The publication explained:

“The CVA will consist of a 25-shop housing development inside the cyberpark developed in compliance with the strict security requirements for licensed overseas virtual exchanges (OVEs) located in CEZA. It will include co-working and living spaces, business incubation and acceleration hubs as well as back offices of OVEs and service providers to the global crypto space.”

Raul L Lambino, CEO and CEZA administrator said that this great infrastructure will serve to allure very many foreign investors and world FinTech players to Philippines and CEZA. This will enable the nation to turn into one of the giant destinations for works related to Blockchain and FinTech.
