternative to fiat-pegged stablecoins, Anchor aims to remain stable regardless of any fiat currency’s strength, market fluctuations, or economic recessions.

Our vision is to create a stable platform for any crypto or traditional currency to peg their value to, and to be a cornerstone for price stability as a global currency and financial standard.
