The summit started off with the keynote speech from CEO of Litecoin Haus and director of Litecoin, Franklyn Richards, who discussed the purpose behind the use of blockchain technology and how it can improve many different industries.

In his keynote speech, host of Off The Chain podcast and founder of Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano focused on transitioning into a digital world.

Other prominent speakers included Patrick Dai, founder of QTUM Foundation, who discussed the idea behind cryptocurrency and the issues it solves; Larry Sanger, the co-founder of Wikipedia and CIO of newly Everipedia, who shared his thoughts on how we’re losing our privacy to big social media companies and his plan to use Everipedia to decentralize the information; Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of the decentralized AI network SingularityNET, who spoke on decentralized AI and what it could mean for our society, and others.

The summit featured a number of panel discussions. The first panel discussion, with the theme “Does Blockchain Need Elon Musk? Fighting For Mainstream Use,” saw participation from five of the biggest corporations in Japan – Microsoft Japan, LINE Corporation, IBM Japan, Fujitsu, and Oracle Corporation Japan – and was moderated by Michimasa Naka, Founder of Boardwalk Capital.

It included Valentin Preobrazhenskiy of Latoken, founder of Blockvc Kevin Hsu, Lawyer from So Law Office So Saito and was moderated by Publish Inc CEO Sonny Kwon.

One of the main sponsors of the summit, Z-Pop Dream, showcased their entertainment project of creating two k-pop bands with each member from a different country in Asia. Their token will be used for subscriptions, purchases, voting, messaging, and video rewards on their platform.
