RSK Openings in Singapore and Shanghai will enable RIF and RSK to better serve key tech markets.

Gibraltar — April 1 ,  2019 — RIF Labs, the purpose-driven organization led by the RSK Labs founding team and other top executives, has announced an expansion into Asia with the opening of two new offices in Singapore and Shanghai. This will enable RIF Labs to continue development of its partner and developer communities in the Asia-Pacific — a key market for RIF Labs given Asia’s reputation for blockchain adoption, financial innovation, and strong developer talent.

Diego Gutierriez Zaldivar, CEO of RIF Labs, said: “This is an extremely exciting time for the RIF Labs team. Asia has always been a key market for us, as the immense innovation in the region will be integral to realizing blockchain’s full potential and creating the Internet of Value. Our hope is that these two new offices will allow us to forge new relationships with key Asia partners and help solidify the long term success and development of RIF Labs and the RSK blockchain.”

Yuan Yuan, co-founder of leading decentralized exchange Dex.top and who has received a master’s degree in finance at Hong Kong University and a master’s degree in management at Beijing University, will support the China office as an advisor for growth and development in East Asia.

Yuan Yuan, said: “I have been a firm investor of RSK since 2015. This team has strong technology background with huge potential for financial inclusion innovation. The most promising teams and projects are those persistently pursuing dreams of changing the world. Global expansion in bear market is the proof of confidence and strength.”

The Singapore office will be led by Henry Sraigman, the current head of business development at RIF Labs. With more than 11 years of experience in the IT world and more than 5 years running business development for disruptive startups, he jumped into the Bitcoin and blockchain space, inspired by the idea of putting technology at the service of social transformation. Henry will focus specifically on forging new business partnerships to foster adoption of RIF Labs technologies in South East Asia.

Henry Sraigman, said: “I joined the RSK team in 2016 when I first heard of the company’s vision and totally fell for it from the beginning. Building smart contracts over the Bitcoin network was the cornerstone to enable more inclusive blockchain-based societies. I believe Asia plays a key role as it’s the world’s most dynamic region and today accounts for 40 percent of the global economy. The South East Asia region specifically presents a strong case for financial inclusion — similar to Latin America — and blockchain technology mass adoption.”
