Commenting on the program, one of the cohort participants, Javier Tan, CEO of Creo Engine says, “The TSBA program has tremendously helped our project. We’ve known and worked with many great partners internally and externally since the start of this program. We truly hope that the TSBA program continues to champion local blockchain projects and support start-ups in the long run.”
Participants and startups were provided with the necessary tools on fundraising, team culture, blockchain development, listing advisory and tokenomics to develop the skills required to make a mark within the blockchain industry. Participants onboarded into this program include VC Gamers, nanobyte, Avarik Saga, Creo Engine, Eizper Chain, Duckie Land, Play Fix, Play it Forward DAO, Mythic Protocol, getKupon, Avarta and Survein.

“The startups that were selected are a reflection of the flourishing blockchain ecosystem in Indonesia, and this is just the beginning. Two years ago, the term blockchain seemed foreign, but today it is a digital powerhouse that comes in the form of NFTs, decentralised finance, and even GameFi. At Tokocrypto, we are proud to be disrupting this industry,” says Pang Xue Kai, Chief Executive Officer, Tokocrypto.
Since the launch of the program, Tokocrypto has connected the participants with global mentors such as Tamar Menteshashvili from Solana Labs and Nicole Zhang for Binance Labs.
