BGA at Token2049, One of the Headline Events of the Year!

If ever anyone doubted how buoyant the web3 space is, Token2049 proved that it is fully alive and kicking, with web3 gaming high on the agenda.

The conference saw over 7000 attendees from across the blockchain space, with many embracing gaming as a key usecase for Blockchain and providing the doorway to mass adoption.

And it was never so apparent as at the BGA booth!

Key Takeaways
Many projects within the region and beyond are seeking access to the web3 gaming community and looking to BGA activities to leverage its activities and network as a vehicle for collaboration and setting industry standards.

BGA was well-received, with many already aware of our activities and understanding of our mission to raise awareness and promote blockchain for gaming — as well as many projects within the ecosystem wanting to join the community that they see as essential for the industry’s growth.

BGA is excited about the future collaborations and contacts we made at the event, with major players in Asia looking to us to expand the global network and, similarly, US and European-based projects wanting to access the Asian market, making this event highly valuable for international projects.

The event itself saw several web3 gaming panel discussions that advanced the conversation and focused on looking into the future, with topics such as Web3 Gaming and the Path Towards an Open Metaverse, Bringing Gaming, and IP Into the Future.

The conference also saw an array of web3 dedicated side events, including some of which BGA had the pleasure of attending. Our own side event, in collaboration with Ladder, BinaryX, and ByteTrade Lab, saw over 1000 registrations.

At the booth
Over the two days, five projects showcased at the BGA booth. Earn Alliance joined us with a wheel of fortune to win prizes for their game Last Remains. Icon X World took attendees for a spin on the track with their racing game demo, Ekoios Technology showcased their product, Haechi labs with Face Wallet, and Litlabs’ Cybertitans challenged booth attendees into battle.
