TOKEN2049, positioned as Asia’s premier crypto conference, is set to host the largest attendance for an in-person crypto-related conference in the region here in Singapore when it takes place from 28 to 29 September at Marina Bay Sands.
2022 also marks the conference's debut in Singapore, and the highly anticipated event is joined by a roster of sponsors numbering 200 firms. New additions to its line-up of title sponsors include next-generation crypto spot and derivatives trading exchange OKX; leading hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger; one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges Kucoin; Hong Kong-based digital asset exchange AAX; the world’s largest cryptocurrency derivatives copy trade platform Bitget; and homegrown Singaporean crypto exchange Coinhako, which secured its major payment institution license earlier this year.
Leading South Korean game company WEMADE, best known as the creator of leading MMORPG series Legend of Mir which sees over 120 million players worldwide, has also signed on as Title Sponsor.
Asia Crypto Week is a week of various independently organised side events around TOKEN2049 Singapore, running from 26 September to 2 October 2022. The week concludes with an exceptional closing party at CE LA VIE and the F1 Singapore Grand Prix.
As the flagship event of Asia Crypto Week, the conference is expected to draw 3,000 attendees from across the world. This year’s impressive line-up includes Stani Kulechov, Founder and CEO of AAVE, the leading open-source and non-custodial liquidity protocol; Haseeb Kureshi, Managing Partner of Dragonfly Capital; and Eli Ben-Sasson, Co-Founder and President of Starkware and co-inventor of zkSTARK, the privacy-preserving cryptographic proof.
Panels and keynotes at the event are set to address a broad agenda — from the evolving regulatory landscape and institutional investment trends to the rise of the metaverse, Web3, and what this will ultimately mean for the industry as mainstream awareness intensifies.
The Singapore event is set to be the largest in TOKEN2049’s history amid the token economy’s huge potential to transform industries and communities around the world. As a testament to growing interest among broader mainstream audiences, McLaren Racing Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo, the new brand ambassador for world-leading crypto trading app and web3 platform OKX, will also be speaking at the conference ahead of Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix 2022 race, sharing his views on digital assets and the evolving nature of fan engagement.
Additional speakers at this year’s conference include Justin Sun, Founder of Tron, the open-source, Proof-of-Stake blockchain platform and Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon, the decentralised Ethereum scaling platform.
As part of Asia Crypto Week, attendees can expect to attend a full line-up of side events, including Pantera Blockchain Summit Asia (photo above), Milken Institute Asia Summit, and Algorand AVM Singapore, with many more to be announced in the coming weeks.
The ninth annual Milken Institute Asia Summit will gather influential individuals with the financial resources to advance positive change. The curated discussions and purpose-driven meetings will translate ideas into scalable solutions - the kind that can transform institutions and communities.
