Last week, the entire crypto and Web3 ecosystem was in town for TOKEN2049 Singapore, the industry's first major in-person event in the region ahead of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022 race weekend.
Apart from attending the main event, we also co-sponsored the Polkadot Lounge Party and spoke at the Algorand Developer Greenhouse Tech Talk as well!
Polkadot Lounge Party
To kick off the highly-anticipated TOKEN2049, SubQuery joined hands with stakeholders and projects from the Polkadot ecosystem such as Astar, Ajuna, and Moonbeam, in co-organising a Polkadot Lounge Party to host the local DOT community, as well as create a familiar and communal environment to welcome the broader community into the Polkadot ecosystem.
The event, supported by the Web3 Foundation, was a success, with an exciting line-up of core teams exchanging their views and insights on the current development of the ecosystem, as well as key Polkadot stakeholders, like Rae from Parity and Obi from the Web3 Foundation sharing important information about the current status and future plans for the ecosystem.
Algorand Developer Greenhouse Tech Talk
Our COO James Bayly spoke at the Algorand Developer Greenhouse Tech Talk, explaining to current and future devs how to index Algorand easily with the help of SubQuery!
Algorand's Greenhouse Tech Talks are designed to cultivate your skills through key learning opportunities, networking events with peers and investors, and talks from technology leaders.
As the flagship event of Asia Crypto Week, the conference hit a new milestone with over 250 sponsors and drawing over 3,500 attendees from across the world, making it the largest crypto in-person event of the year in Asia!

Speakers at the event addressed a broad agenda --- from the evolving regulatory landscape and institutional investment trends to the rise of the metaverse, web3, and what all of these ultimately mean for the industry as we gear toward mainstream adoption.
Led by Polkadot and Parity, the Polkadot ecosystem banded together to form a 'Polkadot Pavilion' showcasing the exciting DeFi, NFTs, Metaverse, data indexing, and cross-chain projects across the ecosystem.
