Events of great financial magnitude have also occurred in Asia’s blockchain technology scenario.

While crypto tech is constantly under the stimulus of such growth, the financing powerhouses are still reluctant to invest in blockchain ventures. Tangem has managed to raise this amount from SBI Crypto Investments in Tokyo, Japan to further its aim of making blockchain technology a common everyday-phenomenon, according to a report by PRNewswire.[The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views and/or the official policy of the website. ]
