A Space to Discuss
Our virtual and in-person events bring people together to join conversations that matter. Previous examples include:
How will El Salvador’s Bitcoin experiment shift the global narrative around crypto adoption?
We explore the status of Bitcoin adoption by countries and the deeper implications of this development.
Speakers: Peter McCormack (Host of “What Bitcoin Did” podcast); Matt Hussey (crypto journalist)
Who does the future belong to? Bitcoin vs. altcoins?
Maximalists vs. altcoin enthusiasts? While Bitcoin supporters cheer for a ubiquitous rein, others see a diverse future of interoperable financial instruments. Where is the thin line between maximalism and broader cryptocurrency diversification?
Speakers: Alex Mashinsky (Celsius); Raoul Pal (Real Vision); Leah Wald (Valkyrie); Annabelle Huang (Amber)
The Future of the Global Economy.
How do these new technologies shape the future of our macroeconomy? Is the future of finance decentralized? How do we usher in a new age of prosperity for all?
Speakers: Caroline Malcolm (OECD); Alex Tapscott (Blockchain Research Institute); Erik Voorhees (Shapeshift); Wayne Huang (XREX)

The only Asia-based, mainstream blockchain & crypto media
The only team of award-winning, experienced journalists covering this space exclusively in Asia
The only source of independent reporting that is unaffiliated with major crypto backers
We started Forkast in 2018 with a thesis: blockchain, digital asset and cryptocurrency will shape the future of finance, trade and industries spanning retail to medicine. We covered the potential of NFTs for gaming in 2018, when nobody had heard of NFTs.
In 2019, we released the first industry-leading China Blockchain Report charting China’s growing ambitions in blockchain.
Our next report, The Unstoppable Rise of Digital Assets, launched on the same day Bitcoin reached an all-time high after a year-long slump in 2020, marking the next phase of exponential growth.
In 2021, we reported on stories of young people in the Philippines making multiple times their wages through a new game called Axie Infinity — all before these stories hit mainstream media.
Every step of the way, we’ve spotted these trends from our home base in Asia. Now in 2022, we’re one of the first publishers to launch an NFT-based membership to serve our growing worldwide community.
The Forkast+ community represents executives and leaders from within the industry and those looking to harness blockchain/crypto in their own industries. We have access to influential voices, so you can understand how to think about the industry and what is driving it.
“Forkast has single-handedly elevated some of the most important issues in blockchain and digital assets in APAC and beyond. The coverage and the work coming from Forkast is such a vital part of the ecosystem.”
CEO, Crypto Council for Innovation

Managing Director, Ripple
