Travel disruptions early in the week saw large numbers of speakers and attendees diverted across the Middle East, all of whom surmounted significant obstacles to attend and participate at TOKEN2049 Dubai. Amongst the 200+ leading industry voices who took to the stage to share their insights, discuss the most prevalent topics in Web3, and unveil exciting news announcements were Pavel Durov, the visionary CEO of Telegram; Richard Teng, CEO of Binance; Paolo Ardoino, CEO of Tether; and Arthur Hayes, Co-Founder of BitMEX. 

Some standouts include a joint announcement onstage by Tether and Telegram that USDT will launch on The Open Network (TON) and Telegram wallet; Polkadot’s Gavin Wood introduced a new JAM chain graypaper; Berachain announced a collaboration with Google Cloud; and Telos unveiled a partnership with Ponos Technology to develop a hardware-accelerated Ethereum L2 zkEVM network, amongst many more ground-breaking announcements.

Fiskum continued: “We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from all participants across TOKEN2049 Dubai. Energized by this success, we now shift focus to prepare for the industry’s largest event of the year — TOKEN2049 Singapore, taking place on September 18-19 before the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend. TOKEN2049 Singapore will welcome 20,000 attendees to the iconic Marina Bay Sands, continuing to set new standards for the industry.”
