TOKEN SUMMIT 2017

24-25 MAY 2017, NEW YORK CITY

INAUGURAL CONFERENCE ON THE EMERGING TOKEN-BASED ECONOMY

Token Summit is the first event of its kind, exploring the economics, regulation and practices around blockchain-based tokens, protocols, and crypto-assets. If you are an entrepreneur, investor, finance professional, lawyer, fund manager, regulator, or business executive, you should start paying attention to the emerging token-based economy, one that might rival the web in terms of potential innovation, new business models and entrepreneurial ideas that are yet to be deployed. Join us at this exclusive, intellectually-driven gathering, grouping the best minds in this space.
