Ever since the last quarter of 2018 things have been hard for the entire industry. A lack of market trust is exasperated by a general sense of uncertainty. Yet the last new year has seen a decided change in mood. Most commentators have explained that the proverbial “excess fat” has melted away with the last downturn.
That might actually be the case as most players in the cryptosphere slowly seem to be getting more active. Case in point is the multinational ConsenSys, which is focusing on offering more decentralized applications.
For the past couple of years the company, founded by the co-founder of Ethereum Joseph Lubin, has been rather consistent with its high growth. This growth has prompted an ecosystem for developers to flourish and now the blockchain firm is looking to add more people by adding an office in Hong Kong.
Charles d’Haussy has already been lined up to take over the reins as the Director for Strategic Initiatives and market lead. He will, undoubtedly, be using his vast knowledge to cater to client and partner needs.
Lubin, talking up the firms foray into the Asian markets, pointed out that they were already a major presence in Singapore but were now more focused on developing their Asian and Oceanic leads. To this end, they had a strong focus on their new recruits.
Commenting on the appointment of Charles d’Haussy he says,
“We are very pleased to have Charles join us and help us drive blockchain and Ethereum growth in Hong Kong. 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 the Asia Pacific.”
The head honcho was also well aware of the importance of the fragrant harbor,
” 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.” And he intends to maximize the advantage that offers.
What has interested most of the industry is the focus on new hires. It is understood that d’Haussy will be looking to hire architects and software developers for blockchain solutions. In a recent conversation, he spoke about the direction and expectations of the company.
”I’m excited to drive ConsenSys’ expansion into Hong Kong. ConsenSys’ expertise in blockchain consulting and technical capabilities in enterprise solutions caters very well to the rising demand for emerging and financial technology in Hong Kong and across the wider Asia Pacific region,”
ConsenSys has been making steady progress the world over. With over a thousand employees interspread over major financial hubs such as New York, London and Singapore already, the blockchain outfit has been also had a recent collaboration with other blockchain enterprises in Hong Kong.
A move that will undoubtedly help them to explore the full potential of applications and develop new services.
The impressive growth of ConsenSys since its inception just half a decade ago brings to focus the promise that can be realized by building a sound ecosystem. A focus on developers who can realize decentralized applications and use the strong infrastructure of the Ethereum blockchain. It now remains to be seen if this is the road to recovery that everyone is waiting for or just a false dawn.
