4. TOKEN2049 – Dubai and Singapore

Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini, Arthur Hayes, founder of BitMex, Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, and Balaji Srinivasan, former CTO of Coinbase, were ready to take the stage at TOKEN2049, Dubai.

Unfortunately, TOKEN2049 in Dubai on April 18-19 was marred by unprecedented rainfall in Dubai in the days before — causing severe disruption across roads and flights as well as flooding in the conference hall itself.

It’s extremely bad luck for the city and the organizers, and we wish the TOKEN2049 team all the luck for the Singapore event across September 18-19, 2024.
