Over the past few years, global financial technology investment in Asia has exponentially grown from US$880 million in 2014 to an average of US$8.5 billion from 2016-2017, with plenty of attention going to blockchain technology. In fact, Indonesia’s public and private sectors have begun looking at blockchain to help to build trust and facilitate greater productivity and efficiency out of Southeast Asia’s largest economy.
