"Amid calls for greater regulatory oversight around crypto, it is apparent that now is the time for open dialogue between companies, developers, investors, and governments, to chart the way forward. As with all bleeding-edge developments, intra-industry collaboration is critical to advancing the entire blockchain and crypto ecosystem, ensuring it evolves in a sustainable and responsible manner without stymieing innovation," said Crypto Expo Asia Director Michael Xuan.
The speakers and panelists at Crypto Expo Asia will address key trends shaping the global web3 and crypto industry, including artificial intelligence, central bank digital currencies, web3 regulation, blockchain gaming, and what this will ultimately mean for an industry that has undergone scrutiny and seismic change over the last few months.
"With more businesses trying to navigate the metaverse, we are pleased to announce the inaugural Web3 Expo Asia Summit, a sub-event under the auspices of Crypto Expo Asia. This first summit will introduce pilot sessions for metaverse- and NFT-specific panels and discussions," Xuan said.
"The industry’s recent trials have shown just how important it is for the community to engage in productive discourse, and conferences such as Crypto Expo Asia provide a platform for discussion. Driving conversations and facilitating solutions to the industry’s most pressing issues is part of the ABA’s raison d'être, and we look forward to the ideas and solutions that will emerge from the conference this year." said ABA Co-Chairman Shawn Tham.
Ahead of what is shaping up to be the definitive return for one of Asia’s most exciting crypto industry events, Crypto Expo Asia has already seen major crypto players pledge their support for the event, including ABX, BEOSIN, BITmarkets, Coinstore, and PurpleFi.
