Final Thoughts

TOKEN2049 Singapore was one of the highlights of the year. It cemented Asia’s position as a key crypto player and showed how mature and advanced the industry is in the region. Furthermore, the event brought together both the Asian as well as the global crypto communities.

180+ side events, 7,000+ attendees, and F1 Gran Prix make it surely a conference worth visiting & not to miss!

We are glad to have had the chance to both attend, as well as be one of the official sponsors of the conference.
