The Asian crypto industry and community has proved time and time again that they are a formidable force in the race towards greater adoption and development of blockchain based technologies. This is in part due to the fact that Asian countries such as Japan and Hong Kong are pioneering the way in technological advancements.
The continent has all in all been quick to accept cryptos and has established itself not only as a thriving hub for the development of blockchain but also for it’s advancement. And now, the much awaited Asia Crypto Week 2019 which is to be held in Hong Kong from the 11th of March to the 17th is a testament to that commitment.
So, what is Asia Crypto Week?
According to the event’s official website, it is a ” week of various independently organised educational and developer-focused events that aim to nurture mass adoption by providing first-hand information about the industry.”
Not only will the event feature prominent blockchain advocates and industry specialists in the cryptoverse who will share their stories and experiences hoping to inspire and educate, but will also host a huge number of avid blockchain enthusiasts who will come to gain greater insights into how to navigate their way in a rapidly expanding industry and global community.
The 7 day event features various sub events such as educational workshops, community meetups and even film screening of crypto based features such as Cryptopia. However, the much awaited Token 2049 will be raking in the most audience as it brings together almost a 100 blockchain speakers such as the founder and CEO of Tron, Justin Sun, author of the Bitcoin Standard, Saifedean Ammousand Litecoin legend, Charlie Lee and many many more over a period of two days.
And why is it important?
The event is important not only because it hopes to bring together around a large number of crypto enthusiasts and experts under one rood but the goal is to educate and encourage the importance of massive crypto adoption by demystifying the industry. Not to mention the opportunity to increase your crypto network.
The other amazing advantage of such a platform and event is the media attention with names like Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, the International Business Times, Bloomberg and others. We’re excited to see more and more platforms such as this in the future with media organizations like these on ground to understand and hopefully appreciate the importance of greater awareness in blockchain based technologies.
