BSV blockchain in the Philippines

BSV is the best distributed-data ledger for enterprise-grade applications and services with its massive scaling, micropayments, greater data capacity, and reliably low fees.

The BSV blockchain is the only public blockchain capable of scaling to meet the demands of enterprise-scale applications and was designed to function as an extension of the Internet that allows for peer-to-peer payments and complex data transfers without intermediaries.

The BSV Blockchain Association sees the Philippines as a global blockchain and digital assets hub, with the Southeast Asian country recently ranking behind Vietnam in this year’s Chainalysis Global Cryptocurrency Adoption Index.

In October, the country announced that it plans to establish the world’s first decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) for a Blockchain Association in Asia, with plans to headquarter it in the Philippines. This forms part of a broader goal to establish the country as the world’s foremost Blockchain haven jurisdiction.
