Co-hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs and HashKey Group, and organised by W3ME, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 will take place from April 12 to 15.
HONG KONG, 29 March 2023 — We are pleased to announce that the White Paper on “Web3 New Economy and Tokenisation” will be released during the “Tokenising the Future” panel, the highlight event of the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 on April 15th.
Token economics is fundamental of the Web3 new economy, aimed at creating a fairer, more open, and transparent economic system that allows everyone to participate and benefit. Currently, tokenisation has been widely applied in areas such as virtual assets, decentralised finance (DeFi), and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The White Paper on “Web3 New Economy and Tokenisation” will explore the prospect that all values can be tokenised, starting from the underlying logic and evolutionary trends of Web3, and discussing issues related to currency policies and mechanism design involved in token economics. Furthermore, the White Paper focuses on innovative design for tokenisation projects, enabling Web3’s new economy to surpass the digital economy.
