TOKEN 2049 Singapore – What to expect
About TOKEN 2049 Singapore
TOKEN 2049 Singapore will occur on the 28th and 29th of September at the iconic Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. It is annually organized both in London and Singapore, addressing in proximity the European and Asian crypto markets.
According to Yahoo Finance, Raphael Strauch, Founder of TOKEN 2049, justified the location chosen: “Within the past few months, the crypto ecosystem has seen a whirlwind of change and growth, and it’s only befitting that we’re gathering in Singapore — one of the region’s leading innovation hubs — to celebrate how far we’ve come.”.
As Aleksander Leonard Larsen from Axie Infinity previously said, “TOKEN2049 has set the bar for in-person events.”, so it isn’t a shocker to say that the expectations are quite high. This is a large-scale conference composed of:
- 3,000+ attendees;
- 150+ speakers;
- 150+ exhibitors;
- 100+ journalists.

- Global crypto developments;
- Web3 ecosystem;
- Industry’s opportunities.
Besides panel conversations and fireside talks, TOKEN 2049 Singapore will also have specific networking events, meetups, and workshops to give attendees a more hands-on learning experience. According to the event’s official website, there will be “unparalleled networking opportunities”.

One of the conference’s goals is to attract as many industry stakeholders as possible. They can either be small entrepreneurs, investors, industry opinion leaders, or established developers. Anyone is welcomed and can benefit from the event’s insights.
TOKEN 2049 is the flagship event of Asia Crypto Week taking place from the 26th of September to the 2nd of October. During this week, other events will occur, including the F1 Singapore Grand Prix and more networking drinks and parties, such as the Ce La Vie closing party.
As Santiago R. Santos said, “TOKEN2049 brings together crypto-native and institutional minds to produce high-quality and engaging discussions.” and that’s exactly what you might expect from this year’s Singapore event.
We will now dive into the specific topics and conversations taking place on each day of the event. Most panel talks will revolve around:
