The world has witnessed a dramatic rise in blockchain adoption over the recent years. From cryptocurrencies and enterprise blockchains to non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized finance (DeFi) - this technology is set to change the way things are done. Are you ready for it?

While understanding blockchain can seem daunting, 'Opening the Archipelago: the Story of Blockchain in the Philippines' aims to demystify this. Told in three parts, the book is an in-depth exploration into blockchain’s role in the country: from breaking down foundational concepts to showcasing Filipino use cases, and even delving into the regulatory landscape and the need for progressive regulation.

To date, 'Opening the Archipelago' is the first book that focuses on blockchain projects in the Philippines - both those founded by Filipinos and those which Filipinos helped flourish.

In time, blockchain technology will transform the way we live, transact and experience this world and the metaverse. Let this book be a guide as you glimpse into that future.

The easiest, most straightforward way to understand blockchain in the Philippines

Most blockchain-focused content focuses on foreign markets, but "Opening the Archipelago" stands out as a rare exception—and it really is exceptional! The book is a great explainer of what blockchain is, its impact, and the emerging blockchain projects proudly helmed by Filipinos.
