Investors also applauded the event.

Local ICO organizer Dr. BK Kim, CEO of 'ICO PLATFORM PTE. LTD.' in Singapore said, "I have visited blockchain related meetups in Singapore more than 100 times to attract investment for ICO, but this is the first time for me to join blockchain meetup of this scale.

I hope we can see more of South  Korean blockchain projects enter the global market through meetups like this one ('Global Blockchain Jump-Start Meetup in Singapore').
