    As Santiago R.

    However, the main point was still the TOKEN2049 conference, which took place on September 28-29, held at Marina Bay Sands Exhibition Center, one of Singapore’s new icons, showing the scale and investment of the event. 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 welcome and can benefit from the event’s insights.
