Saison Capital, a Singapore-based venture capital firm, is thrilled to announce the inaugural launch of ONCHAIN 2024, Asia’s first real-world asset (RWA) conference, happening on the 26 April 2024, 9 am – 5 pm (ICT), in SO/ Bangkok Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand. Saison Capital is an early-stage venture capital fund (pre-seed to Series B) with a focus on emerging markets. The firm backs ambitious founders at the pre-seed or seed stage and focuses on Web3, fintech and commerce. It is a subsidiary of Saison International, a global investment company part of Japan’s Credit Saison. The company will be co-hosting the event with real-world assets (RWA) leaders in Asia, including the world’s first crypto insurance company – Evertas, Indonesia’s first distributed ledger technology provider, D3 Labs, and Southeast Asia’s leading tokenized private credit company, HELIX.
ONCHAIN 2024 is a first-of-its-kind conference in Asia, bringing together like-minded organisations and partners to tap into the huge opportunity presented by the intersection of traditional finance and Web3. In the latest BCG report, the tokenization of global illiquid assets is estimated to be a $16 trillion business opportunity by 2030. Benefits of tokenizing RWAs include the ability for direct exchange without the need for intermediaries and fractional investing which enables a broader range of investors to tap into these assets.
The trend of tokenizing real-world assets (RWAs) has gained momentum in 2023 despite depressed markets across traditional finance and crypto. Almost every major financial institution across Southeast Asia is experimenting with integrating existing traditional finance (TradFi) with blockchain and asset tokenization. As an active early-stage investor in fintech and RWAs, we have a front-row seat to Asia’s pole position in RWAs adoption. The launch of ONCHAIN 2024 aims to bring more partners into the conversation to shape the financial ecosystem of the future,” said Qin En Looi, Partner at Saison Capital.
The event features an impressive lineup of speakers and attendees from TradFi institutions including Citibank, Standard Chartered, SCBx, Woori Bank, and SBI Holdings, as well as real-world asset (RWA) leaders including Helicap Group, Evertas, HELIX, D3 Labs, OpenEden and Rakkar Digital.
ONCHAIN 2024 co-hosts are leading the adoption of RWAs across Asia and beyond. Indonesia’s first distributed ledger technology provider D3 Labs is spearheading cross-border financial transactions, under the reputable BCA (Bank Central Asia) SYNRGY Accelerator programme, bringing the benefits of the blockchain to reduce transaction costs. Evertas is now offering the largest single cryptocurrency insurance policy, backed by Lloyd’s of London, which protects crypto-investors from large risks including thefts and hacks of digital assets. HELIX offers emerging markets private credit opportunities to stablecoin holders, opening access to its $200M private credit fund to on-chain investors.

“At ONCHAIN 2024, we are not only breaking down the barriers between TradFi and Web3 but also facilitating the exchange of knowledge and innovations that can further drive the future of finance. Our primary objective is to facilitate collaboration and provide a platform for the exploration and implementation of practical applications involving RWA. Leaders in traditional finance and fintech can discover opportunities to leverage the blockchain, whereas RWA leaders can share lessons from early successes on asset tokenization,” added Looi.
