HYCON Team and Community Leaders meet to prepare for the week ahead in Hong Kong

Team HYCON Makes a Splash in Hong Kong

Looking back on a full-week of festivities with Token2049 and the global blockchain community.

Packed with an all-star list of speakers and industry leaders from around the world, Team HYCON decided that Token 2049 — March 20th ~ 21st in Hong Kong — was the perfect time and place to make an impression. And what a week it was…

Pre-Game Huddle

Team HYCON began the week by holding a team meeting on the Sunday evening at our hotel where 12 teammates gathered to prepare for the upcoming events. Our team included lead developers, marketing and communications experts, community leaders (in from USA, Germany & HK), our head translator, and even our film crew (in from LA) was there to properly capture the moment.

This was the first time the international members of the HYCON crew were able to meet in person and after a couple of drinks and laughs, the team got down to business setting the agenda for the week ahead.

Event 1 — Industry Experts Discussion Panel

We’d like to give a very special thank you to all of the panelists for their insightful contributions and to the Koh Vass & Co. and BCW teams in Hong Kong who helped make this night such a success.

Token 2049

Token 2049 was a huge success thanks to the quality lineup of those giving speeches and to the strength of the 1000+ attendees — and Team HYCON was very easy to find at the event!

Hyper-Connected HYCON coffee; no better way to start the day!

As an official partner of the Token 2049 event, Team HYCON also sponsored the coffee stations on day 1, as well as the lunch buffet on the same day.

Additionally, Team HYCON made a strong presence at the conference thanks to the whole team sporting their HYCON t-shirts throughout the 2-day event.

Overall, Token 2049 was a great success and allowed Team HYCON to network and make friends with several prominent figures within the industry.

Event 2 — Team HYCON VIP Party

The HYCON VIP Party vibe was established nicely at Ce La Vi HK

To cap off Token 2049 in style, we decided to host our own private roof-top VIP soirée at Hong Kong’s famed CÉ LA VI and were honored by the distinguished group of guests who chose to spend their evening with Team HYCON.

Again, thanks to everyone who attended this special occasion and to all of those who made it such a great success — we wish we could have invited everyone!

Event 3 — ICO Pitch Night

Rounding out the last night of our stay in Hong Kong was yet another great Team HYCON co-sponsored event, which saw HYCON lead developer Niall Moore get up on stage and deliver a tech-laden discussion to a very interested audience.

All in all, Hong Kong was a great success for the HYCON project and was just the first of many more international engagements to come.

As always, thank you for your interest and support in our project and we look forward to powering hyperconnected blockchain solutions.
