DAO TOKYO, the upcoming blockchain and cryptocurrency conference, has unveiled its first list of speakers who will participate in a panel at the event. The conference is set to take place on April 23, 2022, in Tokyo, Japan, and will feature prominent names in the industry, including Maxwell Kanter from Gitcoin, Lukas Schor, Co-Founder of SAFE DAO, and Matt Wright, DAO Lead at ConsenSys, and others.
According to the organizers, the speakers were chosen from a pool of applicants, and the announcement will be made over the course of the next few weeks. The conference is expected to attract a diverse international audience.
The ticket sales for the conference will be conducted in three waves, with the first wave starting on February 20, 2022, at 24:00 JST. The tickets will be available for purchase at $120 for a standard ticket and $200 for a limited hoodie included ticket. The second and third waves will be announced on Twitter.
To purchase tickets, buyers will need to complete a TypeForm questionnaire, which will be sent to their email or posted on social media once the ticket sales are open. After completing the questionnaire, the ticket site link will be displayed on-screen, and a confirmation email will be sent to the registered email address.
When asked about the inspiration behind the event, the organizers stated,
"As Web3 has become a buzzword over the past few years, crypto conferences worldwide have attracted people from all walks of life. In this context, at DAONYC, which I attended last year, everyone I met was well-versed in DAOs and eager to learn and contribute to DAOs. From this perspective, we decided to hold this event to start a movement to spread the enthusiasm and leading wisdom of DAOs in Asia."
Regarding the selection of Tokyo, Japan, as the location for the conference, the organizers stated,
"We thought, 'who better to hold a major DAO event in Asia than us?,' and is located in one of the major hubs in Asia; we also wanted to build a bridge between DAO East and DAO West and help strengthen the community environment in this region."
The organizers have prioritized holding the conference offline this time to increase the density of the heat on-site. However, the sessions will be recorded and distributed later on the YouTube channel "DAOTV." From the next time onwards, online distribution will be possible.
