The signup page is now LIVE ! Signup at the link as space is really limited ! Looking forward in seeing you all there

Changes in Penang STEEM Bootcamp Schedule

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we have to move our schedule of our Penang Bootcamp Sharing to either 1st week or 2nd week of March. This is due to space availability and also to coincide with TheBlockSignal ‘s event plans who is our partners and organizers there

Even though the dates has moved, we are still very positive about the event there and are excited about trying to get a larger crowd.

Other updates in Malaysia

We are now finalizing more workshops and planning in Kota Kinabalu to grow more content creators in the community in Borneo. We are moving our plans forward in Borneo to start running workshops to drive the growth of STEEM adoption here and also to work out a sustainability model for new users.

When will this happen ?

Our workshops will begin by May 2019 and we are now currently planning for space and also facilities. It surely is going to be a really exciting year for Steem in Malaysia !

Won’t be able to reveal much as a lot of planning is still in the works however rest assure that it will happen.

A impromptu meetup with steemians

It was a very last minute decision to hop on a flight and head back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah as there was something which I had to do

And as always I took the opportunity to meetup with all steemians who was around town and had the time. Being all part of STEEMXP community and also TEAMMALAYSIA , we had a breif discussion as to the current markets and also direction of growing STEEM adoption in Malaysia.

its the Chinese New Year celebrations here too

Looking at 2019, it is going to be a lot of speculations and fud in the crypto space. I do have confidence in the blockchain technology and its surely going to strive into something greater then what it is known for today.

We will however always push for growth in this region with a few more events being line up throughout the year, we have already begun planning workshops and more talks around the STEEM ecosystem. With more and more amazing DAPPS being developed by independent developers, STEEM will surely be one of the strongest blockchain & community around.

Don’t forget our next event is just 2 weeks away in Penang and once everyone is back to work after the Chinese New Year holidays we can push and plan for more confirmed events.

Would love for you to support our campaign on fundition for running all these offline events and promoting adoption of STEEM

The Settlements Co-Working Space in Penang

It was only just last month where we held our first Penang event in 2019 and I would like to give a shoutout to the venue that provided the venue which was a really nice co-working space called The Settlements.

The Settlements Penang is located in a MSC status building. If you do not know what MSC is , in a nutshell it stands for ( Multimedia Super Corridor a Malaysian Govt initiative to provide special perks to tech companies ) However as part of the guidelines, having a company which is MSC Status, you would require to reside your office in a MSC zone / building.

The office environment setup by The Settlements Penang is suitable for young entrepreneurs who just started their spanking new company however does not have the necessary funds to rent an entire office space yet but would like to have the perks of an office.

The Settlements Penang

You have the option in taking a room or if you are always out and about, you can just take the hot desking where you are free to come in and out as you like and if you require to have meetings, there are full facilities meeting rooms at your disposal as well.

The location of The Settlements is within driving distance to almost everywhere within the Penang area so its convenient and is satisfactory for most aspiring tech companies.

We had our first Steem Sharing Session here and I do love the colors in the presentation room that was provided. Thanks to The Settlements in allowing us to use this place and we would be having our next session here as well … unless something else comes up.
