What Awaits You at FORKED: Unveiling Web3 Gaming and SocialFi. A Dual Narrative Driving User Growth for Web3 

The future of gaming is about more than just entertainment; it’s about creating value, experiencing true ownership, and becoming part of a community. Digital interactions are now intertwined with financial opportunities, driven by blockchain technology, making money while entertaining and pushing for the major adoption of new gamified economic models.

We’re on the edge of a new era where social interaction and play blend seamlessly with financial elements. Witnessing its growth and adaptation is one of the most enchanting parts of engaging with Web3 every day.

It’s not the next big thing. It’s already here. It’s a new era, and FORKED wants to step in with the community. 

Attendees will gain insights from KOLs on emerging trends, engage in thrilling gaming competitions, experience latest Web3 games and developments in SocialFi, and immerse in a dynamic atmosphere. With a carefully curated guest list of 1,000 Web3 founders, gamers, executives, investors, influencers, and media, anticipate unmatched networking and matchmaking opportunities.

Building on the momentum after a successful debut of “Founder’s Stories” featuring Coingecko, Rug Radio, Decrypt, and ARC Community at FORKED on May 8th in Hong Kong, FORKED in Seoul will continue to deliver this insightful format, where Founders share challenges and setbacks of building in Web3.

Forked Igniting Web3 Gaming & SocialFi Horizon with Powerhouse Collaborations 

This time FORKED is raising the bar by partnering with even more industry giants and influential players, continuing its path to creating a valuable platform for Web3 founders at the critical stage of their growth. 

Spearheading this collaborative effort is Korea Blockchain Week (KBW), making FORKED the official partner event and the only Web3 Gaming conference as an official part of KBW.

In an exciting development, FORKED has officially announced Everest Ventures Group (EVG), Asia’s leading Web3 venture builder, as co-host of FORKED in Seoul.

“We are really excited about co-hosting this event with FORKED and their experienced team. By co-hosting this conference, it showcases our commitment to driving consumer adoption of Web3. We believe that the ‘Axie Moment’ of SocialFi will happen this cycle likely in Asia, and it will be key to boosting blockchain-based games for long-term adoption,” said Allen Ng, the Co-founder & CEO at EVG.

FORKED continues its journey with its powerful strategic partners — ARC Community, AngelHack, Coinhako, Highstreet, FACTBLOCK, and Playground — to leverage their vast resources and create a more dynamic and productive environment for all involved parties.. 

ARC is a digital-first community, enabled by NFTs as proof of membership.

AngelHack is a global leader in developer relations and hackathons, with a vibrant community of over 300,000 developers across 100 cities worldwide. 

Coinhako is Singapore’s most trusted crypto exchange and wallet, with official approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for a Major Payment Institution (MPI) license.

Highstreet is a cutting-edge commerce-centered metaverse, merging shopping with gaming to create an immersive experience. With cosmetics from top brands and the ability to craft NFTs for gameplay, it’s revolutionizing virtual worlds.

They organize Korea Blockchain Week (KBW), an annual global festival that brings together diverse blockchain communities to share knowledge and foster meaningful interactions.

PLAYGROUND is the user acquisition layer for web3 games. It is a dynamic platform that empowers creators and developers to quickly design, build, and share engaging games.

FORKED, a Web3 founder-focused event brand, is the latest venture by Addy Creeze, a serial crypto conference organizer and builder since 2014, will grace SJ. Kunsthalle in Seoul, Korea on September 2, 2024. 

FORKED Gaming is a new initiative exploring Web3 Gaming and SocialFi, two thriving Web3 narratives.
