"We recognized the need in the marketplace for a more curated, intimate, and pragmatic space to hold the crucial conversations between all stakeholders, while simultaneously providing a platform to identify, develop, and amplify the most promising technologies. Seeing the signal through the noise and building a new future together requires World Tokenomic Forum members to invoke sound pattern-recognition while mentoring, connecting, and capitalizing the innovators of tomorrow to maximize our collective economic potential."
