SINGAPORE — TOKEN2049, Asia’s premier web3 and crypto conference, has announced its first batch of title sponsors and headline speakers as it returns to Singapore.
TOKEN2049 will be at Marina Bay Sands from Sep. 13 to 14, 2023, ahead of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2023 race weekend.
TOKEN2049 is set to welcome over 10,000 attendees from over 3,500 companies, making it the largest event this year. With the conference taking place in Singapore once more, this speaks to the enduring importance of Asia as a driver of growth and vibrancy of innovation in the global digital asset ecosystem.
Following the resounding success of its record-breaking Singapore 2022 event, TOKEN2049 will feature an expansive program of over 300 side events and networking opportunities from Sep. 11 to 17 throughout the city-state.
Celebrating the event’s triumphant return to Singapore, Alex Fiskum, co-founder of TOKEN2049, said:
“We’ve seen unprecedented traction and interest amid a record number of ticket registrations to date and confirmed speakers, sponsors, and partners in our line-up. We expect TOKEN2049 Singapore to be the largest crypto event of the year. This unforgettable experience will surpass our previous editions in size, activity, and overall excitement.
Gathering global industry leaders, top decision-makers, and innovators, new additions to the 2023 agenda include hacker houses, technical workshops, and non-fungible token (NFT) galleries. The 2023 edition of the conference has already surpassed last year’s attendance, sponsorship, and speaker milestones, with numbers rapidly rising ahead of September.
This year’s agenda spans the ever-evolving regulatory landscape, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), Web3 gaming, NFTs and the metaverse, DeFi, scalability, interoperability, and many more. The impressive speaker line-up includes Balaji Srinivasan, founder, investor, and author of The Network State; Joe Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys; Stani Kulechov, founder and CEO of Aave; Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital; Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon; and Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, along with a range of leading industry figureheads.
Haider Rafique, chief marketing officer at OKX, said:
“This is the second year for us to combine TOKEN2049 and Singapore Grand Prix, where we’ll unveil the new McLaren OKX custom livery. The event is a great starter to the weekend and brings crypto and F1 fans together in a big way. This year has been about helping people see the future of web3 through our latest “rewrite the system” campaign. Singapore will be a prime venue for us to amplify our efforts.”
The diversity of this year’s title sponsors for TOKEN2049 Singapore speaks to the inherent vigor of the industry.
