TOKEN SUMMIT IV

16 MAY 2019, NEW YORK CITY

FOURTH CONFERENCE ON THE EMERGING TOKEN-BASED ECONOMY

Token Summit IV will be the 4th event in the Token Summit series, the first conference that explored in-depth the Token-Based Economy. In New York City for the 3rd time, we will continue to discuss the economics, development, regulation and best practices around blockchain-based tokens, protocols, and crypto-assets. Specifically, some of the key topics of this conference will include how to successfully grow decentralized open source protocols, extracting insights from blockchain data, decentralized governance, valuation models, and token functionality models.
If you are an entrepreneur, investor, finance professional, lawyer, fund manager, regulator, or business executive, you need to pay 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. Token Summit is the real insiders summit, and is brought to you by William Mougayar and Nick Tomaino.
