WHO IS DIGIX EXACTLY?

Digix was one of the first companies that brought gold, onto the blockchain. Having been incepted in December 2014, Singaporean based Digix has been using blockchain´s immutability capabilities as a means to prove ownership of the asset. So unlike other cryptocurrencies, the value of DGX, is justifiable and is just as volatile as the value of gold. Read more at our articles section!

Harpreet Singh Maan
CEO & Co-Founder of Blocklime

Harpreet envisions a future where blockchain not only solves real life issues but truly established the trust between the technology and people. With this vision, he founded Blocklime, a Malaysian company cater to distributed ledger technology (DLT) and blockchain development.

He envisions that the potential and impact of DLT technologies will be great for the betterment of society and acts as an enabler to pave access to the adoption of both blockchain and DLT technologies.
