Token Summits in SF and NYC

The Token Summit, run by AVC regulars William Mouyagar and Nick Tomaino, announced two more events in the coming months, Dec 5th 2017 in San Francisco and May 17 2018 in New York.

The first Token Summit was held in NYC at NYU last May, and sold out. Here’s a highlight reel from it.

Today, William and Nick have published the agenda for the San Francisco conference, and you can find it here. It is being held at the Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF, in a hall that will fit 600 people.

Some of USV’s portfolio companies will be presenting, and I am sure William and Nick will have yet another successful event. If you want to learn about where the token economy is going, and network with the entrepreneurs and companies who are leading it, the Token Summit is a great place to do that.

    Thanks Fred. We’re looking forward to it, and will focus on the business models, success factors and best practices for designing sound token-based models, applications, protocols and platforms.

      Ken, nooo, why not SF? I’m just now reorganizing to somehow make it. It would be fantastic to see each other there again. May is too far considering the speed of things in crypto 🙂

      1. William Mougayar

        Do both :)Crypto is on dog years.

          Unfortunately I broke my leg three weeks ago and I was unable to come to CryptoExplorers2 even though Jeremy and I spoke about that presentation I promised. Will see each other soon for sure. We are cooking some special crypto juice that you will love 😉

    no love for Europe.i wonder what market conditions will be like in May 2018. Boom or gloom?i would be nice to think that the scammers will have had their pips squeezed by then. the space needs cleansing.

    1. Matt A. Myers

      Thought just came to me: all of the scamming can and will be avoided once blockchain crypto-assets are government/state-mandated, the non-pyramid scheme-like incentivized blockchain types.

      1. jason wright

        what do you see as the incentive drivers? how will that work?

        1. Matt A. Myers

          The incentive is the value of an immutable ledger (and perhaps a few others) – and that it will be the law, state-mandated. Of course the general population will need to be up to speed/educated on its value to then want or accept policies to be implemented. I am sure that won’t be an easy task as with the growing number of the people looking to make tons of profit will be crying foul/murder – and who won’t want to lose their very risky investments in a crypto-asset they’re hoping to make a return on. You’ll have everyone screaming it’s not possible … yet we’ll have the framework and current technology well developed. Just because businesses perhaps then won’t feel like they want to integrate with a blockchain because they won’t make an unreasonable return, well, that will be a struggle on the other end – and will show these people are only doing it for the profit, and not the value that it apparently will bring society. I understand making a lot of profit is an exciting thing, more so for a VC and entrepreneurs than the average person – however hopefully that will be eventually balanced out with reason and fairness.
