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)

About Us

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.
