Crypto Explorers Goes On The Road

The Crypto Explorers community was seeded right here on AVC. It is a community of over 200 people who are working in the crypto sector, interested in the crypto sector, and/or are invested in the crypto sector.

They have taken five group trips to Zug Switzerland (Crypto Valley) and built friendships, learned a ton, and had some fun too.

I found out yesterday that they are going global now, with planned trips to other crypto hot spots around the world.

The next trip is in a couple weeks to Singapore on November 26-27. And spots like Korea, Hong Kong, Malta and eventually the Americas are also on the roadmap.

If you want to join this community of crypto travelers and join the trip to Singapore, you can do that here.

    Cheers Fred, the community is well-infused with AVC mojo!Can’t wait to meet a bunch of you at our gatherings, somewhere, soon!

    I thought the idea was originally incubated when Ken met Jeremy at the first Tolen Summit in NYC. Ken? Then it got promoted here.

          a thousand fathers….and mothers ;-)I would say that both of you (and many others) were key catalysts towards the original idea.All three of us (Ken, Marcelo, and I) are grateful for the support.Thank you.

      I heard it was at the Stolen Summit.No idea is original. It’s all about execution.

        Stolen Summit? Typo?

          What’s a typo between friends?A Stollen Summit would be irresistible.

        great comment, i get it. Although that’s not quite what’s going on here 😉

          It was never in doubt Ken :)Keep up the good work.

      i didn’t attend that event (oversold out on a rainy day, from what i heard). But continue to give you a nod of influence, like i did in Fred’s previous post’s comments.

        I thought that proved to be a bonus as you met Jeremy outside, no?

          I came up with the idea at Consensus that year. Posted it on my blog. Ken and I met virtually first and, IRL, for the first time in Zurich airport on the morning of Crypto Valley Trip 1.Token Summit was amazing, even if I couldn’t get in the room. Still wear the hat proudly.

            yep, Jeremy wrote his post mentioning his idea to go to Switzerland and take some meetings. I got in touch, “knowing” him from the AVC community, proposed “Let’s think bigger and make this a global community since crypto (in summer ’17) is a lonely place”. Then Marcelo came along later and helped especially with on-the-ground logistics.BTW: that post was a well-done summary of Token Summit, Consensus, and the state of things last May and is super interesting to re-read today.

    This is great – I see a few familiar faces on here.What’s the ultimate goal behind Crypto Explorers? I see a good opp between Token Daily and this community…if you want to jam on this, email is soona [at] tokendaily [dot] co

      Good question.We are a community that is all about bringing deep thinkers and crypto curious together in locations around the world. Roundtable format to explore ongoing opportunities and challenges around topics crypto and greater blockchain.We keep it small and intimate rather than big and star-studded. We’ve done it roughly once a quarter so far, and each trip brings an interesting new batch (and different crypto-economic landscape 😉 ).Best thing to do is apply for a trip, sign up for the newsletter, or contact us via our website:
