Future X - The Ten Pillars of Token Economy

Stay tuned for our next event 

WHAT IS FUTURE X?

Future X’s mission is to make the token economy more accessible by deconstructing the multifaceted pillars into ten manageable segments.

Each of these segments play a crucial role in molding this new economy. During this event we have the opportunity to explore each segment in length to provide the full picture.

WHY ATTEND?

Bringing together the leaders from the ten pillars of the token economy, Future X provides attendees the opportunity to learn from influential opinion leaders and pioneers who have been instrumental in shaping the token economy.

 

THE 10 PILLARS OF
TOKEN ECONOMY

01

AUDIT

The defining feature of digital assets and the characteristics of audit creates a juxtaposition. It is a contrast of anonymity vs. clarity but it is exactly what is needed to push this industry forward, giving confidence to all stakeholders.

02

DEVELOPERS

There is a growing demand for blockchain developers as evident of LinkedIn reporting the biggest growing field on its platform was blockchain development, For this industry to hit it’s full stride, new innovations and usage need to be created to support the ecosystem and this is where developers can lend a hand.

03

FUNDS

Funds are always looking for new ways to diversify their holdings or explore exotic strategies to differentiate from others. This new asset class presents an intriguing opportunity provided the funds’ mandate changes accordingly. Do Security Tokens allow for an easier way for funds to enter the space?

04

INSTITUTIONS

With the recent blockchain adoptions from JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Facebook, Twitter and other institutions, we are almost 100% certain this asset class is here to stay. Let’s hear from the institutions firsthand.

05

INSURANCE

For digital assets to gain confidence from a wider audience, certain requirements must be met. One of them is adequate insurance against theft to mitigate risk. Today we witness the launch of Asia’s first digital asset custody solution.

06

LEGAL

Legal helps us guide through a largely unregulated blockchain ecosystem. It provides a level of assurance that recourse can be obtained when there is a dispute. Experts in this area help bridge the gap between the blockchain world and traditional law makers.

07

MEDIA

Media has the ability to shift the balance of a subject matter as eccentric as digital assets. The ecosystem requires robust journalism, as market volatility is more prevalent in this infant asset class.

08

REGULATIONS

Without clear regulations, digital assets is stifled. Entrepreneurs and institutions sit on the sidelines for fear of running afoul of the law. Regulation offers reliability, consistency and accountability, all key ingredients in making digital assets more accessible.

09

RETAIL

Retailers are increasingly accepting digital assets as a payment method globally. We will explore interesting use cases and how this decentralized and efficient form of money is being applied.

10

TOKEN CHAMPION

When all the hype and band wagoners tailor off, it’s the blockchain champions that steady the ship and set course to the promised land. They were here before the fandom and will continue to be here after the dust settles. They truly are the pillars of the token economy.
