LATOKEN has emerged as a key hub in the blockchain ecosystem by hosting regular international Blockchain Economic Forums (BEF) in addition to holding meetups in Asian crypto capitals: Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore, followed by a series of similar events on the U.S. West Coast.
The status of the Blockchain Economic Forum as the international blockchain community's flagship event allows LATOKEN to promote its platform and LA token, form strategic partnerships with major industry players, as well as to stay on the cutting edge of technology and attract the best talent.
The inaugural BEF event was held in New York October 31 - November 1, 2017, gathering 50+ top-notch speakers and 500+ brilliant entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and regulators.
Forbes referred to BEF as the greatest place to meet "500 entrepreneurs, VCs, bankers, brilliant coders, [and] a couple of dozen visionaries…"
The second Blockchain Economic Forum in Singapore, which ran on February 4-6, attracted 100+ first-class speakers including former president of Mexico Vicente Fox.
The previous edition of BEF was held in San Francisco June 16-20 2018.
This time, BEF attracted 200+ speakers including 2 former ministers of Finance, Tim Draper (DFJ Fund), CFTC chairman (under Obama's administration) as well as investors with $30+ bn assets under management and even robot Sophia!
