Blockchain startup ConsenSys opens new office in Hong Kong

Fri, 22 Feb 2019, 04:09 am UTC

Ethereum venture capital studio ConsenSys has announced the opening of its new office in Hong Kong and the appointment of Charles d’Haussy as Director for Strategic Initiatives and market lead for Hong Kong.

According to the official release, ConsenSys Hong Kong will pursue a growth plan which includes the hiring of blockchain solutions architects and software developers.

The company noted that Hong Kong has a vibrant financial services sector and a government supportive of new technology. As part of its efforts to position itself as the top financial hub in APAC, the territory introduced a HK$500 million fund in 2018 to further its financial sector, boosting development in fintech, blockchain and digital assets.

ConsenSys has already partnered with leading Hong Kong-based financial services organizations last year such as Nippon Wealth Bank to explore the application of ConsenSys Decentralized Apps (Dapps) to develop new products and services, and Lane Crawford to test an Ethereum blockchain solution to bring transparency to transactions.

d’Haussy joins ConsenSys from InvestHK where he was the Head of FinTech and oversaw the government agency’s development of Hong Kong as an attractive FinTech hub for international businesses and investors. In his new role with ConsenSys, he will build market strategy and operations.

“We are very pleased to have Charles join us and help us drive blockchain and Ethereum growth in Hong Kong,” said Joseph Lubin, founder of ConsenSys and co-creator of Ethereum. “Hong Kong stands out for its continued legacy as a financial and trading hub strategically located in the heart of Asia and as an important conduit to mainland China. With his considerable experience and familiarity of the local FinTech, enterprise and government sectors, Charles is a strong leader to helm our next wave of growth across Asia Pacific.”
