Digital public Infrastructure PlatON will host The Global Payment in Web 3, a sub-forum of the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023, on the afternoon of April 13, 2023. The forum has invited big-name guests from around the world to deliver keynote speeches on topics including the development of blockchain payment technology, the trend of borderless payments fostered by Web3, the opportunities and challenges facing cryptocurrency in cross-border payments, regulatory compliance of stablecoins, and how the Web3 gaming industry integrates with payments. Through thought-provoking discussions between guests from different backgrounds such as the banking industry, the gaming industry, acquiring institutions, and issuing institutions, the forum will explore whether new payment standards based on blockchain ledgers and Payment Tokens will transform our definition of “money.”

The Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023, co-hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs and HashKey Group and organized by W3ME, will take place from April 12 to 15 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC). The event will be in sync with the “Hong Kong International Innovation and Technology Exhibition (InnoEX) 2023” sponsored by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The two events, among all activities, will be part of the “Innovation and Technology Business Week (BITWEEK)”, a program championed by the HKCEC.

The four-day Festival, including five venues, will invite more than 300 globally influential speakers to share cutting-edge Web3 tech proposals. The event is expected to attract over 100 promising Web3 projects, communities and media, more than 10,000 attendees, as well as leading venture capitals, presenting content-rich discussions and topics centered around Web3. Hong Kong regulatory representatives will also dive into and interpret the latest digital asset regulation policies.

Web3 Festival will offer all attendees an opportunity to learn the cutting-edge technology, inspiring opinions, trending topics and infrastructural solutions of Web3. At the event, top VC firms in the industry will explore the Web3 trends and seek investment in promising projects, providing support for young Web3 talents and start-up teams. Additionally, regulatory representatives are also invited to introduce Hong Kong Government’s latest regulatory policies and the way forward for the Web3 and virtual asset industry. This will hopefully help Web3 projects ponder a move to Hong Kong to have a better understanding of the opportunities, challenges, talent pool, education resources and favorable policies here. Today, Web3 is booming, with new categories demonstrating great market potential. We hope that Web3 Festival could provide an enabling start-up platform for outstanding talents around the world and spark more enthusiasm for innovation.
