Where to now?
The 482.solutions team is trying to cover more and more serious scales each time, discovering new horizons and reaching new heights.
The company’s founders, Roman Kravchenko (Chief Executive Officer), Ivan Balashov (Chief Financial Officer) and Alex Kryvoruchko (Chief Operating Officer) came back from the global Roadshow in Asia, the results of which we want to share with you.
Since 2018, Memorandum of Understanding was signed between 482.solutions and ProximaX, based on which the companies have agreed to cooperate closely in the development of new technology use cases, research and development projects on the ProximaX Platform. These prospects are opened by using innovative technical knowledge of 482.solutions, especially in the field of IoT and robotics.
482.solutions is proud of such a partnership and as part of the Roadshow in Asia, the company’s founders visited the main ProximaX office in Kuala Lumpur. At the meeting with the ProximaX founder and co-founder, Mr. Lon Wong and Mr. Alvin Reyes, representatives of 482.solutions presented a certificate confirming the close cooperation of our projects and the common desire to develop innovative technological solutions.
Spring began with an important meeting for 482.solutions. Roman Kravchenko, Ivan Balashov and Alex Kryvoruchko were honored to have an appointment with The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Malaysia — Olexander Nechytaylo.
It is worth noting that the embassy performs an extremely important mission to assist the Ukrainians, who are in Malaysia. First of all, it is legal support and protection of the rights and freedoms of Ukrainians, assistance in adapting to the conditions of the cultural and social diversity of the Asian region, and, of course, consultations of Ukrainian specialists and entrepreneurs on business issues.
482.solutions discussed with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Malaysia the organization of educational events for both business and the Malaysian government sides, research projects involving experts from the Ukrainian technological community, and 482.solutions’ participation in the Malaysia Investment Development Authority (MIDA) as a research company. We thank Olexander Nechytaylo for the fruitful conversation and are confident that together we will be able to achieve all our goals.
482.solutions’ founders also did not miss the opportunity to get to know the city, which is distinguished by an innovative science park. Cyberjaya can rightfully be considered a real technological hub and Silicon Valley of Malaysia. As a key part of the Multimedia Super Corridor in Malaysia, Cyberjaya coexists and develops with Putrajaya, the new seat of the Malaysian government.
Cyberjaya attracts hundreds of technology projects from around the world, thus turning from a center established to attract research and development initiatives to one of the main places for the global common services and outsourcing sector, taking third place after India and China.
Another achievement of Roman, Ivan, and Alex can be called a meeting with MAGiC representatives.
The Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Center was opened in 2014 under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance and today, MAGiC promotes and supports the growth of entrepreneurship in Malaysia in order to stimulate the sustainable development of ecosystems through creativity and innovations. The missions of the organization are also to create value and new economic incentives for Malaysia, collaborating with other government agencies, corporate players and community stakeholders.
At the meeting, 482.solutions discussed open opportunities for cooperation with the innovation ecosystem of Malaysia in the framework of participation in the acceleration program GAP (Global Accelerator Program) and access to the ASEAN markets.
It is worth noting that the ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) market is a serious enough springboard for introducing advanced blockchain solutions since this political, economic and cultural regional intergovernmental organization includes 10 countries located in South-East Asia.
482.solutions, with the assistance of the Embassy of Ukraine in Malaysia, held a meeting with MAMPU representatives on the issue of cooperation in the development and research of innovative solutions based on blockchain technology.
MAMPU (The Malaysian Administrative Modernization and Management Planning Unit) is one of the leading government institutions in Malaysia, which is responsible for modernizing and reforming the public sector. Based on the MAMPU missions, for 482.solutions it was important to make a presentation of the Ukrainian IT sector potential and discuss cases of using the distributed registry technology (blockchain) in the public sector.
Representatives of 482.solutions talked about digital identification, supply chain management, and also about the economy of robots possibilities.
During the conversation, a prototype of the ProximaX Identity solution developed jointly with ProximaX, was presented.

During a busy Road Show in Asia, Leonid Khatskevych (Head of IoT department at 482.solutions) joined Roman, Alex, and Ivan to speak at the IoT Asia conference.

The 482.solutions team also thanks to the representative of the Embassy of Ukraine for the consultation meeting. The keynote of the conversation was the rules of doing business in Singapore. 482.solutions’ representatives managed to find out how technological projects are developing in the country, as well as how Ukrainian start-ups are entering the Asian market.
