The inaugural Hong Kong Web3 Festival is a digital asset-focused conference co-hosted by the HashKey Group and Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, and organised by W3ME at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event is expected to draw more than 10,000 offline attendees and will be held in sync with the Hong Kong International Innovation and Technology Exhibition (InnoEX), organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), branded together as the Business Week of Innovation and Technology (BitWeek) hosted by HKTDC.

The Hong Kong government’s policies formulated to develop and grow the city’s virtual asset industry and ecosystem have been one of the reasons why Hong Kong was chosen as the city to host the inaugural Web3 Festival. The Policy Statement on Development of Virtual Assets in Hong Kong issued by the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau of Hong Kong on October 31, 2022, has been actively working on the development of the virtual assets industry by launching tokenized green bonds, e-HKD, amongst a host of initiatives. The Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 will invite regulatory representatives to introduce the Hong Kong Government’s latest regulatory policies and the way forward for the virtual asset industry.

The Web 3.0 Demo Day (April 14-15) is one of the major focuses at the conference. 50 shortlisted teams and crypto projects that pass the initial screening round will be given the opportunity to showcase and present their innovation and technology in front of leading venture capitalists, investment institutions, and Web3 enthusiasts at the conference.

Mr. Zhao, also known as CZ, is a pioneer within the blockchain industry. He launched Binance in July 2017, and within 180 days, grew Binance into the largest digital asset exchange in the world by trading volume. CZ has built Binance into the leading blockchain ecosystem, comprised of Binance Exchange, Labs, Launchpad, Academy, Research, Trust Wallet, Charity, NFT, and more. CZ spent his youth flipping burgers before studying at McGill University Montreal. In 2005, CZ quit his role as head of the Bloomberg Tradebook Futures Research & Development team and moved to Shanghai to start Fusion Systems. Soon thereafter, he learned about Bitcoin and joined Blockchain.com as Head of Technology.

The Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 will be an excellent opportunity for digital asset projects who are pondering a move to Hong Kong to have a better understanding of the city’s opportunities, challenges, talent pool, and educational resources. The Honourable Paul CHAN Mo-po, GBM, GBS, MH, JP, Financial Secretary of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, will also speak at the Opening Ceremony of the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023.

In conclusion, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 is set to be one of the largest and most important crypto-focused conferences in Hong Kong. The event will bring together a diverse group of individuals, including industry leaders, venture capitalists, investment institutions, and Web3 enthusiasts to discuss the future of digital assets and blockchain technology. The presence of CZ as the closing speaker on the Opening Day of the conference is sure to attract a lot of attention and generate interest in the event.
