Over the past weeks, the APAC region saw a deluge of Web3 deals, conferences and side events with a focus on VCs and founders to be matched with the right partners. Conference season is coming to an end, and middleware and investment DAO founders have had their thirsts quenched after raising liquidity to keep afloat.

The needle in the region seems to be moving back to the bear market narrative and transitioning from "RAISE FUNDs" to "BUIDL MODE". While most hungry crypto networkers have been served the best meals of APAC conference season, Master chefs @ETHKL1 are stirring up the pot for one last finale to end APAC Web3 appetite on a sweet note.

A homage to Ethereum and the global blockchain industry, all eyes are aimed at ETHKL as they organise Malaysia's first Ethereum event, Ethereum Kuala Lumpur 2023. This event marks the first Ethereum conference and hackathon supported by the Ethereum Foundation in the country and a step forward for the country's tech and Web3 to move forward towards global competitiveness.

The event as stated on their website, focuses on Ethereum smart contracts and related technologies, aiming to foster understanding and adoption among the budding developer communities.
