The curation of a DeSci Hub in Singapore and possibly South East Asia (SEA) with VitaDAO.
The idea of a DAO has always been universal. Although, the DeSci movement is heavily concentrated in Europe. Being an avid longevity advocate and a Singaporean, I want to build a similar driven and passionate community in the SEA region. SEA boasts a dense population (700 million) of young people with a surprisingly large web3 adoption rate.
However, technology is just a tool and I want to cultivate a community toward real-life impact. Longevity research has always been promising in Singapore especially with the recent opening of the National University Health System’s (NUHS) Centre for Healthy Longevity. With the government’s co-sign and more attention being brought to solve ageing, this space’s bloom is inevitable. However, DeSci has not gained traction here, yet. Biopharma is still neither transparent, collaborative nor open source. I want to change that and empower researchers/longevity advocates in Singapore and SEA with the success of VitaDAO.
I will be leading this project. Although, I’m always open to Vitalians contributing and lending a helping hand if their passions align with my mission.
Community is the lifeblood of any project. I want to build a community of quality rather than quantity similar to VitaDAO. I want to help spread the word of DeSci and VitaDAO to Singapore in the hopes of creating more impact in web3, let alone DeSci.
I will be bootstrapping this project for now. However, I am always open to receiving help from the VitaDAO community be it monetarily or not.
Being a Singaporean, ageing is a problem within our population. I think it’s a problem that can be solved. My country thinks so too. However, I think traditional methods might get us stuck in the same barely evolved position we’re caught in today. I have always admired VitaDAO’s vision/mission let alone what you’ve been able to curate thus far. I will continue to be part of VitaDAO as I believe longevity science should be democratised in my home too.
